If you're a serious Android enthusiast, you've probably at least thought of rooting your device, and chances are even higher that you've actually done it.  If you're an EVO 4G owner directions for rooting the phone were available by the time the device launched.  However, in a recent update from Sprint, a security patch was included that rendered the original method of rooting unusable, that is if your phone didn't get bricked.  Of course, I wouldn't be writing this if there wasn't good news for root-eager EVO 4G owners.  The latest root strategy has been released today via an xda-developers thread that makes use of "a vulnerability in the EVO's Flash Lite build."  There are 12 steps to this root with the final directions being not to accept any future OTA updates, unless you want to lose your root.  If you're not confident enough to go it alone, there's a video, here, that will help you get through it.  But please be sure to heed the usual warning to root at your own risk, and if you do give it a shot, let us know!
