    Hi i have htc evo 4G with sprint and this is the software information

    droid 2.1-update1
    baseband: 2.05.00
    Kernel: 2.6.29
    software number: 1.47
    PRL version: 60667

    and i've been trying to root this so i can use other application and wifi tether however everytime i tried i always get this error " MAIN FOLDER IS OLDER , MAIN UPDATE FAIL!"

    I used unrevoked - does not work then i restore to factory setting THEN i tried simpleroot get message Main Folder is older, main update fail!. I also have tried to do Restart the PHONE and press the power button and hold the volume button up (but i have upload the PC36IMG.ZIP before i reboot) THIS does not work either get same message.

    IF anyone can help me with this root and PM me your PAYPAL i willing to pay $10 to give me detail instruction (step by step how to get this root)

    After rooter i need to know if possible to update somehow to get my FLASH working or it have to be update to droid 2.2 (if i update to 2.2 after rooted, will it lose all my rooted previously assuming its already successfully rooted)

    Thank You

    You don't need to pay anyone to fix this. What you need to do is try one of the one click methods to rooting, or follow a detail guide over at xda-developers.com on how to root software version 1.47, as it is different than software version 1.32, which is why you are getting that message.

    Look for directions for flashing the engineering bootloader

    Have you read the instructions in the Rooting for Dummies Guide? Look under After rooting. you will need to download the s-on tool and the ruu for your hboot version.
