Default late to the game

Good evening guys...so I got this great new device today. Its supposed to be a flagship device called the Evo 4g! Its gonna be huge I think.

So I recently signed up for Freedompop and got this phone. My thought was I have a work phone. I can just use this as a "home" phone.

The phone came unlocked with S-ON (I did not have to do anything as far as I can tell when I powered it up) and it has software version 5.07.651.1 and hboot 2.18.0001

My goal is to flash a rom that has runs something newer than the 2.3.5 that the phone shipped with. One of the blog sites mentioned that you can put KK on the FreedomPop Evo so that sparked this little mission. I have looked at a few root guides but seem to run into dead ends with either dead links to the necessary files, or to issues when flashing files in recovery.

The latter seems to be happening more often now.

I have the following on the root of my sdcard:

zzzvr_superwipe
cm-11-20131217-unofficial.zip
cm-7.2.0-supersonic.zip
MikeG-v3.11-signed.zip

As far as recovery, i have just flashed the following:
PC36IMG_AmonRA-v2.3-hausmod_revA.zip


So I think I am stuck. With this setup (and even with the clockworkmod recovery 5.0.2.2 that I tried) When i try to flash one of the ZIP files listed above I get an (bad) install aborted message and cannot proceed.

Is there a preferred method to do this? Perhaps I am missing something? Thanks for any assistance if anyone is still out there.

Best,

Welcome to AF m_c_gusto

It appears, from what you posted, that your bootloader is unlocked.
Also, from what you posted, your recovery is the Amon RA?

Are you flashing the roms from recovery?
I know that the MikG rom is for the Evo 4g, but the other roms you list, are you sure they are for your device?

Are you leaving the rom file zipped?

Hiya and welcome to Android forums!

I've moved this into the Evo 4g root forum.

I'm not sure if it would be wise to flash a rom as all the roms you see now are sprint based.

However wait on someone more experienced with the Evo 4g and cross carriers to chime in.

You may need a more up to date recovery to start flashing files. Remember to make a backup before attempting to flash anything as well.

Cheers

I will check out that thread and thanks guys! to answer your questions, the cm-11 file i found was from a link in regards to putting cm on a freedom pop phone. the cm-7.2 i found on the cyanogen mod sight as a the last stable for the evo 4g.

I do think there is something to that the fact that i am on freedompop and there being issues with messaging.

I will read that thread.
