You may remember that about two weeks ago we explained how to get basic root access on your shiny new Evo 4G. Despite the brilliant work by developers on getting this accomplished so quickly, some features, such as the ability to alter the system and recovery partitions through Android itself and to use a custom recovery rather than the stock one, were as of then not available.

This week, XDA member toastcfh once again wowed the community by completing his guide to the rooting and NAND protection removal process. By following his tutorial, owners of the EVO can gain full access to their device, including the aforementioned abilities. Once the process is complete, you can mod the recovery and system partitions to your heart’s content – meaning, you can finally get rid of some of that Sprint bloatware that has been taking up space on your phone.

You can find out how to gain full control of your device in the tutorial thread.
