    Trying to run WIFI TETHERING, but SU just sits there and doesn't seem to do anything, but maybe force close. Running Smash rom. Honestly, I would probably switch roms, but I don't know how to do that. Someone else rooted my phone.

    Also, I'd love to get rid of stock apps. Any help would be appreciated.

    I had the same issue with ZenExp and SU, Would just sit at the black screen until i closed it out.

    Flashing Roms is simple,
    1.Download rom and put it in the sdcard
    2. Power off phone and then when you power it on, hold VolumeUp+Power which will boot you into amons recovery.
    3. Scroll down with trackball to wipe and wipe data and Dalvik
    4. Go to flash from Zip and choose the rom you downloaded
    5. Wait for it to flash and the choose to reboot your phone,

    Congratulations you just flashed a rom

    Generally how I fixed it, was have the phone connected to a PC while in having Debug mode enabled. Go to and run apps that need SU access and it will bring up the prompt to allow SU access. For some reason that got SU to work.

    Normally when SU hangs and then FCs, you dont have usb debugging enabled and it needs to be enabled for SU to work properly.

    Ok, I downloaded EvilEris3.0 (111mb), and followed your instructions. After I see the 3 little skateboards, the screen is blank and does nothing at all. I have been waiting at least 10 minutes, then pull the battery. Is there another step or something that I must do? Luckily, I can go back to Smash without any problems, by doing the above instructions. When I do this I am NOT connected to my usb cable and I don't have usb debugging on (whatever that is).

    you probably need to wait longer. load it and forget about it for about 20 minutes...i know, not easy to do...

    Nope, not working even after 30 minutes. Still showing a blank screen. Is there anything with the usb that I must do?

    You are probably stuck in a boot loop now, just dont have a boot animation to show it. Have you tried using a2sd in the past? Some roms dont work properly with certain versions of a2sd and you need to wipe ext also. So try this before anything else. Recovery > Wipe > Data, dalvik, and ext partition. It will wipe anything on your ext partition if you have created one. Then reinstall EE. I would also suggest you get a good copy of EE from grdlocks site prior to reinstalling.

    No, not using a2sd. Trying what you said to do, but its having the same result after 20 minutes so far. Will wait another 10 or so minutes before going back to Smash, as its the only one that works so far.

    Now my phone is really jacked up. Tried reloading Smash rom, but it keeps going through a "loop" of showing the Verizon Wireless and HTC "quietly brilliant". CRAP. Please help.
