    1. Install HTC Sync on your PC

    It is already in your sd card which you got with the phone but if you lost it you can download it from: HTC Explorer Product Support

    2. Unlock your phone's bootloader

    Go to HTCdev - Unlock Bootloader
    select all then select "all other supported devices" when asked to select devices
    then follow the steps indicated

    3. Add a recovery

    With recovery you can make a nandroid backup of you current ROM and you can flash .zip files . All custom ROMs are in the format .zip and you need a custom recovery to flash them easily.

    - Download A310E Recovery.zip from
    - extract it on your desktop
    - run the recovery.bat with phone in fastboot mode (first option in the "3 android menu" ) and connected with usb.

    Done! You got the recovery installed if no errors, you can now install any compatible .zip ROM or app.

    4. ROOT the device

    Download superuser zip from http://downloads.androidsu.com/superuser/Superuser-3.0.7-efghi-signed.zip
    Place the superuser.zip in the sd card
    Boot in recovery by pressing "power+volume" down while phone is off
    Install superuser.zip

    Note: after rooting don't restore to factory setting from storage menu in setting

    So it's just recovery mode-->restore and backup-->backup. Nandroid backup done?
    If the phone gets bricked I just hit restore and it will all go back to how it was before the backup?

    Yes. It's a good idea to copy the backup on your sd card to your computer for safekeeping.
    If the phone gets bricked, do a factory reset, wipe cache/dalvik cache and then restore.
