S-Off, Root, Recovery and Honeycomb for HTC Evo View
Livven has already talked about the Honeycomb update and you can find the article right here .
If you take a stroll down XDA way and take a gander at this thread you can check out this early release of s-off instructions.
As globatron states in the thread,
This is an early version of the S-OFF procedure intended for experienced modders / developers not for general users, if you are neither of these, then it is not intended for you at this time.

Despite not being a public release, it is encouraging to see that people are on the job and finding ways around the new framework and we’re sure there will be a public release very soon. Until then, though, you’ll have to keep tabs on the thread from the link above to keep up to date with the HTC View’s Honeycomb rooted goodness!
