Launch Recovery without a PC on your EVO4G
XDA forum members Koush and paulobrien have been busy again, and have put together a technique to get recovery running on the EVO without using a PC!

Fake-Flash using a similar concept to the original root method, it launches a recovery image from the test image recovery, but instead of pushing the files from a PC, the files are extracted from the update.zip on the SD card.
An easy way of downloading and installing the recovery is using ROM Manager, which is a free app by Koush, available on the Market. This will also install the recovery update.zip to /sdcard/update.zip.
