    Is there any information on this yet? On my original EVO I used a program called unrevoked that was super easy. I'm not looking to flash new Rom etc, just want root access asap.

    The bootloader will be unlockable with HTCDev.com. Once a custom recovery is compiled, root access will be easy .

    I hope someone can get S-off. There is nothing like having full control over YOUR device.

    I believe that the root method may be similar to that of the One X. I have not confirmed it yet.

    Yes. And to get rid of any bloat ware that might come that we don't know of....also to perhaps be able to switch the preview screens button to do Search button on OG Evo.

    It is my understanding that with Sprint, you are now able to root without voiding your warranty. HTC, you have to use their unlock method and by accepting their terms, you are acknowledging a void in warranty.

    I've tried MANY custom roms on my OG EVO and never found one that was as stable as stock. For now I just want tethering.

    a phone with these specs who really cares about bloatware. Does it really bother you that much?

    I think the e4glte only has two bloat apps. Tethering is nice though I rarely use it. For me custom roms are mandatory though. The little tweaks can really make a difference especially if multi tasking is still an issue.

    Yes it voids your warranty. Yes it is legal.

    Thru Htc you can root your phone but you do not achieve S-off (which is what you want)

    Every month or so i install a new rom. Its like getting a new phone. Not to mention the added speed you can get from a good asop rom. Then you can add different apps and what not that you were not able to use before like lcd density, titanium backup, rom manager just to name a few.

    Basically it allows you to do whatever you want with Your device

    Rooting is awesome

    Ahh yes, you are right sir! Thanks for the correction and sorry for passing on bad info. I try to ensure my source before passing info along but missed that the thread was closed.

    For others that have never root'd and ROM'd your phone; it's not for every one. If you're not technical, to some degree, then it may not be the right thing to do. Custom ROM's and kernels bring lots of tweaks and changes to the phone. While some early ROMs may be unstable (and therefor unusable) there are typically a lot of other stable options available. However, the ROMs that tweak the settings and modify the kernel are typically the ones that truly unlock the full potential of the phone's HW! I have always root'd and ROM'd my phones (EVO 4G and EVO 3D) and have never had a warranty issue. Both phones I took into the Sprint store with a custom ROM installed and they always fixed the problem for me. On my EVO 3D I even did the HTC unlock and still had the phone replaced under the warranty (due to a screen issue). Most of the tech/repair guys at Sprint have their devices root'd and ROM'd as well, so they typically don't pay any attention to this kind of thing. If there is ever any issue with having a root'd and ROM'd phone you can always restore the stock ROM via the RUU utility that is available, so this isn't really an issue. It's a fairly long, technical process so if you decide to do this be prepared to see it through to the end. You'll be glad you did.

    I never used 4ext recovery but heard great things for users that didn't have s-off. I hope our devs can get s-off on this phone. I really like using TWRP! The touch interface is very nice and easy to use. I also hope that we get s-off so flashing the kernels isn't such a pain in the a$$!

    With 32GB on board (about 26 GB available after including bloatware), I wonder just how much more space can be freed up? The AOSP ROMs usually free up much more than that of Sense based ROMs
