    I rooted using a video i found on youtube. the process involved using unrevoked and amon_ra, i downgraded to 2.1 and loaded a stock sense 2.2. However, as i was exploring and reading up on roms i saw that many people said that unrevoked was a bad way to go due to some problems. So now im scared to load any roms/themes. is there a way for me to switch my root from the unrevoked method to the other method?

    Once you're at 2.1 you can just use "simple root 3 click". That's what I did on the first time rooting. The second time I used unrEVOked 3.21 and installed the eng hboot. Both ways allowed me to flash any Rom that I desired, including CM6. Best of luck!

    So far, no. I haven't tried loading cm6 after installing eng boot though. I've only ran Baked Snack 1.8 and Fresh 3.3 since rooting the newest phone.

    Well i was actually going to flash fresh right before this thread but then i decided to ask but since it worked for u with unrevoked imma do it now. and i read somewhere that cyanogen 6 will only work with unrevoked with certain eng's and i believe the one u installed is the correct one.

    You should be ok flashing Fresh, but if you're going to use the Fresh Updater, you'll need to switch to Amon RA as your recovery and configure the updater to look for updates. I did this through "rom manager". At the bottom of the "rom manager" application there is an option to "flash alternate recovery". The instructions for configuring Fresh Updater can be found on xda and flipz website Geek For Me – Sprint Evo 4g & CDMA Hero Home of Fresh ROM and CDMA Android Development
