Default Evo Shift Gingerbread Root/hboot downgrade

UPDATE: You can now downgrade your hboot and use the old froyo root method.

Hboot information and downgrading - xda-developers

The steps include

1. Temp root using Fr3vo
2. Exploit the hboot with the misc.img
3. RUU back to froyo
4. Root using the Froyo method

EDIT: This method is primarily for 2.3.3.. If you are running 2.3.4 check this thread Root and downgrade for Android 2.3.4 {Script included - ShiftySonofA script dl added) - xda-developers

Also here's a "how to" for rooting.. [VIDEO GUIDE] FULL S-OFF ROOT for Evo SHIFT. Froyo (2.2) + Gingerbread (2.3.3+2.3.4) - xda-developers *The method mentioned for 2.3.4 will void your warranty* I would suggest the above script..

Good luck

hay i would have posted this in the xda fourm but it wont let me because i am a new user.

i had success up till the bootloader. when my evo shift is temp rooted the bootloader doesnt work. if i try the vol down+pwr option nothing happens. it boots normally. if i try adb reboot recovery then it reboots with the error (explanation in triangle thing). then when my device reboots normally i loose temroot but i can boot in recovery. but when i go to fastboot>>>bootloader it says that it is loading the pg06img.zip but there is no image. can you help me out? if you could also get this in the xda downgrade thread that would be extreamly helpful too

edit:scratch that! downgrade working. i have no clue why hboot failed but ruu worked like a charm!

Agreed, can someone post a working link to the misc.img file, he already added a new link for the pg06IMG.

upon reading the thread there's a note saying that he used the misc.img file from the htc thunderbolt. i found and tested the misc.img found inside the exploits.zip and i'm currently running 2.2. here's the link:

Really just from reading it the hardest part is getting temp root. Once you have that it should be smooth sailing. After you get temp root just put the misc.img and the PG06100.zip on the Root of you sd, then just type the command Scary posted while in adb shell or in terminal emulator. Once you've done that boot into bootloader and it will automatically recognize the PG06100.zip and ask you if you want to update. That will downgrade your bootloader and allow you to follow the froyo root method. One thing to note, sometimes bootloader won't recognize the zip unless you sd card is formatted to fat32. So it may be a good idea to go ahead and reformat your card, just make sure you make a backup of your card on your pc cause formatting it will erase the cards contents.

Btw, agrabren is working with the Shift to make it rootable through revolutionary.

Yeah I think the terminology discourages me even to try first off then after re reading several 100 times It starts to make since, sooooooo since I'm already temp rooted all I would need to do is move the misc.img and PG06100.zip file to my sd card? Then after that use the old root method?

Once you put them on the root of your sd card you'll need to follow this step

Basically just run that cmd through adb shell or through the terminal emulator
application. Then you'll boot into hboot and it should recognize the PG06100.zip (check my other post if it does not) that is the ruu which brings you back to froyo with the old bootloader... Then you ready to move on to rooting.

PM me over at xda (crump84) if you have any other questions. I say over there because I get pm's pushed to my phone from the XDA App.

Cool Close but yet so far Help Me Guys!

Ok I've done this before PLENTY of times with this method trust me crump knows lol. Any way I'm trying to down grade back to froyo using the method in this link Hboot information and downgrading - xda-developers Everything was ok till i figured out I had to format my sd card to fat32. So after I did that I placed fre3vo back to the root of my phone and continued to "temp" root the way I have before with the method Stuke00 has here: EVO Shift Temp Root for 2.3.3 and HBoot Downgrade - xda-developers
All goes well like I remembered untill i get to the step where I put in the eight F's In the cmd window it says scanning region alot of times down the screen then it gives me the $ prompt where I proceed to: adb push Superuser3-beta1.apk /data/app/ Then it tells me adb permission denied. I re booted my phone and tried again resulting in the same outcome. Somebody PLEASE help me out. I'm so close yet so far I've got loads of help from crump but he instructed me that temp root is kinda a grey area so I'm reaching out here for additional help. Thanks in advance because I know somebody got my back

Did you read post # 9 in this thread? format your sd to FAT32 and it should help. Just remember to back it up to the PC first.

I just moved this thread over here as it pertains to the downgrade for root.

New threads are great, but I think your question is answered above.

i know you formatted one of your sd cards to fat32, have you tried a different card. I know Scary mentioned that his 16gb card wasn't detected by hboot even after formatted. I think that's probably the issue as far as the PG06img.zip not being recognized.

hi guys,
I would like to flash my evo 2.3.3 4g shift but i am not really sure if i can.
I got hboot 0.98.001. So, I looked on revolutionary and they ask if the hboot is 2.15 or 2.16. So, do i need to upgrade hboot. I hope there is a perm root soon for noobs. thanks in advance.

Default Downgrading

First of all, when you downgrade be sure get the sdk kit. Then be sure to download the files as article says, NOW here is where I had many unsuccessful attempts.
When you place the downloaded files in the adb file, you are actually placing them in the root directory of platform tools. as sdk kit has a few folders labeled platform tools i dug thru all the folders and placed a copy in each folder.
I could not for the life of me get emulator to work, so I had to abd push thru the computer, I as well tried evilnulls method for both temp and erm on my sons Phone, neither worked.

O.k after you get file placed in the folder(s), as was my case, you call up command prompt.
From there you need to look see exactly what directly you have sdk installed in, as mine was in root drive of windows, I had to use c:/android yada yada to call up the command for sdk.
Getting past that it sailed right along. Though will say I formatted card with phone, then dropped my file in. Used the stock card came with phone. There was my other hang up. The phone would not for the life of a crack baby just born, find the darn img till I let it format, which to be sure it was fresh I formatted a total of 4 times.

At the final end, I will say, was not a solid 2 days, as when it ticked me off, I walked away and got a beer. On second day, I had so much beer, I really didnt care if I toasted the phone or not, as it was insured, and free first time around.

Also I used the automated method for root on 2.2, which I watched a utube video on and it pointed a link to xda and the dev there. Not at home near lappy at moment or would share a few links, but google is a friend.

One last note, I turned fast boot off, it was as well causing issues, I had in total, near 65 attempts at temp root on my evo, on my sons, I will say, sailed right thru it, after all i learned first time around.

Default downgrade

LISTEN Up
I know nothing on linux, really have no command prompt knowledge, and I done it so.............


If command listed per guide didnt match, I retyped everything. till it matched... then proceeded. this said it did take a few attempts, dont be scared, as long as screen stays white and reads htc. Even on 4-5 rebootd unsuccessful phone is not fubared. just repeat steps. Trust me been there
done that.

I have little command prompt knowldge, but as long as phone command prompt was in sdk platform, it worked.

Also to date 4 days I have tried 18 roms related to kernel and ron, have run cyangen and a few others. This said I tend to lay close to sense 3.0, yet enjoy works of others

Rooted I seen alot more fations others have not, though what made me choose an android is well sense (gingerbread roms). I would love mui and and a few others if.................... vvm worked, no power light, no working keyboard light, my kb appearing small on photos.

See, my easy exe rooting method is the best, no linux knowledge needed, no sdk needed, just click and go!

We have found the next exploit for the next update. We are keeping it hush hush till the ICS buzz settles. You should expect the Dec/Jan Update for the shift to have an ICS kernel. Expect it!

We ARE watching, and we ARE waiting -
GB source with Apache code will be released Nov 1st I'll see what i can do about getting it to Agrabren and then everyone else.

I simply cannot get temp root access. I have downloaded the Android-Bullet batch file, and when I run it, everything seems to be fine. It says successful, but when I do a root check, it says I don't have root access. I have also done the Re-Rooter, with the same results. I have done this over 10 times. Any other things I can try?

I have visited this page a ton of times, and have followed these instructions to a tee. Everything says successful, and it appears that all is good. But when I run Root Check after performing these steps exactly, I am told "Sorry, but you don't have root access on your phone". Don't know what else to try!

I used one-click root after the downgrade. That's the only one I could get to work.

Just to confirm
If you're stuck with 2.3.3, is this downgrade currently the best option to root at the moment? It sounds like there are people who are working on a simple root program, but that it is generally not available yet.
I'm not intimidated by how complicated the process is, but I'd rather not jump into something that looks like it could be a real time consuming pain, if there's an easy solution that's likely to pop up.
Think it's worth it to wait for a couple weeks or months til somebody makes a one-click that works with the new hboot in 2.3.3?
*hopeful* (or did somebody already make one, and I just haven't found it on this forum yet?)

Personally I don't think it's worth the wait for someone to maybe find a one-click root. The downgrade/root is pretty easy overall, and the performance improvements are well worth the time it takes. I say go for it.
