    OK..

    I am using ROM manager. I am using a stock 2.2 after update. I rooted with unrevoked. So, I am trying to back this up. When I choose a name for it, it turns into the dreaded white EVO 4G screen and never does anything until I pull battery, and reboot the phone.
    I guess it's safe to say this is not going to work and I have to manually do the backup, etc? With all those steps, huh?

    You see, what I want to do is put Fresh on my EVO ...dab a little in custom ROMS, etc...

    Thanks.

    There arent that many steps. Download quick boot, it will boot right into recovery and once there you can create your nand backups

    Did you flash a recovery? Go into rom manager and flash ra recovery and see if that will get you into recovery. It seems that your recovery isnt working properly. Are you sure you have the eng bootloader? Volume up and power or in quickboot. Can you boot to bootloader?

    It's a no go..I think something went crazy..it just boots into the white boot loader screen on every boot...no option to even get back to the OS.
    Am I bricked?

    I'm not sure why I had to install the PCIMG file, when i already used unrevoked3.2.1 to root the evo...

    Just curious but when I was trying to get my apps and data back via Titanium if I didn't manually remove the old stuff from the previous ROM after I installed the rooted, deodexed and signed OTA update my phone kept restarting and having force closes on apps that were reinstalled by my backup pro. I guess there were some conflicts. Anyone have an owners manual for Titanium backup?

    As usual, thank you wake69. After I flashed the ROM some of the apps fc after my back pro it had already installed data and apps. I guess I really didnt know how to get my data and apps back with the correct procedure.

    can you run adb? If you can find the command to boot to recovery. There is a guide to adb on xda

    No...that's ok. I'd just prefer to reload my Android 2.2. How can I do this please? This has taken way too long to accomplish. I am now on Android 2.1 from that PC361 file and on a way outdated kernel and radio. I can't get any updates from HTC.

    Edit: I just updated my phone back to Stock RUU_SuperSonic_S_Sprint_WWE_3.26.651.6 that I found from Shipped Roms...I'll root again and update all my apps...
    Glad to be back in a comfort zone!

    Yes...I thought all hope was lost. I think I will lay off the custom roms for a minute...lol..Until I have another 5 hours to spend on the white EVO screen and BootLoader. For now, I'm back like I left off, minus my homescreen, I re-rooted and Titanium is restoring all my data. Sprite Backup is restoring Messages, Bookmarks, etc.
