First things first...

Credits:

Mast3rpyr0 - Original creator of a simple one click root. Most the code used here is based on his work with some tweeks. [ Link ]
webs05 - For the outstanding help he has provided to those who were having issues using Simple Root!!! Thanks!
toastcfh - For root and nand unlock. [ Link ]
Koush - Recovery image [ Link ]
maejrep - For helping with the code to remove sendkeys!! Thanks alot!!


If I forgot anyone that I should have mention, let me know....


Automatic updates and create update patches with wyBuild.

After hours of trying to figure out a way to make Mast3rpyr0's batch files work correctly, I noticed it had problems sending certain commands. So I decided to use some of his batch file codes, and create a VB.NET application along with batch files. I have unrooted and rooted my personal phone multiple times trying to get this to work. I tested the app 3times!! Each time Unrooting my phone! All three times its has been successful!

What exactly does this do?
Exactly what it say, Root your EVO in 3 Steps.

How do you use it?
Make sure your phone is on USB Debug mode. (MENU > Settings > Applications > Developement > USB debugging = Checked ) Click the buttons starting from Step 1.




Why the large file size?
This includes all the .img and .zip files that are needed to root. (2 PC36IMG.zip @ ~ 170MB = 340mb) and a couple of other smaller files. I decided to add them to make things more simple and avoid having to explain where to get these files.

Youtube Example
sorry for all the video splits...not my fault, blame youtube.
Video quality might be bad, give them a few to process 720p version

Megaupload - had to put this up, account suspended due to the amount of downloads =( they want my to go dedicated smh...
Official Page | Full (Download this if you never used this program before)

If you have downloaded this program before, please read this

Note: Its recommended to flash a custom ROM. Reason I say this is because for whatever reason, the eng-image doesnt allow proper SU permission!!


Requires: Dot Net Framework 4 and HTC SYNC

I would try it if I didn't fully root yesterday. But props to you guys for putting that together. Seems like a one step jailbreak. Very nice.

The reason for this is because for some reason a batch file cant send the command

Code:
adb shell cat sdcard/flash_image > /data/flash_image
[SIZE="3"]The only way I found to get around that was using Sendkeys. I know, send keys is lame, and poor programming, but its the only way that I could get this to work.
Basically, Sendkeys sends keystokes to a targeted window, as if you were typing. You might see your keyboard NumLock, Caps light blink while this is being used, which is perfectly normal. (Enjoy the light show)

That's because the windows shell interpreter parses the redirect as belonging to the Windows system, not the android system. So it's trying to redirect the output to c:/data/flash_image or some such nonsense. Since Windows doesn't do / for it's directory structure, but instead uses \ it gacks trying to find the directory to put it in (which would be wrong even if it worked, since it would be on your hard drive, not the phone). You can change the cat line to this:

Code:
 adb shell cp /sdcard/flash_image /data/flash_image
and it should work just as well. Anytime you use a redirect in a batch script like that it's going to try and redirect to Windows. If it wasn't my day off and I wasn't so tired I might figure out a fix for that, but the code I posted above should do the trick well enough. I wasn't sure initially why people wanted to to read the file into another one in the first place, but I did it with cp when I rooted and it worked fine. I suggest testing it, and then possibly changing your program. That way you can get rid of sendkeys and people breaking root by clicking something when it's running

Thanks, I'll see how that works later on, and if it works ill just upload a zip file with the updated code. Don't like the whole sendkeys thing,...I'd like to figure out on making it work without batch files... but I no pro code lol
