HOW TO ROOT WITH HBOOT 2.18.0001 s-on 2.3.5...+ s-off revolutionary

OP THC Butterz

31st January 2012, 09:33 AM   |  #1  
You CAN Root the new Hboot, and you don't need s-off. (strictly for those who don't know and need help)

thanks to the cwm team for there beautiful recovery, and chainsDD for SU

1. head over to htc dev
http://www.htcdev.com/bootloader/

2. create a account or sign in (you must use your real email address)

3. go to unlock bootloader

4.Select "all other supported Models"

5.Follow the directions and install all the software provided and you will end up with a unlocked bootloader with s-on

6. enter FASTBOOT again on your phone

7.open the command prompt again on your pc

8.Download this recovery from the CWM TEAM and place it in the same folder as fastboot (where you put unlock_code.bin)
http://download.clockworkmod.com/rec...supersonic.img

9. for simplicity's sake rename the above file to recovery.img

10.in your command prompt navigate to the folder containing your fastboot files and recovery.img

11.enter the following in the command prompt:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

12. Once that completes navigate to recovery on your phone and pres power to select it

13.once CWM recovery boots on your phone use the volume up and down to pick Mounts and storage press power to select it

14.select Mount usb storage

15.take this zip and drag it to the root of your SD card
http://goo-inside.me/superuser/su-bi...ghi-signed.zip

16. on your phone press power to un mount your usb storage

17. select go back

18.select install zip from sd card

19.choose zip from sd card

20.select the su-bin-3.0.3.2-efghi-signed.zip file we just downloaded and press power to flash

21. reboot the phone

22.once your phone is booted go to the market and search superuser

23.download and install superuser

24. search busy

25. use one of the busybox installers and install busybox (hit allow on the su notification)

26.enter superuser, press the menu buton on your phone, select preferences, then scroll down to su-binary

27.hit update, and allow the prompt, if all the output is in green then you have full root congrats!!!


For Those who wish to take it one step further and achieve s-off revolutionary or unrevoked
I give credit to Captain_Throwback over at themikmik.com for this...
this process will format your phone I recommend running a program like titanium backup and syncing your contacts to google before you go any further

28.reboot your phone, and enable usb debugging

29. place these 2 files, unziped on the root of your sd card
http://themikmik.com/attachment.php?...1&d=1327588554
http://themikmik.com/attachment.php?...1&d=1327588554

30.set your phone to charge only

31.open the command prompt on your pc and navigate to the same folder as your fastboot files in the step above
for example: cd c:\android-sdk\platform-tools\

32. type the following into the command prompt pressing the enter key at the end of each line:
Code:
adb shell
you should get a dollar sign
Code:
su
you should now get a pound sign
Code:
cat /sdcard/flash_image > /data/flash_image
Code:
chmod 755 /data/flash_image
Code:
/data/flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd-eng.img
33.now set your phone to disk drive mode and place this zip on the root of your sd card (do not unzip)
http://www.4shared.com/zip/Cf3g-3lV/...Sprint_WW.html

34.rename the above file to PC36IMG

35. set your phone to charge only

36.at this step you have 2 options you can pull the battery of your phone and put it back in then hold volume down and pres power to enter the bootloader or you can go back to your command prompt and type the following:
Code:
exit
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
37.when your bootloader is done loading press volume up to flash the PC36IMG.zip

38 your phone will reboot the bootloader once durring this process, dont be alarmed just wait for it to finish, when done it will ask you to press power to restart the phone

39 when done remove the PC36IMG file from your sd card

40. congratulations you are now back to stock 2.2 froyo evo 4g

41. you may now root and get s-off using the Unrevoked method found here:
http://unrevoked.com/

42. If you would rather use the revolutionary method run this ruu on your pc:
http://goo-inside.me/supersonic/ruu/...233_signed.zip

43.now you can use the revolutionary method
revolutionary.io

Note original post for s-off found here:

note if you get stuck with a locked oww Hboot and it wont flash the PC36IMG you may use taco root to gain temp root then use steps 29-39 to unlock your bootloader to flash the PC36IMG

This is great, man.
There is a way to get S-Off with this frightful HBOOT, however

I suggest you check here on the MikMik. The great part is that you is that you achieve S-Off with Unrevoked, so you have a permanent S-Off compared to Revolutionary's!

Nice guide, but you should really encourage flashing of RA recovery instead of CWM. It's just way more reliable on the EVO 4G.

+100
Most the issues I've seen on this forum over the last year were solved by switching to AmonRa recovery. Let's get people started with a leg up.

Good guide.

Its it still possible to brick with this root. Can't you only permanently brick when flashing radios? Can you do that if you have s-on?
