    My buddy is requiring some assistance w/ flashing a ROM on his EVO LTE, but I have no actual experience w/ S-ON devices since all of mine were S-OFF.

    From what I understand, you'll need to install the kernel separately from the ROM. Could I just unzip the ROM and pull the boot.img?

    He wants to use MeanBean, but it's staying stationary at the splash screen.

    Update: I realized after the fact that he's still on ICS firmware, which explains why the ROM won't boot. I'll have to figure out how to get a ICS/JB RUU, so I can update him.

    Ah, yeah, my bad, you noted that earlier.

    Yeah, I was getting no end of JB trouble just testing out the stock one - it booted but after that, the sky was the limit on weird stuff - that cleared up when I upgraded my firmware, so, yeah you're dead right. :)

    Is the JB RUU encrypted? I heard HTC locked up the RUU's as of JB, so I'm just curious if I should make him RUU back to ICS, then manually update or go straight to JB.

    You cant RUU backwards.

    i dont think the RUU is encrypted. I'm not sure why they would do that :thinking:

    JellyBean RUU is definitely encrypted.

    Why? Because why are our bootloaders protected with an encrypted signature?

    That makes sense. I didn't think that all the way through/didn't fully understand that.

    I suppose I meant I didn't notice any changes from prior RUU's
