    I think it's a bit generous to say that this method is "easy." A method (as yet to be found) that can do an in-place root would earn the classification of "easy," provided it's more or less menu driven.

    This method causes the loss of all data (which, when restored, isn't always successful), requires unlocking the boot loader, and then uses a set of tools that were meant for an older ROM version. Although it appears to work, it's not "easy."

    How do you figure? I have rooted a lot of tings and this was simple as hell I have done a bunch of command line rooting in the past and that's hard well not hard but normal people can't do that....

    This just takes reading and following instructions if people can't do that then they should not be rooting there phones (no pun intended) it's just how I feel...

    Far as loss of data its part of the rooting game every device I have ever rooted other then Samsung has required a hard wipe of the device when the boot loader is unlocked its the only way to get custom recovery on HTC Motorola and a few other brands even somE Samsung are that way....

    I'm just trying to help people out with there roots this method works and is solid its been done over 20 times by me and thousands of others with the evo 4g lte

    Well for me it was because I wasn't thinking and so I updated via sprint update and I pretty much had to force it to go back so I could get root so now I am just holding off intil a friend of mine who has rooted a lot in the past

    Yes just follow the procedure in the OP and you should be fine I have the same software as you
    Say gitit,,,,may want to add to the OP that antivirus and firewall software will block the install process.....that was the only thing i had to figure out when I was trying to install,,,,just a suggestion.....;-)

    Otherwise this is a great method for those of us that either took the update or purchased late and got stuck with the update on the phone.

    I'm looking through Regaws code to see if I can piece together another program for the newer version (with credit of course). Thing is I'm new to rooting. Will keep you guys updated if I manage something.

    That would depend on which partition it lives on. I've never used it but I would imagine it's probably the data partition since it's an installable apk and interacts with games that are installed there as well...so in that case, no you shouldn't need S-OFF, just root access. :thumbup:

    I'm running windows 8. This is a brand new PC that I built and I installed Win8 because the release candidate is free and therefore I wouldn't have to buy another copy of windows 7. However, the HTC drivers do not work on windows 8 (it says drivers are not compatible with this operating system). Is there any way I could do this method on linux or something if I made a linux partition?

    I'd appreciate any help or suggestions on this!

    Google search it. It's actually pretty easy. Someone posted the files needed for installation on a 64 bit machine. if you can't figure it out, PM me.

    This method absolutely blows. Lost all my data and never got into recovery. This guy needs to find something better to do than to bring bogus rooting methods to a public forum. My two cents. Spare yourself and move on.
