I'd actually prefer not unrooting the phone since I listed it as rooted/unlocked. I was hoping I could just fix whatever is going on here. Is this just how this ROM behaves if you do a wipe? if so I'll just throw another rom on there.Try the unroot methods listed in this forum. You can go back to stock. Then let them mess with the phone.

Why wouldn't a factory wipe work on a rooted phone?
I'm about to sell my evo and I want to wipe the phone. Everytime I do a factory reset the phone stops working. It boots up and gets to the point where I can see the home screen. But aside from the background there's nothing on the home screen. None of the buttons work other then the power button, and that only wakes the screen. I can't turn off the phone except by pulling the battery. The only way I can wipe the phone is to wipe and then reinstall the ROM. Any idea why it's doing this and how to fix it?

Thanks, although just missed it by a few minutes - just sold the phone. So now it's someone else's problem should be fine though since it's got the stock rom on there now.A page back there is a fix for this..
I'm on an OG Evo 4G, and have been flashing ROMs since I got the phone in Sept '10. Every ROM I've tried would eventually crap out on me (some issue or another would pop up; either right away or after some weeks of use). The only exception so far has been MikG. I seriously haven't had a single random reboot, force close, etc for maybe 3 months straight. This thing has been unbelievably solid on my particular phone. Thanks so much for developing this!
I do have two questions however, neither of which are particularly pressing...
1. I'm using the HTC lockscreen. Is there a way to replace the Mail shortcut with a G-Mail shortcut instead?
2. This next question is the only mini-issue I've encountered...I'm unable to save pictures from a text. If someone sends you a text with a picture attached, you should be able to long-select the picture and save it to your SD card. I do get the option to save, but when I click it I get an error stating that I don't have enough memory left on my SD card. This is wrong as I definintely have room. Any idea how to resolve this?
Thanks a lot for any help :good:
Just loaded uw-v08-sbcnohavs.zip and ultimateRAMscript plus this to see how things go..
let it settle for a week and come back with some results.
Edits 1: So far seeing improvements, as I am a heavy user of the multi-tasking between 2x translations programs and a nasty little set of social programs called "Wechat" and "QQ". If they it weren't such a good programs for hooking up with Chinese (girl)friends I would rip them out. But as it is, this kernel and script is letting the phone switch and not worry about lag and also not getting the random FC of the translate programs.
As to Batt life.. as said above have loaded the script as well, and this morning pulled of the charger, used the phone on for reading XDA, checking the social scene in the above programs for an hour on the way to work.. and Batt didnt move off 100% until 1.5 hours later.. I am sitting @ 97% about 2 hours of being off the cord.. god I hope this keeps up ;-).
1. Click personalize, then choose the lockscreen you currently have, it should say apply and settings under it. Click settings and ir should have the 4 little icons and you can click one and re assign it with gmail.
As for 2, can't help ya there. Sorry

Thanks for the help. Unfortunately when I click Personalize, nothing happens because I'm using a different launcher (you have to be using Rosie I'm pretty sure). Mik's ROM has that whole "debloat" section, and I actually de-bloated Rosie since I never use it. You wouldn't happen to know how to get it back would you? When I re-check the Rosie option, it acts as if it's reinstalling it but it doesn't actually work. I suppose I can just reinstall the whole ROM...
