Does a rooted boost mobile, HTC EVO Design still work with HTC Sync?
Hey thanks Rally for responding so quickly to that. I wouldn't have even known the answer myself unless I tried it out.
what happened to 2fastroms website?
The link for CWM no longer works. Fix Please
This is a great step by step guide. It is easy to follow and works great! But I am pretty sure that you will not want to install Boost updates once you have rooted your phone or it could end up like the LG Marque disaster of earlier this year.
Sorry guys, the website at which all of 2fast4u88's work is temporarily down. Cookiefrog, a partner of his in some of the work on his website, has stated the website will be back up shortly. I will muster up a link in my dropbox of an unaltered version of whatever you need, just PM me.
I had this problem too. I disconnected the usb cable then reconnected, re ran fastboot and everything worked fine.
hey savage shadow. do you think you can send me all the necessary files to root the htc design 4g. 2fast4u88 page is down and i have no way of obtaining the files. also did you guys ever figured out if the root works after the ics update on sprint?
Does the root work with Ice cream sandwich for evo design for sprint?
Thanks Savage Shadows. For the great info. I was able to root my phone, but can't go any further. can't install clockwork.
Press <Power> to reboot.
I am on step root. with PH44IMG.ZIP.
can some one help me i get stuck at step 5 on unlocking the bootloader
I was trying to use 2fast kingdom utility , and every time I do a command such as pull token it always says something about cannot find specific path. On everything I do. Can someone explain that for me ?
i have the evo design sprint....i unlocked it! do i go straight to cwm or what? lol. and if so do i still delete the ph44img?
richardjas4444 - If you want to flash custom ROMs and create back ups of your phone, go straight to CWM.
braxton355 - I still have not gotten around to messing around with the utility from 2fast. If you're having issues with it, and have made sure you followed any directions to the letter, try unlocking through the HTC site.
pancho32392 - Don't have time to look through the HTC site right now, just quickly answering a few questions. What is the main gist of step 5?
my phone is sprint....can i go ahead and use the chapter where it say for boost mobile only if i only want to root my phone?
I have both zip files on my phone.
I repower and go to recovery and am in CWM
I have done all the wipe stuff.
I select "install zip from sdcard"
Select "choose zip from sd"
scroll to the zip file, select it, hit the power button.
Screen says installing update...
I am stumped.
richardjas4444 - I sent you a pm
aloharover - any chance you re-locked your bootloader after flashing ClockWorkMod? I don't know if it affects it, but that could be your problem. Really not sure. I'm not a dev, so I might suggest either presenting your issue in the appropriate section on the 2fastroms.com webstie (on that site our device is referred to as the Hero S), or sending a message to 2fast4u88.
i keep getting an error that says...incorrect cid update fail!! my phone is unlocked...at least thats what it says!?!? anyone know why?
So I'm running version 3.14.651.0.710RD, sprint, ICS 4.0.3. I unlocked the boot loader - however none of the other steps mentioned appear to work.
I'll try to help you guys out with your issues in a minute. Just wanted to update that I'll probably not be as active in this device's forums for a while. Phone got stolen yesterday, and I was the phone rooting dumbass who decided they wouldn't be paying for protection on their $300 phone. Haven't lost or broken a phone in over five years, guess I was just due to get that bad luck again.
That's very unfortunate to hear man. Yeah keep me and the others with questions posted I'm very interested in rooting my phone. I like what you guys are all trying to do here!
I have tried that guide the only problem I have is after downloading the SDK files needed (SDK tools, etc) there where two I believe. And I have searched high and low trying to find them because I need three other files from those (fastboot, etc). But I can't find the two I downloaded on SDK manager it says there installed but doesn't let me browse the downloaded files. I tried for three or so days and gave up and tried your 2fast tool but that always says "couldn't find specific path".
