    This is certainly a milestone in Android history.... and it happened before the phone was even officially released. Wowsers.

    Pictures of the root process moved up to first post.

    Starting Evo Froyo update!!!

    [​IMG]
    Transfer the update ZIP to SDCARD

    [​IMG]
    Wipe data and dalvik cache after reboot into recovery. To do this, boot into the bootloader (vol down+power), choose Recovery, connect usb to computer, run recovery-windows.bat

    [​IMG]
    Choose Update from SDCARD

    [​IMG]
    Ahhh so scary!

    [​IMG]
    Success!

    [​IMG]
    Boots just fine. Setting up...

    [​IMG]
    FROYO HOMESCREEN!

    [​IMG]
    What the, it automatically "Restored" my apps. Is Froyo getting smart?

    [​IMG]
    New Market look. Automatic updating!

    [​IMG]
    This is going to make the Market comments much more useful.

    [​IMG]
    Buttons look different in Gmail.

    HOLY F@#K JIT is awesome.

    [​IMG]
    Google Wave is probably the slowest, javascript-heavy site out there. It loads!

    [​IMG]
    I don't remember being able to do this with the past browsers. V8 engine in the new Froyo browser.

    Unable to Wireless Tether :(

    Once someone comes up with an Overclocked Kernel you'll really want to root :D

    Wireless tether is no go. Froyo JIT is raping Linpack.

    This was a triumph!
