    No problem, do you have SDK w/fastboot installed on your PC?

    edit: or a RUU exe? and if so, which one?

    thnaks a million for the reply- i felt like i was alone in the desert and nobody within miles to ask for help.. lol anyhow android sdk is installed on my pc ( not sure what u mean if fastboot is installed exactly)- just to update u what i just did in the last 5 minutes was this- i downloaded
    RUU_Supersonic_1.32.651.1_Radio_1.39.00.04.26_release_171253.exe
    i then poot the phone in fastboot menu- i started the ruu and it looked like it was going to flash- then when it got to the point where it said rebooting to bootloader it just turned the phone off and never booted into bootloader- so i took the battery out and replaced it and held volume down and power to manually do it - it went to a black screen with a huge HTC in the middle- i replugged it in and the RUU actually recoginzed and completed the entire flash- it said COMPLETE ENJOY YOUR PHONE- my phone never rebooted autpomatically though after it just turned off- so when i restarted it myself it was the same thing- frozen at the htc evo 4g page- when i went into bootloader i still have no recovery it freezes there as well but the RUU definitely chenged my rom version so im not sure what didnt go right- i apologize but i am trying to provide the best description i can for u thanks much!!

    Alright, you can try running the RUU again?

    what version hboot do you have now?

    with the phone plugged in and on fastboot, if you go to your sdk/tools folder and type in:

    fastboot devices
    do you see it listed?

    You can re try it, or you can flash a recovery right from fastboot.

    The code would be (if the recovery is called "recovery.img")

    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    does hboot show s-on or s-off?

    I've never seen that error on a RUU...

    I think you should try to flash a custom recovery through fastboot so you can maintain s-off and just pickup where you left off.

    I'm trying to find the right armon ra file for you now, but you may have one from the first time you rooted..

    edit: and no problem!

    He had did the same thing I did i used the same ruu and it went all the way thru and it said for me tho all the way at the end was error file missing or something and I couldn't get anything to go or change but at least he can get to the 4g sign lol I only got a black HTC sign with the caution triangles and when I pulled the usb out it turns white and brings up my hboot screen and or bootloader white screen where you normally would see the 3 Androids with skateboards I got 2 triangles with this in the middle
    ! Instead of android on skateboard but hope you get out of the death grip I was in haha

    if you pull the battery, then put it back in, hold down vol down and power at the same time until fastboot loads up and you'll be back in fastboot.

    I'm pretty sure he won't be able to get there cuz ones I got the black screen when just trying to turn the phone on normally it just shoots me to the black HTC warning sign and when holding the volume buttons and power it still brought me to the same black screen the only time we get to the rambling white fastboot screen is when you yank the usb out and in Orange it says ruu and normally it would say bootloader or recovery those are missing you might want to see if he will take the risk or if you found a better way yesterday on typing in fastboot devices the giving him the right recovery image and.push it thru fastboot like you where doing that might help him cuz he is in the same exact spot I was in its to the t and all to familiar

    nope, lately rooting seems to be hell with the new updates and all.

    ok, do you have a recovery.img file from when you rooted the first time?

    ok no problem, grab this zip; Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

    unzip it, take the recovery.img file and place it in to your sdk tools folder

    then in cmd type:

    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    yeah why not, here's my plan, you're on hboot 2.02 with s-off but your phone has crashed in fastboot, for some reason it's not letting you right recovery, so I first want to try first flashing an older more fun less problematic hboot.

    if you can grab this file: xda-developers (you'll have to sign in at xda) - then extract it and put it in your tools folder and type

    fastboot flash hboot hboot(filename).img
    you can rename the hboot file in the zip to like "hboot.img" and then put it in that folder to make it easier - i'm about 30/70 that this will work..

    next step is to get the latest RUU as it's probably allowed to write to your partitions and then bring the phone down to root w/s-off from there, but i'd hate to do that...

    the file should be: EVO_HBoot_0.76.2000

    it should be hboot_0.76.2000.img that you rename to hboot.img

    just to confrim, if that is what you have then your syntax is fastboot is right.
