    Is your Evo flashed to boost already or are you looking to do that?
    Do you know if it is rooted yet?
    Here is a link to rooting the phone:
    http://androidforums.com/evo-4g-all...-rooting-gingerbread-2-3-5-dummies-guide.html

    You can post back here what it says in the bootloader screen and we can tell from that, the status of root or not.
    Pull the battery, wait about 20 seconds, put the battery back in.
    While holding the volume down button, press and hold power.
    A white screen will come up with info on it.
    Just post back here what it all says.:)

    The Evo never got the JB upgrade. So either you are running a JB style rom and you are rooted, or perhaps you do not have the Evo4G?

    Can you post back the info in your bootloader? That will identify the device and the root status:)

    Well, seeing as though you have posted over there already, and this thread basically just identified your device, I'll just leave it here to fall off the page.
    Perhaps I will get a mod to lock it.
    I'll take a look at your new thread over there:)
