My EVO has a screen with a pressure crack, I can't see anything on the screen at all. I have insurance plan so I took my phone to sprint, they slapped a new screen on it, saw it was rooted, told me they couldn't work on rooted devices, and sent me home with my broken screen.

I need to unroot. I can't see anything on my phone as I do it. As far as I can see I need instructions on a button-by-button basis (vol. down three times, power button, vol. down five times, power button, etc.)

Can anyone help me? I've searched and I can't find instructions that I can use without being able to read the on-screen menus.

droid explorer has a screen cast function - you can access the screen from the pc.

Wow they really suck for that. Google android screencast. I just used it to make sure it would work in recovery, and it did.

Politely tell the store to check Sprint's service policy, Sprint techs work on rooted phones! Your screen failure is not due to rooting.

If that doesn't work, go to another store.
