    Go to the revolutionary.io site. Check the sticky in this forum. Unrevoked it outdated and won't work any more.

    Yep, wrong root method.

    You need to use revolution

    And please, rule #1 of rooting is read, read, read, read before doing anything to your phone. And also, ask questions here! This is a great group of Evo junkies that has the answer to most any question you may have about your phone. Truly the best Evo community you can find anywhere.
