I am having Problems unrooting htc evo

I Rooted my phone a few months ago. I realize if your phone is rooted u can not do the updates for your evo phone. I am on android version 2.2/ software # 3.29651.5. I downloaded ruu supersonic sprint stock with the same software #. I connect phone to usb and comp 32bit windows 7 dell insperion 1501. It goes thru the process just fine till it gets to the bootloader part. It makes the phone black with htc logo. On comp screen it says rebooting to bootloader and then waiting for bootloader. It does that for bout 3min then i get an error 171 connection error. Its connected, there r no problems with the connection. The screen on phone is stuck in black with htc logo on it. I diconnect from comp and get this white screen that says supersonic evtz-3 ship s-off
hboot-0.97.000
microp-041f and sum other stuff. What am i doing wrong? Why can i not go back to stock?

What method did you use to root it? unrevoked? The s-off means it is still rooted.

Re: I am having Problems unrooting htc evo

What can't you update (with a flash) that you can with stock?

One ROM I just tried (I forget if it was Sprint Lovers or Myn's) offered a ROM that updated radio etc. too.

I'm running NonSense now, pretty nice. Not sure about battery yet though. I had good battery life on stock AFTER a few cycles and shutting a few things off.

I would stay routed and simply flash an updated radio or flash a rom with the most current radio.

No real reason to un root unless you are taking your phon into a Sprint Service center for repairs

There are 100% up to date ROMs all over this place. You do not have to UnRoot to go to 3.7/1.9!!

Install SPrint Lover's All-In-One.

Re: I am having Problems unrooting htc evo

well i used unrevoked but i figured it out yesterday. I found a file pc36img that fixed my problem. I don't know why i couldn't get any of the sprint updates while my phone was rooted, i just couldn't. I could down load the updates but every time i tried to install them it failed. I was only doing it for the updates. I unrooted it now but if i decided to root it again i will know. Thanks all

Re: I am having Problems unrooting htc evo

I have never been able to update via OTA since rooting. That goes back to EClair days. I would always get the Triangle thing. I don't even try anymore.
