    Sorry, found it. Duh. needed to go into recovery. That was my error. I am an *****. Thanks.

    Thanks again for the help. I know have Superuser. The process straight forward and easy to follow - as long as no user-error issues. Looking forward to trying out new ROMS.

    Fast Boot = OFF.
    If you do soft brick, pull battery then replace. Hold volume down then press power. This will get you hboot then from there you can select recovery.
    Yes I know how to do this with fastboot off. Was just curious if there was a way with fastbook on if softbricked.
    Figured there wasnt , but would ask.
    I never messed with fastboot until I got this phone because it was on stock.

    Anyway, thanks.

    I believe it is error code 53, I may have the number wrong. Anyway the first rep you got is a *****, try again they can fix it. It happened to me and half a dozen people here. Good luck, keep us posted.

    Update: I looked it up it is error code 16. Tell the Sprint rep you are getting error code 16, they can fix it. Here is a link to a thread at XDA on the subject with phone numbers and what to do to fix the problem. Again give us an update and let us know if you get the problem resolved.

    Forgive the noob, but I am getting lost in this step "Open a command prompt and change the directory to where you have your "sdk\tools" folder installed."

    Help anyone?

    I had the error 16 for phone calls and txt messaging and a quick 5 minute phone call with Sprint fixed it. That one had me scared a bit.

    New to Android. Is there a good place to start understanding rooting--a Rooting Guide for Dummies or Newbs? How do you uninstall HTC Sync?

    What will you lose in the process of rooting? Contacts?

    Thanks.

    I have done the steps to get S-OFF (shows successful on boot) and made a nandroid backup, but I'm getting an error on flashing the "E:Error in /tmp/sideload/package.zip" error and it's not giving me superuser access...

    What's wrong and what do I do?

    EDIT! I put the "su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip" file in the /tmp/ folder and POOF it worked! I just tried Titanium backup and it allowed SU access!

    GUY GUYS ROCK SO HARD!! =)


    awesome!!!!! thanks it worked after this!

    This is the rooting for noobs thread. You SHOULDNT loose anything by simply rooting but your warranty will be voided. Thats about all...

    They made me do a factory reset and then they had me try to make a call and it directed me to another sprint rep who said she had to connect my phone back to the sprint towers

    Update: I looked it up it is error code 16. Tell the Sprint rep you are getting error code 16, they can fix it. Here is a link to a thread at XDA on the subject with phone numbers and what to do to fix the problem. Again give us an update and let us know if you get the problem resolved.

    Try copy and pasting the beta key.

    I am going to guess that this method does not work for the new update yet? Or has it been attempted?

    [NOTE]Hey all, this is a HOW TO for all you out there that are ready to take controll of your EVO 3D!

    First off.. I did NOT create any of this. This is just HOW TO.

    REQUIREMENTS : You MUST have the HTC drivers installed and HTC Sync UNINSTALLED for this to work.

    A BIG THANKS TO UNREVOKED AND ALPHA REV!
    [/NOTE]

    [INFO]
    HOW TO GET S-OFF

    1. Go to Revolutionary and select your PC type... This will start the download of the Revolutionary.zip

    2. Next is to apply for a Beta Key, this is NOT AN OPTION. You will need your HBOOT version number ie. 1.30 or 1.40, as well as your Serial Number. The serial Number is printed on your EVO under the battery.

    3. Boot up your 3D and make sure USB Debugging is ON. Now you can connect your 3D via USB. Make sure its in Charge Only Mode.

    4. Extract the downloaded ZIP and run the file "revolutionary"

    5. It will prompt you for your beta key.

    6. Once this is done it will go thru automated scripts and reboot your phone about 3-4 times before you finally are done.

    CONGRATS! YOU ARE NOW S-OFF!

    [/INFO]
    where do i find the drivers and i cant find were to unistal htc sync. and how to get hoot version

    Jon, you should update the thread to use the "legit" method of unlocking or offer it as an alternative. People are making the mistake of accepting the OTA and this is causing issues with revolutionary (yah, I know, big surprise! lol).

    See here for issue: http://forums.androidcentral.com/htc...tion-help.html

    Not that I am by an means an expert, but according to another thread here, HTCDev only unlocks the bootloader and doesn't go S-off, so according to others that is a worthless process. I have the key needed, but I am just going to wait till Revolutionary upgrades or someone comes up with a good method. Well worth it to be complete and not only half done.

    Nope, you are not an expert, lol.

    But the information you got in the "other" threads is dead wrong!

    I posted in that thread it was possible if done correctly. That was the whole point of HTC unlocking the boot loader. Everyone got all caught up in semantics (S-ON vs S-OFF) without understanding the actual processes.Only beleive .01% of what you read on the internet unless its coming from me, then only believe .02% lol

    Either way, good luck!
