In grave need of some help..
Ok so I was trying to have a look at cm6 using rom manager and was having the same problem as this dude. I followed the instructions the person just below him posted, using the file he posted. Now when I try to boot my evo I get to this screen:
SUPERSONIC EVT2-3 ENG S-OFF
Mar 30 2010, 11:24:04
<VOL UP> to previous item
<VOL DOWN> to next item
<POWER> to select item
I can get to recovery but when I try to do a nandroid restore I get this:
ClockworkMod Recovery v126.96.36.199
Checking MD5 sums
Erasing boot before restore
Restoring boot image
Error while flashing boot image!
All I really want to do is restore my phone to the way it was, I was just curious about cm6, not sure if I rly want to use it yet.

Oh, I was under the impression that you had already downloaded cm6. Well, if you can't get any backups to work, then you're gonna have to pull out your sd card and just plug it straight into your computer. If you don't have an adapter, you'll have to go buy one. Then just download whatever rom you want to flash and move it to the root of the sd card, then try flashing it.

I mean...if it's not letting you, it's not letting you. You can either do what I said, or hope someone with more experience answers you. There may be some ADB commands you could use to push a new rom to your sd card without having your phone fully booted into a rom, but I'm not familiar with any of that.
As far as getting your backup to work...I have no idea. I was just trying to help you get to a point where your phone would actually work As far as I know, if its not loading your backup, its not going to load it.
Inside the PC36IMG.zip file was hboot_0.76.2000.img and android-info.txt which read
I switched out .76.2000 with .79.0000 and the only difference is now it says HBOOT 0.79.0000 instead of HBOOT 0.76.2000 on the first screen when booting the phone. What exactly should I do? I'm a big "noob" when it comes to this kind of thing, I shouldn't have been messing around with this stuff at all.
Fixed! Switched .76 with .93 and all is well. I still have the issue of not being able to flash cm6 with rom manager though.

Be careful opening those zip files, some of them are signed and depending on your recovery won't install correctly once you open them up and put them back to flash.
I treat those zips as read only.

You can put this on the root of your SD card: xda-developers - View Single Post - ENG bootloader (0.76 needed for CM6) extended fastboot commands. (the attached file on the post, requires xda login) and if you go in to the boot loader it will scan and should fire it up, or you can just put it in a folder and flash through recovery. You can read the rest of the post starting here: (just thought it was kind of random to have a link to a pc36img file, and it's on the 2nd page) ENG bootloader (0.76 needed for CM6) extended fastboot commands. - xda-developers

Pojoman vs. HTC - The race of the "delayed" 2.2 software fix. - xda-developers (2.2), or you can install a recovery where you are right now and just flash any rom or even the released roms with root if you wanted to.
