    I got almost through part one where you boot up the bootloader here is what I get................................SD Checking pc36img.zip
    loading
    No image
    loading no image or wrong image
    loading...............

    Main Version is Older
    Update fail!

    Do you want to reboot device?



    I checked the Sd card and the image (zip) is there. Thanks for any and all help!!

    Are you using simple root?

    well, i was hoping you were using simple root, but if you are following that guide to the letter, then you are using unrevoked. I had a similar error message when using simple root that I found a work around for.

    Have you tried the new one click method for unrevoked? maybe that would work for you???

    No, I have not even heard of it????? I would rather do it manualy, but I'm stuck and see no other way out but to try this one click root. Is it a full root?

    Yeah I know it will root since I root mine last night but I am saying I think the one click root only work for 2.1 but I am not sure on that

    The new unrevoked 3.2 is intended to root 2.2 devices.... in one click. but i think the link has been pulled out because a couple of bugs were reported, so if u dont wanna do it the long way ( which is not really that complicated anyway) then some ppl might wanna wait til they sort out the issues with unrevoked 3.2

    I prefer to do it the long way, just after four attempts with the exact same outcome, one tends to become quite frustrated! I guess I will mount the disk and get rid of the zip files that I pulled onto the SD card earlier and download them again and try some more!!

    I had this issue when I tried to unroot, it has to do with the version of your bootloader. If I remember correctly, I had to find a different version of the pc36img and had no problems. When I rooted my second evo following the new method, and using simpleroot instead of unrevoked,i had no issues

    Now that I am in 2.1 can I use the simpleroot method? Unrevoked3 has been taken down!!!

    just go the long way so you can learn it, so if something like this happen again to the new phone that you get later, you will know how to fix it, i root my hero and because of that, it was really easy for me to root my EVO

    Yes, and remember that unrevoked 3 and unrevoked 3.2 are 2 different things.
