All I really want to do is keep my Stock ROM and use Root only Apps to improve my battery life. This is very much possible, no problems?
I also would like to know when a new version/update for the EVO comes about, how will this effect my EVO? Will it brick the phone? Do I need to go back to my stock unrooted RUU?
Yes you can. You can have a phone that is 100% stock except that its rooted. And if you are rooted, never accept OTAs, you will lose root. You need to wait for a developer to incorporate the update into the ROM and then you use that to update.
Those are good questions so I'm going to add this to the original post.
I DONT want this to become a troubleshooting thread for issues specific to their phone...this is a resource thread.
