    Exclamation [HOW TO] Return to 100% Stock - All versions!

    I am writing this because I had to do it. I hosed my phone and could not get it to boot into OS. I did get it to boot into recovery, and fast boot. This will work if you can get that far.

    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.

    Thanks! This is what I was waiting for before I did the naughty with s-off.

    On my old Intercept I always kept a stock ROM on my SD card just in case.

    Yeah, I dont blame you. I just learned the hard way not flash a.... Well nevermind that, lol.

    I was stuck in boot loop and could only get to bootloader. So after screwing around for about an hour trying to figure out what went wrong I decided to do the deed of returnign to stock. Oh well, nothing ventured nothing gained. lol

    Great job bud. Just make sure u mention that this is only stock ROM. Recovery is needed and if u need to take it to Sprint, they can tell you hacked it still. Just a warning and FYI for everyone

    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.

    Thanks for the feed back but you are incorrect. I think you are assuming... (sorry, not bashing you... just sayin...)

    This method returns you to 100% stock. Its the official image. It returns recovery, data, system, etc... EVERYTHING. Sprint will not be able to tell you have hacked anything. You are flashing the HTC RUU Image using my method.

    Based upon that I will not be changing the thread title. Thanks though.

    Tested and working!

    EDIT: You may want to sticky this or link to it in your REF thread. Im sure people will need this, like you said, if returning to Sprint :c)

    EDIT2: Also, after doing this you will need to re-apply the s-off fix and re install TWRP recovery assuming you choose to do that because you are back at square one.

    I'm sorry, I'm very confused about the S-ON steps. I did everything else, but I don't know how to get S-ON. Can someone explain step by step as if they were talking to a 5 year old? lol

    As of right now the S-ON command seems not to be working correctly. A solution is being researched.

    Do you need to send back to Sprint/HTC?

    Yes, I need to send it back to Sprint. Will it matter if it has S-OFF? Revolutionary isn't above it so I don't think they would know that I tried rooting it

    Im more than sure the sprint peeps wont even check for s-on or off. Now if you had to send it back to htc, then thats a problem. But short term if that because they were gonna unlock the bootloader soon anyways,

    Taking it into sprint repair I never had a problem with my rooted 4g. Only problem you may have is if the problem seems software related you better have a stock rom installed or they'll blame it on that.

    Well i need some help.. when revolutionary was running it asked me if i wanted recovery installed i did say yes. Then it started to download and it gave me an error. and then it said that my device was not supported..... now i am having all sorts of issues, for instance i can't even make a phone call, when ever i try, all i hear is a voice recording stating that my cell phone can not be authenticated....
    I will try this recovery, but since i am new to this i am a bit lost.. how do i get flag back???

    For the phone call part, just call customer service they will reset some stuff on their end. (don't mention root, just play dumb)

    Will this work if you have a stock phone already and you still want to reflash? I want to see if this will resolve my camera issues I've been having on my new (less than a week old) 3D. Thanks.
