13.11.2012 RIFF JTAG – HTC Wildfire S CDMA (HTC Marvel C) Unbrick – Dead Boot Repair and full Support

Resurrecting HTC WildFireS CDMA is easy with RIFF Box. Phone is auto powered on with USB Data Cable connected to the PC. Battery presence is not required; connection can be established with detached board.
In case you have no USB cable near, make sure battery is charged enough and hold Power On button during initiation of JTAG connection.
Resurrector will reflash radio’s boot zone and will re-write PDA’s SPL to 1.09.0000 (for NAND chips with 4Kb page size). Additionally to SPL and Radio zones, the zone which contains Model ID is re-flashed too. Thus after resurrection phone will have Model ID = ‘PG7620000’. Additionally, you can check ‘Repair RECOVERY zones’ to reflash android BOOT and RECOVERY code.
