    Hi,

    I have been reading myself in circles & am a bit confused on which way to go. I am enjoying the Evo but I would like the wireless tether. I guess there are other rooted things in the future I could install but the big draw for me is replacing my wmwifirouter on my WM device on my Evo.

    I just dont know what the downsides are for one over other other. I think that Fresh has tethering already built in but I dont know if there are issues with the SD card or other items.

    Or should I just get the stock rom that is rooted over at XDA?

    Any advice would be great. I feel like i am stuck.

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Unrevoked Root is by far the easiest, if all you want to do is run root Apps (like WiFi Tether).

    I am pretty happy with the performance of the stock rom. I also dont really know any better but I am not really looking to deal with bugs/problems at this point. I think as the device gets more mature the processes & options will be better. Once 2.2 comes out, that will be another hurtle.

    Doesnt unrevoked 'unroot' after each reboot?

    Is there a benefit of fresh .02 vs unrevoked?

    Thanks,
    RIch

    Unrevoked takes 30 seconds and installing android-wif-tether another 30. 1 minute to freedom. :)

    since unrevoked is not permanent, does it void the warranty?

    No, it's just another app. (A really kickass app)

    quick question, when you root with revoked, I hear that it unroots after reboot. If I download the wifi tether before the reboot, then reboot, will the application be affected?

    NO! This is untrue. An older version of unrevoked worked like this. The new version "sticks" after reboot.

    Thanks all, I will give it a try. I rooted my Hero but was hesitant to root the EVO since it was already running 2.1

    I followed the instructions to root via unrevoked and I installed the the titanium backup. It now wants to me put the rooted stock rom on it. I thought unrevocked was an app. I really don't want to put a new ROM on, I just want wireless tether. Any thoughts? Do I need to put the custom ROM on to get access to the tether app? I'm confused, help please

    Is it OK to install Unrevoked, play with the wireless tether & then at some point install another Rom or is this the wrong order to do this?

    I just did it. Works great. Thanks! Wow, this is a great feature, but probably not worth 30 dollars a month.

    1 bar 4g and I got 2.37mbps down!
