Unhappy [Q] Error When Flashing ROMS

I have a Sprint HTC Evo 3D with HBOOT 1.58 running ICS. I managed to Unlock the Bootloader and get TWRP on it...but when I try flashing [ROM] CyanogenMod 11.0 - VILLUMINATI, it throws up an error...I admit, i've not tried any other ROM but that one seems to be the one that i want. I have re-downloaded it and get the same results. Do I need S-OFF? I think I still have S-ON.....I just got this phone so i'm very new to it....and I can't post in the thread about that ROM b/c of my low post count.....

You will need soff and to change your hboot to 1.50 or lower.

ICS needs 1.57 or 1.58
Anything else needs 1.50 or lower

Thanks for that...I watched a video on it, and maybe i can do it...this is the most "Extreme" method of "modding" a phone software.....The ROM i'm trying to install is 4.4.2 I think, so I need to keep it at 1.58 I assume for that?

NOW i got another problem. Trying to get the RUU file installed from a guide i found on here and i had to run that SetLowVer app or whatever its called and RUU Installer shows its 1.00.000.0 and trying to update to 2.89.651.2 but it fails every time!


EDIT: Got the RUU done, turns out I had to RELOCK the device

EDIT 2: I have S-OFF now! Now gotta figure out how to "downgrade" HBOOT

Did you figure it out?
If you have s off the hard part is done!

To change hboot all you need to do is flash a pg86img through bootloader
