[Q] Unable to Root HTC Evo Design 4g. Version 2.3.4
Hello there, I was hoping somebody could help me with this.
So i've been trying to get my Evo Design 4g rooted but I always seem to get in some sort of a problem in the last steps. I first tried Frigid's SuperUserV3(in this post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1343114
), but did not get the phone rooted, I even got the colored flashing screen that says "Rooted" but superuser(Downloaded from Google Play) does not find a thing, the root checker says my phone is not rooted, and Titanium Backup says it cannot get access and that I need to root my phone.
Therefore I tried a different approach to the problem, and after some hours of research I found this post:
Which says that after all of that I will be able to "root" my Evo design, it pretty much tells you to use the same steps as this other post:
(by the way I do not really know what HBoot 1.5 means or what is it's purpose)
So after following the instructions on both of the posts I've done the first steps without problem, my Design already has been unlocked and I have already pushed the Recovery.img and the su.zip into the SD, I also went into fastboot and had the recovery option in there, I selected it and the phone started to restart as in this video:
I however did not get anything after the HTC screen with the white background, it just stays there, I've waited for like aprox. 10 mins and it doesn't move or change so I'm guessing something must be wrong.
Now I don't know if all of this is not working because of my phone's version.
It is relatively new I got it a week ago as a replacement for an older one that had some problems with the charge port. Anyways, as soon as the phone was given to me I updated and everything(I did not Think/Know a lot about rooting at this point so I let it all install and it left me with this software version:
Android Version: 2.3.4
HTC Sense Version: 3.0
(I don't know if it has anything to do with rooting or this)
Software Number: 2.12.651.8 710RD
All of this as of may 31 2012
I also found this other post: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1399351
It does has some stuff on it for after the rooting and 2 links to do so but, they seem to be outdated/dead as the link that takes you to supertool still reads v2, and he has already released v3. The second one seems to take you to a page that doesn't exist anymore so the post just doesn't seem to be able to help me.
I also tried some of the other posts that this page recommended when posting this but none of them seem to have a real answer and take me in some kind of a loophole of the early mentioned options or have no answers about the rooting.
As an ultimate resource I've been pondering about using rEVOked with the settings of the Evo 4g since it seems to be very similar to my phone, or at least something similar to those words. Also tried UnlockRoot at some point in between but didn't work at all either. Don't think it is relevant though since there is not a lot I can do or work with when it comes to a one-click program.
Any Help would be greatly appreciated and I will try my best to continue researching and maybe post any changes or an official way to root this device since it seems as there is none around at least not to this point.
I am new to here and the whole rooting topic but i will try my best to be useful to the community and keep posting useful stuff around here.
Thanks!. Btw your noob video is hilarious.
