      hii there…problem solved, i just turn off the bluetooth as soon as possible i can…then my evo stop restarting.

      the next questions are :
      – how to turn on bluetooth without any restarting (i think this is the same with bootloop CMIIW)
      – what is the different of TWRP an 4ext for installing (flashing CMIIW) ROM
      – what is HTC Dumlock use for ?
