This is getting out of hand
This is way too complicated. I haven't applied the 1.47.651.1 patch yet, I rooted using unrevoked OTA when the evo 4G came out. I just want to
1) Install this patch with ALL of the fixes (e.g. I want the new 4G radio and whatnot) I don't care where the patch comes from.
2) Be able to have a rooted phone so I can use wifi tether and titanium backup
3) Not have to lose the data on my phone and have to restore it. I don't have time to go through this process and the uncertainties that may go with it. I need a root method that will keep all my data and everything in tact and doesn't require me to backup and restore my data. (like how unrevoked-1 kept all my data intact)
Can you please just point me in that direction? Reading all these different terms "adb, clockwork, nandroid, recovery" is killing me. Nowhere have I found a good simple tutorial that explains what all of those things are and how they work in the rooting process.
I don't have time for this and it's frustrating, can someone please, please help me here. And by help, I mean solve my problem above...helping is not going to be pointing me to a good tutorial. That's appreciated, but I don't have time for it now. I already wasted enough time trying to figure this out...at this point I just need to get it to work.
