Simple to use. Useful for those who want ROOT access via ADB or Device for Backup, etc. It is a modified scripts from Doomlord and some1 in the CDMA threads...

Prerequisites
1) Uninstall all HTC Sync & Drivers
2) Download and install http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe
3) Make sure your device Display is set to NEVER TURN OFF & not locked in the lockscreen

Instructions
1. Download attachment
2. Extract to C:\
3. Execute file Step 1
4. Execute file Step 2. If doesnt work, go to C:\files and execute Step 2
5. Remount SD card again from the DEVICE SETTINGS page

This will work for all devices not limited to EVO 3D.

For locked bootloaders (any versions), this will result in a temporary ROOT access, and will be lost after reboot.

Please feedback for whichever H-Boot this works on.

Thanks to our following comrades...

Team Revolutionary with their ZergRush exploit
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1296916&page=2

DoomLord with the automated script
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1321582

For the third guy I cant remember where.. maybe the CDMA section with the permatemproot stuff..

With this script, Titanium Backup and Root Explorer will definitely work even on LOCKED bootloaders (will lose root after reboot, just rerun the script)

For problems especially with SUPERUSER FCs, please download and run the .bat file in the UNROOT.zip. This will clean the system of all old temp root stuffs like superusers, etc...

Appreciate your thanks..

i dun understand why but it didn't work as did ur last tool, it always saids adb server out-of-date, re running or sth, it does the same in every step, and when it comes to moving files/manipulating permissions, i just get loads of errors


I'm on HBOOT 1.49.0012

P.S. i cant unlock using HTC Unlock method too no matter how many times i try (i read the instructions carefully and followed them closely) but still got unlock token check failed error......

Reboot your device and try again... see edited post above..

Not sure about HTC Unlock method...

For UNLOCKED evos, it will give permanent ROOT access
For LOCKED evos, it will give temporary ROOT access

If you have problem unlocking, try grabbing a RUU file here and reflash your ROM... maybe factory reset wont hurt either...

Yup, not working here either.

It says it installs everything ok, but when I go to update the su binary, it force closes out. When I use TI backup, it says I don't have root access.

Hope this helps so that we can at least get temp root. I just want to remove the bloatware!

Thanks for the hard work in any event!

tried this on sensation xl and it worked, root access to some apps like root explorer but terminal says access denied. it seems to unmount the internal sd card which programs need to run and only a reboot remounts sdcard but obviously root is gone after reboot. hope one of the XL devs can use this to create a working solution for our XL

dont need to update the SU binary.. just run the scripts and they are good to go...

however, SYSTEM/APP are in locked partition of the bootloader.. you may need to unlock your bootloader first.. but you may remove some in the Data/app llike gmail and stuffs (i prefer Exchange email than using Gmail app)

If your bootloader is unlocked, then you may be able to reboot and still have root..
