ive been trying to root my virgin mobile htc evo v for three days now and having no luck. every time i get the part where you have to enter the command promps i always get the system can not find the file specified plz help what am i doing wrong?
ive tried the htc bootloader unlock from htcdev and the newbies guide on here. with both i have got stuck. i think it is step three in the newbies guide. where you need to enter command promps. cd C:\sdk-tools and it always tells me the system can not find the path specified.
It honestly doesn't matter where you extract it to but you have to run the commands from the location that you extract it to... It's a little hard to explain... Hmm. Maybe I could help you over team viewer to check the location and help you extract it to the location the guide suggests?
ok got past that this is the message i have nowC:\sdk-tools> \fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
< waiting for device > and its not going any farther, do i have to do something specific to get the phone to react?
HTC Sync puts the correct drivers on your PC. If you go into the software removal utility (uninstall programs), you should see HTC Sync and the HTC drivers listed separately. Remove HTC Sync, but don't uninstall the drivers.
thank you guys for all your help i got it all figured out and its rooted now after 4 days of trying lol. now onto my next issue. how to update my radio but i will start a new thread for that titled radio update if you guys would like to help me on that.
