We’d already seen proof that the oh-so-lovely hacking community had managed to root (read: gain full, unrestricted administrative privileges for) the unreleased Sprint EVO 4G — but outside of a very select bunch, the process was kept on lock down.

Fear not! Now you, too, can get all up on some handset hacking debauchery. Well, you can if you have an EVO — which for the vast majority of would-be owners, won’t happen until tomorrow’s launch.

As is par for the course with all this hacking stuff, this isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s not hardcore Zero Cool type stuff, but there’s still some room for error — and errors when you’re tinkering with a multi-hundred dollar handset = bad news.
