Wow! What a rush... Now I understand.
You guys were right all along... No point in not rooting. My Evo is a killing machine now!
The process went better than I expected with a few slight hiccups. And more hiccups to come I'm sure. Simple Root worked like a charm except for the fact I had to hunt down .NET framework and such. I was completely sure that I was going to end up bricking my phone... But nope... This Goat did it.
So now I've flashed CM6 and only have a couple of questions that I couldn't seem to find when I was hounding around...
1. This is supposed to be the "stable" build... Which it is. I never have apps crashing or anything of that nature...
But why does my signal strength stink so bad? I flashed the latest radios and such... I just don't understand... Do I need to flash over to AC Rom to get my PRI updated?
2. Visual Voicemail. Can it be done on CM6?
3. The stock Kernal that came with CM6 seems to be pretty beastly on battery life and kills the FPS cap... So I'm not really seeing a reason to flash a new kernel... But am I shooting myself in the foot by not doing so?

Beastly = Much better battery life than I had when using stock.
My Kernel = 188.8.131.52-cyanogenmod shade@toxgene#1
So am I the only one experiencing signal strength issues? Maybe it's just that stock sense was lying about how many bars I actually had in reality.
Sorry about all my silly language last night. I was on a caffeine binge and was obviously REALLY excited about rooting my phone.
My fps average around 50.

Hey if i was you id get the snap v8.2 kerne l and flash it right over your cm6 like i do with my nightlys. just look at my benchmarks. AND improved battery.
[Kernel] CM6-Snapv8.2 [BFS/UUV/OC/nHAVS] Available Now! New SNAPpapers App! - xda-developers
theres a bunch of options on witch 8.2 too pick, id choose the 850 one. its the most stable for me, but if its not stable for you go up in number, not down.
OH and as for dropping 3g to 2g edge in your notification bar, you were dropping it before but sense doesnt have a 2g sign for the notification bar, so it never shows up (tricky bastards)

Re: Wow! What a rush... Now I understand.
You guys rock so much.
I went ahead and flashed over to a Sense backup I had and updated my profile and PRL, seems to have already helped some.
I'm starting to think that the signal issue was a placebo effect. It's just that Sense lied to me about my bars. I never really kept my eye on dbm too much, so I don't have any hard data to compare. The updated PRL and Profile are already keeping my 3G from crapping out on me.
I may hold up on the kernel stuff for just a bit. I just want to enjoy my rooted phone that runs ultra fast and saves battery for a bit. Getting my phone to the point it's at took about 8 hours of research and tinkering. Wouldn't have been possible without all the awesome info you guys had for me. And the unlocked fps is just blowing my eyes into the back of my head with it's beauty.
This is a hell of a community that I am extremely proud to be a part of now.
