THIS IS ONLY FOR NON-NAND, TheBiles should put one out for NAND rooting soon.

Here's a guide for people who either don't have a PC or don't want to use one.

You will need the following files:
PC36IMG.zip
Update.zip (listed below)
A rom image of your choice

put all these files on your SD card root then power off your phone.

THIS CAN WIPE YOUR DEVICE, IF YOU NEED TO BACKUP DO STEPS 1-13 HERE

1. Hold volume down and power, keep holding volume down till the white screen appears


2. Wait for it to search for PC36IMG.zip on the sd card then hit yes when it asks if you want to update

3. Wait for it to finish(it takes awhile) then press yes to reboot

YOU NOW HAVE ROOT
now we will flash a custom rom

4. When the white "Evo 4g" screen appears, pull the battery

I'm glad you wrote this up. I performed root the exact same way. I still don't know anything about adb, sdk, shell, or whatever. But this way is truly rooting for dummies!, and totally without a PC. I also used rom manager to download my first rom that i flashed. But then downloaded a new one. I plan on using dcupdater for new updates.
