    Thank you for checking out my thread!

    Basically here is the situation my roommate and I are in. She currently has the Virgin Mobile HTC EVO V. Her boyfriend has the Sprint HTC EVO 3D and decided to root her phone as well. He said the two phones are the same, and so I assume he went through the same steps he did for his phone. Well, something evidently went wrong and the phone initially booted straight into bootloader mode. I have since installed recovery, and tried factory resetting. I guess we have some sort of progress bc now the phone will boot to the white HTC screen but get stuck there.

    Any of you guys have this happen to you? If so, what did you do to fix this problem? I have been googling this issue and have kinda figured that I can just flash the stock RUU zip file and be back to factory? My problem is that I dont know the proper RUU to download.

    If anyone can please help me out, we would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks again in advance to anyone who can chime in with some insight

    Thanks

    S-on or off? Which hboot is installed? What recovery did you install? Did you try to install a Rom yet?

    EVO V 4G - All Things Root - Android Forums

    http://androidforums.com/evo-v-4g-a...evo-v-4g-ruu-flashing-guide-unroot-guide.html

    I went through the rooting guide tonight and left mine stock with superuser. At one point I was getting the HTC screen a couple of times when doing the reboot, but after a few tries it finally loaded.

    Everything you should need should be in the All thing root subforum. It also has all the info on rooting it after you fix it. So far the phone is supposed to be about 99% unbrickable.

    The phones are not the same, I would tell the boyfriend that unless he has an extra $240 laying around he needs to read instead of just going on what he knows.

    Hardware wise the phones are identical, obviously software is different.
