    Okay, I followed the instructions on the HTC site and went throught the process to unlock my bootloader. I thought it did the trick. It reset my EVO 3D to factory reset. Then, I tried to install WiFi Tether and it said my phone wasn't rooted. What am I doing wrong? Am I missing a step here?

    You missed a few, actually :p

    First, read and follow the instructions here:

    [GUIDE] HTC Unlock Hboot 1.50 + TWRP Recovery + Root + Flash Ur Ass Off! [9.11.11] - xda-developers

    Start at the point where it says:

    That'll show you how to root your phone as-is. If you want to install a custom ROM, you have to pick one and install it the way that post 2 indicates. Here's the list of available ROMs:
