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

    WOW the dam bootloader couldn't find the ZIP in my 16gb microsd card, but when I switched to a 8gb one it worked... wasted so much time

    Pictures of the root process moved up to first post.

    Starting Evo Froyo update!!!

    Transfer the update ZIP to SDCARD

    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

    Choose Update from SDCARD

    Ahhh so scary!


    Boots just fine. Setting up...


    What the, it automatically "Restored" my apps. Is Froyo getting smart?

    New Market look. Automatic updating!

    This is going to make the Market comments much more useful.

    Buttons look different in Gmail.

    HOLY F@#K JIT is awesome.

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

    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!
