Unable to boot EVO, unable to connect to PC for RUU

Greetings all. I am very sad right now. I have always considered myself an advanced user. I have Unlocked many WinMo phones with Hard-SPL and flashed many ROMs. With WinMo I have never been stuck for more than 20 minutes before figuring out how to fix it.

However, this EVO is killing my ego. I have HBOOT - 2.02.0000 and Radio - 2.15.00.09.01.

I was following the steps in the [highly confusing] EVERYTHING EVO post by FastRX8. I read the FAQ, downloaded the zips ("EVO-recovery" and "Full Root Files") and, according to the post's instruction, skipped to Section 7 because I have hboot 2.02. All was going well until step 7.9 when the device tried to load the PC36IMG.zip. The error was RADIO_V2 Fail-PU, but each load was successful after that. At the very end it said that the Update Failed and a prompt to reboot.

After that, when I tried to boot, it would get stuck at a screen with a little Icon of a phone with a large red /!\ on top. I held Volume Up and then pressed Power, and followed the prompt to clear storage/factory reset.

The result is (as previously stated) hanging on the initial white splash screen.

This is the most trouble I have had with any device, ever. I would appreciate any and all help that someone could provide for me.

Thank you.

Right now if I simply boot the device, it hangs at the white "htc EVO 4G" splash screen until I remove the battery (I waited 10+ minutes to be sure).

Re: Unable to boot EVO, unable to connect to PC for RUU

I re-downloaded it and the MD5 hashes match. No corrupt download. The guide has outdated links and also seems to have portions of it copied and pasted from outdated XDA guides. This makes me worried that I may have flashed an older, incompatible image.

I might just take it to the sprint store and have them help me. I haven't actually voided my warranty [yet]...

Re: Unable to boot EVO, unable to connect to PC for RUU

try this
[ROOT] ~~~ HTC EVO - Universal Auto Root ~~~ v1.9.4 (12/22/10) - xda-developers

if you need a flash-able ruu go here so you can get back to stock and try to root again
Supersonic Shipped ROMs - xda-developers

they are being uploaded now

Install Amon_RA Recovery. There are a bunch of links to it on XDA.
If you are S = Off, flash a Rom like Sprint Lover's All in One.

Went and looked at the Link. Interesting but I am not going to run a batch file to root my phone. I am rooted the old step by step way but I just bought my daughter an EVO for Christmas and want to root her phone. She is HBoot 2.02 004 phone with 3.7.
I don't mind their method but I want to do it one step at a time. I want to know exactly where it jams if it does. I am the kind of Dad that could not watch my girl get her shots. Jamming her phone would be worse.

But thanks for the link. I will use the procedure but in manual mode.

Re: Unable to boot EVO, unable to connect to PC for RUU

Red, I do not think you are as bad off as you think. You may be over it now. As long as you can make it into HBoot, you are save-able. It is those rare cases where someone cannot get into HBoot or see the phone via ABD that I that I get concerned. Everyone gets out alive.
Just give us a chance.
