Default EVO 4G Gingerbread update now has root via Revolutionary



Revolutionary S-OFF & Recovery tool

Revolutionary is a tool to give you S-OFF on your phone and optionally flash a custom recovery image to your Android phone. A custom recovery image allows you to perform advanced tasks on the system partition, such as flashing custom ROMs and taking a full backup of your phone (a “nandroid” backup). We recommend installing the custom recovery image for all users who want rooted phones.

The current version of Revolutionary, 0.4pre3, is a developer preview. We still haven't made it perfectly easy to use for everyone, but we want power users and developers to be able to get started. If you're not a developer, feel free to try it out anyway; but you'll have to be patient with us while we iron out the wrinkles.

You can download Revolutionary from our site, http://revolutionary.io/.

Windows users, please download and install these HTC fastboot drivers.

Revolutionary comes with NO WARRANTY (express or implied), and NO GUARANTEE OF FITNESS for any particular task. Although we have attempted to minimize the risk the best we can, the authors disclaim any chance of damage to your phone. The entire risk of running Revolutionary lies with you, the user.

HTC Desire (bravo) 0.93.0001, 1.02.0001

Here I was so excited, this morning when I found this.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1218386 Now, I find I'm a day late and a dollar short.

I'm in the process of moving over the next week, so I will have to put my rooting plans on hold, till that's over.

Make sure you keep holding the volume button down until it fully powers up and goes into bootloader. Sounds like you aren't keeping it down long enough.

Turn off fast boot? That might be his hang up

*EDIT*
Just rooted mine with no issues. Works great but the Beta Key is a bit confusing to read copy and paste into notepad for easier reading.

Don't just turn off the phone, do a full battery pull. Should work, that's where i had the problem, as simple and stupid as it sounds.
