HTC Evo Root after newest OTA firmware upgrade

Following the recent OTA update sent out by HTC, many phones were getting bricked along with other problems, but enough of that. Inside the HTC update was security patches that patched the previous vulnerability in which root was originally attained. Their was a bounty in the XDA Forums for the person who acheived this and I guess they are paying up at the moment as the bounty now says:

1. Your root method must be able to root a stock EVO with v1.47.651.1. Full root and NAND rw required. – DONE
2. This method must be verified by at least 5 other forum users that are not new. – DONE
3. Once these requirements are met, I will pay you via Paypal. – PENDING

So, congratulations anonymous user, and many thanks!
