    My phone is 100% stock and I just installed the most recent OTA update (incredible by the way).

    Can I root my phone now or do I have to wait for the rooting tools to be updated for this most recent OTA update?

    I am completely new to rooting and have no clue where to start.

    Thanks.

    I'd like to know as well. Does unrevoked 3.21 work? I've tried half a dozen times on my mac and it gets stuck at "waiting for reboot".

    I did the update and rooted with unrevoked the next day. It's still rootable. Went along without a hitch I might add. Never rooted before either so it was new to me.

    You should do unrevoked forever before you apply the OTA update. This will switch the radio to S-OFF just to be safe. Then you would run unrevoked 3.21 after the OTA.

    If you have already applied the OTA update, then you can run unrevoked 3.21 to re-root.

    Regards,

    Tom

    Thank u for ur input however this answer isn't help to our question. I, repeat myself, we already applied the OTA without previous root. Not "re-root".

    Unrevoked has been proven to root a previously unrooted ota evo

    Do all the functions work ok after using Unrev 3.21 on a stock 2.2 with an OTA already installed?

    Any problems at all?

    Did the wireless tether 0.9 work?

    Thanks!!
