    I need some help. I followed all the instructions on how to ROOT using unrevoked3. That went great and I have full root (S-OFF). I downloaded MikFroYo's 4.5 ROM. Now here's my problem. After it downloaded I tried to put the file into my SD card. The phone is plugged in and it says, Removable Disc F:. Dragging the file into that directory, it says Please Insert a Disc into Removable Disc F:. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any help, I appreciate it.
     


  2. Is your phone set to mount as "Disk Drive" or "Charge Only"? When plugged in, check the drop down notification bar to be sure.

    After changing to "Disk Drive", my computer needs a couple of seconds before it allows me to open it.

    That's probably my problem. I was still in charge only from doing the ROOT. Forgot all about doing that.

    Well I got the ROM and Kernel flashed. Everything was doing ok. I set up AddFree and it recommended a reboot. I did the reboot and now it's stuck on the white htc EVO 4 screen?

    EDIT: I wiped everything, then reflased. Working ok now :) Just won't use that app again I guess?

    1) Did you flash any other mods, etc. from recovery aside from the ROM and kernel?
    2) Did you restore anything from your stock ROM, and if so, how?
    3) Was this the first time rebooting since flashing the kernel/restoring backup? (asking because it might be a coincidence)
    4) Turn the phone off (pull the battery if you have to), then turn it back on while pressing and holding volume down to get to hboot. Select recovery, then wipe cache and dalvik in recovery. Reboot, and see if it boots up. Start with that.


    EDIT: I guess I should have hit refresh before posting this. Heck, answer the questions, anyway, if you like, and maybe we can figure out what happened.

    Sorry, I didn't get a post for awhile so I figured I'd try to figure it out (the mechanic in me). Since I could get into HBOOT I figured I could wipe cache and dalvik and try it again. I've read that helps out sometimes, fortunately it did this time. No I didn't flash any mods and didn't restore anything from my stock ROM.

    I've been looking for MikFroYo 4.5 all over the place and cannot find it. Where did you find it? When I go over to xda it only lists 4.4.

    Thanks man, I got that link from another thread I was asking for it on. I tried it out, but am likeing 4.4 better for various reason, not the least of which is 4.5 has no 4G.

    4G works fine for me on 4.5

    Right, there should be nothing wrong with 4g on 4.5. What is it doing that makes you think it doesn't work?

    Yea, sorry I have to correct my post there. I "THOUGHT" it wasn't there because I didn't see it in the "Notifications" drag down area. I neglected to pan over from the Home screen and look there. My mistake.

    See my reply to "Andy". :) I'm just sooo used to seeing things in the notifications area that I neglected to look in other places.

    If you want the widget back in the notification panel widget, follow the instructions here to customize those widgets.
