    So I finally piecemealed my old evo 4g back together after I completely smashed my new one.

    Problem is I get shit for reception. I don't know if its the physical antenna or the radio and such. I have insurance, so I want to unroot it and take it in for service.

    So I applied unrevoked s-on tool. That worked
    But when I try to flash PCIMG36, I get "no img wrong img"

    I've done this in Hboot, Fastboot, and the HTC RUU utility thing. But to no avail nothing works.
    I've also used different micro sd cards and reformatted them and placing only the pc36img on them. Still Nada.

    Also when in Clockworkmod Rom Manager, I update revovery, and it says its updated. But when I boot into recovery its still v2.6.0.1. Same happend when I flashed RA recovery and RomManager Touch recovery.

    Then I flashed a rooted stock froyo rom to reapply unrevoked. When s-off was back on, pc36img was recognized and asked for update. I said yes, it confirmed update, but still nothing changed.

    Also in froyo it let me flash EVO_Radio_2.15.00.11.19 after failed attemps in CM7.

    stats-
    SUPERSONIC EVT2-3 SHIP S-ON
    HBOOT-0.97.0000
    MICROP-041f
    TOUCH PANAL-ATMEL224_16ab
    RADIO-2.15.00.11.19

    signal strenth is -103dBm 0 asu (what does that mean?)

    I'd greatly appreciate all the help I can get. I've searched everywhere and tried everything I've come across before bothering you masterful folk:D

    welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    moved you to the rooting section as you will get better help here.

    unrooting your phone is a two step process.
    1. flash the unrevoked s-on tool
    2. flash the PC36IMG ruu via bootloader.

    use this guide here:

    just go to the unrooting section.

    I reapplied unrevoked and s-off. When I went into hboot (Power+vol Down) PC36IMG went through and asked for update. i did vol up for yes and it updated but hboot still stayed 0.97.0000 and nothing updated. even tho it went thru the process and ok'd everything, nothing changed and no update

    That's normal. Your hboot will remain the same after the PC36IMG.zip update. From the sounds of it, you're unrooted. To be sure, try running a root only app and see what happens.

    yes i did but you said that you re-applied unrevoked and got s-off. there are two files for unrevoked forever and then there is the unrevoked s-on tool. those are two different things.

    try running this ruu:
    RUU_SuperSonic_S_Sprint_WWE_3.70.651.1

    this is run on your computer. power your phone on and make sure that fastboot is disabled (settings>apps>uncheck fastboot) and also have usb debugging turned on as well. and then plug your phone in when you are promted to do so.

    huh that us odd? do you know what software version you are on? was it froyo, gingerbread?

    you can try the latest ruu for 4.67 and see if that works now that you have s-on:
    RUU_SuperSonic_GB_Sprint_WWE_4.67.651.3

    Mikfroyo to be exact.

    ok well that is odd that the earlier ruu which matches with what your phones radio is did not work. but since you have s-on, you can flash any of the updated ruu's with no issues.

    i have other ruu's if you want to try those as well.
