A one-click root method for the HTC EVO 4G LTE was released a few days ago which made the rooting process quite easy. But it seems it wasn’t easy enough, as XDA Senior Member regaw_leinad has come up with a newer and even easier method to root the Evo 4G LTE — RegawMOD EVO 4G LTE Rooter.
The biggest advantage to RegawMOD is that along with rooting the device, it also unlocks the bootloader on the phone and installs TWRP recovery as well, so that you can install custom ROMs, kernels and other modifications. Do keep in mind that unlocking the bootloader voids the warranty on the device.
Read on to find out how the RegawMOD EVO 4G LTE Rooter can be used on the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
This hack and guide are applicable only for HTC EVO 4G LTE. DO NOT try this on any other device.
The methods and procedures discussed here are considered risky and you should not attempt anything if you don’t know completely what it is. If any damage occurs to your device, we won’t be held liable.
