    I had no idea that I would be having this many issues unrooting my phone.

    Here's my situation:

    1. I used Unrevoked Forever - which I later found out was a mistake because of the issues it causes.

    2. I followed the directions using the tool offered by Unrevoked to "unroot" the phone and it doesn't work. I can get to the s-on but the PC36IMG.zip they supply comes up as incorrect and as an "old version" so it won't recognize it.

    3. I have looked all over the place for the RUU, but I only get broken links. Then I am told on some of the threads that I must have a Windows PC to do the unroot, I have a Mac.

    4. Here's the information on my phone:
    - HTC EVO 4G (Sprint, obviously)
    - Android Version: 2.2
    - Baseband Version:
    - Software Number: 3.70.651.1

    I am at my wit's end on this and really do not want to have to have an "accident" to replace the dumb thing if I can get this thing back to factory settings. I've tried the factory reset as well, with no results, still is rooted.

    I would really appreciate any help that any of your could give. I have tried searching around but I just can't find anything that works for my phone. Please, I really need the help.

    (raising my right hand) I promise never to root again and never to ask how to do so in the future!!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, in advance!

    First off thank you folks for the help that you guys offered. It is very much appreciated.

    Since I was not able to use any of the information form the forums I continued my search elsewhere. I use a Mac computer and that caused some issues on getting my EVO unrooted. So I ended up using a Windows PC and using the following technique to get my EVO back to how I needed it.

    If you are having the issue of "older version" or "wrong version" when you try to flash the PC36IMG.zip to your phone, this will work for you. It did for me. I hope this helps someone out there.

    Here's the link to the tutorial:

    Thanks again for your help!
