The steps we prepared will deliver root access sooner rather than later. Use them well and enjoy the many goodies only a rooting can bring!
Released in 2011, the HTC EVO 3D is available with an Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich on it. SRSRoot is the rooting app we found for you and your phone. Including it on that device will not wipe the OS away. This tool is known for its compatibility with many Android version. It is also know for its compatibility with various Build IDs. Including the one used for this guide: IML74K.
A dual-core 1.2 GHz is the handset’s CPU. Maybe you’ve been disappointed by its slow speed. Not to worry: the rooting will improve that. Another pro of this dedicated app is that it supports many gadgets. The software is powered by an SRS Server.
The root access you’ll discover soon means many new and exciting goodies. But first, you need to know that the app doesn’t charge you to download it. It also acts as an unrooting alternative to other unrooting tools you may not want to use.
The benefits of this method
The SRSRoot app is sure to keep the phone away from bloatware. With its help, the phone will be easy to personalize. There are no security issues to expect from this application. Your smartphone is going to have access to root-only apps and battery tweaks. A phone that has the new app will be able to make good use of superuser permission. Expect these, too: admin permission, custom ROMs and new features.
You’ll no longer enjoy certain things once the phone receives an update. When this happens after the smartphone’s just been rooted, the device will see its system partition erased. After that’s gone, the next thing to be damaged is the root access. Both of your handset’s internal and external SD cards are staying on the phone. The same goes for the important data.
The device’s warranty is going to be affected by the rooting. You will see it gone by the end of the procedure. Methods to grab it back do exist.
