    Just rooted my Evo yesterday. I don't know the name of the method I used but its the one that calls for you to place the file called "PC36IMG.zip" on the root of your sd card and then reboot into the boot loader.

    I followed the instruction and it seemed to flash ok, but now i'm trying to find out where to find the terminal/CLI so I can delete unwanted stock app like amazon music shop or nascar tv.

    All the instructions say to open the terminal or CLI and type in a particular path in order to delete the apks that those apps use. The problem is the guides never say where to find the terminal. Is it somewhere on the phone? Is it something I download, do i need to connect the phone to a linux computer to find the terminal?

    Can anybody help me out with this so I can get rid of these apps. Thanks.

    I too am looking to learn more about this. I'd like to find Dropbear or some other SSH daemon so I can SSH in. I'd also like to install Apache or similar, but that's a different beast in and of itself..

    ps. ConnectBot has a "local" setting and you CAN get a LOCAL shell prompt (you may have to root the phone like I did though).

    By a CLI, I believe you are referring to ADB. Check out the thread below for a great tutorial. You can run ADB Shell to get to your phone's busybox install (providing your ROM has it).
