Default [Q] Unlocking a relocked bootloader stuck gsm 1.49.0013

i seem to be stuck trying to unlock my evo 3d's bootloader again, i unlocked it, went through the procedure to downgrade, thus relocking the bootloader, then discovered the PG86IMG.zip thing i used was the wrong version or something, now i can't seem to unlock it again

this is wat it says in my bootloader

blah blah blah...
____________________
i've been trying >fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
but it's been getting stuck on "sending 'unlocktoken' <0KB>..._"

i've spent so much time looking up a fix of some sort but havent found any luck, would anyone be kind enough to give me some tips/help on this?

i want to eventually flash miui onto it cause i just naturally dont like stock roms for any phone really and ive found miui to be the best for me simply because of how they've layed stuff out on it

my is rooted too btw, and i've had no success flashing a custom recovery cause of a verify signature fail or something like that, im guessing cause S-ON is still well, ON lol

thanks heaps to anyone who can manage to help me out of this

Default unlocking bootloader

ths is where you need to start open cmd and typ fastboot get identifiertoken then it will display the token then you will copy and past into htc dev and then submit if you copyed it correctly you will get a confermation and the email will be sent you the next step open the email and download the unlock code and place it in the same folder that you have fastboot and adb in next step open cmd and typ fastboot flash unlock token unlock_code.ben now look at your evo and it should say unlock bootloader press volume up for yes and then press the power button and this will also reset the evo dont worry after this you will need to install a custom recovery i suggest 4ext for that on your evo open up your web browser and typ 4ext.net and then head over http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=22494488

i've already gone through that process in order to unlock the bootloader before, then i relocked it, and using the same Unlock_code.bin file I used to unlock it before, it won't unlock, should I go through the whole process from htcdev again?

You can flash the Rom of your choice but there is one very emportant thing and that is you have to flash a custom recovery check this web site out 4ext.net this is the best recovery and its easy to install you can download it using the web browser on your phone

I see that you've used the same unlock token of which you didn't have to I would delete the old one and get a new unlock token I've done that before and it works

Thanks jslim, got it unlocked now, as usual it hung on sending unlocktoken, I left it for awhile and it eventually went through

So u suggest I downgrade now if possible?

Also, if u don't mind, I have another problem,

I've tried to flash three different gsm roms since unlocking, AOKP, which hung on the HTC logo, then after restoring, miui 2.24.40 or something like that, which got past the HTC logo but, hung on the boot image, restored again and tried e3d light, which also qot stuck on the HTC logo, at present I'm still running stock

Any ideas?

nvm got it working! for those reading this post I had to download 4ext recovery and use one of the test versions in which smartflash is included, that enabled me to flash roms with s-on running leedroid 5.4 now and its awesome!
