Sweet rom. Can't wait to try it out. You should probably post screenshots of your finished rom.

ah....doesnt get old :p


??????????//

your posting in the wrong forum....get used to it



i think the OP is looking to root after upgrading with the OTA....not a rooted OTA ROM that he can use while already rooted...

Umm no if he was rooted properly. Not boot by bout basis. You are OK. Your S-Off. Just would need to put latest Amon RA recovery named PC36IMG.ZIP in root of sdcard. Then let hboot flash it. Then flash rom like normal. Works that what I did

i never have full root on my phone before the update...i used the temp root process...before i took the OTA update, i rebooted my phone so the temp root was gone and thats when i updated...not knowing that i wouldnt be able to temp root or permenantly root after taking the update...if i would have known...i wouldnt have updated

I would say give it a few days. I'm pretty sure someone will have EVO rooting again. Next time I would recommend unrevoked 3/forever.

It is so easy & fast. Root in 5min or less. Still able to unroot later if wanted/needed.

so after getting unrooted is just as simple as rooting permanently ???


and what do u guys think of this method?? is it worth a try?? not for unrooting but to downgrade from 2.3 back to 2.2

I can't believe that people are still asking this question. Thread count like 50+ for the same damn question. Face it you screwed up now sit back and wait for someone to bail you out. Next time read then search then search then read

    well my patience has now run out and i am very upset about their not being a new rooting method. We need a wake up call to the devs to make them understand this is unacceptable to have to wait this long! I think they are like who cares about the evo 4g now that the within and the evo 3d will be out in a week and a half.

    Yea me toooooo!

    The devs have never bought me dinner, got me laid, washed my car, or even made me a sandwich. All they ever do is greatly enhance our community's devices FOR FREE ON THEIR OWN TIME!

    Selfish jerks.

    I'm pissed.

    If your looking at unrooting also look here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=780141 that don't even need computer. Just phone. Yes unrooting looks fairly simple. Have a friend using the method just posted. He going to let me know.

    Worth a try, but I would definitely do a google search and have several RUUs on hand to try in case you get an error (i.e. attempting to load software older than original) with the first one.

    I'm getting the famous "is your firmware too new" message...??? Guess I am screwed too :-( I will never buy an HTC again I'll tell you that for sure....

    Every manufacturer locked down this generation of phones and prior, not counting the Nexus line. The move towards unlocked bootloaders is a new development, and one that HTC has signed on to. They haven't delivered yet, but I think it's unfair to say that you'll never buy an HTC phone again over this.

    Keep in mind that these are security exploits, and if aside from the fact that we use them to gain root access ourselves, patching them is NOT a bad thing. Malicious software could potentially use them to gain root access as well. That's part of the reason moving towards easily unlockable bootloaders is such a big step. We won't need to have these widely distributed security exploits floating around.
