    Default Re: Simplified How-To Root your EVO (No ROM directions)

    Use the fastboot flash recovery recovery.img command. When you type fastboot boot it looks like it's a different command trying to do something with the boot.img
    There is a boot recovery command and it's fastboot boot recovery recovery.img
    You can see on the command prompt where you type fastboot boot recovery.img it is attempting to do something with your boot.img and failing. Probably because the name recovery.img is incorrect for your boot img

    Try downloading your recovery.img again. It looks like your download might have been corrupted. See how it says writing recovery.img 0 kb? Complete. My recovery is almost 7mb...

    Save yourself the trouble and listen to the people who actually know what they're talking about.

    YOU CANNOT UNLOCK AND ROOT THIS PHONE WITHOUT A COMPUTER. PERIOD.

    You *HAVE* to get the device token. That requires command prompt. That's just ONE of many steps that you'd need the computer for.

    Well I can get it. Its in the root pages for this phone. I've rooted HTC phones before and they weren't hard to do. I just need to wait till my friend gets back from his truck driving job and then ill use his computer.

    I've got a different problem. Trying to root at this point. I get a Status 2 error.

    Updating partition details...
    Installing '/sdcard/Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip
    Checking for MD5 file...
    E:Error in /sdcard/Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip
    (Status 2)
    Error flasing zip /sdcard/Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip
    Updating partition details

    I have a htc evo 3d Unlocked bootloader. HBOOT-1.53.0007. I've followed the instructions up to this point and now am stuck. Any suggestions please?

    You either haven't gotten a custom recovery installed or the zip file is corrupt and you need to redownload it.

    I ended up finding a different zip to use and it worked. Thanks a lot.
