Default ROOTING For Dummies

Rooting HTC EVO 4G For Dummies





ROM Compatible Versions:
3.70.XX.XXX.X

HBoot Compatible Versions:
2.10

UPDATE
Update #1
For those of you who have Gingerbread 2.3.3 on your phone stop now. this guide is for those who have Froyo 2.2 on their phone still. please read this
Guide to Rooting Gingerbread with Revolutionary
if you want to root your Gingerbread phone.

Update#2
ok there has been another update that has changed the bootloader again. the latest 4.67 software update which is gingerbread 2.3.5 has now locked the bootloader. this guide will not work. however, there are several methods that can be used to downgrade the bootloader so that you can either use unrevoked (info found in this guide) or use revolutionary(ROOTING For Dummies Guide.....the Gingerbread Edition). you can get more info about the various methods found here:[Revised] Rooting Gingerbread 2.3.5 Dummies Guide

Update#3
ok hopefully this is the last ota our beloved evo will ever get. but there is a new software version that comes with the latest ota. the new software version is now 5.07.651.1. fortunately the revised gingerbread 2.3.5 guide will still work. htc did not add or close any exploits found previously so the guide will still work.



Those of you who ROOTed with unrevoked 3.3 may be having trouble FLASHing custom ROMs to your device. This is why ([NOTICE] ClockworkMod Recovery 3.0+ and update-script - xda-developers).

So sum it up, Google REMOVED Amend support in Donut and beyond (which is a type of coding language). Most Developer ROMs are designed around Amend. ClockworkMod and Amon_RA still have support for the ROMs still using Amend. But soon will be phased out by Edify (a new Binary).

To releave this, FLASH ClockworkMOD 2.6.0.1 or Amon_RA's Latest Version, then reFLASH your desired ROM.


THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW. BEFORE ROOTING
  • Quick INTRO TO ROOTING for those new to rooting
  • Rooting VOIDS your warranty. (HTC: 1 Year Manufacturer Warranty SPRINT: Insurance Coverage)
  • This ROOT Method can be used without requiring you to install a custom ROM.
  • ALL of your personal information, APPs and Setting will NOT be effected by this ROOT Method.
  • Phone activation/internet is not required for Rooting.
  • There is a very SLIM chance you could lose 4G permanently.
  • Factory Reseting your device will not UN-ROOT you phone.
  • There is no need to downgrade to 2.1 to gain 2.2 back. This method will ROOT your 2.2 without causing any conflicts. (It will also ROOT your 2.1 if you have not already upgraded, or do not want to upgrade)
HOW TO USE THIS GUIDE: TUTORIAL
Press the "Show" button below.





ROOTING & BACKUP
SECTION 1: PRE-ROOTING - Estimated Time 5 -30 Minutes
PRE-ROOTING





SECTION 2: ROOTING PROCEDURE - Estimated Time 5 - 8 Minutes
ROOTING PROCEDURE




ERROR "Backup CID is Missing"
If you get this Error, scroll down to the bottom of this section for Troubleshooting. If not, keep reading.

BEFORE WE START CUSTOMIZING - LETS MAKE SURE WE ARE FULLY ROOTED





ERROR "Backup CID is Missing"

Solution by akazabam







Enough Reading!! I WANT ROOT!!

If running unrevoked a second time didn't grant you Root Permissions, then follow the steps below.




SECTION 3: NAND BACKUP (3 Options) Estimated Time 5 - 10 Minutes



NOTE: Remember to have your Device unplugged from any USB connection while doing a Nand Backup.


OPTION 1 - DEVICE RECOVERY (Manual)
DEVICE RECOVERY




OPTION 2 - Amon_RA (FLASHABLE)
AMON_RA






SECTION 4: unrevoked Forever (from S-ON to S-OFF)
UNREVOKED FOREVER (from S-ON to S-OFF)




NEED A PARTICULAR RECOVERY VERSION?

Clockwork & Amon_RA PC36IMG Files

SECTION 5: WiMax RSA Keys (4G Signal)





After Rooting
SECTION 1: FLASHING ROMS LIST OF ROMS By XDA-Developers




UPDATE PROFILE AND PRL AFTER FLASHING ROMS




TROUBLESHOOTING








SECTION 3: UN-ROOTING - Recommended only if you want to Return to Stock (NOT for an OTA)




SECTION 4: UPDATING TO THE LATEST OTA (Over-The-Air Update)*





OTAs THAT INCLUDE THE RADIO UPDATE







FLASHING RADIOS





---------------NOTES----------------




SECTION 5: Android Lingo
ANDROID LINGO




I'll add more to the list as I go. If you know of any, let me know and I'll add it.

As soon as I can I will post the QR for all the rooted apps. Also, appbrain does not have Adfree listed for obvious reasons. Check the Android market for "adfree Android".

So if I root following this guide, but keep the stock ROM for now since I'm nowhere near advanced enough to venture into that, will I keep all my apps and data? Do I need to use some app to back up everything before doing this?

If you root with Unrevoked 3.21, and stop after rooting (don't load new ROM0, your data is kept safe and nothing is wiped.

This guide is good but unclear about a couple of steps:

1. you can download the Unrevoked HBOOT drivers, and after you set the phone to "charge only - always remember this" + "USB Debugging mode", you can follow the guide here to install the drivers: public:windows_hboot_driver_install [RootWiki]

Note: after you install and unplug the phone, let the phone boot into normal state.

Then plug the phone back into the computer, you may have to go through and reinstall the HBOOT drivers again (I did), but don't unplug the second time.

2. There is no install of the reflash.exe - you just run it. Make sure "charge only + always remember" is set, or Unrevoked will not succeed. I tried it the first time by setting it to "Charge only" and "always ask me" and it didn't go all the way through. Once I removed "always ask me" it worked just fine.

Once Unrevoked says "done" then you can remove the phone from the USB cable / PC, and it's all set. To confirm it worked, go to HBOOT screen: turn off phone, then press VOL DOWN + POWER, and when it gets to the HBOOT screen, it should show "S-OFF".

You can stop here, and your phone is unrooted, you can install wifi tethering, etc. Or you can proceed and install new custom Roms / recoveries if you like.

Nice job wish I had this awhile ago. Anyway you can only freeze apps in the donate version of titanium backup . The free on won't let you . Atleast the most current one in the market

Thank you so much guys, really. I just followed all the steps and I am now rooted Everything worked flawlessly...I really have to give it to the unrevoked team for making such a kickass simple way to root your phone. I didn't think it would be this easy.

Now I'm going to start reading up on ROMs and kernels even though I don't even really know what a kernel is. I would like to know how to install customs roms and themes. But do any of them have working 4G? I live near Cary/Raleigh which has 4G and even though I don't use it all the time (I live in Fuquay which doesn't get 4G, but I work in Cary and spend most of my time out there) it is very important to me that it works. I never use HDMI out, although I may sometime in the future.

I'll go ahead and download those programs you listed. Does the Titanium backup just hide the bloatware programs or does it completely get rid of them?

Yes. You can install custom ROMs with any root method. There are multiple places with instructions on installing custom ROMs but my suggestion would be to do a little reading before you plunge in.

Try the Android Development forum over on xda: EVO 4G Android Development - xda-developers

Any thread title that begins with [ROM] will have a custom ROM with descriptions, screenshots, instructions, etc. For your first time out you can stick with well tested ROMs like Fresh, BakedSnacks or DamageControl.

Can you edit your post so that it doesn't quote the entire first huge post?

And this is for all versions of Android, 2.1, 2.2, etc. No downgrade needed.

Well. I may be a dummy for rooting, but I want to make sure I dont brick my phone. I love it too much to ruin it. I never did anything to my phone before.

I rooted last night using these steps along with one other thread, making sure everything meshed. It all came out nicely and can't wait to see what a rooted Evo is capable of compared to my older rooted G1. Thanks!

I'm a complete newbie to this rooting ; I followed these steps you provided to root my HTC EVO, it showed that it's rooted as you stated about the SD-OFF. It also show the icon Superuser Permission. I tried tethering with my phone, it comes on, but my computer connects but only shows a local connection. Why don't I have internet access. What am I missing. Thanks in advance for any advice/help.

Are you using Wireless Tether?
If so, make sure you allow Superuser to let Wireless Tether use rooting capabilities. I was able to connect the first time using it. I'll look into it and see if there is any reason why it shound't have worked.

I was having the same issue and after a bit of searching I found the below thread. After installing the 2_0_5-pre9 version (link in thread) it is now working for me.

I am now dealing with another issue where I lose the connection after a few minutes and having to stop and restart tether before it starts working again.

Help! Wifi Tether shows limited connectivity

Default Unroot

SECTION 8: UN-ROOTING



[/QUOTE]







I rooted my phone with unrevoked 3...First, i would like to know if i have to unroot my phone in order to install the latest updates from Sprint? Second, if yes, I just tried to do what you said but I was a bit confused, since i'm using unrevoked three do I only do steps 9-12 or however many there are? I also had trouble with the zip file. Am i suppose to be putting it on the sd root while i'm connected to the computer or while i'm in the recovery because I can't find it while i'm trying to upload it from the recovery. please help, thanks.

As long as you did not use unrEVOked FOREVER, you only need to use steps 9 - 10.

You will more than likely have to Un-Root in order to install the latest updates from Sprint. If there is an update available, and you are not able to receive it after a few months of it being OFFICIAL released, then you will almost definitely have to Un-Root your device.

From how I read how to do it, your device will be in Recovery Mode when you put the PC36IMG.zip into the Root of your SDCard. If this does not work, try it before putting your device into Recovery Mode and see if it works. Please let me know which works for you and I'll make changes as needed.

Default rooting issue

I followed the instructions and the drivers are installed correctly (appears correctly in device manager per the instructions) but when I run the root program it just hangs and asks me to connect my phone. I have USB debugging on and it should work but just keeps hanging there.....anyone have any ideas?

Thanks ChrisGTE, but I tried that method also, I actually tried Pac 9, 8, 7, and 4, still same results. I'm currently running version 9. Maybe something will give eventually. I'm sure someone out there will provide the solution to this issue.

Sorry to hear you are still having problems with WiFi Tether, keep fighting with it, once you get it working it's great.

I don't think this will resolve your issue but thought I would pass along the links that resolved my WiFi Tether disconnecting issue. Long story short, for some reason the default channel (#06) doesn't work well and switching to channel #01 helps keep a better connection. After changing to channel #01 I was able to stay connected for ~4 hours last night and ~2 hours today.

You might want to add this to the unrooting portion. Just an FYI for anybody who used Unrevoked3... In order to fully unroot you MUST apply the S-ON tool as Unrevoked Forever is included in Unrevoked3. Very nice write up!

Section 8 states to apply the s-on zip only if you used unrevoked forever. I know a lot of people are aware that unrevoked forever is included with UR3 but I know some don't. I just wanted to let people know if they were confused. Do you know if anyone has had success unrooting if they initially root after accepting the latest ota update? The reason I ask is because I know there have been some problems unrooting with the ota and getting "main version is older" error.

EDIT: The main version is older error was occurring when trying to apply the pc36img.zip. Forgot to add that.. lol

Hmmm good call. I'll have to look into that. I'll try and unroot later when I get the chanxe and see If I get the same problem. Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

You will more than likely have to Un-Root in order to install the latest updates from Sprint. If there is an update available, and you are not able to receive it after a few months of it being OFFICIAL released, then you will almost definitely have to Un-Root your device.

From how I read how to do it, your device will be in Recovery Mode when you put the PC36IMG.zip into the Root of your SDCard. If this does not work, try it before putting your device into Recovery Mode and see if it works. Please let me know which works for you and I'll make changes as needed.
I tried both ways and i can't get access to the PC36IMG.zip. You only want me to do steps 9 and 10?

The rooting method has nothing to do with 4g. It depends on which rom you flash. I believe 4g works on all sense based roms.

If you do not use Unrevoked 3 OR Unrevoked Forever then you start from step 9. As far as you cant access the pc36img.zip, did you make sure you put the file directly on the root of the SD card? When you first boot into hboot, it will automatically scan for the pc36img file, but it has to be on the root of the SD card.

Default WiFi tether

For those having difficulty using wifi tether after rooting, I had a similar problem. I loaded the Pre-9 version of the software and got my Win7 laptop connected just fine; and also a Vista laptop. But, I could not get a 2nd Vista laptop to work. It would connect, but no internet.

Then, light bulb, I noticed that my wife had accidentally or intentionally turned on the windows firewall. This had not been a problem in the past using an ad hoc network on WM phones, but now it won't work.

After turning off the Windows firewall, everything is great; good speed, multiple connected computers. I don't know how many connections are possible, but I've had up to three.

Hope this helps.

Another dumb question.. If you flash a custom rom/kernal can you still unroot your phone back to stock everythng by using the unroot method?
