    Complete step by step HTC EVO Root + PS3 Jailbreak guide!

    I will try and simplify this as much as possible. There are so many guides out there for so many devices and it can get a bit confusing, or sometimes seem a bit incomplete. This is my first guide ever, so I will try and be as through as possible. If I missed something or if you have questions please let me know, thanks.


    Disclaimer:

    1) Do this at your own risk.
    2) I take NO responsibility for anything that may go wrong.
    3) PS3 Jailbreaking is for backing up games you actually own, amongst other things!
    4) I suggest you read this guide from start to finish before attempting to root your HTC EVO and Jailbreak your PS3.

    This method has been tried and tested working 100%

    Things you will need:

    * Any PS3 with F/W 3.41 ONLY
    * HTC EVO
    * A USB Flash Drive
    * A few files/apps which this guide will cover.
    * Windows OS (this was done on Win 7 64bit OS)

    I will be doing linking to other tutorials so that we will have all required info in one guide.

    Let's get started!

    **Backup anything important to you on your phone just incase**

    1) Install hboot Drivers for Android
    Follow this vid very easy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?annotat...&v=FXDszE0Ytn8

    2) Download and install unrEVOked v3.21 for windows link: http://downloads.unrevoked.com/recov...sh_package.exe
    Follow this vid very easy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXWm8...633&feature=iv

    Your EVO is now rooted and you have the required drivers needed.

    3) Optional but recommended: Make a nandroid backup.

    - Press volume down key to you get to "nandroid" then press power key once.
    - Press power while on "backup" (be patient this may take a few minutes)
    - When you get "backup complete! "press up arrow key once then power once, then power key again that should reboot your phone.
    - All done! (Your nandroid backup you just made can be found on your SD card in a folder called clockworkmod/backup.. if you wanted to backup your backup DO NOT RENAME)

    - Once PS3 is booted plug in your USB jump drive and on your PS3 install manager.
    - Remove USB Flash Drive
    - Put game into drive and install game onto HDD, wait for game to completly install and power off PS3

    Getting close now

    8)Download: Android SDK + winrar + JDK

    Android SDK link :http://dl.google.com/android/android...07-windows.zip (you may need JDK it will prompt if you do when you run SDK Manager for the first time... download and install link below)

    JDK link for windows x64 (64bit): http://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP....indows-x64.exe

    JDK link for windows x86 (32bit) http://cds.sun.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP....ndows-i586.exe

    winrar link choose version for your OS 32 or 64bit: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

    9) Setting up the Android SDK

    - Unzip to your desktop downloaded the file from above
    - Take the "android-sdk-windows" folder and move it to the root of your hard drive (C:\)
    - Power off your phone
    - Power on your phone by pressing and holding volume down key while pressing and holding down power button.
    - Press volume key down to you get to "recovery" then press power key once
    - Using volume up/down keys go to "partions menu" press power key to select
    - Using volume up/down keys go to "mount /sdcard" press power key to select
    - Run SDK Setup.exe on PC (it may prompt you to update, accept updates)
    - Open up Command Prompt (Go to run, type in cmd, press enter or go to start, all programs, accessories, command prompt)

    Type in:

    * cd C:\android-sdk-windows\tools then press enter
    * adb devices then press enter you should see your device listed
    * adb shell then press enter you should see # in the next line

    Now type in:

    * flash_image boot /sdcard/boot.img then press enter (shouldn't take but a couple of seconds) you will see
    flash_image boot /sdcard/boot.img
    ~ #

    - Using volume up/down keys go to "go back" and then "reboot now"

    10) Once your phone is rebooted go to market and search for "ConnectBot" download and install

    - Go back to your PS3 disconnect the main PS3 power or use switch for PS3 Phat, connect the phone to the PS3, reconnect main power, press power button immediately followed by eject.
    - On your EVO run Terminal Emulator and type: (At some point superuser will come up, tap always allow)

    * su
    * cd /sdcard
    * insmod psfreedom.ko

    (IF YOUR PS3 FREEZES NO WORRIES just disconnect the main PS3 power or use switch for PS3 Phat, connect the phone to the PS3, reconnect main power, press power button immediately followed by eject)

    Insert a different game other than the one previously installed and go to backup manager load game that was installed

    ALL DONE

    **Notes**

    Known bugs:

    * This will disable wi-fi until the original boot.img is flashed back. (confirmed)
    * This will also disable USB mass storage. (confirmed)

    A work around would be:

    - To restore that nandroid backup you made earlier in this guide (be warned that would remove the files from you droid that we worked so hard to put on there)
    - Make another nandroid backup of the current ROM and settings (this way you can go back and forth between them)

    Myself personally I do not use wifi on my droid even prior to the ps3 jailbreak, also it's a pain, but I remove my SD card from phone and place in a card reader read/write files and then replace card back.

    Huge thanks to all that made this possible!!

    In case this might become useful. Once outdated, I will go ahead and delete it.

    Looks like he was banned by our spam bot.
    I will talk to the staff and see if this was justified ban or not.
