    To make a long story short my evo goes to fast boot everytime I turn it on. I have no nandroid backup and I wiped the phone and cache and all that. I have a micro SD card reader for the computer. I was wondering if I can get a new rom and put it on the SD card to flash it onto the evo but I have no idea how. Am I fu**ed?

    Hi and welcome. Sounds like you wiped your current ROM so your phone doesn't anything to boot into, flashing a new ROM should fix the problem.

    You can place the ROM on the root of your sdcard. In other words, don't place it in any folder. If you would like a nice suggestion for a wonderful EVO ROM, you should go with MikMik's v2.0 ROM - theMikMik.com • View topic - Download Links

    You'll have to create a login, of course, but it's worth it.

    ok. thanks again.. but now I think my problem got extremely worse, when I plug in the SD card to the laptop it says that there is absolutely nothing in it. now does this mean that I lost my root too? or should I just get a new phone because I'm too screwed?

    You shouldn't have lost root, you might have unknowingly erased your SD card. Go ahead and download a ROM, put it on your SD card and flash it. And of course don't hesitate to ask if yo have any more questions.

    I assume you are using a micro SD card adapter to connect your card to your PC? If so there should be a little slider switch on the side of the adapter, that's the write protection switch. All you have to do is use that switch to turn write protection off and you should be good to go.

    OK. that worked. Thank you for that big help.. i got the rom in the phone but there is another problem that i was not expecting. When i go into recovery mode.. where exactly do i go? i belive that i have to 'choose zip from SD card' under 'install zip from SD card' but when i go there, it says 'E:Can't mount /SD card'

    Sounds like you might need to format your SD card. Connect it to your PC, right click, choose "format", and be sure you format to fat32. Formatting will erase all data on the card, so you'll have to put the .zip file for the ROM you want to flash back on the card when you're done.
