      Did you install drivers? Check Device Manager.

        No I did not. I read that if you do it in a Mac you don’t have to.

        • HTC Evo 4G Hacks says:

          sorry my bad, then make sure your phone is in “charge only” mode.

            2- enabled USB debugging.

  11. Mike Noble says:

    Can you confirm that this method will not work for 651.1 710RD? It’s kind of confusing since it has the older version number (651.1) but it came after 651.3.

    • Mike Noble says:

      wait, nevermind, dumb question. the last version was 1.22.651.3, not 2.13.651.3… what i get for not reading the whole number.
