The enterprising folks over at XDA-Devs have managed to make the life with your HTC handset a bit easier, outing v3 of the HTC Super Tool. The software is supposed to root, S-off, and unlock the bootloader on many popular HTC devices, like the HTC Sensation 4G or the EVO 3D.

The developer FRIGID says that theoretically it should work with all HTC handsets, as their firmware structure is similar. You need a few driver and software downloads, as well as well-charged battery, of course, as in all such cases, but other than that, the instructions in the source link are pretty straighforward.


Now you can root, S-off and unlock the bootloader of almost any HTC device like HTC Sensation, Evo Design 4g, Evo 4g, Evo 3d, Evo Shift, G2, MT3Gs, MT4G, MT4Gs, Inspire, Sensation, Incredible, Wildfire S and Amaze with the help of the application called HTC SUPER TOOL V3 created by FRIGID of XDA Developers Forum. Frigid said that it should also work on any HTC devices because they all have similar architecture.

Here is where to get the downloads:

Who has tried this, and does it work?

Interesting, but I am already rooted, S-offed, and unlocked, so not really able to test. I will see if I can find a guinea pig among my friends though...
