Thanks to the chaps at unrEVOked, it is once again super easy to root your phone. Simply download the latest version of unrEVOked and run it on your computer. You can follow my android rooting guide for a step by step walk through. You can also run unrEVOked forever and never have to worry about losing root.
Once you’re rooted, follow my guide to removing Android 2.2 bloat to clean up your phone and save some space. Or, you can install a custom ROM, like Virtuous (awesome ROM by the way – very stable), and let someone else do the work of tweaking your phone for you.
This could only be easier if the phone came rooted.
