    I don't know what to do. I downloaded the file off of their site. Made a zip and put the Img file in it. Renamed the zip into that PC36IMG name. And I put it in the root of my sd card.
    Now I boot into bootloader it recognized the file. And flashed it. But I click recovery and it takes me back to my old one clockworkmod 5.0.2.2.
    I need help please and thank you. Any advice would help

    I'm not sure how stable the touch recoveries have gotten, but theres been a LOT of bugs with past ones.

    If I were you I would go with Amon Ra 2.3.

    Its the best recovery for our EVO's hands down.

    +1 on Amon RA
    I heard touch recoveries can brick your evo

    Not that I want to encourage this, but did you rename the IMG file to simply "recovery.img"? Did you include the "android-info.txt" file in the zip? If you didn't, that could be why it didn't flash. Also, I believe they usually have recovery-flashable zips available for download too.

    But seriously, please ditch CWM and use RA-supersonic. It's a MUCH more reliable recovery on the EVO.

    I was also semi-bricked by TWRP, and the touch CWM changed my EXT3 partition to EXT4 without asking me and I lost all my apps. I had to reformat my card.

    There is just no reason to mess with any recovery except amon ra 2.3.
