Black screen after return to stock attempt.

    I recently rooted my HTC Evo 4G, but I had issues with the SD card and decided to return it to stock. I followed instructions that were posted on another forum to return it to stock with RUU, but failed.

    Now, when my Evo is plugged into a PC, it displays a black screen that says "htc" in the middle, and those little triangle in exclamation point things in each corner. When I unplug it from the PC, it goes straight to HBoot, but there are no options to choose or anything.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could get this thing up and running? Or am I basically screwed?

    (My PC doesn't actually seem to detect the phone either.)

    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    the red triangle means that you either have a stock recovery or that you have lost your custom recovery. what is your hboot? and do you have s-off or s-on? post that then we can go from there.

    My HBoot is 2.16.0001

    On the screen right now, it says...

    "-Revolutionary-

    SUPERSONIC EVT2-3 SHIP S-OFF
    HBOOT-6.16.1002
    MICROP-041F
    TOUCH PANEL -ATMEL224_16AB
    RADIO-2.15.00.05.02

    RUU"

    "Revolutionary" is highlighted in pink, and "RUU" is highlighted orange.

    And thank you for the welcome! :)

    ok so looks like the ruu you used switched your hboot back to 2.16 and you do not have a custom recovery. you still have s-off, but as of right now there is not a tool to turn it to s-on. so you should be good to go.

    I meant to say that my HBoot was 2.16. Right now, it says it is 6.16.1002.
    I would post a picture of the screen, but unfortunately, I'm a new user. :/

    "RUU_Supersonic_1.32.651.1_Radio_1.39.00.04.26_release_171253" is the name of the file I downloaded.

    You can try and run the RUU from this post. It is the most recent. It seems like the RUU you ran didn't get all the way through the process for some reason.
     
    ADomenick91092 and ocnbrze like this.
