    I would like to root my phone mainly to remove unused apps that came on the phone. I've been reading info on here about doing so. Can someone tell me if I need to use HTCDev or Unrevoked. Do they not do the same thing? If I need Unrevoked do I do 3 and Forever?

    Thanks. I'll do some more reading. I'm sure I'll have some more questions before doing this.

    We're always here to help.

    HTC Dev is a little harder to do than unrevoked or revolutionary, but you should be fine
