Default I just want to root my Evo 4G

For the past 2 days, I have been trying at all means to root my HTC Evo 4g. I've tried unrEVOked, z4root, SuperOneClick, Universal Androot, GingerBreak, rEVOlution, etc. none have given me the results I am looking for.

Whoever said its as easy as 1, 2 ,3 is wrong on so many levels. Nothing worked...i've spent literally 2 days trying to root this phone in order to get a better battery and delete junk apps, but this is so complicated...

Help would be appreciated.

o.k...when you said you tried revolutionary, was it this guide? or something similar?
I assume your bootloader says nothing about locked or unlocked correct?
And I assume with that hboot version, your desired results were to be s-off correct?

When I tried revolutionary it just said "Waiting on mobile device...." I thought it had something to do with the software I have. But correct!

Did you select to have USB debugging on? When you plug in the phone to the computer how many icons pop up on the stat bar?
