Unhappy [Q] HTC Evo 3D Bootloop

Okay, I got my Evo 3D with 4.0.4 ICS and HBOOT 1.58.....I Downgraded the HBOOT to 1.40 and have S-OFF....Now i'm in a bootloop....I can't get to the OS and when I try to install a Recovery (it has 4EXT on it but I want TWRP so I can install a different ROM....I CURRENTLY have Negalite BluRom but it bootloops at the 3D splash screen)....I can't do the Fastboot Flash UnlockToken b/c it errors out, I can't flash Recovery b/c it says FAIL....

Can you flash boot.img from fastboot? If you can flash the boot.img from Negalite zip. Can you enter 4ext recovery? Try reinstalling the drivers.

I have no clue how I got it to work....I just kept playing around with stuff in Recovery....wiped cache a few times, wiped Dalvik Cache and rebooted....even then it kept bootlooping, i did it again...even re-installed the ROM, wiped Cache, etc....it FINALLY worked.....pretty much EVERY ROM i have tried so far works.....trying to find one "just right"....thats the joys of Android though

Exclamation stucked perhaps at bootloop

hi,
i am new to rooting but i tried and succeed and now i really want to try yas4 rom, and i also downloaded and

installed successfully but after rebooting my device, it sucked at htc logo, i tried different kernel (mirage

& howpathetic) via aroma modifications but no use, perhaps device is having bootloop.

my device details are

htc evo 3d x515m, GSM, fingerprint asia/india
shooter_u, hboot 1.53.0007, radio 11.25.3504.06_M, OpenDSP-v02.6.0.2226.00.0202, unlocked & rooted but s-on
(as this rom is s-on compatible, so i didn't try of s-off it)

if anybody knows, how to install this rom, kindly help.

thanks in advance.

What recovery are you using? Download this and flash it from fastboot. Enable 4ext smartflash and reflash the rom. If it doesn't boot again extract the rom and flash the boot.img from fastboot. If you have any question quote me to get notified.

Smile it works.

a big thanks bro, it worked. I earlier used clockworkmod recovery but as you suggested when i used 4ext recovery with smartflash enabled, it worked in first try, thanks a lot.

Hi, I have a HTC EVO 3D, HBOOT- 1.53.007 that's stuck on bootloop after I tried to install PACMAN. I didn't get the S-OFF...don't know if this could have contributed to that.

Install a stock 4.0.3 (sense/aosp themed etc) with smartflash on at 4ext recovery and your phone will boot normal.
