Rooting Evo 4g... WTF?!?!?!?!
Ok so I've tried two different methods of rooting my friends htc evo and both methods, it comes to the pc36img.zip file, i'm in the bootloader and It scans and says no image or wrong image, I've tried three different download locations for that file and same result... any ideas?

I used unrevoked with a mac and when I try to flash a rom it scans for that file in the boot loader menu and says no image found. I try to keep flashing and install the rom and it says aborted and has floyd with a triangle and installation mark and says update zip not found and I'm at a loss of what to do

I have rom manager and it has the clock work mod and I read somewhere that the 3.x versions don't work so I flashed it to 22.214.171.124 or whatever that option is but I'll try it using just rom manager either when I get off 2nite or 2morrow morNing thanks for all the help guys!

ok so i'm in the process of flashing or loading the rom that i want (myn's warm z 2.2) and its been stuck on the animation for it going on an hour and i've read that it does take a while when it's your 1st time flashing a rom but about how much longer do you guys think i have before i should try again?

Just wanted you guys to know I got my friends phone rooted just fine finally.. i think it had something to do with the goldcard.. i initally formatted it in FAT instead of FAT32 and then i redid the goldcard and it noticed the pc36img then..

I had the exact same issue, here's what I found and Did and was able to boot into the clockworkMOD recovery...
Ok easy enough, here's a PC36IMG.zip file containing only clockworkmod 126.96.36.199 - this will let you re-flash your last good nandroid. (download it here: PC36IMG.zip)
The download location for that ZIP is here :
Copy this to the sdcard of your phone (you may have to mount it in something else if you can't access to it from your phone).
Power off your phone, with the sdcard in place and this file on it, press the vol down and power button until the bootloader loads, it will scan the card and ask if you want to update, hit yes to apply it, after it's done hit no to reboot, then select recovery from the menu, it will hopefully bring you in to clockworkmod recovery where you can go to backup and restore, pick your last nandroid to restore and be on your way.

Re: Rooting Evo 4g... WTF?!?!?!?!
someone please hellppp! First of all I am a nooob! Ok so I have an evo 3d and I used the HTC Method off trying to root it. I followed all the directions to the tutorial and everything went smooth until i had to enter fast boot flash recovery cwm-188.8.131.52-shooter.img. It kept saying sending message or sumthin like that. Finally I got it to go to the revolutionary menu and continued to follow the directions to do something with the .zip file. Then it re booted. SO as of now my phone is unlocked with a s-on. Then i downloaded the ROM manager and downloaded the clockwork mod recovery. I ran the clockwork mod then I backed up my current ROM. Only problem is that there are no files on my sd card of my backed up ROM. OK now also it will not boot into recovery. using quickboot or from the bootloader menu. also in bootloader menu it does a little scan and it always says no image found! please can someone help this is driving me nuts!!!!
