Default Complete Newbie's Guide to rooting and flashing Evo 3D ROMs/Kernels using fastboot

Hide tags are now fixed! You should now see the guide as it was written!

This is a guide to walk users through installing the Android SDK and using fastboot and ADB. While meant for people on HBOOT 1.5 and above who have no other choice other than to deal with fastboot at some point, these commands can be used by previous HBOOT users to help recover their device in case of catastrophic failure. This is not a programming guide. For a programming guide, please go to the Developer 101 forum.

So let's get started!

This is for the Sprint version of the HTC Evo 3D (CDMA). For the GSM version, please see the second post.

Also note: This WILL wipe out your settings, apps, et cetera. Please make any/all necessary backups before proceeding.

Step 1) How to install and configure the Android SDK

Step 2) Picking the recovery, ROM, and kernel you want to use.

Step 3) Opening the command prompt and getting ready for entering fastboot.

Step 4) Unlocking with HTC Dev

Step 5) Let's install then boot into recovery!

Step 6) Before you do anything, it's time to make a backup.

Step 7) Flashing the ROM

Quick Guide) Flashing another ROM

(Optional) Installing 4EXT - Highly Recommended!

(Optional) Getting S-OFF - Highly Recommended!


Some of the commands in this guide were found here: [GUIDE] HTC Unlock Hboot 1.50 + TWRP Recovery + Root + Flash!! [9.11.11] - xda-developers and I just sought to make a complete newbies guide version of it.
