    I have an EVO 4G that boots into the Hboot screen when powered up. Currently I am unable to get the SD card to Mount, therefore unable to do a recovery etc. Any thoughts?

    The unit is rooted via revolutionary, Hboot 6.16 S-off. I cannot get the unit to go into recovery mode and am not able to get the unit to recognize the SD Card.

    ok well do you have a card reader? or another card? basically we need to get a file over to the sd card and see if we can get a custom recovery and then try and flash a rom and see if that fixes the issue.

    I was able to "fastboot" the unit into CWM recovery. I have tried another SD card but am unable to get the unit to recognize either card.

    Just a thought here you said your friend got it off of eBay. This might sound dumb but is there an sd card in the phone? :rolleyes:
    Edit...nvm

    not sure what you mean by fastboot into cwm recovery? so you can get into recovery then?

    Yes there is an SD Card in the phone.
    I was able to go into DOS and force the phone into recovery. So currently I am in Clockwork Mod (CWM) recovery and unable to get the unit to see any of the known working SD cards that I have.

    so you can get to recovery using the command window and adb? that is good. and when you select install .zip from sd card what happens?

    AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    yeah i would switch from cwm to amon ra 2.3 myself. it is a much better recovery. once you have that then you can try and flash a rom. i would suggest that you try Mikg3.11 just flash the full wipe version. it is waaaaay better then stock.
