    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!
    wait you are already rooted? no need to do anything. do you have a recovery? go to the bootloader and select the recovery option. if it is a red triangle with an exclamation mark then that is a no. you will then need to go to the http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html and go to the switching recoveries section for instructions on how to get a custom recovery back to your phone.

    if the answer is yes you have a recovery, then we will need to know which one? and what exactly is the problem then, cuz if you have s-off and a custom recovery then you are good to go.

    Thank you so much. and yes I hacked my phone before, as i saw every major forum had information with hboot 2.18, and i was confused. I did the steps as you told me, and i got a yes that i do have a recovery. But idk what now, i have s-off, and i used revolutionary with Android version before 2.3.5. other then that, i dont think i have a backup, where can i get one?


    Update: I found some backup for 2.2 and i was able to restore to that update, how do i update to a 2.3.5 rooted update?

    do you have a custom recovery? if so which one? to make a nandroid backup you will need a custom recovery. if you read the http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html. all the info is in the guide.

    and if you go to the http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/284413-roms-kernels-download-page.html. it has a 4.67 section. you can flash on of those roms to get you to 2.3.5

    and what backup are you referring to about 2.2. little confused on that one.
