I received this error when i submitted my ID token I am just doing an htc dev

Default buttons not responding.

I have been trying to root my HTC Evo 4g but my issue is for whatever reason in the bootloader or fastboot related screens my volume and power buttons will not respond what so ever. So even when I have tried the htcdev I can select yes and contuine and when I have tried the taco root method I can't really get into recovery. I have tried using ADB to get into recovery and once the red triangle pops up when I press and hold the volume buttons and power to get the stock recovery menu it simply reboots the phone.

Welcome JGR1906!
So have you completed the HTCDev method successfully?
Do the power and volume buttons function normally when booted into the operating system?

The volume up button doesn't work at all however the volume down and power does. I haven't been able to complete the htcdev route because when it ask me to to select yes and confirm to unlock bootloader none of the buttons will respond.

Odd that the volume down and power work except when in bootloader
I am stumped at the moment. Let me poke at my brain some more about this.

the only thing that maybe work is to try taco root since it is done with mostly commands on the pc. you did mention you tried to do the vol up and down + the power button and it just rebooted, correct? do you have fastboot unchecked in the phone settings?

if the answer is yes then this is a hardware issue and anything that i can think of will not work, unless you get the button issue fixed.

yeah you need to get into the stock recovery(power+vol up and vol down) first in order for taco root to work.

hmmmmm.....try a couple things.
First boot into recovery, wipe cache and dalvik cache, reboot, then try it again.
If that's a no go, then go into manage applications/all, find the playstore and gmail and clear data and cache, then try to sign in.
If that still doesn't work, boot back into recovery, wipe everything 3 times (EXCEPT THE SD CARD) and reflash the rom.

Edit:just saw your edit...you use 2 step verification eh? So do I

Don't feel bad, I do the same thing too. Flash a new rom while out and about without access to a computer and can't sign into google without an application specific password.

As we speak, I am flashing Decks Reloaded again to my Evo

Hello everyone! It seems that I'm back!
I haven't done much since using this guide to root my phone, but today, I connected it to my computer (as disk drive) to move some stuff around.
Upon attempting to disconnect my phone, I noticed that I wasn't getting the usual "login" screen on my phone. Instead, it just displayed my background and the notification bar.
Restarting, wiping cache and Dalvik cache did nothing.
I don't want to get too hasty with reflashing, so.. here I am

Any clues for what I can do?

Edit: And no, I can't pull the notification bar down...
And my computer isn't recognizing my phone right now either, since it's probably set back to charge only with debugging off.

I remember that happening to me too. Trying to remember what I did to fix that.
It was either boot into recovery, and fix permissions, then reboot.
Or dirty flash the rom, meaning, no wiping, just reflash

what recovery do you have?on the main menu for most of the popular recoveries, it should be in the main menu under the advanced selection.

I believe in Amon, you go to the "other" menu.
Then the option to fix permissions will be there

Be sure to make a nandroid backup when you are all set up.
I'll find the link on doing that if you are not familiar with it

Edit: better yet, here is the quote taken from post 2 of this guide thread you are in:
Quote:
what are nandroid backups and why are they important? well nandroid backups are a complete snapshot of the current state of your phone. it will save everything (contacts, apps and its data, emails and text messages, and any other mods or settings you have on your rom). think of nandroid backups as a safety net. if anything goes wrong or if you change your mind on a rom you do not like, you can always go back and restore a previous nandroid backup. just remember that anytime you make any changes to your phone always make a nandroid backup.

also to save space keep only a few nandroids on your card. nandroids can be pretty big depending on the rom and what you are backing up. and you can rename your nandroid backups. just make sure not to have spaces or weird symbols in the name.

when doing a nandroid backup in amon ra, make sure to keep the first three checked then check wimax (you do not need to do this all the time.) just keep one nandroid backup with your wimax keys backed up on your computer. the rest of the time when doing nandroid backups, you can just backup the first three in amon ra. also if you have your sd card partitioned (see the Partitioning and Moving Apps to the Card section for the how to's) you should select sd ext as well. this wiil also backup all your apps.

clockwork mod will backup wimax automatically.

one of the things you can do to help keep your nandroid backups organized is to rename them. but in order to do that you have to know where to find them. in amon ra recovery they are found in the nandroid folder that is created on the sd card. in clockwork mod they are found in the clockwork mod folder. for amon ra there is a sub folder that is phone specific. mine is named: HT0CVHL01139. inside this folder is your nandroid backup. it should look like:BDES-20120323-0530.

now to rename them, you can rename them to anything that you like, just do not use any weird symbols and do not use spaces within the name. for me i usually just rename them by deleting the BDES part and insert the name of the rom it belongs to. for instance CM7-20120323-0530 could be a name of one of my nandroid backups. also if you notice the numbers correspond to date and time

Well, a nandroid is a little different than Titanium Backup.
A nandroid backup is like a snapshot of your phone current setup. Like a game save.
It will put your phone back to exactly the way it was when you restore that backup.
Your apps/data/widgets/screens/screen layouts/etc.
Now I am willing to bet that Ocnbrze just ninja'd me because as I was typing this, a popup came up on my computer saying that he responded to this thread.
So, instead of me editing my post, here is goes:

I realize I'm late to the party, but I just received a reconditioned 3vo as an insurance replacement. The replacement has Android version 2.3.5, Baseband 2.15.00, Hboot 2.18 and has yet to be activated.

First question is - does the device need to be activated to complete the HTCdev unlock bootloader process?

On an unrelated note - is it common for the menu button to r lighter than the other buttons?

welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!
which phone do you have again? the htc evo 4g which is the forum your in.

or do you have the htc evo 3d? if that is the case you are better posting in that forum.

or do you have the htc evo v 4g which is the evo 3d for virgin?

the only thing you can get that will be helpful from this forum is how to unlock the bootloader via HTCdev site. after that any files you download from this guide will not work.

if you do not know where the forums for the above phones are please let me know i can post the links for you.

Welcome bibbin!
You are in the correct forums then
You do not have to be activated to unlock the bootloader, nor to go fully s-off if you desire. In fact, I just rooted another Evo that also was deactivated.
Just be aware, the process will wipe the phone, so save what you must

I'm back~! Just to clarify, in order to move all my apps to the SD card, I should have both the cm a2sd (that moves apps restored by Titanium Backup) AND the darktremors version (that allows me to move new apps/stuff that isn't restored by titanium backup, correct?)

no cm a2sd and darktremors are pretty much the same thing. it is just that darktremors you need to flash the srcipt while cm is cooked in. once you flash dt and then restore your apps from tb, the apps will move automatically.

you will need to read the op for the rom to determine if you need to flash dt or not. some like mikg have it cooked in so all you need to do is partition your card and the apps will automatically move to the card.

hope that helps.
