Root 3D with new bootloader 1.5?

I just purchased a new Evo 3D yesterday and the store employee downloaded all the ota updates. I have bootloader 1.5 and it says locked. The root method available in the forum wont work. Device is not supported. Any other ideas or do I just have to wait till there is support for this.

Re: Root 3D with new bootloader 1.5?

You have to use HTC's method to unlock the phone. It's explained in detail in several threads on xda. I'll post a relevant one below .

I will just wait patiently for a 1 click or simpler root process. This phone has been the only phone I don't mind not rooting yet. It's awesome no matter what. Of course, I can't wait for wifi tethering but for now easy tether will do.

Re: Root 3D with new bootloader 1.5?

I used this method but it effed my phone completely up when I tried updating the pri/radio. Had to go into bootloader then usb fast boot and unroot and use the HTC RUU to get it back to working order.

Re: Root 3D with new bootloader 1.5?

at the end of the HTC instructions for root on their site there is an ADB command. I couldn't run the RUU until I did that.

fastboot oem lock

^this was it. If successful your bootloader screen will read relocked instead of unlocked or something to that effect.
