Also explain why most people use CM6 or 7 on their phone.
Pretty much the method I used. Except I do not like Clockwork. So I booted to the bootloader and flashed pc316 or whatever, AmRa is better on the Evo.
You need to load up a root app, and see if it asks for permission from superuser. If it does not ask you either have not flashed the superuser or did something wrong.
I don't use CM7, I use Deck's. It is based on the same source but Deck's is lighter. It does not include some of the CM "extras". I cannot answer your question as to "why" unless you expand on it. I would never run the stock Sense shit again.
Ask away, I am always trying stuff with my Evo.
