I have a freedom pop HTC EVO LTE (Jewel), and I have erased the image and no OS is installed. I have TWRP installed and I can boot to recovery, but I am unable to flash any ROMS. I have tried MeanBean, but the kernel install is not working and errors out. How can I get the Kernel and or a new ROM installed so the phone will boot?

  • "but I am unable to flash any ROMS" -- can you elaborate on this part? Which TWRP version are you using? Is it official or unofficial? What ROMs have you attempted to flash so far? – Firelord Dec 9 '15 at 7:09
  • I have tried cyanogenmod, and meanbean. Cyanogenmod fails with error: can't extract binary. Mean bean fails with error above (can't install kernal). I am unsure what official vs unofficial twrp is. The phone came with it on it from freedom pop. – CodeMonkey Dec 9 '15 at 15:50

    It appears that for Meanbean ROM, data and system flashed successfully and some problem occurred when flashing kernel. Do this: in your PC, extract boot.img from Meanbean ROMs zip and copy it to /sdcard of device. Then in TWRP, go to Install, select IMG instead of ZIP option at the bottom, find and select boot.img under /sdcard/, and when asked for, choose boot partition. Report us the results. – Firelord Dec 9 '15 at 15:55

    This time: wipe System, data and all caches. Then flash Meanbean ROM. It would flash data and system fine (if I trust the screenshot) but fail at boot. For boot, follow my earlier comment. – Firelord Dec 9 '15 at 17:48
