Default How to revert to Gingerbread from ICS?

Thank you so much for letting me know this can be done! I spent a fruitless hour with HTC (again!) today with the CSR yelling at me and telling me it was impossible to go back to Gingerbread because my phone would no longer be compatible with something called "radios" now that I've (unwittingly, unhappily and pretty much nonconsentually) accepting the ICS downgrade.

Please, can you tell me how I can revert back to Gingerbread (which I was totally happy with and that worked perfectly) on my phone, which is an HTC Evo 3D? My phone is completely worthless for anything, even after trying to apply all of HTC's and Sprint's suggested fixes. Most of those fixes either did nothing (best case) or made things worse while not fixing anything. The only other suggestions they have entail me incurring more monetary expenses and/or being without my phone (which I pretty much am anyway now) for weeks.

I'd really appreciate any help you can give me!

Hi HauntedDollie and welcome to the forums.

I don't know much about the HTC so I moved your post to the EVO 3D forums so you can get more help with this. Unlike the Galaxy S2, I think you need to be rooted to do it with your phone. Lots of smart people here that can tell you what to do.

Good luck!

Unfortunately I am on my phone right now and not my computer. I am probably the wrong person to be answering your questions but I agree you need to be rooted. You can pretty painlessly root using jerofld's guide here :
http://androidforums.com/evo-3d-all-things-root/494212-complete-newbies-guide-rooting-flashing-evo-3d-roms-kernels-using-fastboot.html

Honestly I did it with no prior knowledge.
After following this whole guide you will need to relock your bootloader. Sorry I don't have a link right now for instructions. Then download this file
Shipped ROMs


And run on your pc.

Follow these steps http://androidforums.com/evo-3d-all-things-root/606454-looking-help-installing-because-i-am-very-new-rooting-2.html#post4862361


Then flash the stock gingerbread rom Dev-Host - Shooter_S_Sprint_WWE_2.17.651.5_odex.zip - The Ultimate Free File Hosting / File Sharing Service http://d01.megashares.com/dl/srTe15g...651.5_odex.zip

Sorry if the links don't work. I am on my phone. Also please don't take my advice as a sure thing. I am new to rooting but from what I've learned so far this is my best advice for what should work. You should probably wait for a mod to verify this info. I may have messed up as its difficult to put a guide together on your phone. I just saw you didn't have replies so I offered what I could to contribute to the Site. Good luck and feel free to ask if you have any questions

I would have liked to get more detailed but it is really difficult on my phone. I'm sure a mod will be around to correct me or assist further but in case they aren't feel free to let me know if you need more info and I will be more thorough once I can get on the computer

excellent job! only thing i have to add,is that you will need to complete the optional step for s-off. unfortunately,this is a requirement if you wish to "roll back" your firmware to gingerbread. just completing the steps to htcdev unlock will let you root,and even flash roms,but the s-on phone will not let you go backwards in software build numbers,and simplyh flashing a custom rom on htcdev unlock,will not work,for the same reasons that james' ics roms werent working with his GB firmware,but in reverse. GB and ICS firmwares are not interchangeable,and unless a GB rom is specially modified to run on ics firmware,it will not work.

thus,s-off will be a requirement to achieve your end goal of going back to GB.

I assume that you are pretty familiar with rooting? I can put together a quick bare bones tutorial later tonight or tomorrow maybe if needed.
If you don't mind a little extra reading and skimming I will link you to help now.

Use this: http://androidforums.com/evo-3d-all-things-root/494212-complete-newbies-guide-rooting-flashing-evo-3d-roms-kernels-using-fastboot.html

Follow the optional step to get s-off.

(I don't think it's necessary to flash the rom in the tutorial. You just need s-off to run the GB ruu posted above. Make sure you download gb 2.17 ruu and not ics)

Then everything else you need to downgrade is in this thread: http://androidforums.com/evo-3d-all-things-root/606454-looking-help-installing-because-i-am-very-new-rooting.html

Like I said there is more info than you need in there. Don't be misled by the thread title. It eventually gets to the downgrade. I asked a lot of questions in there and DonB and Scotty85 provided a lot of detailed answers. It is a very useful thread in general especially for anyone new to rooting.

Oh that's a good point. I'm not sure if this will work on 1.58. I was already s-off from 1.5 before the downgrade.

Can't he still htc dev unlock? Then it's the wire trick. Or does the control bear software only work with 1.5?
If I have time I'll check. Going to a family thing soon for awhile and will be disconnected.

I don't believe JuopunutBear works on HBoot 1.58 as of yet, I could be wrong, I would post in the Devs thread and see what they say there

It says they support ics. But to be safe I also posted a link to their help chat. That might be a good place to verify.

Yep best to ask, there is always someone there to answer, they are pretty good from what I am told.

Also might be those who are flashed to ICS Roms on HBoot 1.5, why it is best to ask

Also just a note when you try this. When I tried to downgrade from ICS to GB the RUU would fail to update. I was told to boot into fastboot and then run the RUU and it worked. So if you have problems with the RUU, there is another thing you can try.

Also I will answer any question that I can so ask away if needed! Just don't ask me anything too hard!

Scotty yes I used the wire trick on hboot 1.5. We weren't sure if it works on HBoot 1.58. He was OTA ICS. Better to verify than have someone ruin their phone! I'm just a newb myself so I have to ask these things when I'm unsure to keep things safe.
