That's funny. I just rooted my evo for the first time yesterday. It's working just fine too...
How can i downgrade my phone from 2.3 gingerbread to froyo 2.2?
for now u can pray
yep unfortunately, you can't downgrade your phone unless you have s-off. if you have s-on still then you will have to wait for an exploit to be found. please read the op for more info.
My old EVO just died on me today (continual reboots of doom, regardless of rom, kernal or anything I did). I got a replacement and imagine my joy to find out the rooted goodness I've enjoyed since the EVO launched has been yanked away.
I hope they get it open soon.
Chin up, the Dev's over at Unrevoked are working hard on finding an exploit.
im gettin anxious as hell lol...im tempted to just mess up the usb port on this new phone and hope when i take it in that i get a refurb with froyo on it lol...i swear i check this forum probably 30x a day if not more ;((( COME ON DEV'S IM PRAYIN FOR YALL!! lol
I think all the refurbs coming out have 2.3.3 on them as well so you would likely be stuck with a refurb with GB on it instead of a new one.
Correct. My HTC evo 4g came in the mail yesterday with 2.3.3. As soon as I turned it on after activation it had a firmware update. Just gonna chill till I hear it from this site!! It's always been my favorite, just never signed up to talk!!
Welcome to AF!!! I'm glad you stopped being a lurker and started posting.
Got a warranty replacement, brand new phone, already had the update.
I want my OMJ ROM back!!!
I know how you feel. I just turned in my rooted phone for a second time for the usb port problem at best buy. Hopefully they won't mess with my root.
Just had to turn in my 0003 evo because the ram gave out, constant reboots. Got a brand new 0004 in exchange. They really let QC go out the window for the new hardware it seems. Battery cover doesn't fit right, lots of backlight bleed....but above all, how did I ever stand Sense??? Waiting with baited breath alongside the rest of your guys for the smart people to figure this one out...
Sorry, you're most likely going to get a new phone. Best buy is doing a rapid exhange versus repairs, now that Evos are commonplace.
Broke my screen, expected a simple repair, nope new hardware with 2.3 installed.
I'm waiting like everyone else.
Sweat got under my screen, they replaced it for free, and yes hboot 2.16.. Been checking this forum daily. Can't wait to get my phone rooted and flash a better rom on this thing.
Are you serious. You should've made a complaint. I'm gonna raise hell if they do something like that. When I went in there he had given me the option to do a replacement which would take 3 to 5 days to receive a new phone, so I said no, just fix the usb port and do not modified the os at all. Now I'm thinking maybe I should get a external stand alone battery wall charger where you just charge the battery by it self and screw the usb port.
I found a rooted Evo on eBay. My days of sense crap are numbered!!! I'm going to hold onto this one till root is available because its new. So excited!!!
Have you tried OMJ's sense ROM? It incorporates elements of Sense 3.0. I was really fond of it . . . while I still had it.
Find it here.
As a father to a 7yo girl.... Thank you for giving me a reason to breath one more day... lmfao rofl
Thanks for the suggestion but I'm done w/sense based roms. I'm going back to VaelPak's asop. That being said I'll try his sense based gingerbread build when he releases it. I played with a 3D and a View in a sprint store. The lockscreen is cool but the launcher is the same blah!
Can I just cry about not being able to root yet?
My beloved, rooted G1 finally started to die at the same time the news broke about T-Mobile being bought by AT&T. That was enough to convince me to jump ship, switch carriers, and give in to a new phone.
I bought a pretty new EVO 4G and fell in love. And then realized that it can't be rooted yet because they sent me a phone with 2.3.3. *sobs*
I'd deal much better with it if the flippin' NASCAR program didn't exist. I have a deeply irrational loathing of all things NASCAR and I want the program to die a horrible, torturous death. Especially when it randomly pops up in my list of running. I assume that's not a big deal after the . . . 2.2??? update? But it still makes me mad to see it there.
Whats a dalvik cache? Also what are the benefits of installing custom ROMs after rooting the EVO?
FInally got the courage to root only to find out I can't root! Now I want to root to MIUI REALLY badly lol!
I just bought the EVO 4g a week ago. I know it is at s off. But my question is when I power phone off then do the power button plus volume down all I'm getting is a normal reboot. Does this sound correct for the state the phone is in. Or should I atleast get some kind of recovery screen ?
