    yeah i know what you mean as far as playing dumb
    but no i let it complete the activation. i can surf the internet but cant send txt or phone call
    Did you call Sprint yet? I know a guy this happened to and he had to call Sprint and they reset something on there side to resolve this. Happened to a few people, not just you.

    Before you do that make sure you update PRL and profile.

    No you dont but if it doesnt work I will point you back to changing your recovery as supported in this thread. It should work tho.

    Not sure if anyone else noticed yet, but Rom Manager now has EVO3D listed correctly, and ClockworkMod Recovery v.4.0.1.5 successfully flashes. The clockwork image is also available here:

    Good call...as of now I am not adding that to my directions. I have seen A LOT of issues with Clockwork Mod in my previous endeavors. If anyone would like to take the easy way out and use clockwork mod, By all means do so. I am still going to stricktly offer TWRP until they get all the kinks worked out of CWM. Thank you for the info tho and I will post that it is an option. Good find and thank you.

    Not a problem, so far (though your mileage will always vary), it seems to be working decently. I can factory reset without issue on CWM, mount USB, and flash zips/roms. The only issue seems (thus far for me, once again, mileage will vary), it is very slow to reboot the phone when you issue the reboot command (took about three minutes.)

    Still, it means hopefully CM7 nightlies may come soon since they're be flashable now.

    Thanks again for the great thread

    Yes... I too want a fully supported CM7 build. Hoping that they will since this phone is a BEAST!

    Mostly, I'm hoping they can resolve the 3D camera issues, since updates from HTC on it are slow. Hate having to force close my camera after a few shots.

    The calling Sprint thing is normal. Sorry it took so long.

    Am I missing something? I keep seeing people saying how difficult and long this took. It took me literally 3 maybe 4 minutes max to get S off then flash the SU zip.

    Just checking:-P on another note a tried hotspot tether today on 4g and had no issues. The 4g icon stayed visible the entire time and I used my itouch tethered to my phone and streamed Pandora for over a half hour before I shut it off. So I have to say this is a very solid stripped down version of the stock Os. Can't wait to see what else you want to offer us! You ever need beta testers hit me up ;-)

    After phone was set to debug, revolutionary.exe opened, command prompt..waiting for device.... .... then no key? oh well
    htc evo 3d {}windows vista pc

    maybe i shouldnt have tried so I stopped.
    But I'd like to ask anyone who has rooted this phone a few questions before I decide to try again..
    if anyone has time..
    Can I root the phone, then remove crap man lol and crap hornet lol and other programs I wish I wish immediately or is there more steps involved?
    does the factory user interface stay exactly the same?

    Open a command prompt and change the directory to where you have your "sdk\tools" folder installed.

    For me it looks like this... C:\android-sdk-windows\tools\

    Place the downloaded image file into the same directory.

    Reboot phone into Bootloader. "Vol Down + Power"

    Select Fastboot

    Once your phone is in Fastboot mode run this command from the command prompt.

    "fastboot flash recovery C:\android-sdk-windows\tools\recovery-twrp-shooter-1.0.0.img" - WITHOUT THE QUOTATIONS.

    Once it completes tell the Bootloader to Reboot phone.

    TADA! Now you have a working Recovery!

    The phone interface will look exactly the same after you root

    It only changed if you install a custom ROM that has changes, or if you change it yourself.

    You must have sdk on your computer before you begin the process. Refer to the requirements in the second post on page 1. Depending on what version of Windows you have and whether or not it is 32 or 64 bit will determine where the tools folder is located.

    many thanks sir. the writer just mentioned must have JAVA SDK and in his part 2 he uses an adroid SDK. im not sure but I dont think they are the same. anyway 3 Gb to download Java se JDK! holy cow! (is there a thread on this sdk stuff? plus I dont have a 64 bit cpu. I also dont remember the author mentioning having to contact sprint to refresh your phone after s-off. Scary cal..hahah you all are very helpful and I appriciate the tim.e . sucks I just wanted to delete the crappy apps and have to go through developer crap to do it. I reverted back to original ROM after Recovery failed to autoload.

    Good Call! I meant Android SDK. I just updated the posting. Also, most of us DONT have to call Sprint. This does happen sometimes. The recovery that is trying to install in the S OFF portion is Clockworkmod Recovery... It doesn't install for almost everyone that runs the tool. The second portion will install the TWRP recovery, which I feel is much better. Thank you for the heads up on the Java vs Android SDK

    Good catch! I didn't notice because I already had all the tools downloaded from when I started rooting way back with the Optimus S.
