Right, make the backup/nandroid [same thing], IF you install a gingerbread rom, like CM7, salvage mod, evervolv, ect, you need to install the latest gapps with it.

Go you back to completely stock, unrooted, you'd run the unrevoked s-on to in recovery, then run a 3.70 RUU.

Now, say I wanted to install a completely vanilla Gingerbread ROM after I install (and didn't like CM7). Where would I get that from? Does it have to be specially made for the Evo or is there a location here that has lists of ROMs?

You need to insall an Evo rom for the Evo. The roms are found in zeh development section. You can't post there yet, but you can browse and still download the roms from there.

Yep. Evo ROMs only for the Evo. You will see things such as ports. Be careful with those as those will almost never be fully functional when they are first released and are generally for developers to build off of.

If you didn't like CM7, you can try the other Gingerbread based ROMs like rox said. You can also try some of the modded Sense ROMs. All of those are still Sense 1.0 and Froyo.

There are Sense 2.0 ROMs but those are lacking 4G and are still a bit bugged.

Well, the only 4G tower is on the other side of my state, so lucky me. As long as 3G and Wi-Fi works, I'm set.

My last question: I can unroot and go from S-OFF to S-ON, correct?

Yep. When you want to unroot, you want to turn security back on (S-off -> s-on) and then flash the stock RUU's that are out there.

And that will wipe everything again lol. And you won't be able to use Titanium Backup to restore since that requires root.

Alright, sounds good. I feel a lot better about this now. Can just about everything be upgraded and downgraded? Like, for example, the radio. Can that be updated, then downgraded? I'm not sure why, but just wondering.

Yep. You can upgrade and downgrade radios, NV, PRL, PRI, all that good stuff. You flash that just like a ROM.

Now what you can do is look into my backup, but that'll back things up, root not required, copy it to your pc to be sure, run the RUU, copy it back, then restore.
