    Ok so I am going to try and root my HTC evo with Android 2.2. My question is how can I make a backup or a nandroid backup before potentially screwing up my phone lol.

    P.S. I'm not totally dumb lol I had a motorola Droid on Verizon and had it rooted and running bugless beast. but with the Evo it's a required a lot more steps and programs lol.

    Before you're rooted, the most complete backup you can make is with an app. I recommend MyBackup / MyBackupPro. Once you're rooted, you can start doing nandroid backups as well.

    Ok I will definitely give that a try. next question, I hear that simple root is the way to go instead of using unrevoked. If i want to try simple root how does one incorporate that in the rooting of 2.2 method from XDA's website?

    Once you are downgraded to 2.1, you can run Simpleroot. Just make sure to have Simpleroot check for updates before you begin.
