How I rooted my 2.2 EVO with unrevoked
Just wanted to pass this on in case it might help some of you.

Unrevoked V3.3 is out and works with the new EVOs using 2.2 HBOOT however not flawlessly. At least not for me. It would complete the first step off installing unrevoked forever to get S-OFF however it was never able to install the custom recovery and allow SuperUser permissions (Full root). After many retries it finally worked by me having to hold down the volume key when the unrevoked package rebooted my phone the 2ND time. I'm guessing it was having problems booting into the bootloader and it was instead doing a regular reboot.

If you get a message on unrevoked asking if you have too new firmware or it gets stuck at "Rebooting..." prompt try this suggestion

So i just installed the hboot from unrEVOked modified USB driver and also used the unrevoked 3, reflash package app and everything rooted with no hiccups. Below are the specs and fw versions on my phone.

Kernal: 2.6.32.17
Build:3.7.651.1
PRI:1.90_003

Hope this helps everyone out. The installation time should take about 5min from start to finish. Thanks again unrevoked for coming with solid app and making it easy to use

I'm having trouble using unrEVOked 3... I have the driver installed (windows here), HTC sync never installed on this PC, and it won't do anything when I plug my phone in with debugging mode on. Is it because of apps that use the SD card??

Tried rooting with unrevoked 3.21. At the end of the process is says "Failed to flash recovery image." Recovery image clockwordMod Recovery.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Is there a different method I need to root with? Do I need to change my HBoot?

You should be good since you have the .97 hboot. Just keep trying. Took me 4 times.

I'm gonna try and help my friend root his EVO can I keep his RSA key using this method? He doesn't want a new rom, all he wants is tethering. Nothing else matters to him.
