How to Manually Root the HTC Evo 4G for Free

The HTC Evo 4G is one of HTC’s best-selling Android smartphones. Sprint is particularly in love with the Evo 4G and spent millions advertising the device as its premier Android smartphone.

Well, the Evo 4G is nearly 3 years old and it’s starting to show its age. That’s why many Evo 4G users have decided to root their smartphones in order to unlock better performance, better security, and a wide range of expanded features.

Want to experience the feeling of a brand new smartphone without spending a dime? Here are a few of the reasons why so many HTC Evo 4G users root their phones:

-Download and install custom ROMs and the latest versions of Android

-Access Wi-Fi and Bluetooth tethering for free, something that most HTC 4G Evo users pay $30 per month for with Sprint and other US networks

-Enjoy faster Android performance

-Experience better security

-Download thousands of restricted root-only apps from the Google Play Store

-Update your Evo 4G to the new generation long after it’s been abandoned by HTC

Sure, you could buy a brand new Android smartphone and enjoy some of the features listed above. But rooting your HTC Evo 4G is a great way to save money. Your phone will feel brand new once the rooting process is complete! And best of all, none of your data will be lost.

Warning: Before You Proceed

Rooting any Android smartphone can be risky when done incorrectly. It generally voids your warranty and has very small chance of bricking your phone (only if something goes catastrophically wrong).

Of course, since the HTC Evo 4G is already nearly 3 years old, maybe you’re not worried about wrecking it? Your warranty is probably over anyway. Worst case scenario – you brick your Evo 4G and get a new phone. Obviously, if you follow the instructions correctly, that won’t happen.

Required Materials

-HTC Evo 4G with at least 50% battery life

-Internet connected PC

-USB/Micro USB cord

-About an hour of free time

Step by Step Guide

Step 1) Download the unlocked bootloader from the official HTC Developers’ website here:

Step 2) Download the HTC Evo 4G root package to your PC from here:

Step 3) Extract files from the root package to your PC’s desktop and make sure fastboot.exe is on your desktop

Step 4) Power down your HTC Evo 4G

Step 5) Reboot your device into bootloader mode by pressing and holding the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time

Step 6) Once your smartphone powers into bootloader mode, choose the Fastboot option using the Power button

Step 7) Connect your HTC Evo 4G to your PC

Step 8) Open a Windows command prompt (hint: hold Shift and right-click on an empty part of your desktop and then click Open command window here)

Step 9) Enter the following into the Command Prompt Window:

fastboot flash recovery recovery-RA-supersonic-v2.3.img

Step 10) Wait for the process to complete. This will flash the custom recovery tool onto your Evo 4G.

Step 11) Tap Bootloader on your device using the Power button

Step 12) Choose the Recovery option from your screen

Step 13) Choose USB-MS toggle

Step 14) You can now see your Evo 4G as a disk drive on your PC. Now, you can transfer the file (extracted from the Root Package in step 2) onto the root folder of your Evo’s SD card storage

Step 15) From the Evo’s recovery menu, tap Flash zip from sdcard and then Choose zip from sdcard

Step 16) Go to the folder you used in Step 14 and choose that folder for flashing

Step 17) Once the flashing process is complete, reboot your device.

Step 18) That’s it! Your HTC Evo 4G has been successfully rooted! You can now download custom ROMs

As far as rooting instructions go, the HTC Evo 4G’s rooting process is relatively long and complex. With newer devices with more support, rooting tends to be simpler. Unfortunately, One Click Root does not currently support the HTC Evo 4G or else this rooting process would be 100% and completed in 5 minutes!
