Post The "Fix everything" thread for the Virgin Mobile HTC EVO™ V 4G ( aka 3D )

Summary
With the new ROMS out there, that is modern Midnight ROM and HTCCM10 you need a phone that can boot both Android 4.0 ( the phone's stock version ) and modern Cyanogenmod CM10 and some day CM10.1 based ROMS. This requires the correct hboot of 1.04 ENG or 1.50. Then there is the matter of "do I have the latest phone firmware?" What about recovery? I want to make nDroid backups etc. So instead of spending your day flashing 2,4, 10 files we made one file that contains the correct hboot, the latest firmware with the newest radio files and also the latest recovery program(s). So one file to align your phone to allow it to run the best ROMs!

Warnings
  1. You must be S-OFF to do this! If you don't know what that is, stop and find out and come back when you do
  2. Not responsible for you breaking your phone, you need to know what you are doing and take responsiblity!
  3. There is absolutly NO technical support, intellegent questions get intellegent answers ONLY!
  4. This is NOT a RUU replacement ( if you don't know what RUU is STOP and go no further! ) You need a working phone that get at least to the boot loader ( thus it maybe able to recover your phone from there )
  5. PLEASE NOTE: Phone will NOT WORK after flashing these file! Yes you heard me, now that I have your annotation: do not forget to re-format your cache ( along with delvik ) after the flash. This is because when you flash a hboot that mount point is removed!

What is this good for?
  • After you recover from installing a RUU and want to bring your phone back to where it was ( recover to your last nDroid backup ). This one file will update the firmware to where it needs to be.
  • You want to bring your phone into alignment that is so that the tested ROMs will work best. You want your phone to be at the latest and best of everything, and you want to do it in ONE step!

Tested ROMs
ROMs this was tested with and are known to work ( please message me if you are confident it works with a ROM not listed, I will give you credit )
  • Midnight 148 to current ( this is a ICS 4.0 Stock ROM with and without Sense )
  • Midnight J ( all ) this is a CM10 JB 4.1.2 ROM a mix of the best that's avable.
  • HTCCM10 ( all ) this is a CM10 JB 4.1.2 ROM based on Pure Code builds.

Why there are two files?
The only difference is the recovery.img file used. This is the program that runs when you go to recovery. I have added 4ext for those people using that and twrp for those using it. Pick the recovery you like.

How to install a PG86IMG.zip
  1. Just take one of the two files listed. place on your sd card in the root directory. Do not decompress it, just re-name it to "PG86IMG.zip" I recommend using a separate 2gb card. You will need to remove the file just after install, thus swapping cards is the easy way to accomplish this.
  2. Reboot phone to boot-loader. By now you know how to do this, but to make sure you know what I mean, pull battery and replace, next hold volume down then power at the same time. You should then see the white boot loader screen with ascii text. it should scan the file and ask if you what to install if it does not you are NOT s-off go fix that!
  3. It will install one by one, let it, it takes time, don't panic. When done it will ask to reboot, you will let it, but pull the battery AS soon as you see the white HTC logo!
  4. Now making sure you removed the PG86IMG.zip file again reboot in to the boot loader. This time go to "recovery". If this does not work don't panic During testing on one occasion I needed to pull the battery a second time. Once in recovery ( either version ) you will see messages about unable to mount cache, using the program clear cache and also dalvik cache. Once done reboot the phone to the ROM.
  5. If all when well you will boot as Android boots it will re-build the Android dalvik cache. This is a sign that the phone gods are smiling down on you and your done! Enjoy your new up-to-date phone!

Command line version for the hard core people out there!
Yes this file can be installed from a PC from the command line just like this!

Dedication
This work is dedicated to the hard work of g60madman and xthedakmanx for there ineradicable ROMs! There work has inspired me to attempt this. Hope it helps guys, keep up the awesome work!

Thanks
Special thanks to ramjet73 for his assistance and guidance on this project! He is the man behind all the hboot voodoo, that is he helped me understand how things are put together.

Maker suggestions
That is this both zip files were designed to allow you to pull out and put in what img files you want for your phone setup! That is if a new version of 4ext is out, remove the recovery.img file and put in the new one. Create a file with just what you need, removing the hboot img file will allow you to not need to format the cache. Have fun and stay safe but most of all SHARE what you find with others as they have shared with you!

Sources I used
giving credit where credit is due:
Radios and firmware updates were from Radios, Hboot & Firmware - All Downloads
Hboot sources were from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1817513
4ext was from there site ( please support them financially ) finacally 4EXT Development
TWRP is from TeamWin Projects - TWRP 2.4 - HTC Evo 3D (CDMA) | TeamWin

Seems I've gotten myself into a bootloop..wiping cache/dalvik didn't help. Before this I was running MidnightRom Senseless 1.0.9. According to bootloader I've got 1.50.5050 hboot onto my phone. Could the version of my ROM (Not the latest) be the source of the loops? I'm pondering on just wiping and installing Midnight J, but I wanted to ask someone for their input before trying anything further.

Not sure if that ROM requires hboot 1.57 you can install just that part, please see this thread:

Look for ramjet73's "pick your boot loader"

Pick only one file you don't need both please see which recovery you want.
Probably will not work with that ROM since it requires the newer hboot 1.57
Suggestion is to remove the hboot file from the zip first so it does not put you in a boot loop.
It will then flash the recovery, radios and firmware.

Hi Joe , so after flashing this zip( awesome job by the way ) I can flash the MidnightRom: Jellybean 1.0.6 1/21/2013 rom .

I'm coming from the Motorola Triumph so I'm use to a far easer route .

What I'm thinking is .

1.Activate phone on stock .
2. Do all the needed steps to get to S-OFF( with Twrp )
3. Flash this fix everything zip .
4. Whipe the cache ,
4. Flash MidnightRom
5. Flash GAPPS .
6. Enjoy a far better phone

I think that's exactly what joe_blow intended. His all-in-one zip file will update all your firmware including a custom hboot and recovery after gaining S-OFF so you can go straight to flashing ROM's without doing the original "fix everything" thread. Your steps are exactly what he had in mind for new Evo V 4G users, and he has provided the option for TWRP2 (touch) or 4EXT recovery.

Thank you ramjet73 . I'm going to buy my Evo V next month . The crap VM forces on you( uninstallable apps , buggy OS) makes it worth it to install a custom rom .

The only thing is I'm running Ubuntu(actually I have all 3 OS's at my house, but I don't want to install the whole android SDK on my 32Bit Windows 7 install ) so some of the steps are going to be a bit harder to follow , but I'm game !

Well you're in luck because you can root and do the JuopunutBear wire trick to get S-OFF using Linux. I have a post here that elaborates a little bit in my rooting and S-OFF guide for Windows users on XDA. You won't need to flash the RUU if you root and gain S-OFF right after getting the phone since it will still have the stock ROM. And if you decide to do it on Windows I have an all-in-one download in that guide that contains all the files you need.

Good luck with your Evo V 4G!

Then there are a couple choices for what the problem is. The file isn't named exactly right: PG86IMG.zip Make sure it's named PG86IMG and the file extension is .zip
Sometimes people name the file PG86IMG.zip which ends up being this:
PG86IMG.zip.zip

The other possible problem is that it isn't on the root of the sd card. It has to be on the root (not in any folders).

Are you booting into the bootloader with volume down +power, or using command prompt and typing adb reboot bootloader? If you are using command prompt, it actually puts you into fastboot rather than the bootloader.

PG86IMG.zip.zip

The other possible problem is that it isn't on the root of the sd card. It has to be on the root (not in any folders).

Are you booting into the bootloader with volume down +power, or using command prompt and typing adb reboot bootloader? If you are using command prompt, it actually puts you into fastboot rather than the bootloader.
renamed the file and that made it work, followed the instructions and now im stuck in a bootloop

The all-in-one file installs an hboot that is compatible with the GB and AOSP ROM's and most of the ICS Sense based ROM's, but not with the stock ROM. You either need to flash a custom ROM at this point, or if you want to stay on the stock ROM re-flash the JBear 1.57.5757 hoot.

HBOOT and radio are two entirely different things.

Well changing the hboot won't change the radio but 1.09.00.0706 is the most current radio.

Yes, that's correct.

The all-in-one zip files contain the current version of a custom recovery (4EXT or TWRP2), the JBear 1.50.5050 hboot and all the current VM firmware, which should bring your firmware level (baseband version) to 1.09.00.0706.

If I already have 4EXT installed, and I took the OTA update from VM in early January, does the zip only give me 1.50 HBOOT? Or is there anything different about the radios in the zip file compared to my radios. If there is a difference, is it a lateral difference, or is one better than the other?

What's the best thread to follow if all I want is the 1.50 HBOOT?

If all you want is hboot 1.5 you can get it here Radios, Hboot & Firmware - All Downloads

Unless you are talking about the jpbear hboot, then I think ramjet73 has a link to that in a post on xda. I'll let him post it cause I don't have time to find it right now.

I want the jBear hboot 1.50.5050 mentioned in the OP. But more importantly, I want someone to tell me about the updates. Do I already have those updates, do those updates differ in anyway from the ones I got OTA? And is there anything better offered by going the route of the OP instead of keeping what I have.

I'm one of those "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" types. Since I am already running 4EXT and I already have an OTA from VM that seems to be the latest and greatest, I'd rather avoid flashing stuff that I don't need to.

Since you have 4EXT and the latest firmware there's no need to flash them again and you can get just the hboot from here.

Thanks for the link. I realized that I've already downloaded those and asked you to post the md5 sums for those
I can't keep track of everything lol.
I didn't see a 1.50 jbear for ICS, just GB. Does such a creature exist?

1.5 is just a gingerbread hboot. Ics is 1.58 or 1.57 for the evo v.
Jpbear 1.50.50.50 is a patched hboot built from 1.50.00.00. According to what I've heard though, the patched hboot is compatible with most any rom, gb, ics and jb.
I'm sure ramjet73 can explain this in far more detail than I can.

That's correct.

The 1.50 hboot is from the latest Sprint GB build (2.17.651.5) and is the closest to the ICS stock bootloaders (1.57 and 1.58) that will flash and boot the GB and AOSP based ROM's. It doesn't work with the ICS stock ROM's, Cool ICS and Viper3D at r284 and below.

As brian706 said the JBear 1.50.5050 version is patched by unlimited.io to support the extended fastboot commands like "flash" and "boot" so you don't need to unlock the bootloader to run them.

When you lump the ROMs together as "ICS stock ROM's" are you referring to Midnight (sense), Harmonia, Mobster, Unlocked Potential, JMZ...etc?

So if I want a set-it-and-forget-it HBOOT that can boot everything, am I SOL, or is that what ENG 1.04 is used for?

ICS stock ROM's are the ones that ship with the Evo 3D/V, and repackaged versions like jmz's stock ROM's, and will only boot with 1.57/1.58 hboots or the JBear equivalents.

There is no universal hboot that will boot all ROM's but the JBear 1.50.5050 and other versions below 1.57, including ENG 1.04, will boot pretty much everything except the stock ROM's since most developers have modified their custom ROM's to work with those hboots.

I use ramjet's hboot 1.50 edit, and since i flashed it, i havent had to change. AOSP/KP, CM, Sense 3.6, 4 4.1, etc. Its your best bet and compatible with newer TWRP recoveries also

Edit: that does depend on the ROM also as some are not configured to work on older hboots, but most are

I didn't see you single out Mobster Rom HD. Can that run on 1.50 as well as 1.57? That's probably my most important thing since I've designated Mobster HD as my daily driver. I would not want to flash a new HBOOT everytime I decided that I needed to go back to it.

EDIT:

When flashing an HBOOT, is the juopunut bear method easier? It seems like there's no need to swap to the second SD card during the process.

To flash the JuopunutBear HBOOTs:
  1. Put your phone in fastboot mode
  2. Type the following cmds into cmd prompt (windows) or terminal (linux):
    • fastboot erase cache
    • fastboot oem rebootRUU
    • fastboot flash zip jb_hboot.zip
    • fastboot reboot

The Mobster ROM's should flash and boot fine with the JBear 1.50.5050 hboot if they work with the ENG 1.04 version. I haven't used them since I have the Evo 3D.

I prefer the fastboot method and have it included as an option in my instructions for flashing a bootloader when S-OFF.

This worked flawlessly for me, I am now on JBear 1.50. Anyone else wanting to do this needs to make sure you're in the c:\SDK-Tools folder in cmd prompt before typing those commands.

Also, can you confirm that anytime I see anyone say "turn your evo v into an evo 3d", do I sufficiently fulfill that requirement now?

Default Partition Error

Running this I got a "failed repartition" error and it closed on me. I checked the crc checksum and my file is good. I am S-OFF running 1.04 ENG. The only reason I ran this is because I wasn't sure I was on the latest Sprint firmware. I don't know where to check that firmware level.

I have been running Mob's hd-lite rom and more recently G60's CM10. I'm probably good to go into CM10.1 as-is but wanted to tick the box on the firmware revision beforehand. Any suggestions short of backing up the SD card and repartitioning? Running 4EXT atm. Will probably use the "wipe all partitions except sdcard" and try installing "Wild for the Night" which is where I am trying to get to.... just don't like getting that partition error, may come back to bite later. Thanks.

Are you flashing it in recovery or from the bootloader? The file needs to be renamed to PG86IMG.zip and flashed with the bootloader.

I've never seen that message before but it sounds like more a recovery rather than bootloader error.

From the bootloader. Solved: I just used 4EXT to "format all partitions except sd" and it was successful. After that, I flashed the same PG86IMG.zip file and it worked just fine. Feel pretty good about fixing that partition error. Now off to get a taste of the "wild". Thanks for your response.

Thanks for this,

Had an issue on the first attempt. Broke out my 2gb never used SD card that came with my OG Triumph, renamed the file and moved it to the SD Card and checked the MD5 via Terminal after the transfer. Put the card in and booted into the Bootloader. Said yes when asked to update but then a few seconds later received a message that the update had failed and to hit the power button to reboot, Something about a partition, think it was on number 5, probably should have written it down in hindsight but anyways followed the rest of the process and after rebooting pulled the battery on the HTC logo screen swapped out the SD card and again booted into the bootloader. Noticed I was now on HBOOT 1.50 as apposed to the previous 1.04 I was on beforehand but the radio had been unchanged. Selected recovery, wiped the caches and rebooted without issue. Everything worked fine after so I decided to give it another go so powered off and again put back in the 2gb SD card and booted into the bootloader, said yes to the update and everything went as expected from there on. Not sure what had gotten flubed during the first attempt but all was good in da hood on the second go around using the same card with the same file. Anyhow just figured I would share in case anyone else has the same experience.

Hi, i flashed this file with the intention of installing Midnight Rom CM. My phone is now stuck in a bootloop. I tried going back to 1.57 hboot and then restoring one of my backups to no avail. i've formatted everything several times, reinstalled this file several times, and i cannot seem to get out of this. what can i do to fix this?

Is there a way to check to see if I already have all the things that this zip would provide? I am a late comer to this phone, so I was able to get the OTA in January that fixed all the radio crap. I tend to ignore all threads that have anything to do with turning your EvoV into an Evo3d...as I figured most of that applies to the people who bought the phone in 2012. Since this thread is relatively recent, I wonder if there's anything that I may not have in order.

I am on Jbear 1.50 Hboot and this is the info from my settings:

Baseband Version: 1.09.00.0706
Build Number: 2.89.651.2 CL409645 release-keys
PRI Version: 1.53_144
PRL Version: 61009

Based on this, do I meet the "joe_blow criteria"?

You already have all the stuff that joe_blow's all-in-one file includes.

Starting with stock or flashing the RUU, then taking the OTA, HTC unlocking and getting JBear S-OFF will get you everything included in the all-in-one file except a custom recovery and alternate hboot to Jbear 1.57.5757 if you need one.

OK, thanks!
Moving forward, I'll ignore any requirements that mention joe_blow or Leslie Ann

Wanted to leave a report of a (potential) error. I have all the requirements and was able to completely flash the PG86IMG.zip, HOWEVER on the first try bootloader successfully flashed [1] ADSP, then skipped to [5] SBL1 and failed with a "Fail-PU" error. Tried to google that but didn't come up with much. I think I've seen this once before while trying to flash a PG86IMG.zip, a second try always works (as did for this PG86IMG.zip). Can anyone enlighten me on what exactly causes this error and what it means? TIA!

However the cheese has been moved and there is a second OTA the effects of which are not completely known at this time.
