    Subject pretty much explains it all. Google wasn't much help.

    Essentially after Fresh Updater (from 0.5.3) downloads a theme and attempts to apply, my phone reboots with the recovery screen and a "?" above the phone icon instead of a "!"

    Any help is wonderfully appreciated.

    Edit: I say instead of a "!" but maybe this isn't even what it's supposed to do.

    Thanks again

    Which recovery are you using? With fresh updater you need to be using amon ra recovery. I rooted using simple root so mine had clockwork, which doesn't play nice with fresh updater.

    im somewhat baffled by how to go about putting on flipz's rom. Does Fresh Kitchen that i used when I was managing my Hero work at all with EVO? I'm a donor so I have fresh1.0 but still trying to piece together how to do this. For my Hero, I didn't have to mess with any of the adb shell stuff so I'm still trying to figure this out.

    I dont get what you are asking? Sounds like everything went fine. RA Recovery is the only recovery that will work with Fresh Updater.

    It sounds like your using an unsupported recovery. If you have ROM manager installed open it and scroll all the way to the bottom where it says alternative recovery's and click the one that says RA. That will flash that one and then go back to Fresh updater and everything should be good to go from there. :D

    I used this link to install Amon RA Recovery.

    [Recovery] [18-June-2010] RA-evo-v1.7.0.1 - xda-developers

    I downloaded the Recovery img from the link above. Copied it to the root of my SD. Downloaded a free terminal emulator from the Market opened it up and ran the following commands.

    su(press enter)
    flash_image recovery /sdcard/recovery-RA-evo-v1.7.0.1.img(press enter)
    reboot recovery(press enter)


    It was the easiest thing I've had to do to my Evo.
