    Default Re: My HTC Evo 4G is stuck on a reboot infinite loop

    hi there...i'm very new here. i've had my phone, the HTC EVO V for Virgin Mobile, for 6 days. day one...heaven. day two...meh, not bad. day 3-today...hell on earth. last night my phone turned off and on so many times, my husband almost threw it out the living room window. i am a complete android rookie, and not terribly tech savvy in general. please tell me what i can do to fix this phone, if anything. i love it so, and do NOT want to be forced back to the iOS.

    p.s., like i said, i'm a total rookie. any explanation will have to be in very simple terms

    p.p.s, i tried the volume down/power button thing. doesn't work on my phone. is there another hard reset option?

    thanks everyone

    You shut off your phone fully when you boot into the recovery. Then you hold down Volume Down and then Power and keep holding it down until you see a screen which is referred to as the HBOOT Screen. From there, you'll see at the top ***LOCKED OOW***, followed by some information about your phone and then a menu that you can move through using the volume buttons. At the bottom of the screen, you should see 3 Android figures, and if I remember correctly, they are on skateboards. From there, select the RECOVERY option after it finishes the search for the .zip file for the system. Disregard that for now. Oh my, I'm getting ahead of myself. What exactly is wrong with your device? And the EVO V?

    thank you so much for the advice. i tried the volume down/power button...nothing happened. i did shut the phone off, then as i was turning it back on, i held down the volume down button for what seemed like forever, and it went into safe mode. i also uninstalled an app that i think was sketch. i've been out of safe mode for 24 hrs, and no issues at all. i have the evo v for virgin mobile. absolutely awesome phone, now that it's working correctly haha. i was an iphone user for a very long time. no way i'll ever go back. love love love this phone. and what an informative forum!! you guys and gals are all so savvy!

    Default Re: My HTC Evo 4G is stuck on a reboot infinite loop

    hello i have the old htc evo 4g for sprint everything was working semi-alright then my phone died and when i turn it back on it keeps looping the 4g screen and the start up sound. I get to the hboot start up screen by holding the power and volume down button then go down to recovery and let it run its course where it has the green circular arrows above the phone then turns to a red triangle with an exclamation mark. According to the other comment the one lady said just take out the battery and put it back in and start it up normally nd it still didnt work sooooo now what?

    At the Red Triangle, hold down Volume Up + Power in that order and from the stock recovery, using the volume buttons to navigate, just select "Clear Cache" and this should fix your problem. NOTE: Will factory reset phone (pretty much), you have been WARNED!

    Does not wipe SD card data. I can't remember what exactly it did, because I did this to my Vivid a long time ago and it fixed it but it pretty much Factory Reset it.

    I'm confused on what you are asking, what seems to be wrong? You sound like you're describing the recovery...

    Pull out the battery. Try it again. I sometimes got that message when my Vivid had the stock recovery, but somehow, it still open...so, best thing to do is try again.
