I think I have gingerbread, and I think the phone was 2.3.4 from the factory but not 100% sure.

Thanks
welcome to forums!!!!!!!!!

NO!!!!!!

THIS IS SPECIFIC TO THE HTC EVO 4G. if you try this on your phone it will most likely brick it.

please go to the Incredible 2 - All Things Root - Android Forums

at the top of the forum, there is a Incredible 2: All Things Root Guide. in it you should find the link to unroot your phone.

good luck

I ended up using a rooted stock rom. I tried half a dozen others, but went back to what I've used for 2.5 years. Man, I still dig my phone.

The only glitch is with Google Talk. The email address originally set with my evo was xyxyxyx93@gmail.com.

After the latest re-root, I set the phone to a different gmail account. The gmail app worked great, I set up IMAP accounts and they all sync great. However, I keep getting a phone notif that "Talk Failed to Authenticate". It's trying to authenticate to the original xyxyxyx93@gmail.com email address. I've activated this Google Talk account and enabled "chat" for this account on my laptop.

The error won't go away and I sure hope I don't have to do everything all over again.

Any thoughts?

If you hit the Submit button and received a confirmation, then you should have an email. Check your junk or spam folder. Check the email address you started with in HTC to confirm that's it's correct

Hey, I had to do it twice because of a little mistake on my part.

Hope it works for you.

try going to recovery ad wipe dalvik cache and cache. that usually fixes most error and bugs. if not then try and wipe dalvik cache and cache again and re-flash the rom. it will not wipe data so you should be fine....it could be a bad flash.

i have tried the adb method but kept getting this message "C:\Users\IRIS\Desktop\evo 4g>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
'fastboot' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file."

I wanted to try the PC36IMG method but I wasnt sure if I am supposed to rename the recovery.img file to PC36IMG

then I tried the Andriod flasher and when I ran it kept giving a error message

any clues?

When you are doing the adb method, did you extract the recovery.img file from the .zip and put that in your Android folder? Then run the command from the folder while your phone is plugged into the computer and in fastboot mode (on the bootloader screen)?

When we move the rom to the card, do i go ahead and move the actual zip folder or extract and then transfer those files? Also when creating the nandriod should X out all the options ?

Do not extract it...leave it zipped.
On the nandroid...the first 3 should be checked and then wimax also, I believe should be checked.

What rom is asking you to do that?
And in recovery, the "toggle signature verification" will do that.

No, .... I'm trying to remember where it was, but it's in there...perhaps under "advanced"?...You are on AmonRa recovery?

Edit: try under "other"

I'm gonna fire up my old Evo, and install Amon Ra recovery and see where it is.
This rom you are trying to flash....do you have a link for it or did you find it in the list that is stickied?

Never ran a JB type rom, so I really cant tell ya what's good or not.
Just remember, before flashing a rom, make a nandroid backup.

Say what? lemme try that again

Edit: yup...I shut my phone off, then hold volume up and power....then bootloader screen. (the fastboot screen to be exact...where the word "fastboot" is in red)

Then power off again, volume down/power....then into bootloader. But this time with the blue text "Hboot" .
wierd huh?

Edit yet again: what hboot are you on? Maybe that has something to do with it.

Actually, you're right. I could'a sworn it didnt' work before but I get exactly the same thing as you. Vol down/power works fine...will edit my post.
