    This must be done after pulling the battery! If you do not pull the battery, you will boot up normally.
    -Hold down Volume Down Button + Power Button long enough to boot to HBOOT.​
    -If you booted up normally right away, you did not pull the battery or are probably connected via USB.


    Use the volume buttons to scroll and the power selects your option.


    If selected stock recovery:
    -Wait for stock recovery to boot (wait for red triangle with explanation point), once loaded, volume up button + power button will bring up stock recovery menu
    -Use volume buttons to scroll, power button to select option.​


    OR, if you wish to accomplish this the nerdy way and you have already set up the Android SDK, you can use these adb and fasboot commands:​


    For Recovery (even with custom recovery flashed):
    Code:
    adb reboot recovery
    For Bootloader:
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
    To simply reboot from bootloader/fastboot modes:
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
    To simply reboot from powered on state:
    Code:
    adb reboot

    From HBOOT mode, scroll down to recovery, and select the power button, phone will act like its rebooting, but will boot to stock recovery.

    You can try a factory reset or run the latest ICS RUU(which will factory reset your phone anyway)

    Ehh you don't have to do a battery pull for this....just make sure fastboot isn't checked in the power options. If it is checked the phone doesn't shut down all the way.

    factory reset

    Question. on the white screen there is a setting that says factory reset. If this was choosen would this bring the phone back to verizon settings and unroot the phone because that is what I am trying to do. I am trying to wipe the phone clean and bring it back to factory settings because I bought it rooted online and I am not a fan of it at all.

    Factory reset only removes your info, it doesn't indeed reset it back to factory. If you're rooted or altered the phone in any way, find the latest RUU and run it in fastboot. You'll reset the phone back to the way it was before you ever turned it on.

    Can you give me a step by step method to do this. I don't want to mess up the phone. I didn't alter the phone. Unfortunately I bought it altered and need help with this. I have seen forums about flashing ruus and stuff I have no idea what any of that is... :-(

    NOTE*** I lifted this from my post on another board...

    Since I'm sure plenty of people aren't taking the "missed" OTA news well and are turning to the leaked RUU's ... I wanted to give a quick how to and some of the things to expect, kind of a mini FAQ I guess...Here goes.


    Foreword: Backup any data you don't want to lose. If you are unlocked, you will need to lock your phone before running this. You must also use an unencrypted SD Card


    Disclaimer: If you follow these steps you are flashing unsupported code on your phone. Understand that the expectations are you understand what you're doing. There are only a few paths back from this and they're all harder than what you're about to read.


    Step 1) Download the leaked RUU. There are several outlets for this but start at the top I guess
    http://www.androidfilehost.com/main/-Support_Files-/RUU/Vigor/RUU_Vigor_3.14.605.10_PH98IMG.zip
    *Updated Link to 6/12/12 leak.
    **This can be used for ANY RUU not just a leak.

    ****If you want to do this all from your PC, skip to step Z


    Step 2) Transfer to your phone's SD card
    If you downloaded it on your phone, use a file manager to move it to /sdcard2/
    If you downloaded it on a PC, connect to your phone and drop is on the external SD(/sdcard/ext_sd)


    Step 3) Rename to PH98IMG.zip
    This can be done during step 2 but it's important enough to know that this HAS TO BE DONE
    Using a file manager, rename your recently downloaded zip file "PH98IMG.zip"


    Step 4) Reboot into HBOOT
    If you're rooted, you can use an app like quickboot
    For everyone else, make sure that fastboot is turned off. Power down your phone. Power up holding Volume down and Power.
    Your phone will start updating...
    Wait about 15 minutes, if it hasn't rebooted do a battery pull.
    Repeat Step 4
    Usually the RUU needs to be flashed twice in order to work.


    Step Z) Download my mini SDK


    Step Y) Unzip the above into the same directory as your RUU


    Step X) Reboot into the bootloader
    If you're rooted, you can use an app like quickboot
    For everyone else, make sure that fastboot is turned off. Power down your phone. Power up holding Volume down and Power.


    Step W) Open a command prompt


    Code:
     cd \temp   **this directory should be where you downloaded the RUU as well as the extracted mini sdk
    fastboot flash zip PH98IMG.zip **replace PH98IMG.zip with your downloaded RUU
    

    Step V) Flash a second time and reboot


    Mini-FAQ:
    Q: Will running this void my warranty?
    A: No


    Q: Will I be able to get the OTA if I do this?
    A: Nobody knows yet. We don't have any real information on the OTA so it's hard to say. However assume the answer is no.


    Q: Will I lose all my pictures?
    A: See the note above that says BACKUP EVERYTHING YOU DON'T WANT TO LOSE


    Q: Will I lose my music?
    A: See above


    Q: Will I lose XYZ?
    A: Really...see above.


    Q: Ok, fine... How do I backup my data?
    A: Titanium backup, Mybackup Pro, and a good few other applications can do this. Most require root to do a thorough job. Sorry, not much way around it.


    Q: Can I go back to the Gingerbread stock ROM after this?
    A: Not unless you unlock and use a ROM or S-Off.


    Q: I've done the leak and get horrible XYZ.
    A: That's not really a question but you should understand that this is not an official update and anything that comes as part of it is by and large unsupported.


    Q: I've followed your guide to the letter but when I get into HBOOT nothing happens
    A: If your SD Card is encrypted, use a non-encrypted card.
