    When I do the fastboot flash recovery my computer just says waiting on device. The steps in the other tut on how to rot the phone all went well until after I told it Y to install clockwork which it did nothing. I tried taking the SU zip file and unzipping them to my sd card. This let me install Super user with no problem but then im stuck. I go to ROM manager and it says my phone isnt rooted, what do i do now? my main concern is gettin free tethering.

    • omar says:

      Ok i got it to say sending Recovery like in the video and then it stops.. i had to keep deactivating my easytether app to make it get to this screen. I also uninstalled SU and the systems folder that i manually installed

  13. Niko says:

    When I do the “fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-” it just sits there “waiting for device”.
    and it just sits there

    • philippe says:

      Remove the battery, the put it back, then reboot the phone using power and lower volume buttons while the phone is plugged into the computer. The program should detect the device.

        Do you have to unroot and start all over? I am getting the same.

Please help!!??? What should we do?

  21. ionthedemon says:

    I’m having some problems, i rooted my phone fine, it went into recovery and installed the rom fine, but now for some reason it does not want to flash the recovery anymore, I’ve tried clockwork app, then flashed manually like on this video. So I was wondering if I’m doing anything wrong, first time i rooted an evo 3d
