Default [Q] How can I root my HTC EVO 3D with Software number 1.20.401.8 and HBOOT 1.40018?

How can I root my HTC EVO 3D with Software number 1.20.401.8 and HBOOT 1.49.0018?

The HTC rooting method does not work since the HBOOT version has to be 1.5 or higher. Also, in order to use the Revolutionary method I'd have to downgrade my HBOOT, which isn't possible right now because the download link from the tutorial I found on XDA is dead.

Is there any other way to root my phone or downgrade the HBOOT? My 3D is an european GSM model.

Hello,

I also own an EVO with 0018 hboot, i folowed htcdev.com to unlock it with succes.
After that i flashed a new recovery and then flashed the Root and SuperUser package found here...

I folowed this thread : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1248231
with CWM recovery and changed it to 4ext.

I am still S ON so i can't flash kernels within my phone but it works via fastboot.

i cannot help you more for HTC DEV it worked fine for me without any problem.
the message you got looks like you try to flash a unsigned zip witch can't be possible if you are with a stock phone and try to unlock by the "offcial method..."

here's the ling for revolutionnary method, maybe it can help :

I know about the Revolutionary method, but in order to use it I have to downgrade my hboot version, which cannot be done at this moment since the link to the files necessary for downgrading is dead.

You only need RUU or zip, nothing else. I can upload them, if you want.

I would be thankful if you would reupload PG86IMG.zip, the multiupload file has apparently been deleted.

The first thing you need to do is head over to HTC dev and sign up and also this is where you will unlock you bootloader you must do this first before anything else

I signed up at htcdev.com and tried to unlock the bootloader using the HTC Method, it didn't work. I already mentioned that a few posts above.

Make sure that when you paste the unlock code on the website, there aren't any spaces left. I made the same mistake, whereafter I got the same error message. If you follow the steps exactly, nothing can go wrong. I'm rooted, unlocked and s-on on the same hboot as you.
