    recovery shows clockworkmod recovery v3.0.0.5

    any information on this would be greatlyappreciated, currently it does not have an sd card so i cannot changeromsor anything yet but when i find theright card for the right price....


    Also is it possible the po installed hidden software to do malicious behavior on this phone it doesnt act strange but in this day and age and with having my other evo stolen who knows i was really hesitant to buy used but couldnt afford to purchase new

    I cannot testify if this person installed bad stuff on the phone. Likely they did not, usually people do not root for that purpose in mind. However installing a new rom will definitely remove any bad stuff, and give you a "clean" slate to work from.

    Highly suggest you run this app, and see if your Wimax keys are still good though. https://market.android.com/details?id=com.joeykrim.wimaxkeys . One nasty thing that happens is people root and botch their wimax keys then sell the phone or return it for warranty.

    nothing works better per say, its just often we find people asking questions or having trouble on these forums and consistently we find they have clockwork installed. So we just started suggesting people to switch to amon ra as a PM sorta thing.

    If you're worried about things being on the phone, you could always wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache and wipe dalvik cache. Then reboot the phone. This way you are starting with a clean slate on the rom.

    And since you're using ClockworkMod, dalvik cache wipe will be under advanced;)

    Always remember before doing anything to the phone do a Nandroid backup and have a copy on your computer. If you are not able to hook up to computer and see files (due to no sdcard) try sending the backup to a "Cloud" like dropbox
