Don't use ClockworkMod. Also, smelkusMOD
isn't linked to any particular ROM; it should work fine.
I renamed your TWRP file to PC36IMGG.zip and ran hboot. I didn't check when I started it, but, it was only a couple minutes after your post. It said parsing for quite a long time.
Also when I went to the Smelkus links and they are the same files I had tried earlier where zip files also got stuck at parsing. They all had ROM names associated with them like ReLoaded, AOKP, etc. So I figured they also had a ROM. I did try the smelkus AOKP img file using fastboot and I was able to flash it. I think I recall seeing that custom recoveries have to be installed with fastboot now that I think of it.
Anyway, the phone continues to behave the same as before. It makes a startup sound and gets the to yellow 4G on the white background and stays there for awhile and then goes black. I had it in my pocket or with me in the car for a couple of hours now and I can hear it cycling and every time I checked right after the sound it was the yellow EVO 4G screen. I didn't notice if the lock bar on a black screen showed up as the try with the other recovery app.
I thought I saw that you could make an img file from a zip file, but, I see it only works the other way. If you can provide the img version of your TWRP recovery app I'll try that too.
Is there some log file that might show what is happening?
