Thank you for responding. I am not hiding file extensions, and the file is named recovery.img. I followed the steps outlined in your RUU flash guide here (http://androidforums.com/evo-3d-all-things-root/539091-hboot-1-5-firmware-upgrade-ruu-flash-unbricking-guide.html), but I am still getting the same error message (BootMagic check fail). The phone is not bricked or anything, I can still boot into stock Android. Not sure how to get around this problem. Thanks!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! I am a ROM n00b and was struggling with all the conflicting information scattered around the 'Net about how to flash the Evo 3D. This step-by-step made it SO easy, I had it done in under an hour. THANK YOU!

I followed your guide except that I did not install the custom ROM. So do I have to install the custom ROM in order to be rooted? I just want to root and stay in stock. I tried installing superuser from the market but it says that I don;t have root access.

The ROM included in this walkthrough is the stock Sprint ROM with Superuser built in. Flashing the stock ROM + SU built in usually causes fewer problems then just flashing the SU patch over the stock ROM.

Both result in a rooted stock ROM, but the full stock ROM will install with fewer problems. However, if you just want to flash the SU patch, it here:

Sorry, I missed your question.

4EXT removes the need for fastboot to flash ROMs/kernels, but if you want to update firmware, you'll still have to use a RUU or unroot and take an OTA.

Thank you for the great guide and the reply. I had actually gone ahead and installed the ROM you suggested in your guide. You can probably mention that the ROM is stock and rooted, but other than that, your guide is very easy to follow and straight forward. I am going to flash an ICS ROM right now. I hope that it's okay to use the recovery in your guide to flash the MeanROM (I'm S-OFF using the pin trick). Thanks again.

You'll be fine to use either TWRP 1.1.1 or 4EXT

Try downloading a fresh copy of TWRP 1.1.1. You may have a corrupted download. If not, I'm not completely sure, I've never seen that error before.

No, like updated basebands/radios and things of that nature. It will only be a big deal once the official ICS comes, as I'm sure there will be updated firmware for it.

That was it. Pretty stupid, but I think I right-clicked and saved file as instead of clicking through. Hopefully the rest of the process goes smoothly!

It happens. Every so often I try to flash a ROM that I downloaded that had corrupted data and get weird errors.

Do you have an Evo V or a Sprint Evo 3D that was manually flashed to Virgin Mobile?

Some Evo V's are still labeled as Sprint. If you've done no modification to it (outside of logging in to Google and installing apps, normal use stuff) then you have an Evo V and should use this guide:

Complete Newbie's Guide to rooting and flashing Evo V 4G ROMs/Kernels using fastboot

The guides differ a bit between the devices, so you have to use that guide.

Are you in the fastboot directory? Did you download and extract the mini-sdk to the folder I suggested? (It should be C:\sdk-tools if you followed the guide)

Hmm...that's just odd. Do other fastboot commands work? Can you type "fastboot" into the cmd window and get a list of commands?

I think I might have just solved my own problem thinking back when I had to stop the process after I unlocked my boot loader, never turned fast boot back off through power settings nor re enabled usb debugging. Though I did notice one thing when you was helping another. You said they need to place recovery.img in the fast boot directory and not just in the sdk-tools folder unless I read that wrong? Will update if it works for me tomorrow

What error does it give you? It'll be key for figuring out your problem.

HTC dev's site has a lot of problems. It does this often. Try again later.

fastboot should be in the sdk-tools folder if you installed mini-sdk. If you installed the full Android SDK, then the fastboot executable will be in the Android SDK folder in Program Files.

I had the same problem. Try a different browser. It didn't work for me on either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome for some reason, but worked just fine on Internet Explorer.

rename the file 'recovery-twrp-shooter-1.1.1.img' to 'recovery.img'. Place this file in your sdk-tools folder.

If you did like me.. that file will be on your desktop. move it to the sdk-tools folder.. and your good to go.

Default My name is Steve. I'm a noob. I love my rooted 3VO.

Hey everyone! I just got to say how awesome the complete guide to rooting is! I successfully rooted my phone last night in under two hours (would have been quicker had I not been doing other things). I was on the fence about rooting, considering the fact that I felt like information about the entire process was too scattered across the Internet. I read through this guide and decided to take on the task. I am glad I did! I went with MEANRom ICS 2.4 and have not been able to put my phone down. I had complete success on the first try; no looping of boatloader at all. Great job jerofld and any other contributors to the guide!

My next task is going to S-Off. I am thinking about doing the wire trick, but the information I find states that I must have the stock ROM loaded before going S-Off. Is this true, or is there a way to leave MEANRom loaded and still do S-Off? If so, how exactly?

Also, I downloaded 4Ext (the paid version) last night, but haven't quite had a chance to explore its features. If I understand correctly, I can use this app to load new ROMs at any time without having to use the FASTBOOT method. Is this right?

I'm still learning all the terminology, so forgive me if I made a mistake.

Cheers to rooting!

Steve

I'm no expert, and I'm sure your looking for exactly that, but it would seem that the GSM process on page 1 would work just fine. The only difference might be that you find the stock ICS ROM or the previous factory ROM. Everything else should be the same.

When I try to show any of the steps by clicking show, all that pops up is %1$s. Why is that?

Yes but i didn't flash the ROM that was rooted, instead just flashed the su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip. This worked great because I didn't want to change my current stock ICS.
