    First off all credit goes to

    Okay I figure it out there was a issue with clockwork mod and myn's 2.2 so I erased everything including the stock rom so I was stuck on the boot screen I been up for todays tackling this issue and ran across this:

    How to unbrick your soft bricked Evo 4G
    I just wanted to make this thread for anyone that has soft bricked there HTC Evo 4G while trying to root the phone. So I have done this first hand and can say it works.

    OK so if you find your self at a black screen with a picture of a phone with a triangle and exclimation point, you have flashed a bad ROM. When I done this the first time I thought the phone was done for. After some help from a member on here, thefredelement, I recovered my phone. I will give you the simple steps how to recover your phone from this.

    Its very simple!

    Download the RUU zip (make sure its the zip file) file you need here.
    Index of /evo/stock/RUU/




    Once downloaded, rename the zip file to PC36IMG

    Mount your SD card to your computer. (Take SD card out of phone and use adapter to mount to your computer)

    Place the file to the root of the SD card.

    Reboot your phone into hboot.

    Your phone will scan for the PC36IMG zip. This will take a few mins to upload the zip. It will then ask if you would like to update. Hit volume up rocker to install the update.

    This will now install the stock RUU that you downloaded.

    Now you can try to root again or not take another chance.









    If you experience this problem once from rooting, I would urge you to try unrevoked 3 flashing tool to root your HTC device. I will give you my brief description on how to do so. This also is a very easy procedure to do.

    Visit
    unrevoked


    and click on your device.

    Download the unrevoked 3 file from the site.

    Once downloaded to your computer as reflash_package (an exe file) plug your phone into your computer. Double click the exe file to open the unrevoked 3 application.

    From there it will run a script that will root your phone and flash unrevoked forever and clockworkmod custom recovery to your phone. It will reboot your phone twice, with the last time rebooting into the recovery to where you can make a backup which is highly recommended.

    You are now fully rooted with superuser permissions and able to flash custom roms.









    OK so you need to take your phone into Sprint for a repair. We all know they will not do anything with a rooted phone. So as an easy way to unroot the phone is once again simple.


    Follow this link:
    [GUIDE] Return to stock after using Unrevoked Forever






    Thanks goes out to thefredelement for all the help in my original thread and for the links to the RUU downloads.
