We had earlier announced the release of the leaked Android 3.2 Honeycomb for HTC Flyer. Now in this tutorial we will give you detailed step by step instructions on how to Download and Install the Android 3.2 HoneyComb on HTC Flyer.
Before we go the tutorials and get you really excited about it we would just like to get your notice to these points :
- This is not the Official Release by HTC so it cant be recommended to novice users.
- This update can be recommended to an experienced expert only.
- This trick is tried and tested on Euro WWE 32GB 3G Flyer so we cant say about other models.
- Do NOT I repeat DO NOT run the RUU in its entirety nor the fastboot flash rom.zip. You will unintentionally make some irreversible changes to your device making it useless.
- Be careful while for flashing any RUU or anything that could revert you to S-ON on a broken system.
- We do not guarantee or take any responsibility of your device. You can proceed on your own risk. This is not a simple update procedure as it is very complex.
Now as we have warned about the possible damage that could be done to the device those who are still excited about getting the update can follow these simple steps :
Step 1 : First things first , download these files which you would need while doing the update.
- The 2.00.405.3 RUU for HTC Flyer [FileSonic Link]
- Honeycomb System image for ClockworkMod recovery [FileSonic Link]
- Honeycomb Radio image [FileSonic Link]
- Honeycomb boot image [FileSonic Link]
- HBOOT [FileSonic Link]
Step 2: In this step you would need to Unlock your HTC Flyer’s bootloader using Revolutionary.
Step 3: Use the Android Debug Bride (ADB) to return to fastboot on your computer by the command
adb reboot bootloader
Step 4: You need to flash the HTC Flyers radio with the Honeycomb Radio you have downloaded in step 1 by using the folowing command in fastboot
