[PSA] Rooting the new 2.3 is [ITS POSSIBLE GUYS!!!] 8/14/11
Root is here for Evo 4G's on stock gingerbread 4.24!!! Via this method Revolutionary
I'll be leaving the old OP here below, for posterity and if anyone wants to find a little back drop on the story
For warning i will be closing all thread asking about how to root or anything to do with rooting the new update. Post in this thread about it ONLY. No need for 50 threads of a similar topic.
Now on to the information about it.
Everyone who is rooted should know that you DO NOT accept OTA updates, we use rooted versions of the update instead. Accepting the update will cause you to lose root, and in this case, you cannot even reroot afterwards.
In this latest update was a new bootloader along with 2.3.3 gingerbread. Gingerbread can be rooted on other devices using gingerbreak which is a script that uses an exploit to gain root. The same developer made rageagainstthecage which is used in Z4 root. Z4 root will obviously not work with gingerbread.
When i get a chance ill mess around with gingerbreak to see if we can get temporary root on 2.3.3, but until a developer cracks the bootloader roms are not possible.
No you cannot roll back to 2.2, it will give you a main version update is older error. Dont bother trying.
When full root is possible, you will know, trust me.
Have a good day

Just kindly point people to this thread. Dont get hostile, we were all new at one point and AC in my mind is a great place for new people to come and learn. Id rather not taint that

I don't think there was a new bootloader in this maintenance update. So if you're unrooted, I'd update it. Why not.

No wife or kid for a week while they're visiting family. This was the week I had on my mental calendar to root my Evo and try out some of the ROMs I've been reading about.
Instead I am left only to enjoy the maintenance update that still leaves my phone slow and with poor battery life.

Thanks for everything. Android devs will get it right soon. They may already have it done and are just polishing up. And I admit my curiosity got the best of me and I took the OTA. Won't ever happen again. My wife's Evo will b here tomorrow so I've tried to "persuade" her to change out with me but looks like she's gonna make me suffer with the ITYS's (i told you so) I will keep trying. So devs, keep up the good work and I will be watching and waiting to buy you Beer? coffee? whatever... Take care

Re: [PSA] Rooting the new 2.3 is not possible, yet. Read on...
So it seems it is more complicated to root the 2.3.3 version and it may take some time to root (perhaps it will never to rooted)...meanwhile the buggy version must be used without recourse or options.
Is there a way to load an RUU even though bootloader is locked? (note: run via computer with phone off, not letting phone security interfere with process...)
