HTC EVO 3D to receive permanent root access later today?

Unrevoked-alpharev-announcement

Well, well … what do we have here? It looks like a new website has popped up, announcing that developers unrevoked and AlphaRev have something "truly revolutionary" that they will announce later today. We know that they have been working together for a little while to produce a simple, one-click permanent root solution for the HTC EVO 3D and its cousin, the HTC Sensation 4G for T-Mobile. Could this mean that their root-tool is about to go public, finally bringing permanent root and S-OFF capabilities to the masses?

It's all pure speculation at this point, but we do know that developers have been on the verge of rooting the EVO 3D for weeks now. Still, before we allow ourselves to get too excited, we should also keep in mind that this page is only saying that they are announcing something, not releasing anything. So perhaps they will just formally announce the merging of the two teams, or let us know exactly what they are currently working on in the pipeline.

Another possibility could be the announcement of a root exploit for original HTC EVO 4G handsets that have accepted the latest OTA Gingerbread updates.

All of this comes right as HTC just released the kernel source code for the EVO 3D and the Gingerbread update on the original EVO 4G earlier today. This means that, if unrevoked and AlphaRev really are releasing their new root tool today, the developer floodgates are about to open wide, and the coming weeks and months are about to get very exciting.
