    Wiping does not reload firmware it just erases all data. For reloading firmware see the "ROOT" forum.

    This is how you do it:

    1.Turn the power off. If your HTC EVO 4G is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it
    2.Hold the Volume Down button
    3.Press and release the Power button
    4.You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock
    5.Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button
    6.Press and release the Power button
    7.Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO
