Clockword recovery with 2.02 hboot
Ok... so I got my replacement today and of course just as I feared it's got the 2.02 hboot. Which means I'm gonna have to use unrevoked forever. NOT happy about that at ALLLLL... To make it worse I just read that you can't use Clockwork Recovery with the root method for the 2.02 hboot?! THIS SUCKS! Has this changed at all? Anyone know of a way? Not happy at all right now...

Alright, then I'd do this:
Then once you have S-OFF:
(I'm ready to throw out the 003/004 disclaimer on that after testing today but if you're 004 it's something to keep in mind I guess, but if you're 003 then no sweat, that's what I have)
Then hook up with the clockworkmod recovery file: (that's at koush's site, i renamed it recovery.img to make life easier when I downloaded it)
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
it's a shame htc locked their hboot like this, I mean, we at least used to have rooting choices ya know.

i bought a newer one and gave my old one to my wife and this new 0004 and 2.02 is a pain to deal with, you will have to be cautious when flashing. Some Roms will fail and will require you to erase all data, or factory reset, I keep a pc36img in at all times JUST in case something happenes, and also, nand restore doesnt always work, which is a horrible let down.
EdiT: Im currently running MYN and had a success (once) of running Cyanogen 6.1.1 so there is that, but once you get a rom try to stick with it for a while, you dont have the liberty of flashing like crazy like you can on the older versions.

Well... I forgot that my girlfriends computer has Windows... SOOO I'm gonna use that automated one. Don't have the patience anymore. I've been stock since Sunday and I can't take it anymore lol... I just wanna root again damn it! hope it works..
Update: Worked perfect! Only took about 15 minutes and everything worked perfect. I'm not gonna do the downgrade of the hboot tonight, I'll do it tomorrow probably. In the meantime I'd like to flash Vaeleks latest beta. I read that for newer hboots I have to flash "newkernel.zip" after flashing a ROM. Few questions.. One.. I can't find that actual file anywhere. Two, do I have to do that EVERY time I flash a ROM? Three, is it safe to flash kernels now with that root method? Four, when I downgrade the hboot, would the 3 previous questions not matter anymore?
Update2: Ok... so apparently the newkernel.zip is actually just the htckernel#17. So I'm good with that.. Only question now ties into my question previously asked... can I use custom kernels? Or am I stuck with the stock #17? Or I have to flash the ROM, flash that kernel, boot up... then flash the custom kernel?
Update3: Well I've flashed a bunch of custom kernels and so far no problems. Looks like my Evo is even more o/c friendly than my first Evo Either way, things going great so far. Definitely plan on downgrading the hboot tho..

Thanks for that I'm pretty sure my phone is brand new but before I started putting any kernels on my phone my pri number ended with 003 and it still dose so dose this mean I can't use clockwork and can't flash independent kernels cuz of my phone being hboot 2.02 s-off rooted of course and once I start flashing different kernels then my camera won't work because there made for older phones and I would have to only have HTC kernel or the camera don't work?
