How To: ClockworkMod Recovery VM Evo V 4G

Placeholder.

I am working on confirming that this will work installing ClockWorkMod Recovery on Virgin Mobile Evo V 4G phones.

If this works it looks much easier than the other method we have so far. Plus coming from the Triumph I am pretty comfortable with CWM now!

Revolutionary won't work with HBOOT 1.57. Alpharev and Unrevoked submitted their security exploit to HTC when they found it for the HTC Evo 3D and it was patched for the HBOOT 1.50 update. And after that Alpharev and Unrevoked determined that HTC dev's method was 'good enough' and they wouldn't look for a new S-OFF exploit. Unless that has changed, Revolutionary won't be able to crack HBOOT 1.50 for the Evo 3D, and by extension, HBOOT 1.57 for the Evo V.

You'll have to use HTC dev, unfortunately. But you can flash CWM instead of TWRP or any other recovery. But I do recommend 4EXTRecovery. Once you try it, you'll forget CWM existed.

Interesting, especially if it works. I hope it does, because HTC dev is not ideal.

DO NOT TRY THAT UNIVERSAL TOOL. It is not meant for eMMC devices. Only for MTD devices.

Also, the ONLY 2 options to unlock is htc unlock or s-off via unlimited.io. Revolutionary will not work.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DOWNGRADE either........

Yes if you have a compatible recovery. I would suggest just using ext4 as it has smartflash for s-on devices

Can you switch from CWM to TWRP? I tried through flashboot and it said TWRP couldn't be loaded.

Edit: nvm, I bought 4EXT. My God that recovery is so much easier/faster. I don't mind spending money on services like that and supporting the devs behind it.

ok confirmed: clockworkmod recovery for the evo 3d does not work on our phone. It just reboots you back into android. However, clockworkmod *touch* recovery for the evo 3d does for our phone. I am currently testing its functionality first by backing up (of course). So far so good... I'll try mounting usb next.

edit: however, I did get the following


E:Bad boot message
"TIME"

not sure what that means..

edit: mount usb does not work, "E:Unable to open ums file (no such file or directory)" or something along those lines.. (typed that after reboot). I'm gonna stick with TWRP for now.
