Anyone got a replacement from sprint in the past couple days or so? If so what Hboot did it have, and was it a refurb? I am talking about via mail, not from a store. Unless maybe the store ordered it for you. Am I leaving any scenarios out? lol I could care less about a refurb, just want to be able to root with Alpha ;)

Thanks

I am not worried so much about a refurbished as I am the 1.50 hboot. The Evo 3d.is cool and all but without custom kernel it may as well be stock. I guess if worse comes to worse we can buy one from eBay and sell our replacements!

I got my tracking info, says shipment weighs .60 lbs, my original shipment weighed 1.30 lbs. I got a REFURB :eek: Its OK as long as it is Alpha approved, lol. Oh and no green hue, no dead pixels, no overheating, no tilted screen, did I leave anything out? Oh, yeah, NO LIGHT BLEED! lmao

I got a replacement last Friday.
1.40 bootloader!
##786# says it is new, not refurbished.
It does, however, randomly reboot 2x a day or more. Once it starts rebooting, only a clean shutdown will atio it from recurring every 5 minutes.
It is more stable than what it replaced, but not stable enough.

Really, did it come with battery, back, book, and all that?

Looks like you flashed over something you shouldn't have. If you can post the updater script I will be able to tell you which one it was but unfortunately you'll still need to get it replaced.

Also make sure your kitchen is up to date, the pre evo 3d versions didn't know which partitions to use and will set it to the wrong one.

I got mine through sprint's insurance. It was the "mail it to your house then put the old one in the included prepaid envelope" thing.
It was a phone and back plate only...no battery, no memory card, no charger, no retail packaging.

Got mine about a hour ago, came with 1.40 Hboot. Phone is also brand new and I dont see any issues, yet. It came like the above post, a phone and a back, nothing more. I did S-off before activating that way I avoid error 16, or at least it should.


Chat with sprint for activation went smoothly, nandroided and loaded my back up on new phone. It's like a bad dream and miss it over, lol.

Awesome! We lucked out, in a few weeks all of these will be 1.50, though I read last night that kernel can be flashed by using fastboot.
