    I promise I have read through this whole thread and not found an answer...I am a bit of a noob so my apologies.

    I have:


    I ran unrEVOked and then the next day I foolishly accepted the HTC update to gingerbread before I had a chance to do any backups or flash any new ROMs. Since I do have the S-OFF, does this mean I can re-root (update apparently unrooted)? If so, could someone please point me in the right direction? If not, I will go back to waiting like everyone else. Thanks in advance.

    if you have s-off then you are pretty much still rooted. do you have a custom recovery? if not then you can just flash a recovery. you can get it here:http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all-things-root/259446-clockwork-amon-ra-pc36img-files.html. after you have the recovery then you can just flash a rom.

    edit: almost forgot to welcome you to the forums. so welcome to the forums!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the welcome to the threads and the Info!

    I ran the latest clockwork recovery and then tried running rom manager and got the same SU error that originally made me think I was never properly rooted or that the update un-rooted me.

    Tried to run busybox and same errors... no such file in system/bin/su

    Should I wait for the next unrevoked or do you think I still have a chance?

    What happens when you try to go to recovery? Have you tried? You may not need to flash one at all. If you *do* need to reflash a custom recovery and choose to flash CW (Clockworkmod), flash 2.6, not 3.0....personally I recommend Amon RA, so you might wanna flash that one instead. Once you have a custom recovery, flash a different rooted ROM; I'm pretty sure that will fix your "SU" permissions issues. Keep us posted.

    What are.you using ROM manager for? As a general rule we almost always recommend staying away from it as it can be buggy, esp with regards to flashing roms.
