    I have gone through the process and everything seemed to work well.

    HBOOT shows that I am UNLOCKED

    However, it also shows S-ON and when I go to uninstall bloatware I still can not. Which was the driving motivaton to dive into this experiment

    As a Noob I am guessing that I somehow need to switch S-ON to S-OFF. How do I do that?

    Both Revolutionary and Unrevoked3 are telling me my system is too new.

    UNLOCKED but don't know how to root

    Unlocking is only the first part of the process. You now have to root.
    That requires flashing a custom recovery, and then Superuser, so that you gain root access and can uninstall the bloat. Or, alternatively, you can flash a stock rooted or custom ROM with the boosts already removed.

    I am trying to root my Evo 4g and am working to get all the software necessary from the HTC Dev site. In the instruction it says to download HTC sync as part of the process but it appears HTC does not have it on their site anymore. Is it somewhere else? A quick google search only shows HTC sync available from a bunch of random pages with none of them appearing too secure. Any ideas or links to the software?

    Why do you want S-OFF?

    With the unlocked bootloader, you can flash custom ROMs and kernels with a custom recovery. Since you're already on the latest firmware, there really isn't much advantage to being S-OFF unless you really know what you're doing (i.e. you're a power user and aren't afraid of accidentally bricking your device).

    Please help - I have spent untold hours trying to root my Evo 4g so that I can install wireless tethering. I rooted my older device using unrevoked last year, but apparently the new model is much more complicated.
    I am trying to follow the process under "[Revised] Rooting Gingerbread 2.3.5 Dummies Guide" using the HTCdev method. In HTCdev, I have made it to step 8, typing in the "fastboot eom get_identifier_token" command, but the text that comes up is not the identifier token. It says:
    usage: fastboot [<option>]<command>
    commands:
    update <filename>... etc, on & on, listing several commands
    options:
    -w... etc, on & on, listing several options

    Any help to get me all the way through as quickly as possible would be so appreciated!

    I feel like the process is so nested: "All you have to do is X [just make sure you've already done Y [for which you should know you had to do G [but in order for that to work you really need Q..."!

    hey guys im experiencing a problem... I have my HTC Evo 4g unlocked via HTC dev but I am having trouble flashing a custom recovery. I put the file on my SD card and it says, "Update failed". Can anyone help me flash a custom recovery? I am using a mac.

    Default Re: Guide to rooting phone with HBOOT 2.18.0001

    Finally obtained the identifier token - for anyone experiencing the same problem, the procedures given for installing adb and fastboot didn't work for me (many times). I finally found this website , followed its procedures, and that was enough. Went back and proceeded through the rest of the HTCdev procedure like a breeze. Hope the remaining steps to achieve root are just as smooth...

    I'm stuck again! My bootloader is unlocked, and now as I to install the custom recovery, am stuck again. I have tried both methods listed in the step-by-step, as well as a method I found on YouTube, and they all fail. Method 1 stops me at "waiting for device" in the command prompt after I enter the command given; Method 2 fails because I installed Android Flasher (or whatever the exact name is) but my computer tells me I need to have another program installed in order to run it, and then it won't let me install that program. The YouTube method - which attempted to get me to load the recovery file directly onto the SD card and then fastboot (i don't know what beyond that) fails when I try to fastboot - I get a message on the white screen of my phone saying "Main version newer! Update failed". Please help me through this. Thanks so much!

    For the Fastboot method to work, the device has to be in fastboot mode. That means the white screen with the Androids on skate boards at the bottom. You have to press the power button with the "FASTBOOT" option highlighted, so that it changes from "HBOOT" to "FASTBOOT USB" when connected to your computer. Then you can issue the command to flash the recovery img file, and it should find the device. If that doesn't work, you can put the file from on the root of your SD card, and flash the way you tried in your third method. But my file should work .

    I'm stuck on step 13 - once CWM recovery boots on your phone use the volume up and down to pick Mounts and storage press power to select it

    My phone gets to the start screen that says hTC EVO 4G and just hangs there. What did I do wrong?

    I'm assuming step 12 worked ok, which should have flashed the recovery. Take out the battery and put it back in after a min or so. Hold volume down+Power on and it should kick you into Recovery. Hope this helps. Pick-up step 13 if you are in recovery.

    So, my EVO 4G booted up with just pushing the power button this morning, however, I didn't get the prompt for Mounts and storage in Step 13.

    So, I pulled the battery and did booted from the recovery and now my EVO is in a power cycle that doesn't seem to be ending any time soon.

    I have the battery pulled, what do I do now?

    This is what I get after step 11:

    sending 'recovery' (3120 KB)...
    OKAY [ 0.906s]
    writing 'recovery'...
    OKAY [ 1.406s]
    finished. total time: 2.313s

    Now, I'm in the screen that the menu items are Bootloader, Reboot, REboot Bootloader, Power Down. Which one do I go to? Or should I be in the menu level above this one?

    Thanks.

    You only need to download and flash the v3.11 Full Wipe version. The update is for people that were previously using v3.1.

    If I just choose to unlock the bootloader (via HTC dev,S-on) can I still flash a custom Rom or do I have to also get S-OFF? I want to root this thing but I want be able to tinker with custom roms, not quite ready for kernels or radios yet though. Help is appreciated

    Well, I am not getting much further on this. I see that I have the bootloader unlocked now and I can hook my phone up to my computer as a disk storage device. I'm not sure on how to:

    17. select go back

    18.select install zip from sd card

    19.choose zip from sd card

    Where do I do this step?

    I'm having the same issue others are:

    Follow all steps
    Download clockworkmod image
    Rename "recovery.img"
    Place image i same folder as fastboot files
    Navigate to folder in cmd
    Paste "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" in cmd
    Result is error: cannot load 'recovery.img'

    I'm 99% sure I'm doing everything correctly. Can I use some other image to test if it's the file or me?

    Well, something is really wrong with my phone now. I can't get it to boot up and of course Sprint is no help now that the bootloader was unlocked. I tried relocking it, but they knew it had been done so they just threw their hands up at me and said to call the insurance company since I have total protection.

    When I go to the fastboot and it does some little check, I can't tell what it's looking for, but I see that it says the file isn't there or cant' load or something. Says it for like 3 different files.

    I need some help here folks. This is my only phone!

    OK, here is what my screen looks like when I get to the boot menu:

    I get a success message when I flash the recovery.img file.

    OKAY [ 1.094s]
    writing 'recovery'...
    OKAY [ 1.719s]
    finished. total time: 2.812s

    However, when I go to recovery on my phone and try to boot the phone it goes into an endless restart loop. If I take out the battery and let it sit for a minute I can boot normally, but I don't get the following step:

    13.once CWM recovery boots on your phone use the volume up and down to pick Mounts and storage press power to select it

    What do I do?!

    Thanks.
