Default unrEVOked3 vs. forever?

I'm just about to hit GO on the rooting process here, and now I'm confussed again. What is unrevoked forever for? or is it not something I need to worry about.

Thanks in advance.

It's not something you need to worry about. Unrevoked Forever is included when you root using Unrevoked 3.2.

Frenchy you are the man (that should be included in the "for dumbies"), I'm nervous about the root, but getting everything downloaded now. Just not sure if I've got the balls to hit go. lol

If you're new to rooting, flashing, etc., I'd recommend using ROM Manager (until you're comfortable manually booting and navigating in recovery) to begin with to download and flash Myn's Warm RLS4.

Out of curiosity, which hboot/build version is your phone (ie: 00.97, 3.30.xxx.x)?

Just making sure you had a build/hboot that was rootable via unrevoked. Unfortunately I'm not available to live chat.

I thought the difference between the two were one unlocks nand and the other does not?

I say this only cuz I used UnRevoked3, originally to root my Evo, but just recently unlocked Nand using their Forever patch.

Sort of. By default, unrevoked3 includes unrevoked forever for the Evo, Incredible, and the Desire (CDMA). The purpose of unrevoked3 is to give you a custom recovery and it will also root your rom, but it also gives you s-off via unrevoked forever. I believe you can disable it if you want, to give you partial root (don't flash unrevoked forever, and leave s-on). There's also been a problem lately where the unrevoked forever included in unrevoked3 isn't flashing correctly after clockwork has been flashed. People have had to flash it manually.
