    Im looking to root my evo with these instructions

    {tutorial} how to root \0/ - xda-developers

    but i am a little confused. i can get the file onto the sd card but then it says to plug the phone in and run

    adb shell mv /sdcard/PC36IMG.zip /sdcard/root-PC36IMG.zip




    is this a linux command? are you capable of rooting a phone with only a windows 7 based machine

    all these people on here have done toast's way, but no one can answer if they had windows based machines.

    I just did it this way with a windows 7 machine (32). I did not have any problems.

    "adb shell mv /sdcard/PC36IMG.zip /sdcard/root-PC36IMG.zip"
    This is a command that you type into the cmd(dos) screen
