    i have the og evo and it's rooted. periodically i would need to pull the battery to stop it from boot-loops and other problems like that...

    i'm considering upgrading to the 4g lte or the siii, my concern is that since the new 4g lte doesn't have a removable battery, wouldn't that cause a potential problem for rooters? how do you get out of a boot-loop?

    Holding down the power button for ~10 seconds does the trick.

    I was really paranoid about the built in battery but so far (knock on wood), I have had no problems, and I love the slimmer cleaner build of the phone.

    The built in battery is the one thing that made me hesitate before buying this phone. After having the LTEvo I'm glad I bought it. The power button mash works just as well as removing the battery on my OG Evo. And the battery life is fantastic too. I know that last part is kinda irrelevant, but I used to use an external charger so the native battery made me nervous.

    I still am paranoid, just can't shake it and can't do anything about it now. I sent a half drunken email to HTC to complain about it. The wording was actually very nice.

    I can mess up a sunrise.

    I've had ample occasion to use the 10 second power mash to get my phone back - it works for me. :)

    Me too. Plus, now I don't need to remove the case to hard reset the phone. :)

    I only had to do it once when I had a bad flash and an image zip on the sdcard which rendered me dead in the water until I just pulled the card and deleted the zip. It worked fine.

    I've gone for weeks at a a time without even rebooting this phone. HTC really hit the nail on the head this time.

    I have to say I made the right choice. I think this is the best phone out there right now, and I dont see the iphone beating it.

    Coming from two previous Samsung Android phones and having to pull the battery many times a week i was a little nervous but i really haven't the need to do that with the EVO LTE. I have done it when i was first unlocking/rooting my phone but haven't had the need otherwise.
