Hello friendly xda people!
I am tryng to unroot my evo because it's giving me some problems, I will hopefully be sending it back on monday. I have tried to use clockwork mod and amon ra recovery to flash the unrevoked forever s-on.zip file. My phone keeps telling me installation aborted. Is there an new s-on tool? or am I missing something? I followed the instructions in the un-root the evo forum of the development section.

Try it again, make sure you have the 2.15....11.19 radio, then try again. Also re download the s on tool, as it may be corrupt.

This epic reply brought to you by none other than my roxx'd out Evo.

How did you root your Evo? Unrevoked? Revolution? The unroot process is not the same for these two methods.

There is no way around it. To flash S-ON, you have to downgrade your baseband (radio) because 2.15.00.05.02 has been patched to not accept unrevoked.

You can go to

http://www.mediafire.com/?2pjq2dhjv6ntxnh

and download the 2.15.00.11.19 radio. Place on the root of your SD card and flash from your recovery.

ALSO, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT DURING A RADIO FLASH TO NOT PULL THE BATTERY IF THE PHONE APPEARS TO STICK, OR IT IS A SURE WAY TO BRICK IT. JUST LET THE PROGRAM DO ITS THING AND FINISH.

so I successfully flashed the radio and the s-on tool and when I was getting ready to mount the sd card. it would not mount through amon ra, It kept telling me sd card busy, so I rebooted. Now I have s-on and still have the superuser app. I was not able to flash the pcimg through hboot. Did I mess it up?

You have the radio s-on.
You're trying to unroot so now the last step is to download this:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VSFLE9CD

Rename it PC36IMG.zip. [Make sure it's NOT PC36IMG.zip.zip]

Boot into the bootloader and accept the update.

Ta-da. You're unrooted.
