Been rooted for a week or 2 now since I got the EVO through work. Got it done on first attempt, as well as 2nd, 3rd, and soon to be 4th... The process was so easy I decided to voluntarily root my co-workers EVOs. And yes, our entire department got one, through some of my own influence of course Slapped on Fresh's Rom to boot and saved the company the extra $30 for Hotspot capabilities!

I must say, this is by far, the easiest method of rooting/hacking/modding any/all of my HTC phones. I had Tilt and Diamond prior to this, and both were modded, but this one was definitely less painful. Thanks for the clear instructions!

No image
loading no image or wrong image

Do you want to reboot device?

After reading tons of threads I found the Unrevoked3 exe which states At this time, unrevoked3 does NOT work on stock Froyo (Android 2.2) phones. My question is I followed the how to root the HTC EVO 4G with Froyo 2.2 part 1 video and have the phone to 2.1-update 1. I tried to finish part2 but couldn't find the unrevoked3 package. So my question is since I rolled back will the unrevoked work on my phone?

stuck on unrevoked.exe
Thanks for all the input but I am stuck on the part where I use unrevoked.exe I don't know if its a prob but because the new version of unrevoked was taken down so I tried the previous version suggested on that webpage and used it with the new modified usb drivers and when I run unrevoked I get to very end then it says flash failed. I done everything else right up to that point and am stuck so if anyone has any ideas to what went wrong please let
me know. Thank you.

This is because the
Code:
./flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd-eng.img
command failed. try that again. you will probably need to run the exploit again.

Since you aren't up to speed as to why this process downgrades only to upgrade back to the same rom, you would be better off using the one click method found on this same subforum.

Regaw you should link to the one click method in your op for people who aren't comfortable with this method.

Not until it is officially released. I will when I get the green light from Matt, but not until then, for whoever uses the mediafire/megaupload versions of unrEVOked 3.2 are ON THEIR OWN with support, due to the short pull back because of a small bug. I will update the OP when it is released again to the public.
