    I was worried at first, I am coming from one click jailbreaking of iPhones and homebrew on the Palm Pre.

    I managed to root my 2.2 Evo with relative ease. Just read all of the instructions carefully, then read them again. Really make sure you understand what you are about to do. If you're not sure, ask.

    If you install HTC sync, it should put the driver on your computer. If you're running windows7 x64, you'll need the version of Sync mentioned in the 2.2 root procedure.

    I found the driver, but when I try to extract I get copy errors. I am on X64 Win 7.
