    I had used unrevoked3 (NOT unrevoked 3.21) back when I had the Stock 2.1 running on my evo. I recently flashed a stock rooted Froyo ROM, which I've been running for the last few days. If I understand my research correctly, I don't have NAND unlocked because unrevoked3 was not a "full root". What is the easiest way to get the full root now? Can I run unrevoked forever and/or unrevoked3.21 over my current setup? Or would I have to unroot by running a stock RUU, accept the OTA to get back to stock 2.2, and then run unrevoked 3.21?

    You can run unRevoked Forever over your current setup. Not sure about 3.21 though...

    Thanks -- I will do that, then. And just to clarify, does running unrevoked Forever unlock NAND and make it a so-called "full root"?

    unRevoked Forever will unlock nand permanently and give you S-OFF. I think unRevoked 3.21 is safe to use as well but don't quote me on that.

    I have your same problem. I forgot why I didn't do the unrevoked forever, I thought I read that people where having problems w/ the phone after doing it or there wasn't away to change the S-Off back to S-On if need be.

    My question now is did you run UF? if you did how's the phone? I was also thinking about just trying to use Unrevoked 3.2 over my already 2.2 root, wasnt' sure if that would hurt the phone so didn't try that either.
