Firmware for (CDMA) Sprint Evo 3d & Virgin Mobile Evo V

Warning: For CDMA phones only!!!

Do not use on GSM phones!
Will work on Sprint and Virgin Mobile.
S-off Required.

These files will update your base, hboot, radios, and firmware. They are more or less similar to running the RUU but with less hassle and without losing root. When changing between ICS & GB (1.58 and 1.5-) hboots for roms that require it, I would recommend using these full update packages as you will likely want more than just the hboot switching between roms that require a different build.

*Download "Info.txt" to see additional details and list of files contained in the zip.

My EVO V 4G shows a "Software number" of "1.13.652.2 710RD", but when I ask it to perform an HTC Software update check, it says all is up to date.

Am I to assume that 1.14.652.0 is not needed for my phone??

It's hard to say without knowing everything you've done to your phone. The update was really a firmware update. Possibly you already have the updated firmware on your phone.

Also, being rooted, maybe the OTA is disabled on the rom you are using?

I have not really seen this happen before so I can't say for sure, but those are a couple of guesses that I have for you... Sorry I don't have anything definitive.

If you want ensure you have everything updated, one possibility would be to run the ruu and return to stock. Then see if you can take the ota, and then root again.

Although, if you are s-off, you can just flash all the firmware bits through the bootloader, which would update you to everything that the OTA updated.

Thanks a lot for providing this.

I have a question though... regarding the latest ICS firmware shown for Sprint here (build 2.89.651.2), does this contain Android 4.0.4? The firmware on my phone shows this build number, but the Android version shows as 4.0.3. My Evo 3D is not yet activated so I can't do OTA (will activate it in a week or two), but I'd like to get 4.0.4 installed ahead of time (it has a few fixes, including some improvements to the camera function).

None of these files contain any software. Just the firmware from all the updates. So when using these, it will not change or update your software version.
It's been awhile since I've been on stock. But I'm not sure that they updated the evo 3d to anything newer than what you're on. You can flash roms that are built around software we don't have though

Thanks, Brian. I have since learned a few more useful things regarding Android ICS versions.

While Android ICS finished up with 4.0.4, there was no release made for the Evo 3D. Thus, 4.0.3 remains the latest via OTA. I have no idea if anybody created a custom ICS ROM that incorporates some of the fixes that were made for 4.0.4.

Also, I noticed you're using 4EXT for recovery. I'm curious as to why you prefer this over TWRP 2. I've been using TWRP and have found it very robust and reliable. But I have to admit I'm not familiar with 4EXT and don't know if there's functionality provided that is superior... or just different.

4EXT provides a more consistent way for S-ON folks to successfully flash custom ROMs. It's also touch enabled, so it's a little bit easier to navigate, IMO.

I've not used twrp 2. I had twrp 1.1.1 which compared to 4ext is quite bland. 4ext works well, I'm used to it and have never had any problems using it. I can really give a comparison as I haven't used twrps touch version. But as toad said, 4ext is very beneficial to s-on users. It allows them to flash some roms more easily.

Thanks, Toad & Brian. I've installed 4EXT on my Evo 3D and I really like it. I guess that "touch enabled" is all about the installed app that integrates use of the recovery options from the active ROM? It's really terrific, a good step above TWRP. Well anyway, it seems that 4EXT has a very limited release of supported phones, so if yours falls within it's best to gear up for the advantages it gives over TWRP and CWM.

And yes, being given the chance to apply custom ROMs with S-ON is a nice advantage. I wonder... does this mean that ROMs like CM10 that say you need S-OFF can still work on your hboot with S-ON as long as the version matches?

The app is optional. It's fully functional without the app. You will see that even inside the recovery, touch screen is enabled.

Assuming you were on the proper hboot, which you can't change while s-on, you should be able to flash with 4ext.

Confused ROM problem

I downgraded my Hboot from 1.57.5757 (jbear) to 1.40 using this method on my Evo 3d CDMA (Virgin Mobile). Though after the update installed from bootloader, it booted into a bootloop. I was running an ICS stock rom I downloaded. I cannot access recovery directly, and trying to boot into fastboot asks me to update again. How can I flash a different Rom without recovery? Or is there another fix?

Hey Kelly,
First off, to save some typing, I am going to copy/paste from the first post the instructions that are hidden below the "Show" button.

Quote:
First let me start by stressing something important! Verify the integrity of the download by checking the file against its md5 checksum that I provided for each file. You can use a free software such as MD5 Checker to do the job. Or if you'd like to check on your phone without a pc, download MD5 Checker for android from the play store. If for whatever reason your download gets corrupted, using a corrupted file can brick your phone! So use an md5 checker to verify the integrity of the file, it's quick and easy and can keep your phone safe!

1. Download File. Check md5 for a match

2. Place the file on the root of your sd card (not in any folders).

3. Rename the file to PG86IMG.zip

4. Reboot into bootloader.

5. When asked to update, say yes by hitting volume up.

6. When it's all finished, hit power button to reboot.

7. *Important! After booting up, immediately rename or delete the file.

*The presence of the file on your sd card will prevent you from entering recovery in an emergency situation. It's nothing to panic about, but if you get caught in a bootloop, you will have to manually remove the file using a pc and card reader or another phone. That said, to avoid bootloops and being stuck with no way to boot up and no way to enter recovery, plan ahead. If you are on a rom that requires hboot 1.58 and you flash hboot 1.5, you will hit a bootloop and not be able to access recovery. You would then need to remove the file or flash a compatible rom through fastboot connected to a pc.

Okay. Now with instructions and warnings out of the way, I will give you my personal preference on how to flash a different hboot that will be incompatible with your current rom without getting a bootloop and having to use a pc to fix the situation.

Follow steps 1-3 above. Stop! Now, instead of rebooting into the bootloader, we are going to bypass the bootloader by rebooting directly into recovery. Some roms have this feature built in. I recommend downloading something like ROM TOOLBOX from the play store. It's a great app to have if you are rooted. Rom Toolbox has a built in rebooter menu (with widgets) that allows this function. So once in recovery, wipe and flash the rom normally. Once finished, continue to steps 4-7.

This will allow you to do everything completely from your phone and avoid getting stuck. Remember, this is just for when you are changing hboots that will be incompatible with the rom you are already using (ie: ICS to GB). Just following steps 1-7 normally is fine for just flashing radios or switching between different GB hboots etc.
The reason your phone won't boot is because Stock ICS isn't compatible with that hboot. Above in the instructions I posted, there is also pointers on how to do this without getting stuck in a bootloop. Hopefully if you understand the steps, you won't get stuck again in the future.

You need to remove the PG86IMG.zip from the sd card. Either with a card reader or by putting the sd card into a spare device. As long as it's there, you can't access recovery.

Once removed, you can flash any compatible rom through your recovery or change back to hboot 1.57.

To help you get started with choosing a rom, check out this thread by Dragonslayer95:

Hey Y'all! Finally scratched up the courage to downgrade my HBoot, because I suspect a couple of issues I've had with some 4.1 sense ROMs were HBoot related. Anyway, either stupidly or courageously, I tried an alternate method of flashing a new Hboot (discovered on XDA and confirmed at Unlimited.IO), that mostly eliminates the risk of leaving a P86IMG file on SD. I just tried it and found it quite easy. I was 1.5858 (JBear) and just flashed 1.5050. I flashed it while I was on NegaLite-BluRom. (Yeah, I know my profile might say something else, but I'm a flash-a-holic due to someone's (no names mentioned, Brian ) help!

Anyway, here's the link for the alternative method.

Hey toad! Congrats on s-off

Basically what happened is you flashed an hboot that isn't compatible with your rom. That rom requires a newer hboot 1.58.0000.

You flashed a lower hboot hence the bootloop. You need to either flash a compatible rom or flash back to the other hboot.


Also view my instructions in post one by clicking show to see how to avoid bootloops while changing hboots to switch roms. I know you weren't changing roms though. If you are going to flash another rom, you need to remove the PG86IMG file from your sd card with a card reader or another device so that you can access recovery. Or you can get to recovery by using adb to get to fastboot usb mode (adb reboot bootloader) and then boot recovery with (fastboot boot recovery.img) then mount sd through recovery and remove the PG86IMG file. Either replace it with the 1.58 bootloader or flash a gb or jb rom that I compatible with 1.50

Thanks, Brian. I thought I was cool, but it rebooted a time or thousand after seemingly good for a few. Wiping Dalvik/Cache seemed to help a bit, but not for long... Reflashing a Sense 4.1 I had issues with earlier, now (though I'd really rather go to sleep!). NOW, I have no good reason NOT to flash JB!

Sorry, fell asleep last night. It doesn't matter which radio you use. Did you rename the file? Are you following the instructions from post 1?

I don't think there really is a best radio for every single person. Some people have luck with certain ones more than others. I think it depends on location and maybe some other things as well. Try them all!

I don't think so... The mount points are different for Hboot 1.50 and 1.58 and a boot.img designed for 1.58 will not work on 1.50.

I can't help you with a link... You can sign up though at http://anthrax-kernels.us/

I don't think there would be any real problems. It might break mms but I'm not sure about that.

What is it that you are wanting? Do you need the whole firmware or are you just needing a portion of it?

Also what hoot and rom are you on? If you are running jellybean that will upgrade your hboot and you won't be able to boot up.

Those files can be modified. For example you could remove the hboot from the zip after downloading, or delete everything but the radio for example if you were just looking for the radio.

well... here i go again. i just bricked my 2nd 3vo. what i was going for was.. i've been running a sprint 3vo that i flashed to virgin. everything was working fine but i just decided to flash harmonia rom and wanted to complete it by getting the rest of the Evo V firmware and everything on it. checked md5sum before flashing and it checked out fine but after i selected update from the bootloader it went threw the like 3 things OK i seen the orange bar on the top right and then the phone just shut down never to turn back on again. i was running revolutionary hboot 1.40 just like the time i bricked the last one... i think there may be some connection. looks like i'll be sporting my Optimus for a little bit again untill i can afford to get another 3vo.

Dang that's crazy! I'm not sure what would cause that to happen?! What happens if you plug the phone into the pc? Open device manager and plug it in and see if anything shows up.

When I plug it in device manager shows it as... oh what was it .. QHSUSB_DL or something, no red charging light and not detected by adb or fastboot. Same condition as the last one. Unless someone's figured out how to use qpst to write to the phone recently its a paperweight now

Brian706: I'm looking at your radio page, due to very poor signal in my Washington area. When click on download on latest radio, hardware, firmware it says updated on June 2013. My hboot shows have radio 1.09.00.0108, which I understand is the latest. Which did some months back when changed to J-Bear 1.50. hboot. So what is updated on the download?? Is it possible to get better signal on older radio or firmware/hardware.

Can you suggest anything that would improve signal quality. Like today looking at new wallpaper or themes, and I get error that have no connection. Although have Wi-Fi and at least one bar on the 3g or 1x bar. I'm on the MIUI V5 rom.

You are on the latest radio. That is just the day that I uploaded the file to my copy account. the radio itself hasn't been updated, just my download link.

I'm kind of in the same boat as you. I simply don't have good sprint coverage in my area. Have you tried any of the other radios? You could experiment and see if any give you a slight advantage, but I think in our cases poor coverage is poor coverage.

If you look at their coverage map, the east coast is covered so much more than our area. I've been debating on switching to AT&T for that reason, but I sure like that sprint doesn't enforce a rooting policy.
