Took a flyer on a $15 evo 4g looks like I overpaid, anyone have bootloop recovery not available brick?
I've tried recovery/roms pushed from fastboot and from zip updates and the same thing boot screen for a sec black bootscreen again reboot. Pwr vol+ works but recovery is will not come up, wipe avail but not factory reset choice. I've pushed various recommended recovery and boot images, and they all say success but have zero effect. I'm guessing it's that s-on is on but with out recovery I'm not having any luck, any ideas?

So when you use the PC36IMG to flash a recovery what happens? Any error messages or failures? From what you have here looks like only a stock recovery is installed.

The bootloader should boot scan the file and ask you if you want to upgrade. Does this happen for you?

Everything acts like it works, blue bar installing from a zip or pushing from fastboot gives "success" but they are not actually being installed as far as I can tell. I'm not sure if it's because it s-on? I got root with the htcdev method but getting s-off for this version is pretty murky the guide from this just mentions downgrading and a link but doesn't give clear what/how to downgrade and if a cust rec won't flash I doubt downgrading will either.. "Fastboot device" sees the phone but "adb device" doesn't, is adb supposed to use the "bootoader driver", even though I tried switching the driver still did not allow adb to see it I've never found a clear explanation of the diff drivers offered?..

What recovery version are you using? I highly recommend the Smelkus recovery for this particular device.

Thanks, but I've passed this on to the next over confident ebayer, hope he has more skillz, btw I tried smelkus with no effect, other than getting root I don't think anything else actually did anything I fb flashed at least 6 diff. recovery img's flashed the boot, unzipped the stock image and did "flash all", Zip updated with various recovery imgs of full stock, cyanogen and some 4.0 based installs and while most all them said "success" as far as I can tell nothing actually changed., hopefully they next guy needs it for parts..
