    Hello, I am completely new to this rooting and s-off thing, and I took a stab at it and my phone is totally screwed. I was attempting this method.

    How to Get S-Off on HTC Evo 3D using Wire Trick! – [Juopunutbear S-OFF] | HTC Evo 4G Hacks!

    This is what I am getting from control bear:

    ======== ControlBear 0.6 beta for JuopunutBear S-OFF ==========
    Rebooting from bootloader
    Waiting...
    ...Waiting
    Detecting...Starting up......
    Connecting to device...
    Searching device.....
    Connect device and install drivers
    Press ENTER to exit.....

    On the phone screen, it says juopunutbear, with a green arrow pointing down to a picture of a phone.

    I tried rebooting my phone, it goes to the bootloader menu, and when I select recovery, it just goes right back to the bootloader menu. I have no way to connect my phone to my pc to add files, I have no way to do anytrhing really. Please somebody tell me I didnt brick my phone, and there is a solution. Thanks in advance!

    I cant reboot into anything. When I power on the phone, it goes right to bootloader screen, and I cant get anywhere else from there. Even when I select recovery, it just reverts right back to the main bootloader screen. When I plug my phone into the computer, it charges the bettery, but I cant access the sd card. Whats jomb? Sorry, I am completely out of my element right now

    While in bootloader, select fastboot.

    Plug phone into pc. Does it now say fastboot-usb?

    I had the same issues the other day and the people at the IRC channel were very helpful. try this out Unlimited.IO go look at the part that says "ROM / Data Recovery" I did what it says and BOOM, my phone went back to normal. Hope it helps. :)

    If I understand correctly you are being asked to do the S-off correct, if this is the case your safes bet Would be to continued trying the wire trick! Good luck

    Dang. I'm sorry it didn't help out. ):

    If you're really stumped go ask in the IRC channel. Just make sure you have all the info like what rom,computer OS, and what exactly you're doing. They'll help you out nicely. :)

    Just looking at the link name, I don't think this is the correct one for VM. ShooterU is for GSM phones. I would hate to cause a brick using the wrong software :eek:

    The Evo V is a CDMA phone (Shooter) as opposed to ShooterU.

    What Drivers do you have installed? From HTC Sync? Or somewhere else? You are rooted on the stock rom?

    Have you disabled any potentially interfering software such as htc sync, iTunes, antivirus, etc etc...?

    It definitely sounds like a driver issue. Can see that clearly from the OP...
    You can alternatively try these drivers.

    Can you say that you have verified everything on this list:


    If everything here is verified and correct then I would use their IRC help chat: Unlimited.IO
    as they will be the best source of info to get any issues beyond that sorted out!

    I am using the shooter version, specifically for the VM evo v cdma, with ICS. Now i guess the battery dies, and I have no way of charging it. I plugged it into the wall and into my pc and I get nothing. Looks like Im making a trip to best buy today. Merp

    No problem, mistakes happen, and normally I wouldn't say anything, but had to on this one to avoid potential damage!

    I will update post with correct link! :)

    With the phone dead, I think you should be able to charge it in the wall outlet.

    OK so all this time, I thought I had Windows 7 32 bit, just found out I actually have the 64 bit. I feel so stupid lol. So, step 1 is not done, and I dont have Ubuntu. I am downloading it now. Hopefully I can pull out some magic. Dont really know what to do thouigh. Maybe thats why the drivers arent working as well?
