How to install the recovery on HTC Sensation


If you have followed the previous How To, you must, because they are necessary to continue with this one, you must know I have done it twice. Once with the Sensation XE and the over one with the Sensation.

I have succeed to unlock bootloader and SOff twice with the same method. But I haven't been able to flash the recovery on the Sensation with the same method than the one used for the Sensation XE!

So I have to show you 2 different means to do that.

The first one is my favorite because you understand what you do. The second one is easier because you use a tool!

- Method 1:

- Download the file recovery: recovery-clockwork-touch-
- Restart your phone on fastboot mode.
- Plug your phone to the computer.

- Open the cmd windows on your computer:
Start / run / cmd

- Copy & paste the file downloaded into the tools folder containing the fastboot.exe...

- On the cmd command go the the location to the recovery

mine is: C:/android-sdk-windows/tools

So the command is: cd C:/android-sdk-windows/tools

Then, enter this command:

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-

This command means: I want to flash by the fastboot a recovery named: recovery-clock....

You must see on the cmd 2 times OKAY
If this method failed, you can try the second one.

Now you can use the recovery, try it!

To use it:

Volume up: up arrow
Volume down : down arrow
Power : enter

Method 2:

- Download KGS Utility v6.6 attached to the xda thread
- Connect your phone on HTC Sync

- Run menu.bat On KGS Utility
- Choose Install 4Ext Recovery (number3)
- Then Choose 0
- You want to proceed so press 1
- You device is the only on the list 1
- Download the file recovery: recovery-clockwork-touch-
- Rename it by recovery.img
- Move this file to: KGS_Utility_v6.6/tools

- On cmd press a key to continue
Your device must reboot on fastboot mode

Now, you must have twice OKAY on your computer screen!

You can now follow the next how to: To root your HTC Sensation!

Thanks to XDA
