I ended up flashing Reloaded .500, but installed applications before installing a2sd.

In this thread -
[ROM][AOSP]LOTK's Deck's ReLoaded .500 Philo RLS

Quote:
Mikestony give the following:

In the op of the rom, post 2(?) you will see 2 different downloads for DTa2sd.
Pick one, I use the beta version myself.
Download it and transfer to your sd card.
Flash from recovery.
Wipe cache and dalvik then flash.
then reboot.
It should move your apps to the sd ext. upon reboot.
If not, go into Terminal Emulator and enter this commmand.

a2sd reinstall

Presto! apps to sd done!
Double check in TB
Do if flash a2sd from recovery, THEN
wipe cache and delvik, THEN RE-FLASH a2sd again?
Thanks.

Thanks.
you just need to wipe dalvik cache and cache and flash dt no need to reflash it.

So true...Actually, I couldn't wait for a response so I flashed wiped both caches, and reflashed. Went into my virgin reboot loop, so I just wiped all, then superwiped, and restored from my Nandroid.

Two more quick questions:

The guide says I only need one Nandroid backup with wimax, and that future backups don't need it. Why is that, just curious?

In the wipe menu in Smelk recovery, there are Combowipe option called SuperWipe (T+(B,C,D,S)*3) that include wiping the boot. Would that wipe the custom recovery that is installed as well? Or is that the same exact thing that is done when I flash the ZZZVR_Superwipe.zip file...(seems like it)?

its the same as superwipe just built into the recovery is all.

and wimax only needs to be backed up once. keep that nandroid backup someplace safe as there is a very small chance of you loosing it when flashing things (mainly radios). and once it is lost it is lost for good unless you have a nandroid backup with wimax backed up.

wimax does take a bit of room so it is not necessary to back it up always.....but that is up to you.

Can someone help me. I'm trying to unlock the bootloader. I sent the submitted the code on the htcdev website but I didn't get an email back from them. Does it take long? I copied and paste the code from "<<<< Identifier Token Start >>>>" to "<<<<< Identifier Token End >>>>>"
Am I doing something wrong?

No, you are not doing anything wrong. In fact we were just discussing this very issue in this thread:
Root Start

Others are having issues also

yeah i hope HTC steps up and maybe update their servers or obtain some more. since they have gone the way of locking their bootloaders more and more peeps will need the unlocking services......

com'on HTC get with the program......Samsung has now passed you by and you are gonna need something to catch up to them or i might leave you on my next upgrade!!!!!!!

I was able to root the phone flawlessly using this How To and the HTC method! thank you so much.

I have a little question though, how do I get S-Off? I want to flash a ROM that requires that,
or does anyone know of a stock ICS S-On ROM?

thanks!

welcome to the forums!!!!!!!
now that you are unlocked you can't use taco root so if you want s-off you will need to use captn's method to get s-off.

What rom requires you to have s-off? Or did I not understand your statement/question correctly?

oh yeah if you have a recovery and the bootloader is unlocked then you do not need to worry about roms and kernels. those all can be flashed with a custom recovery.

the only thing you can't flash is a PC36IMG file that is done through the bootloader. the PC36IMG file is just a name of the file that the phone is programmed to look for. it can be any thing from radios, ruu's(rom update utility), or custom recoveries among others. those you can't do with an unlocked bootloader.

so you are good........ happy flashing

I'm trying to get this one:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1941455

I already tried CM7 and some other one called ginger dock or something like that, didn't really like any of them. I really liked the ICS froyo ROM on my intercept so I'm trying to get a similar on for the EVO.

wait what phone do you have? that is for the evo 3d and not the evo 4g.

flashing the wrong rom on the wrong phone is not good and will brick your phone most likely.

Oh, please be careful what you flash. That rom in that link is not for the Evo4G. Is that your device?
I'm typing slow and I have a feeling I'm gonna get ninj'd .

do not be. it is very easy to do. just make sure that you pay attention to what you are flashing. i have seen many bricked phones because of this.

now most of the roms can be found here:{The List} Utilities/Apps/Roms/Kernels for the OG EVO.

try the staff picks. they are great suggestions.

Thanks guys! checking out the ROMs now, I've only ever briked one phone once and was able to fix it with the recovery but I don't want to deal with that again. Luckily this EVO is not my main phone, I just picked it up to play emulators. Got it off a Forum for $15

Just flashed .500! looks awesome. AND it has HDMwIn built it, which is what I wanted so much for my emulators

It was $15 because it had a cracked screen/digitizer, I was able to buy replacements and other goodies for an extra $20 off Amazon(plus some credit I had saved up.)

It ended up costing me $35 in the end for a refurbished unit basically.

I did everything, and on the final reboot, it it shows a vertical loading bar on the right and when that finishes it says its "checking..PC36IMG.zip" file and then says
"Main version is older!
Update Fail!
Do you want to reboot device?
<VOL UP> Yes
<VOL DOWN> No"

what do i do now?

ok then something is not right. when you did taco root, did the output when you downgraded your misc partition match with the output shown in the guide? it needs to be exact.

steps 11 and 12 is where you use the commands that will downgrade the misc partition. in the guide there is a screen shot of what the commands should be and what the ouputs should be as well. it needs to be exact or the commands did not work and you will need to start over.

yeah if it worked then you should be able to use the PC36IMG file with no issues. so keep trying until you get the same output shown in the guide.

no htc sync is not needed for taco root initially. you will need it if you use unrevoked or revolutionary to get s-off.

then the taco root command did not work.

the whole idea is to use taco root command to gain a temporary root access so that you can downgrade the misc partition. this would then allow you to use any PC36IMG rom file to downgrade to an earlier OTA so that you can use either unrevoked or revolutionary to gain s-off.

so you will need to run taco root again.

so do you have s-off? if so then you can just wipe and flash the rom. please read the second post of the guide for more details about flashing.

If you now have s-off, why are you running Unrevoked again? Or perhaps I am misunderstanding you

so you do not have s-off then? not sure why you are running unrevoked again if you do like mikey has asked.

if you do not have s-off then there are a couple of things this could be:
1. do you have the drivers installed correctly? you need the hboot driver that is found in the unrevoked wki
2.you need to install htc sync and then uninstall it leaving the drivers on the pc
3.make sure that there is no antivirus running on the pc
4.make sure that there is no sync type program running like double twist or pda net that could cause communication errors.
5.make sure that you have the phone set as charge only
6.usb debugging is also turned on.

all of this can be found in the ROOTING For Dummies in the secrion 1, the pre rooting section.

What recovery do you have? I forgot if unrevoked puts a custom recovery on the phone or not?
