Note: Make sure you root your Evo 4G first!

  4. curious says:

    i went back to 2.2 from 2.3, then used unrevoked 3 to root again, then installed custom rom.

  5. james says:

    thanks for the reply man
    how exactly do you revert back to 2.2?

  6. curious says:

    download the RUU file first, then do the following steps:

    1. Reboot your HTC Evo 4G into bootloader mode by turning the phone off then pressing the power button while holding down the volume down button.
    2. Select “Fastboot” and hit power button.
    3. Connect your Evo 4G to your computer and make sure “Fastboot USB” comes on the Evo 4G.
    4. Just download the RUU file and run.
    5. That’s it!

  7. curious says:

    James: I see ppl are having problems with the RUU file. If u give me ur email address, i’ll try to send u a copy of the one i have. I haven’t had any problems with mine.

        Try installing another ROM or download the ROM again, sometimes ROM downloads can become corrupt.

    • HTC Evo 4G Hacks says:

      Try going to Settings->Power and unchecking Fastboot. When that’s enabled, you can’t get into recovery.

  12. Frenche says:

    Just how much rom can you install at one time can u run more then one rom on your phone

    • HTC Evo 4G Hacks says:

      You can install one rom at a time but you can use the backup/restore function to switch between your ROMs.

  13. Charles says:

    After I flashed the ev0 4g with the gingerbread-deck rom, everything went well
    it all works except for one thing… where is the connect to pc ?
    it worked when i downloaded prior to flashing, after flashing i think it set to sync
    and I dont know where to set it back for drive storage so i can transfer files back and forth.

    I went through dev settings and the regular settings .. notta

    if anyone can point to where i can make that setting change, would appreciate it

  31. Babar says:

    Hi. I have unlocked with the htcdev method. I’m just weary of flashing a custom rom and needed clear directions. I have the hboot 2.18. Now my question is I’ll have to install the rom using fastboot since I don’t have s-off. Do I flash the rom and then kernel separately if the kernel is different? Just need some steps to install roms and kernels with flashboot since that’s the only way I can do it. Thanks.

  32. Babar says:

    Hi again,

    Also wanted to add that I have Amon Ra.

  33. Jason says:

    All three zip links are down.

  34. Sammy says:

    ^ yes..how are we supposed to download them??

  35. Ryan says:

    Have you flashed any of odjdub’s roms “ODJDub HD Bliss 3.5” “HD Express Sense 3.0”, where you have to partition the sd card?

    Do you think that would be a worthwhile “how to” video? Cause I know Im super confused lol

  36. Thames says:

    You are my hero. I had a lot of trouble getting root for me Evo4G. It was such a headache until I found your root vids and this one to get CM7.

    Thanks so much, man!
