    Oh... well slap me silly and call me susan. As you can see I DIDNT download it.. thats what I get for ASSuming. Thanks guys!
    Here we go again! lol

    Yes, this is to replace in its entirety the original image you have. You can unzip and flash it manually or you can place on SDcard and just reboot to hboot and it will flash it that way.

    Edit: Using the hboot method I easily flashed right over CWM recovery with no issues.

    Is ti fixed now? If so I wont bother. If its still broken I will look.


    EDIT: I looked.....

    Seems to me he is not S-OFF. Check to make sure his phone says revolutionary at the top in HBOOT.


    EDIT2: to test my theroy of S-ON you can have him try the manual way. If S is truly on then he will get a write permission error.

    I got the revolutionary to recognize my phone. I entered beta key ... all good. But then it says something about lemons then it says "waiting for fastboot" and stays there nothing happens. My phone shows that it rebooted to the screen where it says htc shooter and I can choose reboot , reboot boatloader etc but revolutionary doesnt do anything from there ... any advice?

    Do not use clockwork... Use the steps outlined in the OP and you will have a much more stable experience.

    You need to download http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30666591/RECOVERY.zip
    You are downloading this via your phone correct?
    After download mount your phone as a disk drive, move this file to your PC (do not leave it on your phone)
    Extract it...
    This will extract the "PG86IMG.zip" file.
    Take PG86IMG.zip and place at the root of your sdcard on your phone
    Now all you need to do is Turn your phone off and boot into HBOOT mode ( Vol Down+Power )
    From there the phone will recognize the zip as an update zip and ask you if you would like to flash it.
    Allow the flash of the recovery and then boot back up into your OS.

    Remember to delete this file off off your phone after you succeed.

    Next you need to perma-root.
    I am re-posting this here because if you are doing this all through your phones browser it will be easier than going back to the 1st page over and over again.

    PERMA-ROOT

    For root you need to flash this .zip

    Download here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/30666591/su-...fgh-signed.zip

    In order to achieve root..

    Download the su.zip and copy the zip file to the ROOT of your SDCARD.

    Boot into Recovery

    Choose "Install Zip"

    Then "Choose Zip To Flash"

    Then select the "su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip"

    Once it completes, reboot and you now have ROOT access!

    Downloaded the su.zip, put on root on of sd went to hboot recovery it started installing but stopped and read:

    E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip
    (status 0)

    I downloaded the su.zip from my phone moved it to my pc then put it back on the root of my sd card. Should I have downloaded it from a pc ? My pc has no internet and I have to buy the sprint hotspot to use usb tether. Is this even the problem ?

    Got it to work. I goggled the error message n someone else with that error was told the su.zip download he used was bad and have him a link to a different one , I used that one instead and worked perfect. Only difference was this other one said unsigned instead of signed. Is that bad ? Even got my wifi tether working. thanks for the help. What else can I do now ?

    Congratulations! The suspense was killing mw.
    Custom ROM time. If this is your first time I would start with something not to crazy such as http://forums.androidcentral.com/htc-evo-3d-rooting-roms-hacks/107464-rom-cleanrom-1-1-7-31-11-ad-block-native-wifi-usb-tether.html
    It is very stable.

    The drivers get installed on your PC, not the phone.
    Install these http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe on your PC
