How do you boot the EVO 3D into recovery? I tried the method used for the EVO 4G with no luck. I also can't find the answer anywhere.

Does fast boot have to be turned off to do this?

Setings/power/fastboot. Uncheck fastboot then it will work.

You can also simply pick Reboot off of the power menu and as soon as the bottom leds turn off, hold the volume down rocker.

If your phone starts vibrating like crazy then you held volume down too soon, but it will still go.

But yea, this is an side effect of fast boot, because the phone is doing a warm boot not a cold boot. Or of course you can pull the battery, but that can be a pain.

Because you don't have a custom recovery, because the phone is not rooted

OK, now I feel like a noob. I rooted my HTC EVO 4G the first day I got it, so I guess I was spoiled and I assumed backup/restore was built into the phone already.

So the red triangle upon recovery boot is normal?

Yes, its normal. If you were to return your evo 4g to complete stock, and tried to boot into recovery, you'd end up with the same result
