Root Need help

Hello i just got a HTC Evo 4G used and is rooted. Is there away to get the phn back to stock and removing the root. I wanna get it connected and idk if there gona let me connect it cuz is rooted.

TIA.
Well, you shouldn't have an issue activating it...I wouldn't worry about removing root.
Try it, the worst they can say is no and then we can set you up with a stock rom at least, but I would say you should be fine.:)

Nice nice thanks guys.
Well can u guys guide me so i can install the ROM or somethinf?
Do you know what rom is on it?
menu/settings/about phone..should be listed in there somewhere, perhaps under mod? version or build number..
Or if you need a rom, we can provide that man!!!! Some awesome sense roms out there, namely MikG v3.11!!!!!

What does "ported" sense rom mean....(I'm still learning):D

Any of the sense 3.5 roms, Platty's 4.0 rom.....these roms are from a different carrier and will not allow sprint to activate the phone. Obviously any AOSP rom is the same.

Roms like Classic 1.0, MikG or Swagstr's 1.0 rom have the ability to update prl and profile update

o.k....I know you bought the phone rooted, are you familiar with flashing, booting into recovery or hboot etc, nandroid backups etc?
If so, we'll probably guide you to a good recovery, sense rom etc.

Lets try not to through out to much techno talk all this can be extremely intimidating for the beginner. First find out what the OP does know.

What is your technical experties on a scale of 1 - 5
5 being OH YEAH I'M A GOD
1 being um the calculator is still absolutely terrifying to me.

Then we can go from there

Haha i think i might say a 3-4? :b
I have a rooted ZTE WARP...i have changed my nandroid a couple of times and changed ROMS also lol...i dnt really knw that much. I just knw a little lol.
I believe myns warm 2.2 is a sense rom...I would need confirmation of this, if it is cool to use as is, to activate your phone. If you would like a different rom, we'll provide links....
My computer is slow tonight so have patience with me anyways:)

Well can someone help me get that ROM the mikeg >.<? And how to install it...i dnt actually know alot about this phn lol.

Well, heres a link to the rom...use the full wipe version:
MikG v3.11 [3/9/2012]

Here's a link on how to flash it:..post # 3..skip step 4
Can we flash over the old ROM?


but first, I think we need to find out what recovery you currently have and perhaps upgrade it...am I right guys?

CWM recovery...v3.0.0.5?
o.k...we need to change that to a new, different recovery, CWM is buggy and doesn't wipe very well.
I will link to you Amon ra or the smelkus recovery I use.
Do you remember if you have s-off? (it will say this in your bootloader screen, at the top...if it is s-off then I can give you the PC36IMG file for the recovery)
