Whenever I try to boot into recovery to install a ROM, it automatically does the HBoot. I don't have the option to go to Recovery. What did I do wrong?

Sounds like you need to press the other volume button when you boot into recovery. I can't remember which one is correct...volume up or volume down...try the opposite of what you are doing now.

Can I delete the PC36IMG.zip file? I feel like that is the culprit.

Yes. I renamed mine, but you can delete it.

Yeah basically the bootloader will look for PC36IMG.zip every time you enter it so if it's there it will go through that process all over again. Either rename it or delete it and your problem will be solved.

I have flashed clockworkmod, but also dont see how to directly boot into it.

When I power-on, if I press down, it goes to hboot. It I press up, I think it goes to fastboot.


The only way I can get into it, is to use rom manager, or go hboot and then choose the recovery option.

Can someone tell me what the official buttons are?

You need to take the pc36img off your sd card or rename it. Then press volume down to recovery then power button. Will then boot to a black screen with a red triangle and a EVO in the background. Then run your batch file as admin from your Evo-Recovery file. You should now been in your Recovery Mode

Yes from HBoot you need to choose recovery (assuming you renamed pc36img). That is how I did it. Once you have a custom ROM installed on the phone, download ROM manager and flash the recovery from the app. Then use quickboot to boot to recovery if you need to. But installing custom ROMs from Rom Manager is easiest.
