Hey guys
- not experimental anymore as roots all latest ICS builds and previous unrootable GB roms!
This is classed as experimental as I cannot try it but those with above mentioned softwares can. As we know most of the ASIAN firmwares 1.14, 1.24, 1.28 and Thailand and some o2 DE and Vodafone Dutch firmware versions have not been rootable by Doomlords exploit. This can prove quite disappointing by some who want to flash custom roms etc or just want root on their stock rom. This supersu zip works with most recent firmware releases and on One X so there is a strong likelyhood it will work on SXL as well.
Original Thread here here and all credits to CHAINFIRE(amazing dev) for this. I have attached the latest supersu zip 0.88 to this post.
Procedure:
1. If not already done so unlock bootloader at HTCDEV website. full instructions given on how to do this on the website here
2. flash recovery from here
3. boot into recovery via bootloader and flash supersu zip attached to this post (download and place in root of internal sd before flashing recovery) and reboot. supersu app should be installed on device. run the app and update the binaries as prompted and that should be it. if any issues go to preferences and change su setting to grant from prompt and it should be ok.

please advise if successful so i can update or remove thread. please post what software version you attempted to root and region PLEASE
Extended flash procedure broken down

1. unlock bootloader at HTCDEV.COM
2. with phone connected to pc and usb debugging enabled type: adb reboot bootloader. phone will boot into fastboot mode showing fastboot USB in red border
3. type command: fastboot erase cache

5. using press power button to select hboot highlighted in blue
6. vol down to recovery in green and power to select. recovery should launch
7. install zip from sdcard and choose supersu 0.87 or 0.88 and install
8. reboot and enjoy full root

Appreciate any help but why try and confuse things if posted solution works. Recovery method is offered because most will prob flash a custom rom so will have recovery already.

my adb not recognizing my phone

Be more specific please. There could be many reason for this. If use recovery no need for cables and adb. I could write a few solutions to this but need to you to be more specific

Software V: 2.31.401.2

I´need it to install the app WIFIX. Because after the update, WIFI doesn´t work anymore..(The same situation happens with Sensation/Pyramid) The problem happens just when you put the SIM Card of this funny Country.

Thanks.

It does work on that build because I've done it myself and so have many others in this forum.... You've obviously gone wrong somewhere ;)

    sensation xl (hboot 1.28.0006)
    What recovery have you installed? Is it the Paul O'Brien one if so thats why it doesn't work... Use this one instead

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1041596&d=1336184770

    Flash it in the same way as other recovery ;)

    Hi,
    I have another another problem after flashing the Recovery. I can launch the Recovery but I cant access /sdcard/ , I got this message:

    ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1
    E : can't mount /sdcard/

    Any one can help Please...
    Thanks in advance
    Are you using the touch recovery?... if so that is your problem

    Download this http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=1216504&d=1343047739
    and flash over the other recovery and you then should be able to access SDcard whilst in recovery
