    Rooted finally woohoo

    Thanks for the guide

    Nothing against the guide here but I used this one

    [ROOT] EVO 4G Gingerbread 2.3 Root Tutorial (Windows) - xda-developers

    The only thing the guide here is missing is the step about copying over the superuser file before even starting

    Sprint won't know unless you go really crazy with it. I been using it since October and all good here.

    Just a FYI, the native Sprint hotspot is unlocked (use it for free) in that rom so you don't have to use that app. I always had better luck with the Sprint hotspot.

    What are the custom gingerbread roms out there? Which ones are worth checking out? I'm only aware of MikG, but nothing else.

    Just a thought. Try downloading Amon_RA recovery (I assuming you're talking the recovery when you say clockworkmod and not Rom Manager) and then re-installing superuser.

    The sprint hotspot hack is included in Synergy - you do not need to take any additional steps to use it. (oops, Smoke already covered this)

    That being said... how do you like Synergy? I am thinking about installing it - it looks to be exactly what I want in a ROM.

    P.S. it has landscape homescreens, right?

    This.

    I had to bump out of the process, reconnect via USB, and copy the SU file over... Since this was my first "rooting a phone experience", I was a tad nervous as to how it would respond, but no worries.

    If the process here had that one step added, it, too, would be easy-peasy to follow!

    Yes Landscape home screens

    I'm really liking it it is a easier transition for a first timer than going all out with some of the more basic roms out there and then customizing it to your liking.

    I'm still reloading my apps/contacts and my backup SMS

    One thing I have been trying to do is change my bootscreen.
    When I load a new bootscreen all I get is the android lettering not the actual bootscreen I downloaded but that is for another thread

    My problem is I use my phone as my internet connection through pdanet, and there are no open networks around here. So when I ran revolution and it asked about downloading recovery (internet connection needed) I pressed no.So my question is how do i install clockwork mod manually? My phone is already s-off after running Revolution. Is there a way to install superuser without going into recovery so I can get recovery via Rom Manager? Thanks for any info.

    You install Clockworkmod through your hboot. Download the .zip file of Clockwork and rename it PC36IMG.zip (All caps. Case sensitive). Make sure it doesn't have .zip twice. Have it on your sd card and don't put it in any folder as it won't be found.

    Turn off Fastboot and then power off the phone. Hold Volume Down + Power until your white screen comes on. Don't touch anything and let it scan for it and let it do its thing. It will ask you to update and select yes (Volume Up) and then reboot. Flash Superuser through recovery.

    You can't get Rom Manger to install it because you need Superuser first for the app to work.

    You're welcome. With so many questions coming at once it most got lost in the thread. Well, to me anyways
