    USE ONLY FOR EMERGENCY PURPOSES. THIS OVERWRITES EVERYTHING!!!!

    **THIS WILL RETURN YOU TO FRESH OUT OF THE BOX**

    You will not need any special drivers loaded, etc...

    1. Download the stock ROM ZIP image from here: [Evo 3D] - Untouched Stock ROMs - Zip Format and rename it "PG86IM.zip"
    2. Copy it to SD Card
    3. Reboot phone into hboot mode by holding volume down and then press power. Keep volume down held until you boot into hboot mode.
    4. In hboot mode the phone will scan the SD card with the image. Once it finds it will ask you if you want to update. Press "Power" to update.
    5. Wait.... For a while. When it gets to "system" it will loop a few times. Its quite nerve wracking actually but after about 5 or 6 times it will complete.
    6. Once the entire flash is complete it will prompt you to "press power to reboot." Press power and your phone will reboot to 100% stock ROM.
    7. Once the phone has been flashed you will need to set the secure flag on the radio for S-ON to do this use "fastboot oem writesecureflag 3" Make sure you are in fastboot menu. To do this power down and hold power down while powering up and select fastboot. I have attached the fast boot and adb files to the post.



    Hit the THANKS button if I just helped you get back to square one! lol
    Will this work if I can only get into fastboot, NOT BOOT INTO RECOVERY
    moreover if i'm already s-on (hboot 1.5), do i need to writesecureflag 3

    thanks and regards

    As far as I understand, those of us on 1.5 don't need the writesecureflag, as that sets the radio to S-ON, which we already have.

    As to the first part, I think if you re-lock the bootloader (fastboot oem lock) while in the bootloader/fastboot then rename and copy the .zip onto the SD card, it'll flash without ever going into recovery.

    Here's the post where I got my info from:
    xda-developers - View Single Post - [ROM] STOCK 2.17.651.5 Update.zip + Radio/Firmware bits


    Update:
    Yup, worked peachy for me.
    I downloaded a RUU.exe, ran the lock command, ran the RUU within HBoot, and now everything's up to date.

    Hope this helps!

    Please help! I rooted my htc evo 3d hboot 1.5 using the HTCdev method. It worked fine and i had superuser. But then i tried to flash over a silverneedle kernal and it made my wifi say error. so i tried deleting the silverneedle kernel and erased data / cache and tried RCMix instead. still said wifi error. I tried flashing a new rom (MIUI) because i forgot to backup my original hardware. It didnt work and now im in boot loop. I can get to my recovery screen and fast boot so still can mount my SD but whenever i try to reboot my phone it just says HTC for about 15 seconds then shuts off. Any help would be great and if it would be easier for you to call me or skype me so you can see or hear whats happening thatd be great but otherwise can you please respond and help me get my phone back into a usable state?

    I bought the HTC evo3d from someone on craigslist because my old phone was shattered. It is rooted and i never had a rooted phone before so for the most part i am clueless. I read up on everything about it last night so i have a better understanding now. my issue is that the phone keeps randomly shutting off multiple times a day. It does it when its being used or when its just sitting on the table. I read around and saw that other people had this issue and it was a bad Rom. I have decided that i just want to go back to stock to see if the issue is resolved. The directions seem pretty easy to follow, except the last step (7) is a bit confusing. I have no need to send it to sprint or anything. just want it to work. is it necessary for me to do step 7. will it affect anything if i don't?

    Exactly! man how can i get the original recovery? i need it to do the update

    Also a suggestion would be to change the thread title to "return to stock ROM". Not bashing just suggesting. Once again great job and is straight forward.

    man good notices for you, i had a vey similar situation, what you need is simple n.n really simple.

    on terminal (using the faies you used for unlock the hboot) tape: fastboot oem lock, simple like that. now use a executable stock RUU and getting you phone on hboot mode, execute it, and da da! your phone lives again!

    Question Re: [HOW TO] Return to 100% Stock - All versions!

    What I don't like about ICS is that when watching 3D Movies it has lags which didn't happen with Gingerbread. I don't know how to describe it. It's like watching a high res video on a low memory pc.

    Anyone knows how to address that issue?

    Other than that it runs smooth.

    I like watching 3D movies on my EVO.

    Hello all, I have an HTC EVO 3D with HBOOT 1.58. I successfully performed revolutionary's unlock but can't get any further than that. Every image (ROM) i try to install winds up in an endless bootloop. When I drop the bettery out and restart with Power/VolDown, it tells me no img installed. Not sure what I did wrong, but figured maybe going back to stock and then following ramjet's guide would be an option so was ecstatic to find this thread. However this thread a) does not seem to apply to HBOOT 1.58, and even if it did I have checked all the links and can't find one good link to a ROM. Could someone **please** help me? My phone in it's current state is obviously not usable. ANy help appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Scrosler I've hit a wall trying to restore my phone. I tried to unroot my device and failed. Instead I ended up wiping my whole is and now I can only access the hboot, if I turn it on it gets stuck on the htc logo if your method really works if would love to try it but the link for Scott's roms is broken so I would greatly appreciate it if you could send or give me a link to download the rom.
