    *Im writing this as a person who doesnt have an EVO 4G phone yet.*

    Its my understanding from browsing the EVO sub-section that 2.2, "Froyo" is available for rooted users. And on Froyo you will be able to download and install apps from the app market on the SD card. So my main question is, #1.

    1: Is it better to root and upgrade to 2.2 or just root.
    2: Are apps installed on the SD card able to be saved on a computer?
    [if yes to 1] Is this going to start a new trend of cracked apps similar to the iPhone?
    3: It was most-likely a troll but is it true that iPhone apps can be emulated/ported to the Android?
    4: Is the market place viewable from an application similar to iTunes and the iTunes Store?
    5: Is the boot playback customizable, similar ro the custom boot animations on the Droid?

    Will probably have more questions before I officially get the phone..:rolleyes:

    1. No need to do anything, until fully functional ROM's are released. Give it a week.
    2. Yes, wait for Froyo. Cracked apps already happening,
    3. Yes, but they are totally re-written by devs.
    4. Yes.
    5. Yes, it should be.

    Thanks for timely response.

    1: You say wait a week. Would I be waiting on 2.2 Froyo or 2.2 Rosie?
    4: Does it install on my computer automatically or where is it available to download?

    And thanks for the suggestion to the xda developers site.

    1. Custom ROM's will start being released on xda
    4. Custom ROM's or Froyo equal apps to sd. Then you can easily move them to pc.
