    I just rooted using unrevoked.
    just curious who else has used it and what all have you done with your root access so far?

    I'm hoping I can use it to remove sprint apps. I'm waiting to do it until I stumble across how to remove them.

    If you want to remove sprint apps, dont use this method. Use the one toast created, because it allows you to flash a custom recovery and have write access to /system to be able to remove them. This unrevoked method doesn't allow using a custom recovery so you are SOL trying to remove anything.

    My phone comes Tuesday, after rooting that will be my first course of action as well.

    So the unrevoked method won't allow me to flash custom ROMs?

    Sorry for the newb question, but will the new method of rooting through Unrevoked completely wipe my Evo.... that is contacts and everything?

    no it will wipe nothing.
    just download the app, install and run it.
    nothing will be reset.

    No, you will have to use the other method over on xda forums by toast. It allows you to flash a custom recovery, wipe data, make a nandroid and flash a custom ROM. There are two roms that you can flash, froyo 2.2 (developmental beta) and a fully stock rooted 2.1.
    robtmathias, rosscan and suprmallet like this.

    I'll use Toast's method and apply the stock 2.1 ROM then.

    rooting and flashing to a 2.1 pure android Rom will remove sense completely right? It is stopping some apps I want to use from working.

    noob question, will 4G still work on stock 2.1? what about Froyo?

    You don't have to Root to not use sense. You can disable it by clearing defaults under Applications/HTC Sense UI

    oh yes, ive done that. I want it removed completely.

    You will have to wait until someone creates a custom 2.1 AOSP, it will have sense removed and will be basic android. I wouldn't expect to see one of these for a few weeks though. I think right now the priority is getting through the locked NAND. But dont worry, there will be plenty of custom ROMs for you eventually.

    Ok, I was reading everything I could find about the unrevoked root and I have already done it, but for some reason, my wireless tether will not work. I can start wireless tether on my phone, I can even find the network on my cpu... but when I connect to it, I cannot browse on the computer... any ideas?

    Um I'm a root newbie just looking for ideas.. I want to make homescreens etc. rotate to landacape. And enable 360 degree rotation..Can that be done now?

    well, you can add "root-worthy" apps, remove stock bloatware, install themes, and basically have complete control over your phone.

    From what I read further up in the thread, you can't remove bloatware using the unrevoked method, which this thread is about. I just want to be clear about that, I've been reading several root threads and someone mentioned Root Explorer allowed them to delete the bloatware, but I've yet to be able to do so. So I'm going to assume the earlier statement that we can not do that using unrevoked's method is correct.

    Also I'm not trying to be a dick haha, I'm just trying to be absolutely clear, because a lot of posts are not.
