    Well there's been a lot of people waiting for this and it is currently confirmed to successfully root newer phones. Last I heard, however, the beta was recently closed but expected to reopen soon. So those with newer models and looking to root, keep an eye on the unrevoked page and their twitter and you'll soon be rooted. Enjoy.

    Update: Here is the link if you want to check it out. This is still in beta testing! If you are not feeling daring, just wait for the "official" release - it should come soon since it sounds like the beta is going well.

    Update2: changed the link to the current one (thanks ovrrdrive).

    unrevoked3 v3.30-rc3 beta testing

    I am so siked for this!

    Now I can put off that manual root that I have been researching lately... Good thing I have hboot 2.2

    Here's hoping that the beta is back up by the end of the weekend!

    I was just about to go through the manual root method to get rid of the bloatware and underclock, but this news will make me wait.

    is there any reason to update unrevoked if you're already rooted on 3.6?

    It didn't work for me. I have the 2.10 HBoot. Hopefully it comes out of beta soon and works for 2.10!

    EDIT: I did notice that the bootloader now shows S:Off on my phone. Does that mean that all I need to do now is install a custom ROM and I'm fully rooted?

    Is there a good stock rooted ROM out there for the new update? (I basically only want root to delete bloatware and run wireless tether; other than that, I'd like my phone stock).

    Thanks!

    The question is do you have a recovery method installed??? If not, then the answer to your question is "No"! You can't flash any custom ROMs without a recovery. Have you tried installing root only apps to see if they work? You might be in a "soft root" state which might allow you to use root only apps

    Best place to start is to download the android tether app from the guys that have been doing the google code thing... it's on the Android Market and called "Wireless Tether for Root Users" You don't use the Sprint app.

    YES! Downloaded the BETA (beware!) unrevoked and ran it, worked like a charm on my /Stock Sprint 3.70/BL 2.02/HW 0003 EVO.

    I like how someone in another forum said "Rooting will forever change your relationship with the device." So true, the moment that unrevoked said "done" it is like the device changed ownership from Sprint to me. It used to be Sprint's gadget with my phone number on it, now it's my gadget with Sprint's account on it.

    I just wanted to throw my experience into the mix. The beta with my 2.10 hboot worked, i think. I havent loaded a rom but I now see the superuser permissions icon and my hboot says s-off.

    I don't know if I can either. ;)

    By the way, the link in the OP is dead now as was mentioned in the post at XDA. However, being keen in the way of the internet ways I was able to deduce that if the RC2 link is dead and outdated that they might just change it to RC3. Here's the updated link:

    So if I have already loaded the HBOOT drivers can I just go ahead and download the reflash.exe and go from there?

    I haven't been able to see for sure if the directions for the older version work in the new. I just joined the irc to get some feedback. There are plenty of people in it but only about 3 actually talking... lol

    Hey, question, the directions for the hboot windows USB drivers show that the device manager should show "Android Bootloader Interface," whereas mine shows "Android Composite ADB Interface." Can I still use those to root my phone?
