    Ok so I finally woke up and got into recovery mode. Having experience rooting my old EVO 4g I knew what to do from then. But looking for the senless ROM i couldn't find it in the folder.
    Q: was I suppose to extract the senseless ROM folder into the phone or just copy it their.
    Q: is there a specific name that its under.
    Side note: I installed superuser and titanium backup but still says no Su privilege. Is it cuz its rooted HTC method?
    The Rom install will install SU
    No you do not extract the Rom
    If you placed your Rom on the root of your SD card as per the instructions, it should be on the root of your card. It would then be the exact same name that it is on your PC where you downloaded it to. Should be called Senselessrom...

    On a side note... the directions tell you to download CleanRom. If you decided to get Senseless instead, that is no problem, but if you did grab CleanRom then you are looking for the CleanRom file.

    Yes, the Rom Updater in the phone will download it to your senseless folder on your phone. It will say something like "unable to flash from phone, save and flash manually?)

    Then all you do is connect your phone to your PC, run the CMD instructions again to boot phone into recovery, and direct your phone to the rom update (Senseless folder). No need to clear cash or anything like that. Updates are WAY easier!

    Update instructions are in the first thread at the end of the instructions.

    hey tommy, bro i just wanted to say that you and everybody else on this forum is the truth. i rooted, flashed a new rom and fell in love with my evo again. screw sense and their memory hogging . i think my last and final question is where can i find a decent kernel? i did some searching and i saw Zedeomax on youtube using the synergy kernel. but a lot of responses said that it broke 4g and wifi.
    what do you recomend?
    im on hboot 1.50

    thanks again man.

    I'm glad everything is working out for you. The SenselessROM and CleanROM are superb ROMs. I used the kernel that was included with my installation of CleanROM. It does not break 4G or WiFi.

    Same here... the Rom installed the kernel that the Rom developer thought was the best. I am inclined to trust his judgement so I have not messed around with it. I believe the Rom may be developed with this kernel in mind so another kernel may not function as well with this Rom? I'm just guessing though.

    quick question, ive done all this and succesfully flashed ROMS before, but its been so long since the original unlock that i forget. do i need to do steps 6 and 7 again to flash a new rom (example clean rom 2.8 to 2.9.5)...

    6. Open the command prompt on your PC (press START and type cmd) In the command window, type: \cd\rootevo3dnew to get to C:\rootevo3dnew).

    7. Type the following command in the command prompt: fastboot boot cwm-4.0.1.4-shooter.img and press enter.

    cause i can just boot into TWRP without being connected to my computer and choose to install .zip from there? i havent done it yet like that but i dont know why it wouldnt work. maybe i should just try and see what happens.

    Booting directly into twrp won't flash the kernel.

    well i was bored this morning and decided to try it, just booted my phone into TWRP from the main screen, wiped everything, and flashed 2.9.5 and no problems yet.

    but your saying flashing a kernel, which is something different from a ROM, cannot be done like how i just did it? ive never flashed a kernel before so i dont know

    The kernel is included in the rom. If the rom you are flashing has the same kernel as your previous rom there "should" be no issues.

    this is rooting this is just unlocking the phone I can't wait until someone comes up with the s-off so i can root my phone and get total access to it. such as speeds of cpu and many others.

    im a newb but forgive me if im wrong..you can do all that. S-off/on is just an arbitrary label. All it means is you have to jump through an extra hoop since your 1.5.


    wait, were you being sarcastic?

    Yes... agree with above post. You can do anything including cpu speed with this method.

    Can anyone tell me if I just do the HTC unlock and do not flash a new ROM right away. Will it enable me to use my hotspot. Or do I have to flash a new ROM first?

    What did not work? Are you talking about flashing the ROM? Because THAT obviously works as you can see by others.

    You must have missed something somewhere, if you tell your problems, we can help you find the mistake.
