Unable to Flash Custom Recovery (TWRP 1.1.1,)
I have an EVO 4G phone that I am trying to root. It has hboot 2.18 and I followed some instructions for that hboot. I used the htc unlock bootloader and it is now unlocked.
I trying to follow this procedure from teramrevolation: http://teamrevolation.forumotion.com...ing+hboot+2+18
I am running into difficulty when I get to where I flash a custom recovery. I have put a custom unloader zip file on my SD card. When I enter: adb reboot bootloader the phone turns off and the bootloader opens. I then select boot and that changes the menu to include recovery and I then select recovery. The phone reboots and I get a triangle and an exclamation mark. I then press the volume up and power buttons to get the android system recovery <3e>. I have the followin options listed:
Reboot system now
Apply update from sdcard
Wipe data/factory reset
Wipe cache partition
Also lower on the screen in yellow text it says: E:Can't open /cache/recovery/command
If I select "Apply update from sdcard" and press the power button it doesn't install the update it gives the following message and reboots:
Success rebooting by reason: oem-00...
I looked around in some forums for the message above and there was a suggestion to enter the following commands, but, doesn't explain what to do with them:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot devices => which returns HT0A3HL06966 fastboot
fastboot getvar cid => which returns cid: SPCS_001
I take it getting the cid is important, but, I don't know what to do with it???
