    I am guessing that I have to remove unrevoked before using this? Will this give me write access to /system?

    So when you root the device does it delete everything?

    You should have the same abilities as all the other root methods since this gives you full root so yes, but still read up on what u should and shouldn't delete.

    Rooting your phone won't make it so you can delete the sprint apps, you need to flash a custom rom which is made without the sprint apps installed. Rooting your phone DOES allow you to flash the custom rom however.

    Myself, I'm going to wait to use this method until a few more of the bugs are worked out. I've read up today on his newest updates and they sound promising but I still see people having issues. Also didn't someone mention that Unrevoked is working on something like this?

    he is right about flashing a rom to remove it, and you are able to remove using ADB

    Can't Root Explorer be used to remove stock apps from the rooted Evo? I've used it on my rooted Moment often and it works perfectly

    Yes you can remove the applications without flashing to a new ROM. I am 100% positive, as I have done it over and over.

    After NAND was unlocked and we had R/W capabilities, I started doing it this way. I also used this method on my hero.

    Get root explorer its the easiest way to remove apps and well worth it. Most of the stuff with batch zip files was before NAND was unlocked.

    This is not true. As long as you have full root with nand unlock you can remove anything you want without loading a custom. In fact, you can use Titanium Backup (free) to just "point and remove."

    You can also simply open up the zip file that contains any rom and just delete the apps you don't want. You don't even need nand unlock for that. If it ain't in the rom zip file it won't be on the EVO.

    sticky this so people stop using the messy methods they might not understand how to do in the first place

    I saw this but decided to use TheBiles guide to root by Evo so that I could learn something. I'm actually really glad that I did. Moving forward I'll feel comfortable using flashboot, adb, flashing roms, booting into recovery, etc. It took longer but if you want to understand what you're doing to your phone it's worth it.

    Props to the guy who put this together though. It looked really easy.
