Thanks for the reply jmz! I've learned a whole lot from your posts.
did everyone else use the windows early ics leak download for the evo 3d?
i downloaded the above zip..moved the entire zip to my C: directory
opened it up, clicked on the controlbear.exe it asks to extract or run i select run..it opens a command window but says..."critical failure".."files are missing" press enter to exit..press enter and it kills the window..i also re-downloaded the zip a few times to make sure it wasn't the cause..any thoughts?
You need to extract the file too..
Never mind. Got it working. Its pretty straightforward .
Took me awhile but i got S-OFF
okay so i got stuck in s-off proceedure it was getting ready to let me do wire trick then it said cant find bear is bar closed and made me exit..
im using 4ext recovery..what fastboot command wouldni give to boot me into recovery?? fastboot boot recovery.img wont wont..
Its all in the timing Johnny. Bar was closed for me about 30 times before it worked.. what helped was the YouTube video.. are you stuck on the juopunutbear screen ? If so don't worry it can be fixed with a simple command
Edit: page three has the command
lol i was in a serious jam..tried all commands to no avail..
my best peice of advice ..with the experience i just had ..
if you get in a jam go to webchat.freenode.net ..room-#juopunutbear
they will willingly give you support..one of juopunutbears creator walked me out of a tight situation..i will willingly donate to those guys..they are awsome
I am kinda scared to do this. Kinda seems like I could brick my phone or **** up my memory card.
So I should use a paperclip?
you can use several different things, i used a thin insulated copper wire..out of a 8guage thermostat wire..you don't want to thin because you wanna make good contact..but can't have it to thick or it won't fit
This is what I used for the wire trick
I made it out of a paper clip and electrical tape
That's what I was gonna use lol
but would a paperclip work?
It worked perfectly for me you just have to get the timing right it took me over an hour to get S-OFF
PS. You should back up your memory card better safe then sorry....
Why will it fry my memory card?
i dont even get a prompt to attempt a wire trick. just says found backup! then says abd server is out of date, daemon started successfully and then quits immediately
It might erase your memory card that's why it makes a backup but its rare for it to corrupt your memory card either way its still safer to make a backup
*most likely nothing will happen to your SD card but keep in mind that your grounding out electricity to it...
did you uninstall htc sync?
Ok about to do this and I know a paperclip will work with this but I don't have any tape atm (electrical tape, masking tape, scotch tape) Should I be fine with doing this or no don't do it.
I also downloaded the .exe from the first post. Should I have done that or should I download the ICS Leak?
ics leak..i would insluate the clip with something
You're going to want to insulate that. Accumulated static electricity can permanently damage your phone.
Ok so I should come wrap this in scotch tape? I think I have that somewhere in my house.
Ok no scotch tape but I do have duct tape. Can I use that?
Probably. Try googling it to see if duct tape is conductive to make sure.
Maybe..... Try Googling to see if its a good insulator
Lol I was ninja'd
Ok well I searched and found this:
Source: Duct Tape... conductive?
Still a little hesitant to try this. Cause if I **** up this phone I can't easily buy a new one. And can't go back to my OV since it was stolen.
