    Rooted using unrevoked Forever, unrooted using unrevoked s-on tool and PC36IMG.zip. Tried rerooting with enrevoked but, it fails almost instantly. Tried using a 2.2 ruu but it also fails.

    Im lost, im hoping i didnt lose my root...Im sure i didnt include enough information, not too sure what all info would be relevant

    Any help would be much appreciated.....unrooted is so frustrating...

    did you get the drivers installed? do you have htc sync uninstalled on your computer? did you stop any anti-viruses programs from running?

    also try and download unrevoked again.

    everything looks like it is froyo and not gingerbread so looks like they did not update you. unrevoked should work.

    your other option maybe is to try and update to gingerbread and then run revolutionary to get you rooted. you can follow this guide:http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html, if that is what you choose.


    edit:and you went here:http://unrevoked.com/rootwiki/doku.php/public/windows_hboot_driver_install to get the drivers installed correctly, right?

    will updating to gingerbread update my hboot? seems the revolutionary.exe is for 2.16 and 2.17. Tried running it last night a few times, do ineed to do an official update to gingerbread?

    by doing the update your hboot will change to 2.16. when your hboot changes then you can run revolutionary, if you want.

    whats lame is, i have 5 or 6 nandroids but just cant get to them!


    http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/194918-rooting-dummies.html

    thats the root process i used when i first got the phone, and the unroot process i used yesterday. Took the phone to sprint to get a speaker replaced, did sprint update my phone and not tell me? should i back up my /sd and just wipe everything?

    from the looks of it, no sprint did not update your phone. and yes i would wipe everything. if you can copy your card to the computer and format it through your phone. also do a factory reset and even a hard reset in hboot as well (clear storage).

    there must have been something on the sd card that was throwing it off, re formatted sd card and unrevoked went through with no problems

    thanks for the help ocnbrze!
