Where is the list showing what versions of the EVO are supported? I have 2.10 and I had to look all over before finding out it wasn't supported last week. Any help would be appreciated. And it is New Years Eve, so be in a festive mood and be easy on me all of you angry posters.

And after I post this I go to their site and the first line says it supports 2.10. Ok, I deserve it, insult away.

I noticed the SLCD problem with my wife's DInc, but I just installed an SLCD compatible recovery. Then installed ROM Manager, and it had an update. Thanks for a working version now! I thought at first I broke it...again (I accidentally 'recovered' her phone with the old version)

I just rooted my Evo with Hboot 2.10 and the 3.70 update. Very Very easy! Too easy! lol.

3.3 didn't work on my Evo. It went through the whole process at at the end it said "Error: failed to get root. Is you firmware too new?"

Only suggestion on their site is that there might be SOME application installed that interferes with it. I uninstalled a few, tried again, and failed again.


Same here. I put my phone into Disk Mode and it worked.

crxssi says:

Could you please explain in much more detail? For example- WHEN did you put USB in "disk mode"? Thanks

I did it before opening up unrevoked. Then I ran it and let unrevoked do its work and followed whatever instructions it said to do.

crxssi says:

OK, I added the disk mode to the procedure and things looked quite different this time- three reboots, too.

Scared me near the end, since on the third reboot it sat on a boot screen forever. But one more boot and it worked! Thank you

Go Android! says:

Watch this youtube video for like 5 minutes. I say 5 minutes because after you start Unrevoked, you just let it do the rest.


crxssi says:

I found the video to be strange/not useful. Didn't match doing it in Linux at all. But thanks for trying to help :)

Won't open on my mac...

htabbach says:

I got an error message saying the push was failed, terminating.

Brian Rubin says:

I used the release candidate yesterday to root my 0003 EVO with a 2.02 bootloader, and it went swimmingly. No problems what so ever. :)

robotaholic says:

I love this. Worked perfectly. I went straight to cyanogenmod and got latest version. And this Rom is east and kicks ass! I went from stock evolution to overclocked cyanogen lol loving wifi tether and CPU ovrclck and this flys!

Just used this to root my new EVO and it worked perfectly. Was so quick and easy.

KUDOS! I can't emphasize this too much: KUDOS! In less than 5 minutes I had my EVO rooted, and without a single bit of lost data!

Guys you are in a word: AWESOME!

Need help im getting something no ones mention, when I run the program it go's all the way to running rooting. Then the screen saids communications with phone unexpectedly interrupted try again.
I did it twenty times. What am I not getting.

Kwdan says:

When I did mine...after I updated Android 1.0 and received the bootloader interface complete. I still got the add new hardware message 3 times. Everytime the phone reboots. It worked , but is that part of the process. It always says "new hardware found". I am running windows xp. Also how do I know if I am using the latest version, I did mine in February 2011.
