I am guessing that I have to remove unrevoked before using this? Will this give me write access to /system?

You should have the same abilities as all the other root methods since this gives you full root so yes, but still read up on what u should and shouldn't delete.

Rooting your phone won't make it so you can delete the sprint apps, you need to flash a custom rom which is made without the sprint apps installed. Rooting your phone DOES allow you to flash the custom rom however.

Myself, I'm going to wait to use this method until a few more of the bugs are worked out. I've read up today on his newest updates and they sound promising but I still see people having issues. Also didn't someone mention that Unrevoked is working on something like this?

Can't Root Explorer be used to remove stock apps from the rooted Evo? I've used it on my rooted Moment often and it works perfectly

Yes you can remove the applications without flashing to a new ROM. I am 100% positive, as I have done it over and over.

After NAND was unlocked and we had R/W capabilities, I started doing it this way. I also used this method on my hero.

Get root explorer its the easiest way to remove apps and well worth it. Most of the stuff with batch zip files was before NAND was unlocked.

This is not true. As long as you have full root with nand unlock you can remove anything you want without loading a custom. In fact, you can use Titanium Backup (free) to just "point and remove."

You can also simply open up the zip file that contains any rom and just delete the apps you don't want. You don't even need nand unlock for that. If it ain't in the rom zip file it won't be on the EVO.

I saw this but decided to use TheBiles guide to root by Evo so that I could learn something. I'm actually really glad that I did. Moving forward I'll feel comfortable using flashboot, adb, flashing roms, booting into recovery, etc. It took longer but if you want to understand what you're doing to your phone it's worth it.

Props to the guy who put this together though. It looked really easy.

I totally agree. I am a complete noob to android and I just rooted my phone yesterday with TheBiles method and I learned tons and A LOT more comfortable and confident I won't brick my phone.

Default Stuck at bootloader

I am trying this easy 3 step method but once it gets to where it is suppose to look for the file pushed to my sdcard it just sits at that screen and does nothing never prompts me to load file or anything. Has anyone else had this happen? what can i do from here to move forward. It is at the white screen and i have fastboot highlighted. Any help greatly appreciated. Finally tried to root and stuck but i can just power it off if i hit the power button again it goes back a screen with option to power off and that works. Windows 7 32bit.

I believe when you are able to launch into recovery and do something like a nandroid backup.

dang it, I want to do this but XDA seems to be down or something. I can't load it up. It just keeps trying to load.

And, if I have software number .6, do I need to downgrade to .1?

so many posts to read through, can I use this method if I rooted using the idiot proof guide already and achieved the "part 1 root"?

Cool Rooted or not?????

Ok i am trying to beleave i am rooted and trying to set my wifi for tethering, but it keeps dropping the wifi and i have to keep resetting it. Is that a known issue or is there something i need to do to set it up properly? I did see a recovery screen option or something when the 3rd step finished. Or is this the real sign that i am not rooted? t/u

Ok I did this root and followed the guide, the root was easy to do. The hard part was installing the adp drivers. When I finished I was left with a somewhat OEM ROM that seems to be like a pre-release version because it's glitchy with the volume controls, the main weather app doesn't update properly, the phone is laggy starting calls, and the music widget in the lock screen tends to freeze a bit when you use it. I have no "sudo" app in my apps list.

Am I missing something? because I want to enhance my phones performance, not reduce it. I appreciate all the work the devs are putting in to these roots but there should be work put into helping noobs like me.
