    hey everyone, so i decided to root my evo using the rooting for dummies gingerbread thread. Ive got S-off but when i try to flash the phone with the su2 file "superuser permission" it says no files found. When selecting the zip file on my card it goes from su2 then

    :meta-no files found
    :system- no files found

    there are no files found on either folder or sub folder.
    i tried to redownload this file on another computer but i just get that countdown clock over and over again without the actuall file downloading.

    anysuggestions? also i first got the file onto the phone from downloading it on my mac and dragging it to the phone. i only did this since my windows pc cant download the file as stated above.

    If it was on a Mac, did it unzip the file when it downloaded?

    is it zipped or extracted? the file can't be extracted. i think mac's might unzip the file as it downloads. not very familiar with macs.

    You can download it from this link and save it to your SD card. Boot into Hboot by holding the vol-down button and pressing power. Select recovery, then select flash custom zip. Should do the trick and get you rolling.
