    First off i have never rooted my evo 4g ever before so this is completely bone stock and recently just updated to the new Gingerbread 2.3 software, I am new to this so I looked at some youtube tutorials and can't figure it out. I tried gingerbreak apk but it didn't work for me. I also tried to run the RUU program from evo4ghacks.com which is suppose to get it back to the 2.2 version and got nothing, and lastly downloaded the unrevoked program and got the same results. Need help guys where do i go from here. Thanks.

    Hi, since you have already updated to Gingerbread 2.3, you will have to wait until the developers unlock the Hboot on the 2.3. When they do, you will be able to Root. You will be glad you did. The rooted version of gingerbread blows the stock ota update out of the water.

    Hey guys, I've rooted several phones now including other Evos, but a friend of mine has asked me to root his, unfortunately he did the 2.3.3 update. Is there any way to roll back to the previous firmware?

    How long did the last hboot update take to unlock?
    I jumped on board after unrevoked3 was found.

    any report you see i would not trust. my main source will always be over on xda. if the devs have something, they usually will report there. i check there a few hundred times a day. lol
    you will know when there is one. we willhave a sticky and there will be posts and threads galore on the topic.
