Evo Root Instructions

I take no credit for this, toastcfh at xda has done everything and i'm just posting his instructions here so we can all take advantage of it. original post here

HOW TO ROOT YOUR HTC EVO

DO NOT USE A RUU FROM SPRINT IF U WANNA MAINTAIN ROOT. WAIT FOR ME OR SOMEONE HERE TO MAKE A ROOT UPDATE.ZIP.

Major thanx for those who helped:

keishou (for the rooted build. without it none of this would be possible)
maejrep (for testing and modding a recovery for the EVO)
Flipz (for hosting the files)
Paul (for his recovery work on the desire and legend)
Amon_RA (for his recovery source on github)

WHAT THIS ROOT METHOD WILL DO:

- wipe all of your data so brace for that. backup or what not
- Allow you to flash custom roms
- Boot into a custom recovery
- Write to system, boot and recovery partitions through recovery

WHAT THIS ROOT METHOD SADLY WONT ENABLE YOU TO DO:

- Write to system or recovery while in android
- Flash a custom recovery that can be booted into by holding vol down and powering on

THINGS YOU WILL NEED:

download files below:

- PC36IMG.zip

- evorecovery

INSTUCTIONS FOR ROOTING:

- Put the PC36IMG.zip on the root of your sdcard

Code:
adb push PC36IMG.zip /sdcard
- Power off the phone
- Hold volume down while powering the phone on. continue to hold volume down until you see the WHITE bootloader screen.
- After a few seconds it will begin to checking for files, and find PC36IMG.zip. while its doing this it will show a blue progress bar while its checking. (this takes 30 - 60 seconds to finish)
- It will then list all the images in the zip and ask you if want to flash. SAY YES
- When its finished it will ask you if you would like to reboot. AGAIN... SAY YES
- At this point it will boot into a rooted rom.
- YOU ARE NOW ROOT!!!
- rename the PC36IMG.zip on your sdcard:
- plug your phone into a usb port on your desktop and do:

Code:
adb shell mv /sdcard/PC36IMG.zip /sdcard/root-PC36IMG.zip
RECOVERY INSTRUCTIONS:

- Extract the evorecovery.zip to your desktop
- plug your phone into a usb port on your desktop
- In a shell:

Code:
adb reboot recovery
- this will reboot your EVO into recovery mode. at this point turn your attention to the directory u extracted the evorecovery.zip to.

Code:
For Windows XP ~~>  Run recovery-windows.bat
For Vista and Windows 7 do it as Admin
- in a shell do:

Code:
For Linux ~~> ./recovery-linux.sh
- at this point turn your attention to the phone and navigate to create a Nandriod Backup. you can now flash custom roms, write, and make changes to system.

- to flash a custom rom put the rom on the root of your sdcard. wipe data, dalvic cache and chose the option to flash update.zip from sdcard.

RECOVERY NAVIGATION:

-
Code:
Volume up/down moves through the list and Power selects.
RECOVERY SOURCE:

- http://github.com/jhansche/amonra_bo...ree/supersonic

Code:
git clone git://github.com/jhansche/amonra_bootable_recovery.git
git checkout supersonic

You need to open a coomand prompt. Open start menu, then under search put in cmd, a command prompt will open and you have to make sure your device is recognized through adb. That command prompt is where you input commands

Re: How to Root Your Evo

once its rooted, do you use the same tethering app as the one used for previous androids such as the hero or do a new app need to be created.
