    Anyone else excited about this as well? I am up in the air on whether to do it or not. After you root, does the gui look the same?


    unrevoked


    Love the release date of this is release date of phone.

    You need to check out the root directory above on the main site.

    But in short, yes. All root is (after permissions is installed) is like logging into Administrator on your computer - versus you usually using a guest account. The GUI will stay the same.

    Interesting ... I'm doin it. But will probably wait a week or two to get use to Android. Coming from WMobile Touch Pro and a JB itouch.

    That is just froyo, if you root you will still be on 2.1.

    I can't wait to root this beast, I miss my hero with a passion. Been without android for 2 weeks and it sucks.

    Edit:
    If you check over on XDA in the evo section, there is a big discussion of it there.
