I had gone through lots of posts and searches to Root HTC Sensation XE but wasn't able to find anything that would work with XE as well as here on XDA almost everything is for HTC Sensation but XE. So thought i'd just share this information as i happen to get my hands after very very desperate moments. My work is editing and formatting the whole post but nothing else. all credits go to the original writer/creator of this guide.
