Re-Rooting to fix sms on my HTC Evo V

I’ve been enjoying my Evo V for just about a year now and it’s a great phone. But knowing me, I demand more out of. More than the original developers had planned. This is why I run Cyanogenmod which allows me to run a bloat-free Android 4.2.2 device. Only issue with this is the lack of updates right from the provider. (They don’t necessarily endorse the installation of custom ROMs) Due to this my phone got out of sync, or who knows what, and I wasn’t able to receive any text messages. I tried flashing back to a stock NANDROID backup that I made to allow me to update my PRL and what not but that didn’t help. After researching around I figured that my best bet to regain the ability to receive text messages would be to RUU or essentially go to a completely unrooted stock device. Well, after following a nice guide – I was one again able to receive text messages.

If it would help you, here’s a link to the RUU guide as well as a link to a rooting guide in case you need it.
