Everything below is grayed out as it is now of historical interest.

Simpleroot method for this version is out, this app makes rooting this ROM version much easier.

This method developed by an anonymous user. It is for rooting the new OTA v1.47.651.1. If your stuck with the new ota or just bought an EVO with this version, this is for you.

UPDATE 7/6:Hackfiles updated. See end of this post.

VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE, Courtesy of jiqqaman

Make sure you have adb ready to go and know how to get into adb shell. You must use the EVO browser to perform these steps. If these steps don't work, use recovery to wipe your phone and start fresh (you will lose all of your data on the phone)

1. Unzip the files into a directory somewhere on your computer
2. Put the files into the root of your sdcard (mount the EVO as a disk drive)
3. Unmount your phone
4. Run "adb shell" and start part1 on your phone:


sh /sdcard/part1
5. If the script says to power down, hold your power button and turn off your phone, then turn it back on.
6. When it starts up it will ask you to open the EVO browser. open your EVO browser to
7. When it asks you to, refresh the EVO browser on the same page
8. Reboot your phone with "adb reboot"
9. Run adb shell as soon as you can (when the HTC logo is still showing). You need to be fast. If you get "error: device not found", try again.


adb shell /data/local/part2
10. It should print after part2 finished:


crw-rw-rw- root     root      90,   2 2010-07-05 19:37 mtd1
11. When your phone finished booting, flash toastcfh's mtd-eng.img to misc:


cat /sdcard/flash_image > /data/local/flash_image
chmod 755 /data/local/flash_image
/data/local/flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd-eng.img
12. Now flash the Engineering SPL with toastcfh's post:

13. If your are having troubles, you may find useful information HERE

FINAL STEP - Do NOT accept any OTA updates from this point on. REALLY. DON'T **** UP YOUR ROOT!

SteelH you might wanna update your thread title to reflect correct version number 1.47.651.1 (says 1.46.651.1 at the moment)

Seriously?!? Dang that is amazing. I am a newb so will wait for others to work it out...and for someone to set up a three click...LOL. (I was a bit worried about the contest money. I'll donate to whomever gets a set up a newb can follow.)

Till then I'll let the more adventurous tell us how it goes.

Great work if this is for real!
