    I am going to be getting my Evo soon and it will most likely come with 2.2 Froyo. Now I am going to root my phone right away and want to use a custom kernel. Cyanogen-6, but some people are having trouble flashing it. Will this be a problem, I have root experience with the Hero and custom ROM's but I never heard anything about NAND unlock on the hero.

    Technically, you don't *have* to unlock nand, but if you want to flash ROMs, rooting is incomplete until you have.

    Yes, you have to have NAND unlocked to flash CM6. When you downgrade to 2.1, just use Simple Root rather than unRevoked to gain nand access.
