    I was following the rooting guide for my Evo. I got to the reboot after flashing unrevoked-forever.zip

    After that I had to force it to go to the bootloader with the VOL-DN/Power buttons. When I try to flash the new PC36IMG.zip it says

    Can't open PC36IMG.zip (bad)....

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    Just posting an update... I'm still having problems.. even switched to wife's laptop with a fresh download and copied it over and getting the same error.... Should I go for an RUU? Or is it safe to go ahead with a custom ROM? I had originally been planning to do one of Vaeleks roms in the first place....

    Im not sure why it's not recognizing the pc36img. Just to make sure you do have it named correct? "pc36img" .zip. Make sure its not named pc36img.zip.zip. Trust me you would be surprised how often that happens. Im guilty of it lol. Anyways if none of that works then I would run the RUU and start fresh!

    So after looking over the guide for the 100th time it just hit me. The guide doesn't say anything about going into the custom recovery after flashing unrevoked. After the restart it was loading pc36img.zip no problem but then I was selecting no to update and no to reboot and trying to flash it in the custom recovery menu. I believe this was the cause for the error everytime... Feel really dumb now but all is well...

    Thanks for your replies though!!!
