    I've used the HTCdev method, and I have my bootloader unlocked.
    It says
    ***UNLOCKED***
    SUPERSONIC EVT3 SHIP S-ON
    HBOOT-2.18.0001
    I've only wanted to do this to be able to screenshot.
    Well after the process of unlocking the bootloader, I don't know what else to do.
    I even installed the amon ra 2.3.
    But I'm completely lost and I really need a good & easy guide to do this.
    I've been working on this for houuuursss!

    Welcome to AF and congrats on unlocking bootloader.
    I assume you are still on stock rom?
    To take screenshots you either need and app or a custom rom such as MikG which has the option to press an hold power then tap the home button to take screenshot.

    The best way to take a screenshot is with the "ShootMe" app. Set to JPG and medium quality. Root access is required.

    The shootme app didn't work. It said to make sure my device was rooted.

    Download the attachment. Plug your Evo into your USB port and mount it as USB storage. Just copy it over.

    BTW, the Evo Classic is better than MikG. By far. There, I said it. It's the best Sense rom, period.

    leave it as a zip, place it on the sd card then reboot into recovery find the menu item that says flash zip from sdcard choose the zip you downloaded and let it do its thing when its done reboot and you should have super user which will allow you to have root privileges

    I downloaded the rom manager from the market and downloaded miui and I need to know how to undo it. I want it to go back to how the phone comes before you mess with it.

    Dont use rom manager to flash roms...its buggy.
    Do it all via recovery.

    The guide that new optimus posted will help you in how to flash roms etc.
    Just scroll down to, I believe it is post 2.
    :D
    Briefly, you download rom to computer, transfer to sd card, wipe all except sd card 3 times and flash rom.
    Thats the brief version. Just remember to make a backup first in case anything goes wonky.
    Nandroid backups are also made in recovery.
    Wiping is done in recovery.
    Flashing is done in recovery.
    Fixing stuff is done in recovery.
    See how recovery is your best friend?

    Yes, do NOT use ROM manager. Actually, you wont be able to use it anyway since you're on Amon Ra (pretty sure it requires CWM).

    That is a good thing :)

    Flashing roms/kernels isnt something you can just jump into without instructions.

    well hopefully you made a nandroid backup. you can just restore the previous one. if you did not make one (you should have. just remember that nandroid backups are your friend). all you need to do is flash another rom.

    edit:the one you downloaded is probably on your card somewhere. i'm not sure where rom manager puts the download files.

    Probably rom manager folder. Either that or downloads
