Default Can't boot into recovery.

no space left on device. It's the error I get when trying to flash the recovery onto my evo 4g since the rom manager recovery does not boot up. All i get is the image of the smartphone with the triangle. How do i fix this?

1) Does your phone have the latest update?
2) What root method did you use?
3) Have you unlocked NAND?

The devil is in the details

+1 doesn't look like you have done part 2 to unlock nand.

Something similar happened to me and it was because I used the wrong pcimg during part 2 of root. I accidentally used the first pcimg instead if the engineering build so when I went to flash a recovery it gave me a similar error

I believe doing that would mean NAND won't be unlocked
