Will it require using command prompts to install this root method?

Ah, revolutionary.io method then? Yes, this method will require the command prompt.

Yeah that's the one. As long as I know what order to do things in and the prompts are straight forward then it should be ok to follow.

Keep meaning to try using adb to attempt to root the samsung tablet they give you with the Evo manually, as practice, but haven't got round to it yet!

It's not so bad, but definitely be careful about the commands. In fact, I'm going through this process again just to ensure that my instructions and commands are correct. Since you're on the latest firmware, here's a quick run-down on what you're going to need to do:
  1. Downgrade to stock
  2. get root and CWM via revolutionary.io
  3. flash custom stock rom

Looks easy when it's like that...haha.

When you say downgrade to stock, do you mean that I need to go back to the previous software build? Think I'm gonna have to ask how you do that?!

And the rest with the revolutionary.io and flashing of the custom rom will be like I did before?

Yes, in fact, we'll be going back to the earliest build that came with the phone. My instructions should be fine and I'm including any files that you will need to downgrade. Rooting and flashing should be as before, yes.

So, will it be that adb commands will be needed to downgrade to the original software and then after that it's just a process of using revolutionary to obtain root and apply CWM? Will the custom rom being flashed be the one you're creating or will it be the one of the files you can find in this forum?

Yeah, writing about it does make it seem so simple...wish it was!!

Yes, to the first part. The custom rom is the one I created, so WiMax and all that stuff for our Japanese Evo should work! I'll provide the custom rom.

Well, hopefully it is. I finished going through the whole process again, and am successfully back on the latest build with root and other things working as far as I can tell.

When you're ready, send me a private message. We'll go from there.

Anyone know if any information regarding ICS specifically for our device? I can't find anything through my Google searches...but just wondering. I'm going to try to compile ICS just for some experience...I hope ICS comes to our device...

Where can I get the RUU 2.26.970.1? I found a download link for a filefactory.com download but cannot download it without becoming a paid member which I don't really want to do for one file. Any one know of a different location?

I have been trying for the better part of the day. I would appreciate it if you can upload it someplace else.
