Default The "Fix everything by turning your phone into an Evo 3d" thread

Here it is...
This will document how to more or less turn your phone into a Sprint Evo 3D with all the best parts. The purpose of this is to reduce signal fluctuations, increase signal strength, and allow you to run almost any Virgin or Sprint rom, old or new with as few issues as possible. MMS, phone, everything works, exactly as it should.

So how good is it? It's a whole new phone compared to what it was, and that is without changing roms. The original phone was good, with a rom it was better. With these and a rom, it works like you expect a high end phone to work.

Please note that this is not entirely my own work, much of it was derived from the work of others, including Chad Goodman (of Anthrax Kernel fame), Krowley3, Jcfunk, Gamikzone, and Unknownforce. There were also many involved in testing and advice. I did a lot of the research, testing and compiled it all together as one, but I was far from alone in this.



What we will change here are:
ENG Hboot 1.04 - allows other roms and needed for the radio flash. Engineering hboot, more recovery options, less restrictions.
PRI 2.17.651 - fixes some fluctuations, increases radio strength. This will show up as 1.53_145 in about phone.
Radio 0.97.10.0530 - fixes some fluctuations, increases radio strength. (Updated, much better!)
PRL 60690 - Updates the list of towers you can connect to (Optional but highly recommended).
Note: You can change to any Hboot once you are done with the radio, and PRI flashing.


Prerequisits:
1. A good backup! DUH! I recommend using Titanium Backup or Mybackup Pro, as well as a Nandroid (recovery) backup.
2. A backup of your backup... Keeping a backup only on your phone is like backing up your computer to your computer. Worthless.
3. You need to be Root and S-off.

A note on cables...
The use of a USB 3.0 cable has been problematic. Cheap USB 2.0 cables have also created issues. Use the stock cable if you have it.

Warning!!!!!
1. As usual, I try my best to make things as foolproof as possible, but things happen, do this at your own risk.
2. Using the stock rom has been known to cause boot loops, and it is HIGHLY recommended that you install Harmonia or Midnight rom before you change the Hboot. Cm9, MIUI, etc. will not work as they are not Sense based and do not have a diagnostic mode. Midnight uses a newer Anthrax kernel and it's optimized for newer Hboots and may be causing issues, as such i have removed it from the prerequisits. Remember you can always switch to a different Hboot when finished and move to any rom you want.
3. It is highly advised that you backup, but this goes double if you are completely stock. EXPECT to lose everything.
4. If you are on a completely stock rom, when you swap the hboot, your phone will fail to boot. Reinstalling the stock rom or and whatever you were using (wipe dalvik and cache only) should fix it without losing data. However, if you were smart you made the proper backups and can use any rom.




Downloads: (All have been modded numerically to fake our hboot and work with our phones)
PRI - MD5 - 026b0d970b06fe9db88873e375ccbf74 (do not decompress this!)
Hboot - md5 - 99df68934deb03cfcec63d7b1b9cb97b (do not decompress this!)
Radio - md5 - 0ab6aeb4ca9421d5ea8e9ced722554bc (do not decompress this!)
PRL 60690 - md5 - 9dc62e1a8e0991d5bd925c8b5852fa1f (needs to be extracted)
QPST (only needed for PRL)
HTC diagnostic drivers - You should have them by the time you are s-off, but if not, they are here, includes step by step install.


Hboot, Radio and PRI install
We start with the Hboot, since it is needed for the radio.
NOTE/WARNING!!!!!!!!!!: Notice all three files have the EXACT same name.
You cannot use subfolders, you cannot rename them, you cannot do anything except have one of these files on your sdcard at a time. Do not think you are smart by trying to find a way around this, you can't. For the hard headed, this means copy ONE FILE, flash it, then go back and copy the next file and flash it. ONE AT A TIME.

1. Copy the Hboot PG86IMG.zip to your sdcard (the root of it). Do not decompress it, copy it as is.
You can change to any Hboot once you are done. Some roms prefer newer, some prefer older. It will not effect anything else.

2 If you are in Android, you need to reboot into Bootloader, then select Bootloader. If your phone is turned off, hold vol down, and power and it will go straight into Bootloader.

3. Boot to your homescreen.

4. Using the same procedure, do the same as above for the radio and PRI. Order shouldn't matter. Again, one file at a time.

Don't freak out if after you do these, that your phone boots up, then restarts once or twice. It needs a reboot or two to stabilize.


PRL (optional) is a bit more in depth.
This seems to be a pain in the neck for most, however posting the diag drivers above may help. If you can't get it, don't stress as this is optional and usually has the least effect of all of these.

1. Disable debugging on your device (settings, developer options) and connect it to your computer

2. Install QPST

3. Open "QPST Configuration" in the "QPST" folder under Programs

4. Dial ##3424#

5. Click on the “Ports” tab and “Add a new port”, select it based on what your phone connected as. You should find it easily enough.

6. In the top menu, select “Start Clients” and open Service Programming.

7. Select your device

8. Select "Read from Phone". I will ask for your MSL code. If you don't have it, search the Play Store for MSL Reader, it should be the first result. It will tell you your MSL).

9. Go to the "Roam" tab

10. Click Browse and find your PRL file (you will need to unzip it).

11. Select Write to phone, once it reboots, you are are done. Sometimes this generates an error as it finishes, ignore it, it still worked (you can verify in "about phone".


Enjoy your "new" phone.



If you haven't already, install a new rom, and really enjoy what your phone can do.

I recommend Harmonia, but then, I am a little biased.




Changes:
6Nov12
Radio link fixed
28Oct12
Changed info regarding Midnight and cables.
27 Oct12
Added diag drivers and comment about Hboot.
26Aug12
Replaced 2 lines and updated radio
Radio 1.13.652 - fixes some fluctuations, increases radio strength.
Radio - md5 - 58a1de80fc137bf437c1edd5f447a2ac (do not decompress this!)

Common Questions

Will this work with _____ rom.
It needs to be based on Sense in order to make these changes. CM, MIUI, AOKP, etc.. will NOT work. However, once completed, you are free to flash any of those.

Does MMS work?
Everything works, but much better.

What radio, pri, etc, is this?
See the first post, it's included.

Can I go back?
Yes, with the modified Hboot, flashing back is simple, but honestly, I don't know why you would want to, this si just such a major improvement. The only reason i would go back, is if I was selling, at which point, I would flash the RUU and sell it bone stock.

It is 60690, that was a typo.
As for the link, it works fine when I click on it.

All this can be undone by flashing the RUU right? And will this have any effect on a possible future update for the Evo V?

Edit: After getting the new PRL what will the "Update PRL" option in settings do? Will it update to Virgin PRLs or Sprint ones?

You are all welcome.
It really makes a difference, it cut my drops by 75% or more.

You really should be on Sense to do this, I'll add it to the OP.

Going back to the RUU should work, if not, Krowley or I can make a patch to revert easy enough, you just change a number in the patch in a hex editor to one higher. However, having the ENG Hboot, you can probably flash back and forth much easier now if you ever needed to.

RUU's do tend to just overwrite EVERYTHING, it's kind of like nuking an ant hi'l.

We don't know what the PRL updater will do. It may do nothing, or it could update with Virgin or Sprint. Until one comes out, we won't know. I;m not worried about it, it's easy enough to do manually.

Yes

Ignore the error, it worked.

Copy one file to your sdcard, boot into bootloader, let it flash, then the next, then the next. Then move on to the PRL section.

Most of it is so simple you think you missed something.

Not sure where you expect it to progress to, you already have the best parts you can use, at least until some new parts come out.

Evo V development is now equal to Evo 3d, which is understandable since we stole all of their stuff.

Considering 3 of them have the same name... that would be a problem, yes.

Oh... Don't decompress the radio, hboot or PRI, they need to be copied exactly as they are and done one at a time.

I renamed all of the files with what they are as shown in the picture and if I want to flash one of them, I'll copy them from my downloads folder to the root and rename them back to PG86IMG.zip

Can I just flash any sprint radio? or does it need to be modified for our phone? Are these the ones that everyone was talkin about in the other thread? [RADIO] HTC Evo 3D (CDMA) Radios [PG86IMG.zip] (Updated: 31 July 2012) - xda-developers

Just make sure, when you put the file on your card, rename the file back to PG86IMG.zip before you go to bootloader, or it won't recognized the file.

File names MUST remain exactly as they are and need to be handled one at a time on the sdcard. There is no shortcuts to be taken here. Bootloader is VERY specific and will only load files with that name and in that location.

And yes, you need the modded files, at least until you have the Hboot. Once you have that, you can flash almost anything, I think.

Yes, it was, just to make it flash on the original Hboot. All except the PRL were modded to work on the original Hboot.

Here's what I don't understand. If the Evo 3D radio is really stronger/better than the one that came stock on the V, and it works fine in our phones... why in the world did they nerf our radio? It doesn't make sense to me.

So if you downgraded your hboot.. Reflash the stock hboot to install the zips and then downgrade again?

I stuck the thread. I can see the worth of using the Evo 3D's radios and HBOOT.

No need. You can just skip the hboot flash and go ahead and flash the radio/PRI.

So I did the s-off trick successfully and am now trying this on odex stock rom. Soon as I got into bootloader to install the hboot file I get prompted to update....press power button.....then the phone went into bootloop. Well what the crap I then did the radio and pri file successfully as well. Seems I can get into bootloader and twrp recovery but the boot loop continues. Wipe install odex and still same results. Not panicking but would anybody care to help me. thanks



EDIT: NVM after odex would'nt work I tried midnight rom and it seems to be starting up fine.

Finally a reason to go s-off, tho i must admit I am slightly daunted by doing so.
Therefore a few Question I hope you all can help me with.

Quote:
"Prerequisits:
You need to be Root and S-off.
You should be on a stock-based Sense rom for the PRL change "
I am currently running Harmonia ( ty LeslieAnn )
Q 1 :
Do I need to flash jmz shooter to do this then re-install Harmonia

Q2 : Regarding s-off, Do you know if REvolutionary will s-off this phone?

Quote:
Revolutionary will permanently unlock NAND write protection by default on the following phones:

HTC Sensation (pyramid)
HTC Evo 3D (shooter)
HTC EVO 3D GSM (shooteru)
I am assuming the EVO V is the CDMA (shooter) ?
Other wise I'll get my taped paperclip ready to go *heavysigh*
Thank You

I don't believe REvolutionary will work, considering our hboot is 1.57. REvolutionary only supports hboot 1.4, I think.

A1. you need to be on the stock rom, rooted, and unlocked
A2. you will have to do the wire trick ( HTC Evo 3D (shooter) 1.30.0000 and 1.40.0000) <<-supported hboots by revolutionary..by the way what is your hboot?

I suggest you find an old charging cord and peel off the ends with a nail clipper to expose the wire, much better then a paper clip and worked like a charm for me
