How to root HTC Evo 4G LTE

Every time you think that your tablet or your smartphone is in dire need of a rooting process, you should search on the XDA Developers forum for a solution. The developers there offer many very useful solutions to your needs.

Such a solution was created even for HTC’s Evo 4G LTE. If you own the latter and it ships with whatever operating system, the tool we are about to tell you about still does its job as great as ever. But you have to keep in mind this: the smartphone you use it on must be the HTC Evo 4G. If it is another model completely, then the process will not offer the results it promises in the first place. This is why you also have to know that once you root the device, its warranty is going to get void. Sure, you will be able to regain it, but if you are a beginner it will be a bit difficult.

Requirements

Now, all you need so that the rooting process is completed the way it was intended to are the ones below.

You have to use the smartphone, install USB drivers if they aren’t already (because they are indicated should the user have a laptop with Windows pre-installed). Then you need to grab the one-click rooting package (a file called Evo4GLTERoot.zip) and file extraction software (some good ones are either 7-Zip or WinRAR). Next, disable all of the security software programs, and enable USB Debugging. This should be followed by the backup of every personal data on the HTC Evo 4G. Finally, charge the battery of the smartphone till it reaches over 65%. If your laptop uses Mac or Linux, use Drivers 64-bit Windows (HTC_Driver_64.zip) and Drivers 32-bit Windows (HTC_Driver_32.zip).

So, without further ado, the following are the steps you need to have your phone rooted. We’ll start first with the ones needed if your comp uses Mac, then the ones suited for Linux and then the steps for the Windows OS.HTC-EVO-4G-LTE-rooted
