    The main reason that happens is running the command from the wrong location. Make sure the directory is Set to the exact location that your fastboot.exe is located!

    Should be C:\sdk-tools according to this guide but browse your PC to verify the exact location.

    Hello all,
    I have been wanting to root my Evo V on Virgin for a LONG time. I am hoping the holidays afford me the time to get the job done.
    I have read through SOME of this thread, and am wondering if the initial guide is still up to date. Can I still use the same downloads and directions?
    My details:
    Model Number: PG86100
    Android 4.0.3
    HTC Sense 3.6
    Software 2.95.652.5 71ORD
    Thanks in advance,
    RJ

    Well, i don't know what the exact issue is but which device do you have? This device Forum is for Htc Evo V 4g (Shooter) and the rom you are trying to install is for Htc Evo 4G (Supersonic).

    Kind of confusing, I know, but would like to know which device you are using before continuing.

    Supersonic stuff won't work on your phone. You're pretty lucky it failed.

    Are you using our root guides and stickies?

    Help us help you. :)

    Where are you so far?

    The instructions in the first two posts of this thread are pretty good - if you can say in those relative terms - example, getting started, or, ok through step 2 in the first post, etc etc, then we can save some time and error.

    You'll definitely want to make a backup.

    As for a rom suggestion, it's hard to say... What are you looking for?

    If you are wanting to stay stock but just have root access on the phone, you can flash the superSU binaries instead of flashing a rom.
    You can get those here: SuperSU Download


    That zip file (or a rom zip file) will go on the sd card.

    So after you make a backup, you would navigate to the install menu in your recovery and then locate the zip file that you put there. Hit okay and you should be good to go...


    I assume your phone is still s-on? That you didn't perform the wire trick to get s-off?

    If so, your rom choice is more limited because you will only be able to use roms compatible with hboot 1.58.0000. That basically means only Ice Cream Sandwich roms.

    I have to go for a bit, but I'll be checking in here and there.

    I will probably be around. Judging by the time you posted this morning, I'm going to assume you mean 6pm eastern time which will be 3pm for me. I'll be at work then, and might be pretty busy, but I'll do my best to keep an eye out.

    If you want S-off, you will definitely want to use this guide: http://androidforums.com/evo-v-4g-all-things-root/695161-s-off-root-fix-everything-all-in-one.html

    It's pretty straight forward and easy to follow. Just take it step by step and ask questions if you're stuck on a specific step.
    And backup your sd card ahead of time. A few people have ruined their cards during the wire trick.
