It appears that rooting Android devices before their release has become a rule rather than the exception. We have already seen a pre-release root for HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S3. This time it’s the HTC EVO 4G LTE that has been rooted less than 24 hours after the shipment for the pre-ordered devices was to take place.
The complete guide for rooting and unrooting the EVO 4G LTE is available on the XDA Developer’s Forum thread (link given at the end of this post), thanks to “zedomax”. If you think the text version of the guide is a bit difficult for you, then you can check out the videos given below. The below videos show the rooting process using Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
This one click rooting guide offers Linux and Mac users the utility to simply unzip a file and run a script. This means there is no need for installing any kind of drivers. According to zedomax, this process cannot brick your device and is safe, however we recommend that you read our disclaimer before proceeding this guide.
Please follow this rooting guide at your own risk. Rooting your device will void your warranty.
