    Do you still have custom recovery? If so you can just flash superuser or superSU.

    This is what I would do.

    You'll want to go here and download "Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip", then flash it through recovery as if it were a ROM. Don't worry, flashing the zip will not erase anything.

    I moved this to the HTC Evo Design All Things Root sub forum so you can get some better eyes on your thread :)
