    I'm looking for advice on the simplest and easiest way to root. I know theres something that wipes the phone, rolls back to 2.1 and then roots it. I just got my second evo because my first overheats. It came with 2.2, is that an issue?

    What do I need to know about roms? I hear fresh evo is a good one. I don't mind losing all the sprint stuff as well as HTC. I prefer launcher pro so any widget loss doesn't bother me.

    If anyone can just throw me a few links? I heard about the method to rollback 2.2, root it then whatever, but everywhere I found today from that day says that a simpler method should be out in a couple weeks. It has been a month, is there a simple point and click method yet?

    Check out the link in my sig also. I did this and it all works like a charm. No ROMS yet, but rooted and working just fine.

    What do I need to worry about? What about 4G and the camera. I heard there were issues with getting those to work with other ROMs, is that fixed now? I'm thinking of trying fresh evo

    Also if I do a full wipe, it isn't going to wipe the settings for my number, is it? As soon as its up I can still make and receive texts and calls, right?

    I know my camera worked just fine when I flashed the stock rooted ROM. No problems with numbers or texts. I'm not sure about the custom ROMs though, it seems they each have certain things that work differently.
