Default Constant Boot Loop and can't get to recovery

I was trying to flash my EVO to Boost mobile and this is where my trouble began. After I had went through the steps of flashing I had to reboot. Upon reboot I get a constant reboot. When I try to go to recovery it goes to the htc screen and then keeps rebooting. I have tried flashing clockwork...I have tried the PC36IMG.zip...I have tried many stock RUU's and none of them work. Has anyone ever heard of this because of flashing? I have a link to a vid I posted on youtube....

In your video you said you tried the latest ruu. In your video you state that it is version 3.30. The latest ruu is 3.70. I would try using that ruin first.

I might have said 3.30 but it was 3.70. As a matter of fact I have tried older and new ones and none of them help.

I have tried both and none of them have worked. Is one in your opinion better than the other?
