Along with the Slunked blog site I also run a Flash Game site, GameUsage.com. Recently I have been wanting to hack the code a little to provide a screenshot of each game. Unfortunately, all of my servers are linux based and have no monitor attached (headless). I began thinking a little bit outside of the box and came up with a trick to capture a flash game screenshot (should also capture with or without in-game ads) on a 256MB VPS server I run.

I just bought my new HTC EVO 4g after doing my research and waiting for a week for the backorders to clear up. Well I finally received my HTC EVO 4g and was going to start off with it by Wireless Tethering. Well following my original instructions, Free Wireless Tethering (HotSpot)
, yielded now results due to an OTA update that ships with the newest EVO's. Well I set out to find a new method to Root my EVO 4g and to my delight I found it! And my success would not have been remotely possible without the help from the XDA Developer Forums
and particularly the thread by jiqqaman titled SimpleRoot .1 ---- 3 Click Root w/ nand unlock!!
, which unfortunately, I found out was not the right thread for the newest OTA. For the newest OTA, this thread, SimpleRoot OTA 1.47.651.1 Edition
, is the correct one and I will upload the files to my site for the first 400 downloads, from the OTA 1.47 thread to show my support and appreciation.
