    OK I followed a youtube video and i thought I did everything right but i guess not. When i got to my Hboot screen it says

    -Revolutionary-
    SUPERSONIC EVT2-3 SHIP S-OFF
    HBOOT-6.16.1002
    MICROP-041f
    TOUCH PANEL-ATMELC03_16ac
    RADIO-2.05.00.06.10
    mar 8 2011,17:02:15

    HBOOT

    PARSING...{SD ZIP}
    1 BOOTLOADER
    2 RADIO_V2
    3 BOOT
    4 RECOVERY
    5 SYSTEM
    6 USERDATA
    7 MICROP
    8 SPLASH1
    9 WINMAX

    Do you want to start update?

    After I updated it and went to restore the screen goes solid white. Then I got a Red triangle. Any idea what I did wrong and how to fix it?

    Thanks for any and all help

    Matt

    It looks like your rooted, just have an PC36IMG.zip on your SD card. Can you boot into your phone OS?

    What happens if you select NO on the update? Can you then enter the custom recovery?

    The red triangle is stock recovery. Please tell me if you can boot into your normal operating phone. If that is working we will be able to load a custom recovery zip and flash it.

    Go to the GB Rooting guide. There is a section for switching recoveries. Follow the instructions there to get Amon RA flashed. Then you can flash a stock rooted rom or a custom rom of your choice. MikG2.5 is a good one to start.

    I'm guessing he has a corrupted CWM recovery .zip file on his SD card from the rooting process. So he needs to make sure to delete that first. This was going to be my next suggestion after he told me if he could boot into his phone or not :). Don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves.

    I was going to suggest you boot your phone to normal and connect to your computer mounting SD card for Mass Storage. Make sure to delete any PC36IMG.zip files already on your phone's SD card then follow these directions from http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html

    Similar to my guess. I figured that just going to the switching recoveries would have saved some time rather than waiting for the phone to boot up then having to go back to hboot. Get the PC36IMG file on the card and flash it. Either way will get him recovery and on to flashing roms.

    Without an SD reader or working recovery, the only way to manage the SD card is through the phone's OS. Thats why i was going that way :)

    That is the bootloader scanning for the PC36IMG file. It is made to do that by default when you reboot to it. You should not have one on your sdcard unless you want to flash it. Does your phone boot up normally or does it bootloop or stay on the White HTC screen?

    Is that when you try and boot the phone normally or try and go to recovery?

    Only if I try to go to recovery. If I pull the battery the phone boots up like normal

    Boot the phone normally then follow the directions in the GB Rooting guide to switch recoveries to Amon RA. Once you get recovery, you should be good to go. Unless you have an sdcard reader to put your sdcard in, you will need your phone booted to allow access to your sdcard to transfer the file.

    I'm glad you got everything working. Did I mention NANDROID then copy said nandroid to your computer for safe keeping. Rename it to something like "OriginalNANDROID" and keep it safe. Also make damn sure you select WIMAX in the backup options. Might I also suggest you do this twice and make 2 backups and store them in separate locations just in case.

    As for roms, look at the roms and kernels download sticky on these forums and flash away. Find one you like. Then flash another one, and another, and another, and another, and another, and another............................................................................................
