Talking unrEVOked 3.0

Thought I'd share this interesting read with yall.....Stolen from xda.

unrevoked link: http://unrevoked.com/#evo

I haven't seen a thread about this, and it looks like this method is fairly fresh. I figured I'd give it a try...and it doesn't seem to work.

It gets hung up on the "flashing recovery image" part.

**Edit**

You have to remove HTC Sync AND the drivers that come with it. When I first tried this, I just installed the USB drivers that unrEVOked came. Looks like you have to totally removed anything from HTC before this can work.

And yes, it does work.

***If I helped you an any way plz hit THANKS.

Original Link: HERE

Re: unrEVOked 3.0

Can someone post the unrevoked 3.0 apk on here?

For some reason, when i go to the link the unrevoked page comes up with all the htc phones, and when i go to select the EVO, nothing happens, it's like it's stuck on that page for some reason.

Thanks in advance fellas.....

There is no .apk. There is an extract .exe and you will need to install drivers onto your computer in order to perform this root method. It only takes 5 minutes tops.

Yes it works for people with the latest OTA, however your issue may be one of two things. First make sure you uninstalled HTC Sync and any HTC Drivers, then make sure you installed the hboot drivers.

Also, you can go to the xda thread for help, they may already have an answer there.

Re: unrEVOked 3.0

Yep i keep trying all the night/morning long and finally erased htc sync & htc drivers worked perfectly afterwards ... Say hello to 3g and 4g tethering no issues. Also my sprint hotspot was already working for 4g even when i use the phone hooked up as pc modem but since the phone/signal drops in & out of 4g coverage this is a much better option for me/us...PS3 is will now be used online more often... Can't wait for froyo (fully functional) by sprint or otherwise just hope that i don't have to re root again...but if so we'll be fine...

Re: unrEVOked 3.0

I'm a bit confused here as to what exactly this does. Does this do a similar root as the original one click where all of the apps, games & config of the phone stay put or do I need to reinstall everything/ setup? Does it rewrite the rom to slipstream it in?

I am OTA'ed unfortunately and lost my root like everyone else. I'm a bit uncomfortable with the other root methods. Sorry n00b.

It does basically the same thing as the last one, doesn't wipe your device, only difference is that this one flashes a custom recovery.
