The problem:
-My evo 3d keeps restarting at random times and when it restarts it sometimes dies during the booting up process, and i have to put in a new battery because when it boots up with the old battery it just says its at 10% or less.

this has happened a lot. PLEASE HELP

The specs:

Hboot 1.4
rom: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1620318 (Newts one)


please help. this is really irritating me.

I had the very same problem (on RC3). I later remembered that I just upgraded the radio to the latest version. Downgrading back to the radio in the 1.13 RUU (v0530) resolved the issue. My battery life dropped tremendously on the new radio as well.

On a side note, have you tried other ROMs since then? If it's happening in all ROMs it could be an issue there as well.

Here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1193101

Under downloads you'll see this: From the 1.13.651.7 OTA/RUU. Click the CDMA link (for 0.97.10.0530). Place this file on the root of your SD card (must be PG86IMG.zip - case sensitive!) and power on phone into bootloader mode (vol down + power). It'll verify and ask you to flash.

Be very careful doing this because you can potentially brick your phone if you don't know what you're doing. There are more detailed instructions at the thread at the beginning of this post. Post back here if you have any issues so I can help you out!

Good luck!

EDIT: If you have access to a computer, follow the "How To Flash" instructions at the link so you can verify the MD5 to make sure the download isn't corrupted.

i have the current radio 0.97.00.0518, flashing this will be safe, right?

also, will it erase my phone data?

The radio version you have is from RUU 1.11 which is one of the oldest ones for this device. I'm curious to know how it's still there unless you've never done an OTA/Hboot downgrade.

It will not erase your handset, only updates the radio software which is a completely separate part of your phone. Just follow the instructions and read through them a few times. I've upgraded/downgraded my radio several times following those instructions.

If it restarted after the radio update: flash the 2.17 RUU then downgrade hboot to 1.4 -OR- flash the 2.17 zip and remove the hboot file.

If it restarted during the radio update: (this is bad). The problem could be with a faulty battery. But that is the least of your problems now.

I'll get the link the 2.17 downloads for you. just a sec..

EDIT#1: Here is a link to the PG86IMG.zip for 2.17 containing the latest software and firmware. Delete the HBOOT file from the zip using WinRAR, 7Zip, etc. and rename zip file to PG86IMG.zip, move to root of SD and flash.

EDIT#2: Here is the link to the actual RUU (run in Windows then do HBOOT downgrade): http://goo.im/stock/shooter/ruu/RUU_...304_signed.exe

Just found this while helping someone else. Freeza posted an all-in-one firmware update package for those on Hboot 1.4. This updates you to all the firmware from the 2.17 package without losing root or S-OFF. This does NOT flash a ROM, just updates the firmware.
