    At my sister's today, and she asked me to root her EVO as mine is. In trying to boot into recovery, when I attempt to do so, I get to the white screen, select recovery, but then the red triangle with red exclamation point within it shows on the screen. The only way out of this is to do a battery pull and try again, but the same problem recurs every time.

    Is there something I'm not doing correctly?

    Just an update...

    In playing around with this a little more, I got this message:

    At the top of the screen the options are:


    • Reboot system now
    • Apply update from SD card
    • Wipe data/factory reset
    • Wipe cache partition

    What recovery are you using? I would highly, highly recommend using the newer amon ra style recovery;)

    +++1 for newer Amon RA I love the fact that I can use the front buttons for everything.

    Lord Vader what Hboot do you have? No problems when you installed the recovery?

    I finally got the problem resolved thanks, by accident, kind of, to a similar problem mentioned elsewhere in this forum. :D

    works like a champ! Too cool! you can use the capacitive buttons or do things like we are used to with volume up/down and power button!

    Thanks again!

    For future information. All you have to do is download regular amon ra and replace the recovery image in that zipped folder with the new img file renamed to match the one in ra recovery
