Is there not a choice in the settings menu instead of having to go thru the bootloader?

Should be but either will work. You might see if a moderator will move this over to the evo shift forum

Wonder how many shift users are trying to use that guide? Better yet, does it work on the shift?

Who knows lol
At the moment, unrevoked is testing out the Shift right now. I am tempted to buy the shift just to have it because it's an EVO rofl. Each time HTC releases a device, unrevoked goes at it. lol

This is what I have to do to the phone almost every other day when that loading screen start coming up. It's gotten to point where if I go into the menu and go to personalize, the loading screen comes up and it kicks me back out to the home screen. Not enjoying this phone at all at the moment.

How long have you had your phone?

If it's within 30 days, get it replaced. If longer, call *2 then select option at top to contact Sprint.

Lemons happen, sorry to hear you're having trouble.

Do you have to be rooted for this to work? I can't seem to get it working.
Edit: never mind i got it to work, you have to take the battery out first.
