    Lightbulb [HOW-TO] ╰╮╰╮REVOLUTIONARY╰╮╰╮ Get S-OFF, Recovery and Perm-Root!

    [NOTE]Hey all, this is a HOW TO for all you out there that are ready to take controll of your EVO 3D!

    First off.. I did NOT create any of this. This is just HOW TO.

    REQUIREMENTS : You MUST have the HTC drivers installed and HTC Sync UNINSTALLED for this to work.

    YOU MUST BE HBOOT 1.3 or 1.4. If you have the most recent update of 1.5 you need to unlock via HTC.

    A BIG THANKS TO UNREVOKED AND ALPHA REV!
    [/NOTE]

    [INFO]
    HOW TO GET S-OFF

    1. Go to Revolutionary and select your PC type... This will start the download of the Revolutionary.zip

    2. Next is to apply for a Beta Key, this is NOT AN OPTION. You will need your HBOOT version number ie. 1.30 or 1.40, as well as your Serial Number. The serial Number is printed on your EVO under the battery.

    3. Boot up your 3D and make sure USB Debugging is ON. Now you can connect your 3D via USB. Make sure its in Charge Only Mode.

    4. Extract the downloaded ZIP and run the file "revolutionary"

    5. It will prompt you for your beta key.

    6. Once this is done it will go thru automated scripts and reboot your phone about 3-4 times before you finally are done.

    CONGRATS! YOU ARE NOW S-OFF!

    Default Re: [HOW TO] Get S-OFF, Flash CWM and Root

    [NOTE]RECOVERY AND ROOT

    REQUIREMENTS:

    S-OFF, Android SDK, HTC Drivers Installed and HTC SYNC UNINSTALLED

    First make sure you have the requirements before starting.[/NOTE]

    [INFO]HOW TO INSTALL RECOVERY:


    Method #1 - Install via Android SDK

    Download the Recovery image:TWRP RECOVERY IMAGE


    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!


    Method #2 - Install via HBOOT

    Download: RECOVERY.zip
    This is the fastest way to get TWRP recovery on your phone. You will still need to have S-OFF to achieve recovery.

    You will find above a ZIP labeled "RECOVERY.zip"

    Download this file and extract it to you desktop, or wherever you would like.

    This will extract the "PG86IMG.zip" file.
    Note: This is the recovery image and NOT the stock image that is available to flash via HBOOT as well...

    Take the PG86IMG.zip file and place it in the ROOT of your SD Card.

    Now all you need to do is Turn your phone off and boot into HBOOT mode ( Vol Down+Power )

    From there the phone will recognize the zip as an update zip and ask you if you would like to flash it.

    Allow the flash of the recovery and then boot back up into your OS.

    From here you will either want to DELETE the zip off of your phone or move it to a folder on your phone labeled recovery via hboot, or something to that affect. The reason for this is that if you do not, everytime you try to boot into recovery you will not be able to because it see's the PG86IMG.zip and automatically runs the script to update. Once this is removed you are good to go and can reboot into Recovery and make a backup.

    [/INFO]

    [WARN]BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE....

    Reboot into Bootloader and choose Recovery.

    MAKE A BACKUP!
    Now you are good to go! Next is root...
    [/WARN]


    [INFO]
    PERMA-ROOT

    For root you need to flash this .zip

    Download here: Superuser Zip

    In order to achieve root..

    Download the su.zip and copy the zip file to the ROOT of your SDCARD.

    Boot into Recovery

    Choose "Install Zip"

    Then "Choose Zip To Flash"

    Then select the "su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip"

    Once it completes, reboot and you now have ROOT access!

    Default Revolution Issue (ClockworkMod)

    Revolutionary worked like a charm for the S-Off, but it did not flash ClockworkMod successfully (said it did, but I cannot boot to recovery at all now, it just reboots to the Sprint logo and boots the rest of the way up.) Does anyone happen to have the CWM file that it downloads? It's not available in Rom Manager yet. Much appreciated if anyone has any ideas, thanks!

    USB cable is fine, as it finds the device just fine.. How do i know if fastboot is off? I have the phone on and at the home screen, plugged USB cable in. USB debugging is turned ON.. ran the exe and keep getting the above when i try to run it after putting in my beta key.

    Fastboot Setting is under Settings-> Power -> Fast boot

    Mine actually worked with it on (I forgot to check for it). I had to uninstall HTC sync though.

    Was HTC Sync something you had to install manually? I don't see it listed in my app drawer or in manage apps > All > ?

    HTC Sync is software on your PC, not your phone

    This worked as well, however I was curious, is this the same image that the Revolutionary program installs, or is this a different image? (Since it failed on my phone I never saw the Clockwork Mod it offered to install, but this looks different than the CWM's I've used in the past).

    Either way, great guide!

    HTC Sync is not installed on your PC, correct? Also is the "Waiting for device" after it says it's rebooting to fastboot?

    Check to see if you have the drivers installed and HTC Sync uninstalled. Also... check to see if adb can see your device... Sounds like an ADB issue with it not seeing your device...

    ADB found my device. And I never installed HTC Sync, even checked to make sure and no, it isn't installed. It only says "Waiting for device..." and nothing else

    You need to install HTC Sync and then Uninstall it. It installs all the needed drivers.
