lol I hear you on that man, I think everyone feels that way the first time. But if you follow the directions step by step it really isnt that bad. You would almost have to screw up on purpose to permanently brick this phone.
Here you go, someone just posted this Looking to root / s-off / overclock my HTC EVO V 4G Help / Guidance please.
Also, I don't believe you need s-off for the GPS fix so you would just have to root which is pretty easy to do.
