Angry How to Root/Unroot HTC Evo 4G LTE! [Windows/Mac/Linux][One-Click][<=1.22.651.1]




Video tutorial for Windows:


Video tutorial for Linux/Ubuntu:


Video tutorial for Mac OSX:


UPDATE: This root method will ONLY work on software version 1.22.651.1 and older, if you have 1.22.651.3, please be patient devs are working on it!!!

Here's how to root HTC Evo 4G LTE:

This will give you full root with SuperSU app and busybox.

Completely safe to do, it can't brick your phone in any way but your dog or cat might BURN UP!

For Windows, update drivers using driver files below then double-click on runme.bat.

For Linux, no drivers needed, unzip Evo4GLTERoot.zip to your Downloads directory then open up a terminal and do:

Code:
cd Downloads/Evo4GLTERoot
chmod 755 *
sudo ./adb-linux devices
Then do:

Code:
sh runmelinux.sh
For Mac, no drivers needed, unzip Evo4GLTERoot.zip to your Downloads directory then open up a terminal and do:

Code:
cd Downloads/Evo4GLTERoot
chmod 755 *
sh runmemac.sh

Drivers for 64-bit Windows:

Download Rooting Files:
http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/H...o4GLTERoot.zip

Mirror: http://stockroms.net/file/HTCEvo4GLTE/Evo4GLTERoot.zip



This is the EXACT SAME method used for Transformer Prime ICS root.

If you need to unroot, here's RUU: (use the version that's same as your software version)

FAQ:
Q: Does this give bootloader TAMPERED?
A: Yes but you can install RUU and will be gone.

I am sure you probably rooted it but the best way to show that it is rooted is probably to show titanium backup instead of showing an app that anybody can get off the market with or without root.

Edit: I guess showing the script can suffice. Cool beans

Does bootloader show tampered? I know on the one x's it did, but would go away with ruu.

Good job and Congrats!!

I knew it wouldn't be long for root

UPS shows mine as delivered...I know what I am doing tonight! I too would like to know if the bootloader stays legit.

Cheers
