[GUIDE] Unroot your HTC unlocked EVO 3D
I have noticed a lot of people asking how to unroot their 3d and return back to stock after unlocking with HTCDEV. Here's how:
Step 1: Download the RUU for your phone:
GSM: GSM RUUs
(There are more GSM RUUs than CDMA, so here's all of them.)
Rogers RUU link is here.
Step 2: Place the PG86IMG.zip (CDMA- GSM will be similar) on the root of your sdcard.
Step 3: Reboot to recovery and wipe everything (Dalvik, cache, data, system, factory reset)
Step 4: Plug in your phone and reboot to bootloader via ADB
adb reboot bootloader
Step 5: Boot into Hboot and allow the RUU zip to flash to the phone.
Step 6: Boot into fastboot
Step 7: Relock your bootloader
Setp 8: Reboot.
Note: Your bootloader will say *** RELOCKED *** after you're done. That is how your carrier and HTC will know you've unlocked. There is no way to avoid this yet.
***** Make sure you put the CORRECT
RUU image on you sdcard. If you have Sprint
, if not, you're GSM
. Don't mix the two up.
If you want to unlock your phone again after relocking, boot into fastboot and type:
fastboot flash Unlock_Code.bin
That's assuming you still have the Unlock_code.bin. If you don't, you'll have to re-do all the steps on HTCDEV
