E: update failed. Check /sdcard/soff.log.
E: error in /data/local/unrevoked-forever.zip
(status 42)
Installation aborted.
/tmp/recovery.log was copied to /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log. please open ROM manager to report the issue.

Help, what should I do?


Edit: I am rooted. I have superuser app, but in Hboot it still shows S-On. I also checked and I have the most current radio version.

I had the same Error messages and apparent failure of unrevoked3. Im still S-on, although I have the superuser icon installed. Having tried to find out if I have super-user rights in a different way other than going of S-on vs S-off I tried the free wireless tethering app, which requires superuser rights, and having installed it and used it I guess I can say I'm rooted, at least partially.....

I didn't really want to do anything more that tethering so I'm happy, but without trying to backup / install new ROMS I doubt I will ever know just how rooted my device really is.......

Device: HTC EVO 4G
Download from unrevoked.com official website: v3.22
Radio baseband versions:2.15.00.09.01
Software: 3.30.651.3

I didn't see the black screen with words on it - ClockworkMod Recovery 2.5.0.1. And the information page in mac os said,

"Internal error: misc"

Can anyone help me?

MANY MANY THANKS!!!

You should read previous pages!!!! but here it goes..... your phone can not be rooted with UNREVOKED cuz it has software 3.30....

Sorry but you gonna have to wait for the guys @ UNREVOKED to come out with something for ur phone.

And again..... PLEASE PEOPLE R E A D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just received my White HTC Evo 4G, will this root method be applicable to my phone? It came with 2.2 loaded already on it and it is hardware version 0003.

I would like to try and do this now if possible, a quick response is greatly appreciated!

Since you just received your EVO, I would say no you cannot use this method because you would have the newer HBOOT version. HBOOT version 2.02 or 2.10 are currently no supported by unrevoked, the dev team is working on it. To check your HBOOT version, power off your phone and restart by holding VOL DOWN and POWER. When you are at the white screen with the skating Androids at the bottom, near the top you should see your HBOOT version.

The answer is probably no, but you need to check your Hboot to be sure. Power off the phone, then when it's off, hold the down volume button and turn it back on while holding the down volume. This will kick you to the white bootloader screen. If it says HBoot 2.02 or 2.10 near the top, then it won't work for you.
