Default [FIXED by Jiqqaman] One Click Rooting+Nand Unlock+Permanent Recovery

Hey guys. Just spent the last few hours creating an easy way to root your Evo, as well as unlock nand protection and install a permanent custom recovery.

Big big thanks and credit goes to toast, koush, and any other developers working on HTC Evo 4G hacks and mods!

Jiqqaman has been working hard to fix what I couldn't in my script and he has a working gui for windows which can do it all for you. Head over to this link to check it out: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...93#post6878393

Nice work man.

Haha I guess since a Linux script its already being asked about in the first post I will get to work on it first thing tomorrow.

Also, its uploading as slow as possible so prepare to wait for awhile, sorry bout that.

Oh and for the record, as my device is already rooted and everything, and I cannot get nandriod working, I was unable to test it completely, although everything outputs ok. So just post here if theres any problems.

About 37 minutes left on the upload. While we wait, im gonna thread jack myself and see if any of you can help me out hehe.

After doing the full nand unlocking and everything, I cant create a Nandroid backup. I would post a logcat if that command worked. it seems that not everything is unlocked, but i have access to it when im not in recovery. Any ideas on fixes?

Rom manager is nice for flashing and managing your roms, but it wont root or unlock your nand for you. Posting link soon, check the first post in about 5 minutes.

Now available for download here: http://mast3rpyr0.homelinux.com/android/EVOEasyRoot.zip

I will post any updates to the batch file here, as well as update this zip so you dont have to download the whole thing again. Hoping it works the first time though

Mast3rpyr0, I am interested in featuring this method at http://www.AndroidPolice.com - many people expressed desire for a one-touch root.

Feel free to ping me at http://www.androidpolice.com/contact.

In the meantime, I'm downloading it but it's very slow and cuts off every few seconds - the whole download says it would finish in 2 hours. Can you perhaps upload to megaupload in the meantime?

Thanks for your contribution! Comments like "if enough people want it then ill spend the time to make a Linux / Mac OS X script too" make me really happy and proud to be part of this community!
