    So I tried rooting my evo last week using simpleroot. After I rebooted, it was stuck on the splash screen that says htc evo 4g. I tried everything and it won't move from that screen. What do I do?

    Don't you love when someone asks for help, and then gives you ZERO information forcing you to pry it out one nugget at a time? Good luck!

    Do you have S-OFF?
    Liked was asked by PFCLand, do you have a custom recovery or is it stock? You could of lost your custom recovery when installing the RUU.
    What version of Android did you have when you used simpleroot?

    The more we know at first the easier it is to help.

    @PFCland - no I can't. Everytime I go Into recovery there's a screen that cOmes up with an android phone and a red caution sign next to it.

    @halizdad - please don't judge. I have no idea what info to give because I'm soooo new to this whole rooting stuff and everything.

    @smoke crawler - I don't know what s off is. I alsO have no idea If it was custom recovery or not. I didn't do anything to the phone except run simple root. I also don't know what version I had. It was the one before the newest update for Evo 4g. Sorry I don't have much info I really hope it didn't brick or anything...

    We'll walk you through it, no biggie. Please don't take any offense to some as they just like to speak out.

    ok... The screen with the phone and the red explanation mark is your stock recovery.

    To know if you have S-OFF you will need to look on your bootloader screen. The white screen with androids.This will be in the upper left hand corner on the first line. If it says S-ON then the root didn't work.

    Simpleroot works on Froyo (2.2). If you are on Gingerbread (2.3) then you have to use the revolutionary method as that is the only one at this time.

    Recovery didn't install when you loaded s-off. Easy fix. I'll let one of the others write a book in how to do it instead of me saying to just load it again.

    Because he used simpleroot we need to make sure he has s-off first instead of assuming.

    Nothing to assume. If he doesn't have s off he's going to have to reload it anyhow. Tell you what, have fun. Ive used simple root, rev, and several other methods. They're not magic.

    Tell you what, you haven't been helpful at all. The OP is new and has no clue what anything is. We need to make sure he knows and understands what is going on instead of talking to him like he does.

    No it won't go into recovery. When I choose recovery a screen comes up with an android phone and a red caution sign.

    I don't knOw what s off is

    I have no idea if I had custom recovery or not. All I did was try simple root. I didn't install any custom stuff. And I had the version before the most recent Evo 4g version.

    Disregard that last post. Sorry. Thank you guys for helping me so far. I really appreciate it. :-)

    Anyway, s off is not on because it says revolutionary on the top of the screen when I press volume down + power.

    So I can still try rooting without the phone being able to boot past the splash screen? I'll try the revolutionary then. I so remember trying revolutionary before and I thought it didn't go through.

    Tell you what; the OPs phone doesn't work. Let's get the phone to work, then you can explain all the way down to binary code and work your way up if you'd like. When your compadre advised the OP to do what I said to do last night, you didn't say ****. What's up with that?

    I wouldn't do it. If you root your phone without a backup and something goes wrong, you're screwed. It can be fixed after that, but you will really have problems if you really know as little about the process as you claim.

    Re-run Revolutionary all the way through, then restore your backup from Recovery.
