    It shouldn't be laggy.. maybe a wipe and reflash?

    use Google navigation instead?

    Its an animated flip clock, that's why it doesn't open the clock. And I've never heard of or had reception issues.

    I'm following http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...2-windows.html
    and I get to the part of flashing toasts thing...

    I get the out of memory error.. alot of them..

    So i restart as he said... I try it again starying at the *

    I get this..


    He says if you get and "out of memory error" to reboot and then he says..
    If you get an "Out of memory error" with a huge list of weird lines, here's how to fix it.

    Reboot your phone normally.
    Open] a command prompt and go backwards in this guide until you see the big red * and start from there.

    does he mean to restart... then do all the commands backwards? go from bottom to top?

    thanks.

    Step 8: Wait for the adb shell to go away, and it will dump you into your windows command prompt again (no shell) should look something like this:

    C:\android-sdk-windows\tools>

    If it dumps you to a $ instead, repeat those 2 commands again and try toggling airplane mode.
    Long time lurker, decided to try rooting for S's and giggles.

    Anyway, I get to this step and get stuck. It seems like my phone disconnects and when I adb devices it doesnt see it any more. Any ideas?

    Also - I saw this exact same how to guide on another site with the label OUTDATED. Am I doing something I shouldnt here?

    Goo. I guess I'll wait, or may never root. Seems too risky/complex for me.

    It scared me too and I wrote it, if you're dying to root it looks like it's going to be Unrevoked-forever, there's a method for doing so with 2.10 hboots here: [ROOT][GUIDE] HBoot 2.02/2.10 SOFF -Yea, Yes Im On Top Edition - Upd. 12.19.10 - xda-developers

    I'm not done, not by a long shot but I need a break for a few hours!

    I have had my EVO for about 4 months and desire to root it and install a new ROM. It is running Android 2.2 and has the latest Sprint OTA that was released a earlier this month.

    Before i do i want to verify something.

    I originally started looking at this page: http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...-recovery.html

    I noticed at the end of that thread it says the following
    These instructions are depreciated. Currently there is no root method for 2.2 on the Evo, and we're working on a new sticky post to discuss the issue.

    I'm closing this, but leaving it for posterity.
    I also noticed that this thread says the following:

    You now are on the stock 2.1 build of Android! (Read: nice friendly rootable build of android)

    Step 12: Now that you are back to 2.1, you Should be able to use any 2.1 w/ OTA root method you wish. I have listed those methods bellow.
    Correct me if i am wrong, but because my phone is running version 2.2, i MUST follow the instructions at the beginning of this thread FIRST so that my phone is running version 2.1.

    Then, once my phone is running version 2.1, i can use the instructions in the original thread i linked to http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...-recovery.html to install the ROM i desire.

    PS, the ROM i desire to use is found here: Download: Fresh Evo 3.5.0.1 (New OTA)

    THANKS!




    EDIT:

    Ok... i have been reading more, and found the following:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=838448


    it looks like this should work to allow me to root my phone. Then once my phone is rooted, i should be able to install the rom i desire linked above.

    It would be great f someone can verify this for me

    Verified. Goodluck, dont be shy if you have problems

    Im guessing you have the 2.02 hboot or the 2.10, please check before diving in though.

    Z4 uses the rageagainstthecage exploit also, so if you can do that...

    Have you tried adb kill-server

    then adb start-server
