PLEASE NOTE, AT THE TIME OF WRITING THIS THREAD, THE ROM MANAGER INSTALLATION OF CLOCKWORKMOD HAS SERIOUS ISSUES. YOU DO NOT HAVE A WORKING RECOVERY EVEN THOUGH IT FLASHES THE RECOVERY SOFTWARE. SEE XDA THREAD showthread.php?t=1695967 CHECK YOUR CLOCKWORKMOD BEFORE YOU DO ANY MODS
SUMMARY OF FIX --> USE FASTBOOT TO RELOAD WORKING RECOVERY --> ATTEMPT ROM INSTALL, FAILED --> RELOCK BOOTLOADER --> RUN APPROPRIATE RUU...PHONE IS NOW BACK TO STOCK CONDITION WORKING GREAT. XDA WILL SAVE YOU FROM YOURSELF
-Rooted phone with regawMOD. Everything fine.
-Install rommanager -- decide to flash clockworkmod via rom manager, since I'm used to that recovery in the past.
-Use phone for 2 days.
-See thread about editing build.prop for links related to apple lawsuit.
-used root explorer file manager, backup build.prop, edit build.prop, HIT THE PERMISSIONS BUTTON ON THE FOLDER TO R/W and then back to R/O (DAMN DAMN DAMN)...reboot phone. Phone boots HTC white screen and then just black. Won't boot android.
What I tried to fix?
-Thinking sucks, but no biggie, I reboot and go to recovery clockworkmod 22.214.171.124 DOES NOT WORK...go search, find more forum posts about this version for our phone not working...DAMMIT CLOCKWORKMOD!
-Go to "Factory Reset", who cares at this point, just reset everything? Nope...white HTC screen, boots into clockworkmod v126.96.36.199 -- again, broken worthless recovery, no menus do anthing. Why did I forsake you TWRP?!?!
Now I'm gun shy on just hopping down and trying new things without consulting you guys first. What are my options? Don't want to make this worse.
EVO 4GLTE, rooted.
Screwed permissions and/or build.prop system folder
clockworkmod recovery version is worthless
Afraid to go forward.
