    Hello all - I rooted my Evo with Revoked and currently sit at 3.29.651.5. Did try to take the OTA to 3.70 but it did not work (my phone still works fine though). How do I go about upgrading to 3.70.561 with my already rooted Evo? Thanks. :thinking:

    First I would make sure you can get to recovery and still have s-off. If those are good, I would download and flash Sprint Lovers from this page: http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/284413-roms-kernels-download-page.html

    It is based on the 3.70 update and includes the radio updates you will need to run the newer software version.

    Yup solid advice. Once you have flashed sprint lovers and it upgraded radios and everything you may proceed flashing whatever 3.70 rom you like.

    FYI, sprint lovers is technically not a stock rom. If you want to go completely stock, you will need to flash a stock rom.

    We suggest sprint lovers because it had the radios and everything packaged with it. I told him he could flash whatever 3.7 rom he wanted after that. If it's stock he wants so be it. Spring lovers Is just the easiest way to upgrade.

    Ok, so I flashed the new Sprint Lovers rom today. No problems, now I have the latest updates showing. Problem is I had not made a backup that had wireless tether in it. when I download it now from the market, it won't install. I get a Installation error.."package file was not signed correctly" Any idea how to get it installed? thanks

    What app did you try and download? Wifi tether for root users is the one I have used without any issues. If that is the one, maybe try and download it again. You could possibly have gotten a bad download.

    Thanks for the responses. The thing is, it was really easy for me to root the phone with a video using unrevoked (rooted in order to be able to use Wifi Tether), that I really don't understand some of the things you guys are referencing here. For example, "First I would make sure you can get to recovery and still have s-off" - have no idea what that means! :eek:

    That was just to verify that when you tried to flash the OTA update, it didn't do anything to your recovery and didn't some how turn s-off to s-on. You need to be able to access recovery and have s-off in hboot to be able to flash. If you read through the Rooting Guide specifically the "After Rooting" section, it gives instructions for flashing Roms. I believe the Sprint Lover's is flashed through hboot as it upgrades the radios to the current ones as well as flashing the Stock looking rom.
