Default 28/3/2012[UPDATED][ROOT]Sensation XL permanent root method - V4 ADDED.

*** unlocking bootloader from HTCDEV site is highly recommended for a permanent root solution***
1. enable usb debugging from settings - applications - development
2. plug phone to pc via usb cable - charge only
3. open extracted zip folder and click runme. thats all. (if experience any daemon hanging problems pls install htc sync and plug in phone so drivers are installed. once done delete htc sync and repeat root procedure)
PC will open a cmd screen with prompts that you need to follow. app does rest
4. After root is complete pls visit market and update SU app. once done root will be fully functional and eliminate any future FCs
5. Also as an extra tip you can install SU UPDATE fixer from market to update your binaries to 3.0

ALL DONE
***************** this isnt my work and i take no credit for it. i tried it and the results were good so i am sharing it. period*****************

****please see anzhi thread for clockwork mod and chinese boot.img and rom needed prior to flashing cappy's rcmix3d rom. files needed are posted by me in his rom thread!****

Update:
Software version 1.24.709.2 doesn't seem to be rootable via this method. Please try flashing another ruu from runnymede rom thread then attempt root again

Added V4 of the Doomlord Exploit as may be why XL was rooted without bootloader being unlocked.

well i relocked my bootloader and flashed ruu 1.05.404 then I used Doolord V4 to root my phone. This was succesful in permanently rooting my phone without unlocking my bootloader. This was not possible with V2 so if anyone wants to root without unlocking bootloader this is now possible using V4 of the Doomlord Exploit attached below. PLEASE NOTE THAT STILL NEED TO UNLOCK BOOTLOADER TO FLASH CUSTOM ROMS AND RECOVERY

After owning so many at once I have decided to try something new by using one....It may not last but for now thats it

Here is proof. Root explorer superuser permissions in SU app on my phone
Sent from my HTC Nexus One using xda premium

i uploaded pic via xda premium app so not sure why not showing
terminal app wont give full access nor does rom manager. temp root seems to unmount sd card which is remount after reboot but then root access is gone. some apps work perfectly with root permissions and others don't. guess thats why it a temp solution so at least some of our apps that need root acess will work. i am sure someone who is a bit smarter that i am will know how to adapt this to a fully working solution even if temporary

hey cappy the sulution seems to offer some level of control but apps like terminal says access denied but via adb access is granted. someone like you must be able to figure out how these evo3d root files can be amended to work fully on XL. i am also trying the sim unlock method on sensation forum but as root is not as deep as need the mmcblk0p6 files are not being accessed. permission denied

I just went through the steps and followed each one, they emailed me an unlock_code.bin and i entered fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin and the screen appeared asking if i wanted to unlock the bootloader. Can you point me in the right direction for the recovery please.

already done that as my post in android dev forum. same thing. the root isnt a fully working option. try run terminal and type su and you get permission denied. aslo that method unmounts your internal sdcard and other apps like rom manager cant see it. have you tried the alpharev recovery image|? try the evo 3d recovery as the devices are quite similar
