    We've had a froyo build since before the phone was released. Dig around, you'll find it

    Yeah but I believe mms and the cameras weren't working with it.

    Any one mind posting a "How to for total noobs that haven't rooted before" guide for the evo?

    Also does this root keep all features working? What about updates? Lemme know =)

    Much appreciated.

    I asked TheBiles from XDA to make another idiotproof tutorial like he did with part one of the root method, im sure he will make one for us.

    There's no noob guide for this root hack. You have to run some adb commands, etc. The easiest way to root is the Unrevoked version.

    That's why I'm still using unrevoked root, no need to take my chance and brick the phone if I don't have to

    Unrevoked is easy.I doubt anyone bricks there phone in the root process as it not that easy to brick a android phone as long as it turns on it usually can be saved.Most bricking of android phones is people getting in a furry and flashing a not supported radio(GSM radio).Rooting itself shoudn't result in bricking.

    Unrevoked is a waste of time and useless. It shouldn't even be considered root!!

    got a rookie question here. what's big improvement for 2nd part root? i mean, i know it remove NAND RW permission and etc, but can anyone give some brief image here what we can do differently if we just have 1st part root?

    In addition, if i used rom manager for flash recovery on the 1st part, can i still use this instruction for the 2nd part? (I mean, i did install SDK, ADB Driver on my pc, so starting shell in cmd prompt is not a problem)

    I agree with that, but i also think it's a good temporary idea for the first time when u try to use Titanium backup b4 1st part root, dont you think?

    Hey there! Having trouble unrooting from thhis method. I ran the RUU and keep getting error 170- usb connection error. Is the driver not installed. Stupid me, when it prompted to install the driver before, I hit 'never for this device'. Any reversal for this??? Thx in advance!

    The difference is now you dont need to be at your cpu with the SDK installed to get into custom recovery. So you can get into recovery without hooking up the phone to anything. You can flash ROMs on the go, or wherever you are at the moment. You can also access the system through android, so using apps like root explorer can remove those unwanted apps now really simple. Lots of other benefits too, but thats my preference.

    sweet. so that means i can use ROM Manager flash recovery after full root, then i can get recovery menu any time i want w/o computer, right?
