Root How to root evo

Will the current unrevoked 3.21 root my month old Evo?

Depends on what HBOOT you have. If it is 2.02...then no, it is not rootable via unrevoked. To check what HBOOT you have...power the phone down...and then boot it up by holding volume down and the power button at the same time. A white screen will come up with different colored writing and 3 android dudes on skateboards at the bottom. The second line in that writing will have the HBOOT version for your phone....Mine says:

HBOOT-0.97.0000

If yours says 2.02, then it is not rootable via this unrevoked.
