    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    you still have s-on which means are not rooted yet. have you followed the rooting for dummies guide?

    That's hboot you're going to, not recovery. I'm going to guess you haven't gotten as far as recovery yet, depending on what you're exactly trying to do. That being said, what root method is this that you're trying to do? Are you still able to boot up normally?

    this is the guide i followed:

    How to Root HTC Evo 4G! [NEW] | HTC Evo 4G Hacks!

    i'm not sure if i'm using the wrong firmware or what. but i'll try to turn the s-on to s-off. it won't boot up at all. it just does the "htc EVO 4G" screen. just keeps looping it. sometimes it will go to the red triangle screen but nothing else unless i hold the volume down and power.

    What step are you on, exactly?

    i get to:


    and reboot to bootloader by typing:
    reboot bootloader When bootloader starts up, it will look for PC36IMG.zip and after about 5 minutes ask you if you want to install PC36IMG.zip.

    but when it gets there that's when it displays everything that i posted in my first post. it can't find any of the zip files...

    Do you have the PC36IMG.zip on the root of your sdcard? Also, if you do - check and make sure it isn't named PC36IMG.zip.zip - Several people have had that issue.

    there are 2 files on my sdcard, one called PC36IMG-ENG.zip and one called PC36IMG-MR.zip. (both only 1 .zip)

    When i turn my phone on in HBOOT mode with the sdcard in it says it's looking for PC36IMGDAIG.zip.

    This is what it display's:

    SUPERSONIC EVI2-3 SHIP S-ON
    HBOOT-2.10.0001
    MICROP-041f
    TOUCH PANEL-ATMEL224_16ab
    RADIO-2.15.00.11.19

    SD Checking...

    LOADING... (PC36IMGDAIG.zip)
    NO IMAGE!
    LOADING... (PC36IMGDAIG.nbh)
    NO IMAGE OR WRONG IMAGE!
    LOADING... (PC36IMG.zip)
    NO IMAGE!
    LOADING... (PC36IMG.nbh)
    NO IMAGE!


    after doing that it goes right back to HBOOT.

    Ok, would have been easier if you didn't try unrevoked 3, but let's see if this works. Somehow on the original tutorial you were following, it looks like step six didn't go like it should.
    You need to rename the PC36IMG-ENG.zip to PC36IMG.zip
    Now, click the link to this guide: [ROOT][GUIDE] HBoot 2.02/2.10 SOFF - Goodbye Stranger - Upd. 02.25.11 - xda-developers
    Start at step 9 and continue. (basically the same guide, but I know it works)

    Here's why:

    You were supposed to name that file PC36IMG.zip when you copied it. Are you currently able to boot up or not?

    EDIT: hehe, I should have hit refresh, first.
