    Hey all I rooted my Evo yesterday and today I notice I cant send/receive MMS, anyone have issues with that after a root? I searched forums but couldnt find any issues about this.

    What rom or just stock rooted? There were some specific rims that had issues a while back.

    Have you tried deleting data etc at menu.settings.manage apps.messaging

    Give me more details on ur set up :)

    ok so far after 11 or 12 pages I have found two possible solutions

    go through the same steps above and force stop the messaging app and then go open it and try the mms again
    and
    make sure wifi is off...

    in that case find a stock rooted rom...

    go into recovery (nandroid to be safe and make sure your apps all have a current backup) and wipe dalvik and cache , DO NOT wipe data, you are simply flashing over what you have. you shouldn't loose much at all other than some settings, widgets and customization

    flash the stock rom , try mms

    if it works than most likely you deleted something you shouldn't have

    go back through deleting/freezing stock apps but do a functionality test after each one

    Ok so I looked into fresh 3.4 its custom and I am wondering is that safe because you said not to wipe my phone but fresh forum comments says I should wipe it since it is a new ROM? is that a good idea? I backed up my current settings so if this goes wrong will I be able to just flash back to this stock root?

    glad it worked!

    just a quick disclaimer...if you do experience issues you will want to back up all your stuffs with titanium ...wipe all data, dalvik, and cache and reflash flash.


    Most have flashed it over stock with no issues....but he does say a full wipe is best. Fresh is not a stock rom but a custom rom based on stock.


    I really don't think you will have issues though.

    Glad I could help
