    Default Stuck at HTC white screen

    Just installed my first custom rom onto my phone (Myn's Warm Two Point) Everything went smooth it said the rom loaded successfully. I went to reboot system now and now my phone has been stuck at the white htc EVO screen for the past 30 min. I even tried pulling the battery and starting my phone up but it does the same thing. What is wrong and what should I do?

    Welcome to AC!

    pull the battery, start the phone by holding down the volume down button and power button at the same time, only release your fingers when the white fastboot screen pops up, then select bootloader, then select recovery

    in recovery make sure to wipe data,cache,system,sd-ext, dalvik

    then reflash your rom and reboot.

    What he said...

    And congrats on your first mistake...

    Make it ur Mantra

    When in doubt Restore

    Always Wipe when Flashing a new Rom

    Never Forget to make a Back up once you have everything set up...

    In recovery, do wipe all user data, then make sure you get data, system, cache, sd-ext and dalvik - if this doesn't work when you do it again you may have gotten a bad download of the rom.

    How do you wipe the sd-ext. I use clockwork and dont see where to wipe the sd-ext.

    Does everyone use amon ra? Maybe this guy is using Clockwork.. if so only options he has are wipe data/factory resest and wipe cache (and dalvik through advanced).... so do those and reflash or restore a backup.

    Lol man I just answered your question as you typed it!

    I dont know why everyone here only gives instructions for Amon Ra.

    Sorry, I do use clockwork, you have to go erase user data or something like that on the first main screen, that will clear sd-ext.

    Try this. In clockwork, go to the flash alternate recovery and download. That should get you to RA.

    Gingerbread-evo-deck

    Install amon ra recovery through bootloader. Download through the link below



    Downloan and Place PC36IMG.zip on the root of your sd card. Boot the phone into the bootloader by powering the phone down, then press the power and the volume down buttons at the same time. Once the phone boots into the bootloader the phone will automatically recognize the zip file. It will ask if you would like to update, select yes and let it do it's thing and you will be good to go .

    Once in recovery wipe factory reset, wipe cashed and dalvik cash. Then flash new rom.

    Easy as that.

    Good luck

    Follow the same procedure as you did previously, but instead flash this file:

    Thanks Captain, you've been a tremendous help. I finally decided to take the easy way out. But I still want to do it manually. I purchased Rom Manager. Got cwm 5.8.0.1. Now I am looking at custom Roms, do you have a fav. ? I tried to get s off, with revolutionary, does not support my phone Hboot 2.18. Not because I need to do it, just want to know how and what works. Again thanks for all the help. Can't thank you enough..

    Lol that rom probably requires a partitioned SDcard. most of them do, some wont boot up unless you install it a particular way...just get a different rom, erase all data thru recovery menu flash rom, have fun
