Thanks to the Unrevoked and AlphaRev teams, I have a rooted EVO 3D! I can now take screenshots, use my phone as a hotspot, backup my data, and use custom ROM’s. I used the instructions on XDA. Which were pretty painless. For those that are not very excited about messing with their phone very much there are temporary root solutions out there that will allow for backups, screen captures, and hotspot access. I found it irritating that I needed a computer to execute the root process every time that I wanted to do something requiring root on my 3D.
It’s out there and available, give it a shot 🙂
