    So.. once you get to the Hboot white screen. Do you see something that says Recovery? If so, go to it. Once you click the power button to select Recovery, your phone will display a white screen acting like its going to fully boot up, but it will take you into recovery mode.

    Once in recovery mode, to make a nandroid backup, go to Backup & Restore, and from there it will ask you if you would like to back up or restore. Select Back up to make a nandroid of your phone. Make sure to keep the first 3 items checked, and also select your wimax keys to backup.

    Then go back, and select Reboot System.. Your phone will reboot..


    As far as tethering goes, there is an App on the market called "Wireless Tether" download that, and tap the screen, and you should be able to broadcast wifi

    Well to tether your phone, you can use Wifi on your stock rom that you ROOTED.. I would use Wifi with my stock rom after I rooted my phone. I have done it plenty of times for about 7 months before flashing my rom recently to MikG2.5...


    Here is the link in the Market for the wireless tether..

    https://market.android.com/details?id=android.tether&feature=search_result

    Just download on your phone through the market, and run it.. it might ask for super user rights, just allow it, and tap the screen to start the wireless tether

    You can flash one of the mikg roms or synergy based roms and they have the wifi tetherer and hacked sprint hotspot built into the rom

    look at the stickies of this forum. there is a http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/284413-roms-kernels-download-page.html sticky. also you can head on over to EVO 4G Android Development - xda-developers as well to checkout the new roms.

    in the http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html there is a section on flashing. follow the instructions there. also if you have not already done it, i would recommend that you switch recoveries to amon ra 2.3. in the guide there is also a section on recoveries and how to switch recoveries. but that is up to you.
