    while not a 100 % sure how they flash I would assume it consist of either rooting or doing at very least a temp root. Tell us what your Hboot is?

    Start with the guide and ask questions where you have them. I would read the guide at least 3 times before attempting.

    Yhea that one, so just follow all the instructions from the HTCDev mothod all the way,but two things I don't get steps2,&3 Can u explain more of them, what is the step 2 How to get Recovery? how to install amon ra 2.3 recovery / how to install amon ra2.3 with android flasher,( which one i choose ) And step 3 flash the su file or flash a rom, ( stay on stock or flash a rom, which one )( cause if I flash a custom rom it will screw up the boost flash right?) is this really needed

    you need to do both steps if you want to be fully rooted. step 2 is needed because you will need a recovery to flash the su zip file. it is not a rom so you should be ok. the su file is needed so that you can use root only apps like the wireless tethering app.

    ok you can either flash a custom rom that has the sprint hotspot hacked or you can use the wireless wifi tethering app found in this thread:http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...net-tethering-w-evo-4g-3g-wireless-wired.html.

    here is also the sprint hot spot hacked:
    [HotSpot Hack] Enable Hotspot on Gingerbread - xda-developers

    and can you be more specific as to what is going on when you try to tether? also what are you using to tether?
