    Make sure that before you run Unrevoked, you remove all the other zip files from the root of your SD card

    at least that worked for me - Unrevoked would not get past the "Hboot" message and phone would reboot in an unrooted state. Once I cleaned them out and re-ran Unrevoked the root proceded normally.

    I had the same experience today. I didn't even rename the OTA .zip to "update.zip" or anything, just its presence seemed to disrupt the rooting process. Bizarre, but hey, easy fix. Thanks ~
