    my phone just decided to crash out on me...the screen stays black but when i press the button on top of the phone the buttons on the bottom light up both the screen stays black...

    i pulled the battery and put it back in and it stays on the white screen and never does anything...I've gone in to nandroids and tried to restore an old point and it freezes...i've tried wiping the phone and it freezes...

    I know my memory card is pretty full so i didn't know if that had anything to do with it so i tried to delete some stuff off of it so i went to the partition sd card and mounted the drive and when i try and delete something off the card my computer freezes then my phone freezes...i mean i just dunno what to do here

    is it possible for you to remove the SD card using an adaptor mount it directly to the computer. Save all the data on it. then reformat the card on the phone. i dont know if that would help the problem but if you suspect it has to do with the card this would eliminate this as an issue.

    so I got to hboot and I just hit the update that was on there...that got home phone to some what boot up but it changed from VaelPak to i guess a stock Sense Rom...but even with that it wouldn't fully boot up and i can't access the SD card from the phone...i plug the phone up to my computer via the usb cord and i am able to get the root of the SD card but it won't let me add/remove/move any files to/from the card...rather upset about all this...

    so i open a cmd prompt and i type "adb reboot recovery" and i was able to get to here


    then I used the recovery-windows.bat file from when i rooted the phone before...i went in and was able to wipe the phone no problem...so then i figure I'll load a ROM from my phone so i select the VaelPak 2.3 that's on there since that seems to be the only ROM i have on my SD card right now i can access...for the record i can't access any of my back ups to restore on it...and my phone freezes right here

    "Writing BOOT:..."

    won't go anywhere...it's been sitting here for like 20 mins now...

    You don't put an ruu on your sd card, its a program ran from your pc. Look on the unrooting sticky. Run the 2.1 ruu, root using simple root, hit extras in simple root and it gives you the option to flash clockwork or ra. Flash one after you do the rooting and your phone is still hooked up.

    May seem crazy, but im just trying to eliminate possible causes.

    correction...SD card problem fixed...but the usb port still isn't working unless i'm in fastboot...

    while in fastboot i opened a command prompt in the SDK folder and typed

    fastboot oem boot

    In the log i had the line that said "INFOCID is SPCS_001" so that should have worked...but it didn't...urgh!!!

    Okay, so you can boot into fastboot. Great, now run the ruu and return your evo if we cant fix it lol

    Although accepting the latest ota once you're on 2.1 might fix your usb issue. Its worked for others.

    ok i'm stock 2.2 now...let's see if i can reroot and go back to 2.1

    EDIT: it's obviously still messed up because after it loads it'll stay up for a couple mins then reboot itself and the driver still won't recognize
