I connected the phone and selected the 'Disk drive mounting' option.

Any ideas as to what I can do to make the phone appear?
The adb file can be unzipped into a folder of your choosing. You just need to know the name and location of it to get there in the command prompt. You should have it plugged in and set to charge only. Let me know if you still have issues getting it recognized.

If you plug in your phone in disk drive, does it recognize it and allow access to the sdcard? You might try installing HTC Sync then uninstalling it to leave the drivers for it if you haven't already.

Sorry for being such a pest.

The following command, Adb shell “echo ‘boot-recovery’ > /cache/recovery/command”, yielded the following:
The system cannot find the path specified

Are you in the folder that you unzipped adb too? If you type adb devices, does it come back with your device number?

Interesting, instead of copy and pasting, I typed it in and am now getting a permission denied response.

I notice the difference between the copy & paste is the open & close apostrophe's around 'boot recovery'.

In any case, permission denied. Is there something I need to open up?

Try and reboot your computer. Also, verify that you do have s-off in hboot....just to be sure

This is quite an ordeal! Thanks for sticking around.

I rebooted, have confirmed hboot is s-off but am still receiving the permission denied issue.

I am also now getting a 'adb server is out of date. killing...' message before the command is processed. I don't think this is a big issue as the orders are still being run...but strange that it shows up now.

I have not seen that message before. I am at work, but I will look into it when I get a few minutes. Are you an admin on the pc you are using?

ok so the permission denied can be one of two things. one it could actually be denying permission. check the superuser app in your phone and see if there is any permission denied . also that phrase is generic. it could mean that it does not understand the command.
try typing the command adb shell “echo ‘boot-recovery(try a single space right here)’ > /cache/recovery/command”

For some reason it is denying access to the phone. I have tried to reproduce the permission denied but I am not able to on my pc. I have used mine alot for adb and have not seen that error as yet. Are you unable to use recovery from your phone to unroot?

I'm in need of some help here. My power button is broken.

I'm stuck on installing unrevoked s-on tool

It's telling me radio version unsupported and failing install.

Can you tell me the commands to roll back my radio version? I've got it downloaded, but don't know the commands to get the radio to install through adb.

any help is appreciated

edit//

I tried modifying the install commands as such:
Adb shell “echo ‘boot-recovery’ > /cache/recovery/command”
Adb shell “echo ‘--update_package=SDCARD:EVO_Radio_1.39.00.05.31.zip’ >> /cache/recovery/command”
Adb shell “reboot recovery”

but it sits in recovery "updating" but it doesn't seem to stick. once I reboot by pulling battery it still shows the old radio version.

Do you have s-on? Run the RUU that Ocn linked you too.....it should restore your to stock. There have been times where nand doesn't lock til the RUU is flashed.

I haven't been able to run the unrevoked s-on tool since I'm getting a radio version error.

I'll try the RUU and see what happens

edit: error 171: usb connection error
it's still connected of course, but it sure fails. I'l try running straight to the computer instead of through a hub

edit 2: still usb connection error

are you using the original cable or an aftermarket replacement? Try a different usb port also if direct doesn't work.

When you type in adb devices in the command prompt, does it come back with the serial number for your phone?

yes it does, but interesting enough after trying to run one of the RUU programs it appears to be slightly different.

right now it says: ht06chl13053

From what I can tell all is fine until it is trying to load into the bootloader. The screen shows the white HTC lettering and during that it loses connection and quits.

ADB will lose connection in bootloader. You need the .76 engineered bootloader to allow use of fastboot commands. Do you have the s-on tool on your sdcard? Does it fail to flash that or does it error before that?

its on the card. It fails to install because it says radio version mismatch. So I tried downgrading my radio, but I'm not sure the exact commands to do it. I downloaded the radio zip and its on my sd card ready to go.

I am on my phone currently. When i get to my pc i will link you to the pc36img file for the radio that came with the last 2.2 release. It will flash in hboot.

Download this file. Rename it PC36IMG.zip by removing the -3.70Radio from the name. Put it on the root of your sdcard and reboot to bootloader. When it scans and finds the file, tell it to update. When done, tell it to reboot and check your baseband....is should be 02.15.00.11.19 I believe. Then try and unroot using the steps in Unroot for Warranty Service.

Yes. Once it scans and finds the file, volume up will tell it to update. When its done updating, volume up will reboot it.

No problem. Let me know if it works or if you still have problems.

well I tried and it didn't seem to work. I renamed the file and put it on sdcard. I then used adb to reboot to bootloader via command adb shell "reboot bootloader"

it reboots to the bootloader and just sits there. I tried the volume buttons, but those didn't seem to do anything. So it seemed sort of frozen.

That command takes you to the fastboot screen. I am looking for a way to get to the bootloader screen and then it will scan for the file. Can you boot to hboot from the phone via an app? Does your power button work at all?

Edit: I just looked back and it said you have hboot .76. Does it say ENG next to where it says S-OFF?

Download the RUU for .97 and below from the OP. With the engineered bootloader, you don't need to turn s-on. When the RUU runs, it will replace the engineered bootloader with the stock one, replace the recovery, and replace the rom all with stock. You should be good to go after that. The RUU I posted there are run from the PC so no need to use the buttons on the phone.

as an experiment I unplugged the usb and that takes me to the bootloader screen. when plugged back in it goes back to white htc screen.

It seems computer is interferring with it getting to bootloader. So I'm trying a different computer to see what happens

If that doesn't work, try the RUU for 2.10. There may be something wrong with that RUU. Also, let me know what it says now on the hboot screen when it comes up

Unfortunately the only way to unroot at this time is by using the volume buttons. Hboot requires a different set up to be able to use commands from the pc and if you have anything but the Hboot .76 then they do not work. If it is a hardware issue, I would just call your local Sprint store and tell them you have a rooted phone with a volume rocker problem and see if they have issue fixing a rooted phone. Most will not as it is a hardware problem.

That may be. You can try and just use the RUU run from the pc to get it back to stock. Unless they check hboot, they should not know its rooted. A volume rocker should be a simple repair and not a replacement unless the switch inside is damaged.
