The HTC EVO 4G LTE handset has just been released this month, so its users might consider in taking full advantage of its capabilities. And to do so, they must first learn how to root their new smartphones. Fortunately for them, we now have the easiest way for completing the up-mentioned operation, all being possible thanks to those of xda-developers who had managed to gain root access over the HTC EVO 4G LTE internal system. We will be checking in how to do the same, so for the full step by step guide make sure you read all the lines from below.

I will explain the one click root solution for your Evo 4G, meaning that the method is easy to understand, safe for your handset and fast, so it can be completed in just a couple of minutes and without requiring complicated skills from your side. All you will have to do is to download the proper tools, run the same and enjoy the results. Anyway, don’t try to do things without consulting a tutorial as you can brick your phones. Also, apply this guide only for the HTC Evo 4G LTE and not for any other similar handsets.

Before adventuring in rooting the Android system, you must know that this operation will make you void the HTC warranty. If you somehow do something wrong (this can take place only of you don’t follow my directions) than nobody will help you out. The only way in which you can restore the lost warranty will be by downgrading to the official version of the firmware. That’s why I recommend you to follow our previous guide and learn how to backup the current ROM. You can do this by installing and using a custom recovery image, but you have all the details needed in our tutorial. If you choose not to save the ROM, be extremely careful in what you do.

Furthermore, it is a good idea to backup the data stored on your EVO 4G too. By rooting the phone you can lose all of your personal info and recent saves. Also, the market apps, contacts, call logs, images and videos files are in danger too so back it up as well. In order to do it wright you can download backup and restore apps for Android, sync with your Gmail account or use a computer or the phone’s SD card for temporarily saving files. All these are just for preventing unpleasant situations, so it’s up to you whether or not to complete the same.

Finally, let’s see which the pre requisites are. These operations are not just a recommendation from our part; if you don’t complete them you will not be able to root your HTC EVO 4G LTE.

  • The handset must have enough battery for being able to stay opened through the procedure. If its power is less than 60%, charge the battery first.
  • Then, disable the security programs that are running on your computer and on your phone. You can reactivate the same after we are done.
  • On your smartphone you should enable USB debugging (go to Settings and Development options).
  • Furthermore, on the computer you must have installed the phone’s drivers.

Now, as soon as you are done with the up-listed tasks, you can begin the step by step guide. Remember that the warranty will be lost, so be careful and do as explained. You can share and discuss the possible issues during the comments are from below.
