I think I messed something up?
(First off I'd like to note that I've had my new Evo for a whopping 3 days now...So I'm pretty new to Android.)
Hi, attempted to root my phone today after installing the update that came out:
HTC Evo 4G getting an update, adds NOVA demo game, Swype | Android Central
I used the newest version of unrevoked, followed a guide that said it was the latest version, and after it said it should be finished (phone rebooting for the second time) my phone came back up, had a swirling arrow icon up on the notification bar and froze for the better part of 5 minutes before saying HTC sense needed to be force closed. I told it to do so and once the phone started responding again I rebooted once more and now my main weather/clock widget just displays the time and city, never the weather forecast and or temperature. Did I bork it? I haven't done a Nandroid backup and really don't mind if I have to reinstall, how do I go back to factory? Did I break something?

When you are in the bootloader, does it say S-OFF or S-ON near the top of the screen? Also, what Hboot version is it showing? If root worked it would say S-OFF. You can access the bootloader by turning off the phone, then holding the down volume button and pressing power (it takes you to a white screen).

In fact you can grab the latest version with the new update here:
Or you can get the latest update but rooted and it won't flash the new hboot:
-- From the sounds of your post I would get a little more used to rooting and what you have in your hands there before running the RUU file, or I'd run a known rootable RUU, you can find them all here: (the latest one is the newest update and I'd hold off on that a bit).Fred

Before you go back to stock, you might want to wait awhile. My weather widget is currently not showing the weather - I thought I might have to hard reset, until I checked my son's Hero, and he's not getting a forecast either.
There may be problems that have nothing to do with your phone.

S-ON means you're not fully rooted.
Chances are if unrevoked3 is having problems with their 1-click root for 3.30 builds... then the newest one might not root.
There's other ways to root froyo, if you have a windows computer there's a thread over at XDA. Search "EVO, universal, froyo, root.
It's a thread by xHausx
