How to Flash:

In order for this to work, the HTC Evo Shift 4G needs to be S-OFF. Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.

  1. Download the your choice of radio for the HTC Evo Shift 4G.
  2. Make sure the filename is exactly or it will not work and copy it to the same folder as adb (the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder).
  3. Connect the HTC Evo Shift 4G to the computer via USB.
  4. On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
    adb push /sdcard/<br />
    adb shell md5sum /sdcard/
    NOTE: The md5 should match up the provide the original download location. If not, redownload & try again.
    adb reboot bootloader
  5. The HTC Evo Shift 4G will reboot & usually boot into fastboot. Pressing the Power button will put the device into the bootloader.
  6. The bootloader will scan for the radio update. Once it finds the update, select Yes.
  7. Allow the bootloader to finish flashing the updated radio, and reboot the HTC Evo Shift 4G normally.
