Recovery Image For #HTC Rezound – AmonRa Style


It looks like full steam ahead was given the moment the HTC Rezound got a home here on xda. Things could not be more active at this point. Several devs have already gotten down and dirty working on getting this device ready for the masses by the time they get it. For instance, XDA member drellisdee just released a Recovery Image for this device that is completely based upon the immensely successful AmonRa recovery, which was available for devices such as the EVO 4G and others. Going into this, you will be able to do all the things that you love and are used to such as flash, back up and restore, messing with partitions either in ext3 or ext4 format, and much more.

The installation of this must be done via fastboot due to this device currently being unlockable via HTCDev only. Because of this, the boot partition is locked and must have the boot.img flashed via this method. The Revolutionary team is rumored to be working on making this device compatible with their unlocking app (although these are just rumors), but for the time being, the only available way is via HTC’s service. Please share your experiences with this new Recovery if you managed to get it installed.
