Red triangle of death
So I was up very late last night and was trying to root my brand new EVO 4G and I got to the part where I was loading the zip file from my sd card and I was getting a radio failed and then when I reboot it goes back to the same thing and tries to download the zip file again. My question is I have cleared the memory on the phone and the sd card and just want it back to normal again. I was thinking taking it to sprint to maybe get them to swap it out, do you think they will? Are they going to give me hassles or any problems? Im pretty sure the root didn't work so nothing on the phone should show that I was trying to screw with it. As of right now the phone just boots to the EVO 4G screen and that's it.

Double post from a mod!!! LOL jk.... If you decide to root, head over to the hacks sections and we can help you out if there's an issue. There's always a bunch of us there =D Glad you got everything working out though..
I'm kind of scared to do it now since this one didn't work, I tried the unrevoked3 and that didn't work. I really just want to get wireless tethering, that's all. Think ill stay for now and do a little research and reading first. Thanks again for the help guys.

EVO 4G Root --> Red Triangle of Death! ughhh!
So I am fairly new to rooting and all, but I have the same problem that baracing7374 had (link here: http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...gle-death.html)
I used the unRevoked method (link to the instructions here: )
..but..yeah, it failed on the radio update then just said the partition and update failed. Now I have the red triangle with the "!" through it. I can get into the boot screen (hold the down volume key and then power on), but no matter what I seem to do I can't fix it (I've even tried a "clear all" restore).
I'm phone-less until you smarty pants can help!
