ok im trying to root my evo shift on 2.3.4, i looked at a few vids and they say i have downgrade to 2.2 for S-Off, i tryed downgrading with the RUU but it gets stuck on 13% Checking Headers. so i unplugged it and tryed and still stuck, but i did manage to unlock the bootloard. since i couldnt try any of that i tryed these steps from XDA, ihave everything but i got stuck on step 6 placing the file in platform tools, i didnt understand anything, please help!! Also is there a 2.3.5 for the shift bcuz my regular Evo has it just wondering? 1 more thing, when im using internet pass through, it looses connection, and i have to keep refreshing everytime, even on the regular evo it does the same, and i have good connection, this all started a few days ago 1) Install HTC Sync and Android SDK with platform tools so you have adb! Android SDK available HERE: Android SDK | Android Developers INSTALL PLATFORM-TOOLS ONLY! HTC Sync available HERE (only needed on windows): http://dl4.htc.com/setup_3.0.5557.exe DOWNLOAD THE Shift rootkit here EVERYONE NEEDS THIS: Goo-inside.me Downloads - Downloading shift-rootkit.rar 2) Check your phone's Android version. If 2.2 skip to rooting Android 2.2 section. If 2.3.4 continue to the next step. If 2.3.3 skip to 2.3.3 section. WARNING: THIS VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY AND YOU WILL LOSE ALL DATA IN UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER =============================================== ROOTING ANDROID 2.3.4: 3) Be running stock 2.3.4 latest OTA update from HTC 4) Register at htcdev.com 5) Unlock the bootloader by choosing HTC Evo 3D for Sprint and follow instructions 6) Once you have unlocked bootloader flash clockwork recovery by downloading the following file: http://download.clockworkmod.com/rec...2.0-speedy.img Place file in adb "platform-tools" folder. From the adb folder run "fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-188.8.131.52-speedy.img" 7) adb reboot recovery 8) You will see the beautiful clockwork recovery screen. 9) Goto mounts/storage, mount usb storage 10) Download su from the following location: http://downloads.androidsu.com/super...ghi-signed.zip 11) Go back, install zip from sdcard, choose the superuser zip. 12) Reboot, open market, search for super user and install it. 13) Open superuser app go to preferences and choose update su binary. 14) Download terminal emulator and run "su" to test if you have root. $ should turn to #. 15) Place misc.img and PG06IMG.zip on sdcard using windows explorer or "adb push /sdcard/file.xxx" via usb. Again, please note that PG06IMG.zip is case sensitive. 16) Unplug the phone from USB. 17) Remove the battery cover and flash misc.img using the following command via terminal emulator or you can use adb shell with the phone hooked up via USB. Personally I feel more comfortable running this from terminal emulator on the phone: Code: dd if=/sdcard/misc.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17 and press enter. 18) REMOVE THE BATTERY WITHOUT SHUTTING DOWN THE PHONE as soon as you run the misc.img command. DO NOT SHUTDOWN OR POWER OFF. 19) Hold volume down button and hold the power button for one second and release while still holding the volume down button. Phone should find PG06IMG.zip and RUU to Android 2.2. From here you can flash engineering s-off bootloader. For instructions on flashing the engineering s-off bootloader skip to the rooting Android 2.2 section. Again before you ask, make sure you have a freshly formatted FAT32 microSD card. If your phone can't find the zip, you are doing something wrong, your SD card isn't formatted in FAT32, you aren't using CWM, or you need to try another SD card. You will have to manually upgrade to the new cellular radio after obtaining s-off and downgrading to Froyo again.
