How-to: Root the HTC Evo 4G - xda-developers
I'm all over it.
Here is another one from gadgetsteria.
How to root the htc evo 4g
I think I am gonna wait until we get full absolute control, I hate have to do everything through ADB.
I will just enjoy the phone for awhile.
Never rooted a phone, but for now there's not a lot you can do with it right? The main thing I'll be itching to do is make the homescreens, music app etc. rotate in landscape. It annoys me that it won't do it already especially with a kickstand. I just tend to hold these phones where they are in landscape. Can we get it to rotate right now with root or do we have to wait for someone to figure out how to do it?
Where do you place the file?? The root of the sd card?? Just not inside any folder?
correct, the root of the sd card (ie the top level (sd\) . . . . not in a subfolder (sd\documents, sd\photos, sd\ any folder name here)
Has anyone tried it from the forums... I have a google i/o phone but i dont know if im ready to make that move yet. Ive read everything isnt working on the 2.2 evo root yet.
