    I know I know I am late to the evo party.
    I won it on ebay for 120. It is rooted.
    What should I do first. I am coming from an LG optimus (ugh) and looking forward to a more powerful phone.
    Any apps to recommend, any thing I can do since it is rooted....

    Thank you in advance-

    :eek:

    Welcome to the both of you!!!
    First thing I would recommend to a newly rooted EVO user is to do a nandroid, get titanium backup to backup your relevant apps, and flash a custom ROM!!!
    Do you know what ROM is currently on the phone?

    Instructions for ANYTHING you need to do can be found here in the life after root section:

    You can root an updated EVO, but it is much harder to do that the previous methods.
    Root guide is here:

    I have moved this thread to the rooting section where more of us with rooted EVO's will see it :D

    Were you using the guide next to #2 that goes with your 2.15 HBoot? Rooting for this HBoot is much easier.

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    where does it say this? the HTCdev method should work with what your phone has. just follow the guide that was linked earlier.


    i would read this:http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...ooting-dummies-guide-gingerbread-edition.html

    it has a ton of info that you should know including what is a nandroid backup and how to do one.

    Rule #1 for a newly rooted user....Get Amon RA 2.3 or above installed as your recovery (I prefer v 2.3)

    Rule #2 is ***flashing lights**** make a nandroid backup ***flashing lights***

    Rule #3 is flash MikG 3.11
