    Hey guys, I had rooted my Evo3d a while ago using the revolutionary tool. Hboot 1.4, S-OFF and all was well. I have the stock ROM and nothing done other than rooting it. Everything was fine for approximately a month...yesterday a member showed me how to remove the software update icon by un-checking the box in menu>settings>updates>...etc. I did NOT update anything though. Now, this morning I wake up after the phone being on the charger and the capacitive buttons are lit, but the phone screen is blank. I try powering/waking it up and NOTHING. I pull the battery a few times and restarted it a few times and again, NOTHING. I tried doing the power+lower volume key and I get into the root revolutionary menu but from there I am lost. Can anybody help? I'd like to save my settings and my information on the phone. Thanks all!

    At least your's isn't bricked, mine actually wouldn't power up when that happened to me and I had to get a new one.

    Have you tried using the RUU file and just restoring everything back to factory default through the recovery tool in fastboot?

    if that doesn't work I would try to maybe flash another rom on there just too see if it would work or not.

    if you don't have recovery installed on fastboot just download the cwm for shooter and then flash it on manually from fastboot to try out the other roms

    when hitting power+low volume key>recover, it shows up as revolutionary cwm (clockworkmod??).

    ps im an iphone convert, i know nothing about kernals/roms/etc. I followed a how-to on how to root using revolutionary, my andorid prowess ends there, lol.

    100% sure that you unchecking the update box had nothing to do with your phone not turning on.


    Download twrp from http://www.techerrata.com/dl.php?pat...oter-1.0.3.zip

    1. Download flashable zip from the OP and rename it "PG86IMG.zip" (without the quotes)
    2. Place in the root of the sdcard
    3. Power off phone (make sure you turn off hot boot or pull the battery when it's off)
    4. Power on the phone holding power and volume down
    5. Follow the prompts to flash it
    6. Delete .zip (PG86IMG.zip) after booting
    7. Enjoy

    Download a custom ROM or Stock Zip
    CleanROM 2.4 http://forums.androidcentral.com/htc...in-better.html

    Stock 2.3.4 zip (latest stock ROM from Sprint) [ROM] Stock Rooted 2.08.651.2 - With HTC OTA (8/26/2011)

    Place the Zip on the root of your sd card.

    After flashing the twrp recovery
    Boot into recovery
    go to wipe menu (use volume keys to navigate)
    press power button to select
    wipe
    Cache
    Dalvik
    Everything (data reset) ----since you want to try to save all of your info, and are coming from the stock ROM you MAY, I repeat MAY be able to get away with skipping this step if you are just flashing the stock ROM.

    Go back to main menu
    Select install zip
    Select choose zip to flash
    navigate to the zip you placed on your card
    press power to confirm

    If you skip the factory reset step. But it may not work. Maybe I am missing something simple to do to help you out. Maybe one of the forum experts will chime in with an easier solution. What I outlined above could be described as a last resort to get you set up. Hopefully someone smarter than me has a simpler approach.

    You said you can get into recovery?
    What happens if you select reboot to system from cwm recovery?

    I dont know much about this stuff so I didn't want to try anything in fear of losing my stuff. If I were to follow your directions, would there be any harm in loss of data?

    Shouldn't be from the last post (reboot to system).
    Disclaimer : Your phone is borked somehow, you may have already lost data and just don't know it yet.
    There are no guarantees when messing with rooted hardware.

    Here's a question, on the SD card, what files after running revolutionary to root it, should remain? i know i was deleting a bunch of things clearing up some garbage files (pics/movies/etc) and mightve accidentally deleted something important related to root?

    Shouldn't be any, you can switch SD cards at anytime.

    You might have already lost your data, flash the stock rom from a couple of posts ago. Place stock rom in root of your SD card, boot into recovery, Wipe Dalvik and ( normally I would say wipe data/factory reset but you are trying to save your data) , install zip.
    Reboot system now.

    thanks friend am downloading the stock rom you linked me to.

    I'm donwloading the ROM to my PC and am going to put it onto the main folder of a spare SD card I have laying around. Once its up and running ill then pop in my 32gig that has all my music/movies/pictures (lessening any risk of me losing SD data). Also I did have titanium backup and sms + for saving texts, hopefully i'll be able to retrieve all the programs i installed onto the "phone" .

    titanium saves the info to your SD card, once up and running download titanium from the market with your original sd card (the one you made the back ups on) in the phone and they should restore. Only restore application data, do not restore any system data!
