Default Newly Rooted EVO Shift

The process worked for me. I used Visionary. Also, I kept getting the error saying my fone was not connected properly to HTC Sync, which I ignored.

I did not uninstall SuperUser after I pushed the hack and I went right into trying to permroot...

So when I rebooted after that, I went right to terminal and tried to su root, which was of course denied. That was my check to see if the root took, which it had not because I had not deleted SuperUser prior to attempting permroot.

I installed the Clockwork ROM Manager and did a backup or two.

Got tethered up (using now, BTW). The Hero got real hot... this one is still cool to the touch, actually warmed up more when rooting.

Gonna figure out what to do next.

Thanks to all who helped get to this point!

Default Works great

I had to reboot a few times even though the recovery said S-OFF. Eventually i got z4root to get the job done. For some reason visionary+ would temp root and then refuse to do the perm-root. Flashed CM7 stable, everything works, but gps doesn't work for me, don't know if its my fault tho, or a bug, or my bad luck XP

Could someone explain step 1 and 3 for me if I'm using android terminal emulator. I tried it but nothing happened. My device is temprooted. I download the file into the download folder. I use root explorer to extract it... where?? I tried a couple places even the root folder (Its not in SD card) then once its good how do I check the md5 from the terminal. I type Su to get permission then what? The string in the post doesn't seem to do anything no matter how I type it. Or maybe I just don't know the command. I'm fairly new to this kinda thing. :/

The root of your sd card is in /sdcard
Thats where you extract the files into. Once you do that, the commands should work.

If not, you need to be more descriptive with what's going on when you do it. I very much doubt they do nothing, unless you're doing something completely wrong. They should be spitting out error messages.

There are multiple things that you do a md5check on. You gotta be more specific on what doesnt match.

If its one of the files you downloaded... redownload the file. You probobly got a bad download.

If its one of your post-flash pulls for testing, reflash and try again.

And again, be more descriptive about where you're having problems, people would have an easier time helping. Just say which step you're doing, where you're getting stuck, etc.

Ok, this problem just started. I have root access. Android terminal emulator has superuser permission but when I check the md5sum. /sdcard/shift/hboot_original.bin it tells me permission denied
