    Hey Everyone,

    I have had my EVO LTE for about 6 months now and from the beginning I noticed that my Bluetooth stereo audio crackled and my camera has focusing issues (prior to rooting). I have contacted HTC and Sprint about the issue but because I had rooted my phone within 2 days of getting it I haven't brought myself to exchange or return the phone (I kept hoping that it was a software bug and would be fixed). Now after pairing my bluetooth with my girlfriends phone (same model and root), I can see it has to be hardware, so what are my options at this point?

    If I try to get an exchange are there any Hboots that you can't root?

    Thanks Chris.

    Chris, I think all of the Hboots are unlockable at this point.

    If you have insurance you could try for a replacement. I did read that for ones without insurance, you would have to pay $50 instead of the $35 it used to be.

    It's worth a shot factory resetting the device and finding out at the store I would think.

    Or just to find out you could probably run the Hboot customiser and take it to a Sprint store with a stock Rom on it to see what they say.

    Every hboot will always be unlockable.

    Not every hboot will have s-off available

    Right now, any hboot can get s-off. But that's not necessarily the case going forward
