This root does not work for Froyo. If you're reading this now, chances are very high that you already have Froyo or something higher, in which case stop and don't run steps from this method. For Froyo root, see this post
: If your EVO software version starts with 1.47.651, we have an updated post with an updated SimpleRoot version right here

Samsung Galaxy S comes with 4 absolutely stunning live wallpapers, exclusive to Samsung. User persiansown from xda forums was able to port all of them to his Nexus One, and I don't see anything technically stopping any other phone supporting live wallpapers from using them too - EVO 4G was already also confirmed working.
There is only one caveat - you have to be rooted and flash the provided .zip file from recovery.

This was unexpected - Best Buy is offering exclusive preorders on a white version of the HTC EVO 4G, scheduled to arrive in Best Buy stores on July 11th. The white version is going to have the same specs and price of $199 on a 2-year contract. As usual, a $50 deposit in the form of a Best Buy gift card is required.
I am not sure personally that I would like the white version over the black one, but I guess some people expressed desire for one.
How about you guys? Which color do you prefer?
