    Yes sir that's correct. It will work fine with almost any ROM you want. For negalite, I'm not sure if it works on stock HBOOT, which is what RUU will give you.

    Hey all, quick question...

    When I try to flash a zip by dropping it onto the root of the sdcard, I get CID Incorrect! error. I rename the .zip to whats it's supposed to be. Example - PG86IMG.zip

    When I reboot phone and go into hboot, it loads and then gives me that error. I am running hboot 1.07

    Any ideas? Thanks

    It sounds like your phone is not the specified model that the PG86IMG.zip was designed for. Hboot 1.07? Do you have a GSM version Evo 3d? If so I can move this over to the Evo 3d GSM all things root section. :)

    Actually no, I am running CDMA, so, maybe I have the wrong hboot. I did do the OTA VM update, which changed hboot to 1.8, and flashed back, so maybe that is my issue.

    Ohhhh ok. The old hboot is 1.57 and the new is 1.58. Can you link me to what you're trying to update? Is it the ruu? If so you can't run it after taking the update.

    Also, I'm assuming you are still s-on, if so no other PG86IMG files will work if you are s-on.

    The ruu is the exception, but the ruu won't work after the March update unless you are s-off

    Ok sorry haha Yes, I am on hboot 1.57. I am S-Off also. No, i'm not trying to flash the RUU. I was trying to flash ramsets radio files, one set works, the other doesn't. Also, I believe it is what you said earlier about the CID Version.

    In the android-info.txt, the ones that have SPCS_002mainver: work..

    The ones that have SPCS_001mainver: do not work. I am wondering if that's what it is.

    What is the best zip app to use?

    Thanks Again

    Yes you are correct. The SPCS_001 is the sprint cid and SPCS_002 is the VM cid.

    Just take the contents of the zip file and use the android-info.txt with spcs_002. Put them together in a zip file and name PG86IMG

    I use 7-zip for more complex things, but the built in windows zipper will work fine for this if you use windows.

    Don't change the CID in the version on XDA if that is one of the "sets" you are referencing. That firmware is for Sprint users only. In general, it's OK to change the CID on bootloader (hboot) and recovery PG86IMG.zip files but be very careful about doing that with firmware files. Sometimes it works, but it can also get you in trouble so ask about the specific firmware file before changing it.

    I thought it a little odd that you wouldn't have specified the CID for both... But I thought that all the radios were compatible?

    It's not so much the radio and PRI as the RFG_1.img and RFG_2.img files included in the firmware updates. I'm not sure exactly what those files do and unknownforce on XDA seems to think it's OK to flash them across carriers, but after the fiasco last May with Evo 3D users flashing VM firmware I'd rather err on the side of caution. :cool:

    Thanks all, I got it all worked out. I appreciate the help. I'm still learning, you people are helpful.

    One of the files was the on negalite, I didn't completely read that it was (Sprint), I just assumed it was for VM lol

    I never flashed it, but I did get your other firmware file flashed, so all is good.

    Thanks Again

    I do have another question though. Is there a way to delete what hboot is looking for on a boot. What I mean is, when I boot into hboot, it is still looking for like 4 different files that I must have flashed or something before, like PGDIAG.zip etc. Is there a way to delete that somehow, or where is that cached at?

    No, it always does that. It a standard check. When you are s-off you can flash files through the hboot. If it finds a file that it's checking for it will ask you to update.

    Plus I wouldn't mess around with modifying the bootloader. If anything went wrong you would be toast. Without a bootloader you can't do anything.

    Do you have USB debugging enabled in the phone's settings? And is your phone in FASTBOOT USB mode??
