I will try it when I get home tonight and let you know how it goes, this is killing me not having root on my phone.

Will this be about the steps I have to take to flash any rom?
Thank God no.

This is just the first time run. After you get your first time done, you only need to load up fastboot and type 'fastboot boot recovery.img' and then do steps 6 and 7. And 6 is optional, really. You don't have to back up your device before flashing something new. But for the very first time around, you really should.

I just wrote up a 'Quick Guide' for when you want to flash something else. It is basically just the list of commands from various steps compiled into one area for easy reference.

GSM phones actually can retrograde their HBOOT to get full S-OFF. Hopefully the guys can crack it for CDMA (Sprint), so that people can retrograde to 1.40 and get S-OFF so flashing ROMs is just like the Evo 4G. That's my hope, anyways.
