    Where did you put the file? You should be putting it in the same folder that contains the fastboot.exe.

    What is the exact error message you're receiving?

    Is your device still connected in fastboot mode (i.e. says "FASTBOOT USB" on the screen)?

    I downloaded clean rom since this one seems to not be there but what part of it do I drag onto the SD card? There are a few folders and two documents. I don't know which one to add to the phone. I was able to unlock the bootloader easily.

    You don't unzip the ROM file. It must be in zip format for recovery to recognize it. Move the entire zip archive onto the SD card, and in recovery, you'll be able to select it, and it will flash to your device.

    Have you tried disconnecting, and then reconnecting the device? Sometimes the connection just times out.

    Is it on the root of your sd card? Be sure its on the root of it. Also maybe even trying amon ra. They also have the recovery img.

    My computer won't recognize my phone. I used Easytether so I know it is not the cable, any ideas? I can't beleive how much stuff you have to download on the HTC website to make this happen. Nothing seems to help.

    Okay, in step #5 on the HTC website, it says to use the SDK Manager to install the tools. When I attempt to do so, nothing gets installed, I keep getting the error message like

    "File not found: C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\temp\platform-tools_r10-windows.zip (Access is denied)"

    Does anyone know how I can get around this? I am getting extremely frustrated, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Never mind, I figured it out. I did a search on the Android developers website and found out that you right-click the SDK program and choose the run as administrator option to start it. I did not know about this, although I had checked to see that I was already logged in with administrative rights, apparently that's not enough for some programs, good to know!

    Your device has to be connected to the computer in fastboot mode (it will say "FASTBOOT USB" on the screen). Have you installed all of the necessary software & drivers already, and followed the procedure to put the device in fastboot mode?

    Hi,

    I just wanted to say ==THANK YOU== for posting this walk-thru. When I received a refurb phone from Sprint with the latest 2.3.5 OTA, I thought my root ship had sunk. You're a life-saver for getting me re-rooted and back in business.

    Well, got to step 11 and then tried to boot into recovery and got stuck on the white htc EVO 4G screen. If I pull th battery, the phone will start and if I go into the boot loader, the phone is unlocked. So, basically, I can't flash that super user zip file. Any help would be greatly appretiated.

    Did you get a message that the recovery flashed successfully, or did you get an error message? When you try to get to recovery through the bootloader, what happens?
