Can you use ext4 touch recovery with smart flash so you can flash roms with s-on..
i just switched to teamwins 2.0 recovery the one where you can touch the screen its actually much better and now im rooted and already have a rom in
Do you have s-off aswell?

If you're using TWRP 1.1 (which it looks like you are) then you have to select Flash Zips Naowz (or whatever it says for Flash now). TWRP 1.1 allows you to flash multiple zips at the same time, so it's just waiting for you to say go.
Sorry for a noob question but if I root it this way will it be a "vanilla" ics or will it still have Htc sense On top of it?
You still will have HTC Sense, but after you unlock via this procedure, you can install a CM9 or any other AOSP (vanilla Android) ROM to remove Sense. However, the AOSP ROM pickings for this device are slim and they're buggy.
Quick question, I'm at the HTCdev - Unlock Bootloader section. Do I choose EVO 3D (Sprint)* as my supported device?
I just selected EVO 3D (Sprint) and now it says to update the RUU. Do I do that first or just skip step 1 and do step 2?
I skipped the ruu part and it worked fine for me. I think they discussed that a bit earlier in the thread, take a look.
So I got it unlocked and now I am trying to enter in TWRP 1.1.1. How do I go about doing that? So far I'm on step 5 and I've done the following:
It just reboots my phone and I do not enter TWRP 1.1.1
I had the older version of TWRP so I placed TWRP 1.1.1 and now I am in recovery
Just to confirm I understand you correctly: You said you had an older version of TWRP and you used TWRP 1.1.1 to fix your problem. Or you tried using TWRP 1.1.1 and used a newer version (TWRP 2.0 or 2.1) to fix your problem?
I tried installing TWRP 1.0.3 but then I installed TWRP 1.1.1 and it installed no problems. Now I'm Rooted
thanks alot for the guide jerofld!
got my Sprint branded EVO V yesterday and rooted it as soon as I got home.
after rooting a coupla LG Optimuses(thanks JerryScript), a Kindle Fire and some Nextbooks, this one had the most steps.
your instructions were well laid out, most definitely.
Ok.... got a problem. I flashed [-ROM-5-26]*updated v2.0* ZR3DX-Sense 3.6 [team420]-THEMED-Sprint-BEATS-odex-EXTRAS and now I'm stuck in a boot loop. I went back to recovery and did a full wipe and formatted system, data and boot. I reflashed the stock rom from here and still stuck in a bootloop. Just stays on the white screen with the green HTC logo. Can anyone help me fix this?????
Did you manually wipe data or do the factory reset option in recovery
I manually wiped all data. I had to reload twrp recovery and restore a nandroid backup i made when I first rooted the phone. 4ext wouldn't do it.
am I able to rename the folders that my backups are in like I can with cwm? If so that would be helpful for me to differentiate the different backups I would be doing
Yes. If you used Rom manager to start the backup you can rename it then
I cant Daemon to start when i put in , adb reboot bootloader after i enter debugging, someone help me!
Hey guys i'm trying to flash the recovery but every time i try it say "can not load recovery img" i've followed the instructions pretty carefully and tried flashing it multiple times without any luck. I also tried locking hboot again with RUU, and try the whole process over. If anyone has any clue please let me know
p.s i am putting the recovery in the root of my sdk-tools, and fastboot works when i type it into cmd
anyone have any ideas?
I had the same problem, it turned out then when i renamed the recovery file to "recovery.img" it actually already had the extension .img so it was "recovery.img.img" and was refusing to flash via fastboot. Rename the file just "recovery" and then do the command as stated
"fastboot flash recovery recovery.img"
If that doesnt work, try to re download the recovery, you might have just gotten a bad dl.
thanks i'll try that
thank you so much for the response that did that trick . know i'm flashing the harmonia rom
Glad it worked! Be sure and check out the 4EXT recovery, for $3 its really worth it in comparison to the TWRP recovery.
