OK - Couldn't wait. It works! 2.2 root with OTA!
W/ Root explorer I was able to move a lot of bloatware to a storage dir!
EDIT: I did this before Unrevoked pulled the update due to 2 EVO owners. I updated on a Stock DInc with update.zip Froyo. No S-Off prior to Root. When Unrevoked Re-Publishes this works on a non-Rooted, Non S-Off, Stock Install.
FOLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS!!!!!!!!!
Windows users need to install the HBOOT Drivers!
I did have issues updating with Visa. Windows XP worked like a champ.

My main purpose for this (initially) is to move/remove bloatware. Hopefully mine will go as flawlessly as you did (since I will be using XP).

When unrevoked 3.21 comes back, there will be a link to the HBOOT drivers that it needs to see the phone during the recovery boot cycle. They need to be installed for it to work.
It should be back soon.Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

I just used Unrevoked3 to root my unrooted stock Froyo... and it was sooo easy! Just install the hboot windows drivers... then run unrevoked... wait 5 minutes... and you are done! Then another 5 minutes to add free wifi tether and remove all of the VZW & HTC bloatware.
I'm new to the Droid family so this was my first "root" job, and its so easy a cave man with half a brain could do it. It is still not up on unrevoked's site (as they are working out bugs for the Evo, but Incredible's root is working perfect)... however if you go to unrevoked's IRC chat room you can get a link to download it.

I got it to work but it was not "1 click easy" on Vista or XP. (Though I did get it to work on XP eventually.)
Be patient, it will come back and it will work much better.
You may find it elsewhere if you search for it. However, I would advise waiting for the official re-release.
