    Hey guys today I went to best buy to exchange my evo cause of some minor issues. It had the new ota update installed so I thought it was a pain in the butt to root it. So I got the new evo and I checked the software number and I have 1.32.651.6. Is it easier to update this phone to the new ota and use the simpleroot method over in xda or do it manually using the 1.32.651.6?

    don't do the newest OTA! stay where you are and use the simpleroot method. Waaaayyy easier. At least it was for me. YMMV

    Theres a simple root method for the new update, but from what I understand it just removed the OTA update. I just picked my evo up last night as well. Running 1.32. I used the simple root and loaded Fresh 0.5.3. Running great with awesome battery life.
