    I can't find an RUU for this phone. I've been on XDA, and I've searched the googles. Why isn't there anything for this device?

    I'm going to get a few more folks involved and see what we come up with. Hold tight. :)

    Ok, I've found some info for you, finally!!!

    Here is a thread over at xda with instructions to flash a recovery. I assume your hboot still says unlocked, correct? If so go here and use this:
    [Recovery]CWM Recovery For HTC Design 4G & HeroS (aka Kingdom) - xda-developers

    Also I've found a bunch of links for your phone that should help you:
    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=evo%20design%20stock%20ruu&source=web&cd=2&sqi=2&ved=0CDEQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.xda-developers.com%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D1399351&ei=WI-DT-TMGebn0QHii_TqBw&usg=AFQjCNEK3W5StUIRamf3LpxUKRjzOZuEZw

    Hopefully something in these links will help. Let us know how it goes!! :)

    Here's the stock RUU.

    Shipped ROMs

    You have to use a PC with Windows to flash it.


    Give me a minute to see why this is different than other RUU's. Just downloaded it and this just doesn't look right.

    Do you know how to get to Hboot?

    Ok got what you need. Download and put this file onto the root of your MicroSD card

    PH44IMG.zip

    Boot up into HBoot and let it run. You'll probably have to select a few keys, just read the screen and when it asks you to update, always select yes.

    Hold Vol Down + Power to get into Hboot.

    This should completely revert everything back to stock. Let us know if you need anything else, and see you on the boards. :D

    You have to let it sit for a bit. Sometimes it takes 15-30 minutes to complete.

    does that zip file need to be unzipped to work and i have another zip file on my phone that is a custom rom.should i delete that rom off there before trying to restore the phone?

    IOWA Mr. Logic Pants Moderator

    No, put it on your SD fully zipped. Don't touch it other than to move it.

    :confused:i relocked my bootlader and now for some reason the metheod where you put it on your sd card and let it scan for it, is kinda working. when it said checking file it had a loading bar on the right side and before it didnt. after checking the file it went away again but i feel like we are getting close to unrooting this bad boy ps the ruu.exe program kept stopping half way through saying that i had the wrong program version but i checked before i messed with it. if you guys know anybody that can help me please let me know cause this is getting tiring.:(

    The issue with your phone is that it just came out, and there aren't that many developers working on it. I'm really frustrated that the RUU's we've found won't work. :(

    We've all scoured XDA and google to find anything. I'll send a PM to the OP over at XDA and ask for assistance, see where we end up.

    Without physically being there to see the device and see what's going on, I can't really think of anything else to try.
