    thanks
    I've done it several times successfully and never had a problem. I've also walked several other people through it. The method itself works fine, and the instability on the phone is really irrelevant, since most of the work is done on the PC via adb.

    You either have to use HTCDev.com to unlock your bootloader and then install a custom recovery & superuser for root, or you use TacoRoot to temp root, downgrade the misc partition on your device, and then flash an older stock Gingerbread ROM via RUU or PC36IMG so you can use this method.

    Yes, you can.

    After unrooting, you just have to flash the latest ROM. That'll get the watermark back on your bootloader. Though I'm sure you could return it with an older version and it would still be accepted.

    Do you mean this whole procedure is obsolete, or just one step?

    I try to open revolutionary and the response I get in the terminal window is: 'cannot execute binary file'. No issues with the beta key b/c it never asked for it, just 'cannot execute' and done.

    ???

    Are you sure a recovery was installed? Were you able to root successfully? Are you sure this is even the correct guide for you?

    i do not think root was installed correctly. when i boot up to hboot it shows S-OFF. I then tried to reboot into recovery so i could turn usb toggle on and copy su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip the phone just sits on the white HTC EVO 4G screen and just hangs. i also installed the clock work mod when it asked me to as well. is there any chance that clock work is bad and i should try and install armonia recovery instead? i need to boot into recovery so i can run copy su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip correct?


    Phone Info
    htc evo 4g

    You are correct. You should definitely install an Amon_RA-based recovery. For the EVO, ClockworkMod is unreliable, and that could be the source of your current issue.

    After installing a recovery, you can flash superuser to gain root.

    Then you use HTCDev to unlock the bootloader.

    Folks,
    I'm curious if anyone else has this issue. The Revolutionary beta key generator does not list HBoot 2.18.001 as an option and that is the version I have on my EVO 4G. Will the Root process still work by using 2.16.0001?

    There's also this method, which appears to be the only one that doesn't factory reset your device (but I haven't personally tried it):

    You need to reboot your Evo - but keep Power Button and Volume Down button pressed (very important), then you will see the boot info etc on a texty looking screen. you can't find it frmo UI anywhere.

    Hope this helps

    I just got Evo 4G as second device in the house, and will be trying the HTCDev method, just reading through the threads it sounds like that is the only way (straight fwd) way) that it's working with GB and 2.18.

    Revolutionary definitely oes not work with 2.18 unless you downgrade Hboot

    Revolutionsry wants to know which Hboot I have, but I dont even know what that means. How do I find out?

    Edit: figured it out, but I have 2.18.0001. Thats not one of the choices from Revolutionary...
