    worked. Looks like I did not get the whole recovery file the first time. Booted into recovery fine and then rebooted into normal. Only thing is Market seems to be missing and was replaced with Google Play

    do you have the recovery.img file in the same folder on your computer with the fastboot.exe?

    That really isn't enough information. What final step? You'd probably be better served to ask your questions over in that thread as well - you'll get a better response.

    Hi. I am vexed and need some assistance. (Evo 4g)

    Right now, I have fastboot usb on.
    When I use the fastboot oem command I get this response:
    [ERR ] Command error !!!

    So its obviously not working.

    This phone was rooted before I updated it. When I did update it I had to install a file called PC36IMG in the root folder. Do I remove this file and put in the recovery img file?

    I have all the proper drivers and files on the pc.

    The steps have become kind of convoluted and its hard to follow. Please help me out, I appreciate it.

    What does it currently say on your bootloader screen? If you were previously rooted, do you still have a custom recovery installed? You may not need to do any of this if either of those things is the case.

    As I mentioned, I installed a filed called PC36IMG.zip which I was told to put in the root folder so I could update to 3.2.2.

    Here is why I say its not rooted anymore: (I could be wrong, but since I am no expert I am having issues).

    When I try to run the Wireless Tethering WIFI program I get a message:

    "Unable to start tethering, Is your device 'rooted?"

    From this I gathered that the device is no longer rooted because of the PC36IMG.zip and subsequent Sprint 3.2.2 update.

    Sorry for the long post, but I want to make sure you have all the information. If you have any more questions, let me know and thanks for the attention.

    Instead of selecting the FASTBOOT option, choose recovery. Once the device reboots, it should open your custom recovery. Then, all you need to do is install the superuser zip in recovery, and you'll be rooted. Your NAND is already unlocked with Revolutionary, so you don't actually need this guide.

    Thanks for the reply. I do appreciate it. When I boot the phone, it gives me this:

    HBOOT

    <VOL UP> to previous item
    <VOL DOWN> to next item
    <POWER> to select item

    FASTBOOT
    RECOVERY
    CLEAR STORAGE
    SIMLOCK
    HBOOT USB

    It doesn't allow me to move up and down, it automatically says SD checking and gives me:

    HBOOT

    Parsing...[SD ZIP]
    [1] RECOVERY
    Do you want to start update?
    <VOL UP> Yes
    <VOL DOWN> No


    This is the update I installed so I could go to 3.2.2 and it is what messed up my superuser access. So at this point I click no and it asks me if I want to reboot I say no.

    Now, it allows me to click on recovery, but the phone reboots, goes into a black screen which shows the phone with a ! in a triangle. So whatever I did to upgrade to 3.2.2 screwed up the root and I need to figure out how to reroot it.

    Hope I am being explicit enough.
    Thanks and hope you can help.
    (Is there some file I should be installing in my root folder and should I remove that PC36IMG file?

    So you still have the stock recovery installed (that's the screen with the phone & red triangle). You need to install a custom recovery so you can get rooted. For the EVO 4G, RA-supersonic-v2.3 is recommended.

    Attached below is drellisdee's Amon RA Style recovery, in PC36IMG format. Just replace the file currently on the root of your SD card, and in HBOOT, when you get prompted to install recovery, choose yes. After it completes, when asked to reboot, choose "No", and then select Recovery from the list. Hopefully, it'll then boot into your new custom recovery.

    If you get booted into recovery, you can then select and flash the Superuser zip file from here (if you don't already have it). That'll install the latest versions of the su binary and app, which will give you root access.

    P.S. I chose DRS (drellisdee's RA-Style) recovery because it has a few more features than RA-v2.3 (capacitive button navigation, compressed backups, selective restores), and it can restore CWM nandroids. However if it gives you any trouble, immediately run to RA-supersonic-v2.3. Avoid ClockWorkMod and TWRP, as they are highly unreliable on the EVO 4G.
