    I'm hoping someone can advise me on the best path to take from where I am. Basically, I like the look and feel (and stability) of a stock rom, and the only real reason I'd like root access is for wireless tethering (and maybe Titanium Backup).

    I got my Evo on the day it was released, and rooted using unrevoked3 back in July. Only after doing that did I realize that unrevoked3 sometimes causes some problems because it's not a full root.

    I did not accept the OTA 2.2 because, even though I was OK losing root and then re-rooting whenever 2.2 could be rooted, I saw that people trying to accept the OTA over unrevoked3 were having major problems. I waited around for something that seemed to be a good, stable stock rooted 2.2 rom, and finally flashed it a few days ago. This is the ROM that I used: ♠♠♠[ROM]♠♠♠ UPDATED 9/8 Froyo 2.2, v3.28.651.6 │Rooted│ DeOdexed RevF1 - xda-developers.

    I used Clockwork (because I couldn't figure out how to get Amon Ra) to do a wipe of data and cache, and the flash the ROM and radio/WiMax. I restored everything with Titanium, and it generally has been functional. However, I'm having the following problems:

    1) The battery is draining at an alarming rate -- about 10% per hour, and I have the seidio 3500 battery. Before flashing, I was losing about 3% per hour.

    2) It seems to be often trying to sync my Google contacts and getting hung up. I believe I have greatly reduced this problem by installing a Gmail patch today that was posted in the thread in which I got the ROM.

    3) The 3G, CDMA, and Wimax signals are all noticeably weaker than they were pre-flash.

    So basically, I'm not sure where to go from here. I don't know if there's anyway I can do a full root/unlock NAND now (which might be the culprit). I also don't know how I can use Amon Ra instead of Clockwork (which might be the culprit). All I'm trying to do, as I said, is get a stable, rooted 2.2 ROM with the same battery life and signal strength I had before. Any suggestions on where to go from here?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. I was already running root with 2.1 (but had used unrevoked3, not Simple Root). I am beginning to think that I might want to unroot with the RUU, go to stock 2.2, and then root that with unrevoked 3.21 once that is finalized and realized (since unlike unrevoked3, people seem to be happy with it).

    I was just hoping someone might have a suggestion for what I could try, given my situation and my goals/desires...

    I did this fine last nite, took awhile cause I had a few issues, but all in all a great process. I went from the video to the thread and back again. It really takes both to get it done if you are a NOOB like me! One thing I did notice from the OP, is that he is still on 2.1 and wants a 2.2 ROM, that will not work-I think! Someone correct me if I am wrong...:D

    A few things, first you should update your radios, baseband and wimax. These can be gathered from flips site, geekforme.com. you can only flash one at a time, and need to wipe Dalvik and cache. I would also install quickboot from app market since it allows you to boot directly to recovery. Also, any programs that seem to be causing you problems, you need to clear the data in titanium backup, tyese could be causing you power issues. This should be a place to start, good luck and let me know if you have any more questions
