      KingCobra3D works, it’s based on the stock ICS RUU 3.28, and uses the stock kernel… so even if you can’t flash kernels, this works with the stock one anyway:

      Had the same issue, flashed KingCobra3D using 4EXT, Hboot 1.53 htcDev Unlocked, worked for me. Quadrant Benchmark score with this ROM gets to 2100, compared to the stock 1800.

      The ROM got absolutely no bugs, 3D works, has better battery life than stock RUU, pre-rooted, comes with some tweaks like Supercharger V6.

      Flashing this on top of KingCobra gives you Quadrant score around 2900:

      Basically i’ts some build.prop tweaks, BUT also includes adreno_config.txt, which are some good tweaks for the Adreno graphics card, like using Tiled textures for faster rendering, etc..

      Basically makes GTA III playable @25fps 🙂

    • oren says:

      It’s because your Hboot doen’t match to the rom.
      just flash ICS rom insted and downgrade your hboot if you want to flash JB rom

    Hi max,
    Do you have a tutorial how to downgrade my hboot 1.53.777 s-off(wire trick) to hboot 1.49. Hope you can help me. I’m using HTC eco 3d gsm.

  11. efkutis says:

    Hey, download link doesnt work. It downlouds the file till olmost 100% ant then – network error

    • HTC Evo 4G Hacks says:

      make sure you have good internet connection.

    • Seb says:

      I had the same issue for a while, its ur antivirus . It downloads it, then scans it and thinks there is a Trojan so it quarantines it and you get that ‘network error’. Disable ur antivirus (i had to uninstall mine) and it should work fine.

  12. David says:

  19. Igor says:

    Dear administrator,
    I have this situation, telephone htc evo 3d cid 044 and hboot 1.49.0011
    wanted to demote to 1.49.0007 nothing happened, only then saw that it was necessary to change CID, how to be?

  20. Laura says:

    This tutorial is a BAD tutorial. And Max, if you don’t know something, it is OK to say: I don’t know.
    The HTC silver logo is the NORMAL way for the RUU state of the phone, so it’s not about hub, etc, its just normal.
    And yes, you DO have to reboot manually after flashing an RUU image.
    This tutorial is ONLY for downgrading from 1.49.0011 to 1.49.0007. Gingerbread to Gingerbread.

  21. Sabin 96 says:

    Hey Max. Please help me. I changed my cid no. Now what is the next step that I should do?

  22. Tomy says:

    Hello. I have hboot 1.53.0007, S-ON. I did everything as it was shown on the video, but I seem to be stuck in a bootloop. Recovery or factory reset do nothing, they just put me straight back in the bootloader. And before I started, the phone was rooted with “cool ics” – i think. Now, it says “RELOCKED”; and one line under, it says ” Security warning”. Could you please help me get my phone back to work?

    • Tomy says:

      Well, if anyone gets this problem in the future – i just went to – unlock bootloader. Once i unlocked it, i was able to flash the previous thingy. Thats all i know, i hope i helped 🙂
