First off, I want to thank you igotsanevo4g! You've put in a lot of time and effort into the EVO root/flash/hack forum.
I'm a noob as you can see. I've rooted my EVO via the unrEVOked method. I basically did this in the hopes of removing all the bullsh...I mean bloat that sprint put on my phone. So far so good on that. What I am really interested in is UNDERCLOCKING my phone. I've read up on setcpu and seems like a good idea/investment as I am not an extremely heavy user and my phone is on standby most of the time. I'm currently using aftermarket 1800 mAh batteries and average 18-26 hours on each charge (depends on usage). I'm a HUGE fan of the sense UI and the widgets so I'm not hot on CM7 or any other popular ROMs.
My question to you today sir, is if I utilize setcpu on my phone will it disrupt or hinder any of the widgets or the stock sense UI ROM?
I read somewhere that if you root with unrevoked 3, you had to have used unrevoked forever first, which didn't make any sense to me. I'm rooted on the Evo with U3 and everything's working fine. What's the difference between these 2 methods, and does one have an advantage over the other?
Another question I have is what is the pc36img file used for? I deleted it by accident and I'm hoping it doesn't cause any problems later if I need to unroot.
I've followed the sticky guide to doing just about everything... But Once I had my evo rooted I used rom manager for everything, and got complacent. So to the point. How Do I place the PC36IMG.zip to the root/top-level directory of your SD card? I'm stuck. I don't know what file to put it in. so i can get it to install and back to stock (for repairs.) all ready have s-on. using the latest version of clockwork.
I think your phone is stuck on an older version. I worked for sprint and ran into this problems with customers. you go to update the phone and it says it has the updated version, but in reality it does not. I recommend finding the 2.2 froyo ruu, just yahoo/google unrooting evo, and look for the one that deals with htc sync on the desktop, not the unrooting through sd card. you want to look for file "RUU_SuperSonic_S_Sprint_WWE_3.26.651.6_Radio_2.15.00.07.28_NV_1.40_release_140444_signed" this will reinstall initial 2.2 evo software then you can do the system updates to the newest version and then root your evo (PLEASE NOTE THIS RUU IS FOR EVO ONLY)
