Can the USB fix be done even if the phone is not rooted?
Here's my problem, I was trying to root my HTC evo 4g for the first time using the TacoRoot method. Somewhere in the middle something went wrong and I had to pull back. Since I didn't finish the process, I don't think it's actually rooted. I thought I'd try again today but this morning I discovered the phone won't recognize my SD card and USB port isn't functioning. When the phone is on I can't charge it even with the wall charger. I can yank the battery and leave it off and it *seems* like it's charging. (I'll find out more later)
What can I do?? Help!!
EDIT: Ok, so I was able to get the SD card back working. Still can't get the USB fix to work since I'm not rooted. I know the idea is get temp rooted via z4root but from what I've read z4root no longer works for Evo 4Gs with the hboot 2.18 and the OTA from earlier this year. Is there something I'm missing?? Obviously, I'm a newb at all of this so any help or guidance is appreciated!
That should be able to tell you if you are rooted. If not you might try using z4root again this time use the permanent root setting. Keep in mind(From my experience) that you can unroot the device using z4root even if you choose perm. option. Hope that helps.
