    Hey guys, I can't seem to be able to flash a ROM to my evo. I used Unrevoked, backed up with Titanium,then backed up with ROM manager. I tried downloading ROM's from my Mac and putting them in the root of my sd card to no avail. I thought maybe something on the Mac was messing it up so I downloaded straight from ROM manager..same thing. I went to "install from sd card" and checked both boxes, it starts to install for a second then stops. I click reboot and it reboots into the stock rooted ROM.
    Any idea why it won't flash? I probably tried 6 or 7 times now. I searched everywhere and just can't find an answer. Any help is much appreciated.

    I've tried through ROM manager only. I guess I figured that it was just a quick way to get into recovery. My hboot is 0.97.0000. My s is off. Clockwork recovery is 2.5.0.1. I just tried through recovery instead of ROM manager...nothing.

    could it possibly be a corrupted recovery/clockwork? I had a similar issue with nandroid and flashed clockwork (avail over at xda or at unrevoked) and it fixed the issue

    It appears that my hboot 0.97 isn't compatible with some ROM's. I'm not sure about downgrading to .76 yet. Are there any ROM's that work with .97? I'm dying to know. Thanks.

    I've tried Fresh, Baked Snack and Cyanogen. I've downloaded them from ROM manager as well as my Mac..nothing works.
