    So I just decided I wanna mess with my phone a little bit.

    I bought the phone and it had 2.2 already on it, does that mean I can't root my phone?

    Also, I downloaded launcher pro but I cant really do anything with it.. Is there any tips or do I need to get launcher pro plus, and is there a way to get it for free?

    Also is there a way to get beautiful widgets for free?

    And whats the easiest and best way to customize my phone?

    And if theres any suggestions you guys have please feel free to help me! I'm a n00b! haha

    also, im currently in Orlando, and the 4G speed is awesome! Hope its the same back home in Dallas!

    You can still root your phone. I've never rooted so I don't know how.

    IMO Sense destroys Launcher Pro in every way (plenty on this forum will disagree with me). It is what it is...just get as many widgets as you can if you really want to use it. I just always end up going back to Sense.

    There's always a way to get files free. Maybe not legally. Torrent.

    Easiest and best way (IMO) to customize is just to play with Sense. Tap and hold, widgets, apps, shortcuts, etc.

    Go to launcherpro.com to buy it, i think the developers deserve the money well they had work on this for a while so i recommended you to get them, press menu on the launcher pro and the preferences and you will see really cool customization on it

    Here is a vid of my launcher last week now it looks way different tho

    I believe that we're still patiently waiting for the devs at XDA to find an exploit to allow rooting a 2.2 Evo and until then... no root for you, sorry.

    Suggest checking the All Things Root section at the top of the front page of this forum - when it breaks loose, it's probably going to get announced there - with a pointer to the right instructions.

    Meanwhile, it's never too soon to start learning the ins and outs of rooting, this is the most excellent starting point:

    http://androidforums.com/all-things-root-evo-4g/129648-noobs-you-confused-here-quick-intro-rooting-get-your-bearings-before-plunging.html

    I don't condone software copyright piracy - the devs worked hard, they charged very little for what they provided.

    That said - Launcher Pro is free. Just search for it by that very name in the Market.

    Launcher Pro Plus gives a bit more in the way of goodies for only 3 bucks - cheap!
