HTC Rezound ICS hboot, Flashable Via Hboot

If you have upgraded your HTC Rezound to an ICS ROM or later versions of android like the Jellybean, you might have to upgrade your hboot in order to run the ROM smoothly, or the phone might have to keep on restarting while booting on.

Within this page, I have attached an ICS ENG-off hboot with a CWM custom recovery for the HTC Rezound which is also known as vigor in a zip file. This zip file is flashable via hboot and only takes few seconds.

What is ENG-off hboot?

Hboot is the term HTC uses to refer to their android boot loaders which loads and boots either android or recovery. Meanwhile, an ENG-off boot loader gives you the opportunity to modify or flash certain partitions or .img file on the android device like the radio, recovery or even the boot loader itself which ordinarily, you would need root permission to perform some of these tasks within the android.

What Is Custom Recovery?

Unlike the Stock recovery, custom recovery opens the world of freedom and personalisation to you, as an android device user.
With custom recovery installed on your android device, you can backup and restore your entire phone content, flash new ROMs, upgrade and downgrade your phone at will, flash tweaks and more.
