Has Unrevoked Hurt Your Phone?
I want to see if you personally have had a bad experience with the Unrevoked rooting process.
NOT Unrevoked Forever, which is all together entirely different.
If you've had a problem please describe what it was and I'll bring up whatever issues I can with their team members or submit some bugs myself if I can re-create the issue.

Unrevoked 3.21 confused the hell outta me, made me unroot for froyo when it dropped.
Then I did full regular root and I learned ALOT.Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

I rooted my phone with unrevoked 3.21. Only did so cause my home computer was shot and I was still saving for a new one. I did the root process at my work with unrevorked because it only takes about 15 mins. I wish I could had done it through adb so I could learn more about it.
With being a firefighter, I never know when I will have to run a call nor do I know how long I could be gone and the fact our computer is near the main entrance to the building is another minus. Just anyone could walk in and mess it up or one of the medics that is there could mess it up.
For me it was the safest way at the time to root.
So far I had no problems and I hope it stays that way!!

All of that being said, I do have to say that I originally rooted with unrevoked. I didn't have any problems, but I soon realized that I didn't really know what was going on. So, I went back to stock and rooted the long way. Now, instead of being clueless I have learned enough that I am able to help others out when they have problems.

I used unrevoked and am confident enough in myself to fix it myself.
But, to each their own.

I used unrevoked last July when I first got my Evo just to get Wireless Tether. When the 2.2 OTA came out, I realized the problems that could occur and ended up flashing the original Evo RUU (don't remember the number anymore) and used OTA updates to get to the stock 2.2.
With the newer versions of unrevoked (and now that I had a better understanding of how things worked), I gave them a shot again since I knew how I could "fix" it. Haven't had any issues and have been trying out new ROMs, making theme changes, backups, etc since. I'm happy now.HTC Evo 4G -- MikG v2.6x

By doing it through ADB its easier for the ones that know it the method well to help when things go wrong.
By unrevoked not saying how the root process is done, its hard to help if no one knows the steps or where it went wrong.

I used unrevoked. I understand the opportunity for learning, however, I don't really care to take the extra time to root.
I'm in a different position than the standard Android user. As an adept linux user, I don't see what I need to "learn" in regard to adb shell. It's a shell. It has a help. It has command syntax. Execute desired commands with the right syntax. Whenever I had to modify file permissions, push / get files etc... I never had a problem. A tedious exercise doesn't really teach me much.
I've also learned the relevance and significance of bootloaders, the intention of a recovery and how it's manipulated to serve as a delivery vehicle for software, radio updates and their relevance to kernels.
I've rooted phones the "long" way in the past (and yes, every phone is different). I know one can claim a certain degree of competence after rooting their phone without using the 1click method.
I do think everyone should know how to perform basic troubleshooting. If they can't I don't think they should be rooting--let alone the 1click method. However, using the long method of rooting isn't the only way that one can learn about how their phone works. Using the long-method as a self-segregating process of separating people who shouldn't be rooting in the first place... is not a bad concept though. Just let me have my 1click method.

Did the "UnrEVOke3" last week and added tether. At first, all went well. The next day, I got "ERROR 105". Did the most recent tether app and played with it some more. The best I can tell is the phone went to sleep before it totally connected. Works fine now and is as fast as my cable service.
I new to this but boy I love this phone. The best I've ever had! :0)
