Just picked up a very nice old EVO Shift and would like to root it.
Certain problems have arisen immediately and I hope someone can direct me in how to solve them, please.
To start with - right this minute all I have is an old XP PC, so the tools for newer OSes will not work for me right now.
I have searched here and in general extensively and found many possible answers - but cannot get anything to succeed yet.
The HTC Dev site allowed me to join, but instead of getting to the bootloader unlocking area it just demands that I log in over and over - so I cannot do it that way.
(I tried maybe 5 different browsers, clearing cookies, cache & all that - same results.)
Kingo has a specific tool for this - but apparently it just uses the HTC Dev site in the background and it fails as well.
The htcsupertoolv3 opens - but it also depends upon that site and also fails.
Many sites recommend downgrading the phone from 2.3.4 to 2.2 - but their files were uploaded aeons ago and I have not been able to find a complete solution anyplace.
The phone connects fine to my PC, I have the drivers & ADB & I've been working at this most of the day today without success.
Right now seems like a good time to give myself and the phone a rest and to resume tomorrow when I get some time...
Any help will be hugely appreciated.
