    I'm running myn's warm 2.2 RLS 5 with the aggresive netarchy kernel but wanted to revert to the RLS3 kernel, for it had the best battery life for my device. Went to reboot, and the phone won't move past the white HTC EVO 4G screen. I rebooted in hboot and tried wiping all the data on the phone but to no avail, it's still stuck on the white screen. Can this be resolved or am I screwed?

    Can you get to recovery from hboot? Generally if you can get to hboot you are fine. Also what you can try if you can get to recovery, which you should be able to, download the same kernel just with the less aggressive HAVS. Then move it to your phone by mounting the phone as a disk drive from recovery, then try flashing that kernel.

    False alarm. I read another thread (perhaps what I should have done from the jump) and got everything squared away...Best Buy said I should go to Sprint, but I knew I just needed to go home and hop on androidforums ;)

    Never mind once again... Perhaps it was on the white screen so long it just drained the battery. Currently at 17% and charging...The day is saved.

    woops didn't see this. I don't know know if you have seen the stuff about more aggressive and less aggressive HAVS but if you see any more problems such as random reboots or anything not normal should probably flash the same kernel but with less aggressive HAVS. Some phones are sensitive to the more aggressive HAVS.

    I'll do some research and apply the necessary results. Thanks for all your help thus far.

    Did you actually flash the RLS3 kernel (that, being HTC #10) or did you just get stuck at the splash screen on a normal reboot? They are two completely different issues, and I'm curious as to what you did and what you did to fix your issue. If you *did* flash that kernel (where did you get it from, anyway?) it would never work. New radios with an older kernel like that will almost invariably not boot up. If it was just on a normal reboot, and you sill had netarchy, which netarchy kernel was it, and what did you ultimately do to fix it? There are a few things I would have recommended.
