    Hello

    Im a noob here and I was wondering if the ZTE fury is a good donor phone to flash my HTC EVO 4g to Boost mobile and if so is there any guide to show me step by step on how to do it ...the evo is rooted but still has S-on...can this still be done ...Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    Wasn't sure if this is the right area for this topic so please forgive me this time.

    Thanks

    What exactly are you trying to do? You can't flash a ROM from one phone to another. They're device specific.

    If all you want to do is use your EVO on Boost, call them up and have them activate the phone. Just please, don't modify anything.

    Just called Boost they say they CANNOT activate a sprint hand set....even though sprinnt tells me that Boost can so..... My Question still stands would the ZTE Fury phone from boost be a suitable donor phone for my HTC EVO 4g ?

    You cannot use a Sprint phone as a donor. You have to get a Boost phone that can be used as a donor. The HTC will pretend to be the donor phone. The donor phone will get service from Boost. The HTC pretending to be the donor will pick up that service. But if the donor cannot get on Boost then there is no point. Try to get a Prevail or an incognito or a Replenish... but no Sprint Phones. Good luck.

    Re-flashing devices between carriers is not often supported by the carriers. In many cases the only way to successfully do this is by changing the ESN (IMEI) which may border on illegal.
