    It took me about a week to get it all roote and flashed but i got it done. Thank you so much for posting this info. My only question is can I upgrade the ROM without loosing the flash? I did the downgrade of the rom like in the guide said it would be easier and it definetly was. The main reason i want to upgrade to a different ROm is to improve my battery life as right now it only last like 3 hours and see it drain before my eyes. I even bought a new battery and calibrated it with no success.

    I wish I had a 3d :D I actually almost bought one off ebay the price was right but they would not send pics
    You can change roms, radios and everything the nv items, that and the nam and phone numbers are all safe

    yea battery life sucks ass. just get the cheap china extended battery knock offs and it will boost your time bye 6 to 8 hours. as for roms and updates. i risked updating my prl and radios. every thing went fine. also always have a back up in clockwork. save your self a headache

    Just tried to get one working, problem is the only way to get the nv items does not give them in txt form and trying to put them on the evo without being in txt form is not working.

    I would say it will take more information.:(

    First you need to know your esn, and meid if you have not done so already use QXDM and put in the password it tells you, then type in requestnvitemsread meid, and requestnvitemsread esn
    once you have those numbers, write them down so you can refer back to them multiple times, you will then see which numbers you will 0 out.

    In your case listed I am guessing you will only do the 75 A8 F9 1E. that will probably be your esn. Well technically pesn you will see it listed as 1EF9A875 when you do your request esn.

    First read, read and then read again because even after you read it you will still run into issues.
    Second you will be downgrading your baseband it has the info in the guide.
    You will need to switch your service to the cdma side, use the incognito for the best experience, as the guide points out.

    and good luck

    Does anyone have the mem scan locations for EVO 3D
    Radio or do i need to downgrade ?

    Thank you

    NOOOOOOO do not even think of such a thing. that is a great way to brick your phone if you try an evo radio on a evo 3d.

    unfortunately i do not know much about boost and such. but here is a guide over at xda that might help. here is the link:
    Htc flash to boost mobile guide [noob] - xda-developers. maybe you can post a question there as this is an evo forum. plus folks over in xda might be able to help better.

    So after a succesfull flash to boost on my Evo 4G. I decided to finally try and flash a new Rom. Did a nandroid and flashed using Rom Manager to Mikg 2.1/3.0 sense. Worked like a charm.. no problems at all, still on the Boost network and Mikg Rom rocks. Im sure I will have more fun after playing with the settings tweaks.... Thanks for all your help again Solbadguy89...

    Thanks for all the info, great resource, I have been searching around for about a month now on and off, and just found this... Anyway, I am on the downsige of flashing the EVO 4g to boost using an incognito as my donor. I have written the nv, (NAM1/2) files to the EVO and am in the process zeroing out esn/meid #'s. I have zero'd 8 ESN and 9-10 MEID. after zeroing out all matching numbers from a list of know ESN/MEID locations for my radio(downgraded from to I rebooted my phone to see if anything had changed knowing that I still had some locations to find manually to zero out the rest, I noticed after typing ##786# that my ESN and both MEID #'s are different than they were originally prior to rebooting the phone. Also my phone number(that matched my donor & still does in CDMA), PRI version, HW version, SW version, is now scrambled with the odd characters similar to what you see in the right hand side of the memory viewer in QXDM. I made sure not to zero out anything that didn't match my ESN/MEID numbers, I am just hoping that once I zero out the remaining locations and finish the flash that all this will straighten out, is this a possibility?

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance, and sorry for rambling just want to be somewhat specific.

    Anyone with a prevail want to lend a hand? I have voice and text working but I am having trouble with data. Have all ha and aaa's. Should be right but my 3g won't work. Not sure what I am missing. Appreciate any extra help. I can help people that want to get the incog working.

    I wish. Nothing I do works. My prof1 on the prevail the hn and aaa spi are 1234. Not sure if that is what prof0 should be too. Other than that everything should be good. I must have missed something along the way.

    Scanning memory worked like a charm... CDMA workshop when finished scanning gave me the address' not having to calculate them, I was able to copy and paste into QXDM and there they were. Although after zeroing them out I did have to restart the phone, and zero them again, a couple times until they were all zeros. Now it is flashed... Talk and text work, was getting error 16 msg, called sprint cs and they reset the settings now works again. Did have the 3g icon flashing after QPST reboot. Now I just get error 67. I did after flashing install the supersonic 4.22.651.2 deodexed ROM to get the wifi hack and vm setup. But since the ROM install I can't use service codes ##DATA#, or ##786#. When typed in it doesn't do anything. Wondering if I should re install the ROM.

    I did deactivate my donor phone and activate a prevail I have, and left it over night. this morning I reactivated donor incognito only to get the same message(error 67), I then had to program the phone through there tutorial, phone reboot and was back on track. now just make sure nothing had changed I checked all current info on donor(incognito) with the info I had during the flash to see if anything had changed during this process, the only thing I found was that the AAA password for profile 1 had changed. i went ahead and copied and re wrote all NV, NAM, and edited and wrote the two profiles in QXDM to the EVO to compensate for any changes. Reboot still no data.

    I did have the same messages come up on my prevail last night after deactivating my donor, but programming it using boost's previously activated tutorial the phone was getting data again. I tried to update profile, PRL with the EVO as I did with the prevail to no avail. Still not data. Wondering if I should just flash to stock rom and start all over.

    Also I dont know if this is normal but when I write the the two profiles(0,1) to the phone in QPST I get the following errors:


    Does this have something to do with it having no data?

    Well I managed to fix mine. ##786# press menu press reset. I did hands free activation and update prl. Then I opened up qpst. Made sure my profile 0 was correct (I had to maek changes). Made active user 0 and write. I then had 3g. The error you see is normal. I saw some where how to issue ## commands from a terminal emulator but I can't find it aanymore.

    I just checked my profiles and the active profile was 1, not 0... I just changed the active user to zero and wrote it to the phone, still no data. read the phone again 1 was still active. Only when I went back in to the profiles, re entered everything that was already correct, then set 0 to active wrote to phone, phone rebooted. 3G icon appeared and has been working ever since. :)

    Still don't have MMS though, I did change the MMS setting's prior to flashing the ROM so i am assuming they are correct, just want to make sure since its not working.

    I still am trying to figure out how to get the ##786#, and ##data# to work. They worked prior to flashing a new ROM.

    Is there a way to maybe boot in safe mode to change these settings? I am giving this phone to my father so I just want to get all the bugs out before I do so.
