Flash Image GUI updated to work with the HTC EVO 4G LTE

6a00d83451c9ec69e20153927d762f970b 800wi - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereFlash Image GUI is an application that allows you to flash custom kernels, boot logos, and recoveries while your operating system is still running. Since it flashes them in Android mode, the limitations imposed by HTC on custom recoveries with what they can and cannot flash are sidestepped, at least for kernel flashes.

While there are not a lot of custom kernels out there at the moment for the HTC EVO 4G LTE, it’s been reported that it is no longer possible to flash kernels in standard recovery mode after the last update, meaning if you want a custom kernel you’ll need a recovery with Smart Flash/Dumblock/similar capabilities, flash from Fastboot, or Flash Image Gui.

I used Flash Image GUI in extensive testing on the HTC EVO 3D and never had an insurmountable problem with it, so hopefully that reliability will translate over to the EVO 4G LTE.

Flash Image GUI is $0.99 from the market and worth it.

  • I used it on the Evo 3d, and it was a little bit of a pain because it couldn’t flash in recovery. However, it was better then always having to connect to a computer.

  • I’m pretty sure HTC/Sprint also removed the ability to flash from Fastboot with S-ON after the latest update… I’m HTCdev unlocked, and couldn’t flash anything at all through Fastboot. So this might be the only option.

      I’ve not run across this. Would have thought the TWRP site would be filled and every ROM thread would be overflowing saying it wasn’t working.

      Going to have to find me a willing test subject now

      John has root unless something changed. Without root this tool wouldn’t work in the first place.
