Back when I had my Evo 3D there was root and s-off. With the newest firmware I don't know for certain. I have a friend who has the HTC dev unlock which will give you root access so you can flash roms and such.

Everything that I've found requires a "wire trick" & doing that just makes me a wee bit uneasy.. lol

It's not as bad as it sounds. The rezound has the same "wire trick" and its actually pretty easy to do. All the trick does is force the emmc to load up in download mode so that raw data can be written to it. Kinda defeats the purpose of having any type of protection on the phone at all lol. You can always do the htcdev.com bootloader unlock and root it that way, but flashing custom roms and such is a little bit more time consuming. If you need help with it I can write up some instructions for you.
