Hello guys I'm looking to get some help, and a point in the right direction as to what I need to do to flash roms on my Evo 3d. Currently the phone is rooted and is S-off with an unlocked boot loader. The boot loader is version 1.58. The recovery I using is 4EXT. I have tried flashing several roms including Evervole, Pacman, and the newer cm11 port based of ASAP rocky (I'm not sure of the name). Every time I flash the roms through recovery I data wipe and factory reset like you should do. The roms will install, but I can never get them to boot. They will just go to the logo screen and fail to load up. They don't boot loop they just fail to start. I have left them running for more than 10 minutes several times and no luck. What is the issue, and what am I'm doing incorrectly? Thank you for your help!!!

Evo 3d on sprint. I flashed the stock ruu in order to do the s-off wire trick. I have a back up of that in my recovery. I just did that today. If I redo the ruu will I loose the s-off?

The roms you tried to flash need hboot 1.50

1.58 will only work for ICS roms

You do not need to do the ruu again

Okay thank you for that. Is there anyway I can downgrade my h boot? I tried using a file that you place on the root of your sd card and boot into the boot loader and it flashes it in order to downgrade the h boot. But the Rom still will not boot.

You need hboot 1.50 or lower
The op will usually say what hboot to run.

After you change hboot
Reboot to recovery
Wipe all partitions except SD card
Reboot recovery
Then wipe again
Now flash new ROM / gapps
Reboot and enjoy

Make sure you move or rename the pg86img.zip when you are done, it will save you a headache later
