Roam Control App to control Sprint Roaming

Just and FYI..i have been looking for this since I got my EVO. I have terrible service at work and I loved the Roam only feature on my old Winmo phone. Well I have been monitoring a thread over at XDA and finally I found this.

I installed it on both my EVO's and it works great...I don't even have to reboot when I change from Home to Roam and back.
FYI I am running Fresh 3.2.0 on both phones and of course you must be rooted. Just thought I'd share

Re: Roam Control App to control Sprint Roaming

Awesome! Thanks! Like you, I have a few areas where I need to force one mode or the other and have wanted a way to change quickly. Some people may complain about the $4 charge, but I think it's totally worth it for as often as I anticipate using it.

Re: Roam Control App to control Sprint Roaming

Aw, I need this but I'm not rooted. Is there a backup program to make rooting less terrible?

What kind of phone? Just root real quick and it will be better.

I'm sorry, but before you go through all that trouble, please be aware that the app currently doesn't support the Epic or the Moment. (Highlighted so you don't miss it, I don't want you to re-do everything and then find out the app doesn't work)

There is something different about the Samsung phones that makes forcing roam even more difficult. Wait for an update that (hopefully) supports the Samsung phones.

Re: Roam Control App to control Sprint Roaming

Maybe I missed something, but it doesn't work for me. When I switch to Roam, I get the X over the signal bars, like I am in airplane mode. I already uninstalled and got a refund, so now if I try it again, it's non-refundable.

Any ideas? Anybody have the same problem?
