    Default Evo 4G LTE 1.22.651.3 Root (EASY)

    For all of you who are wanting to root the Evo 4G LTE with the new update 1.22.651.3 There is an easy method I have tested it with my phone and have done it on 5 of my friends phones here are the steps you need to do.

    First off I did not make any of these rooting tools regaw_leinad did credit credit goes to him

    Requirements
    Windows Computer
    HTC Drivers installed
    .NET 4.0 installed
    Active Internet Connection (for communication with HTCdev.com)

    First you need to download these files first one is RegawMOD EVO 4G LTE Rooter for either 32bit or 64bit windows also you need to download the drivers for your phone.

    Link here [ROOT] RegawMOD EVO 4G LTE Rooter | Updated 06.13.12 - xda-developers Read there instructions there to use this... NOTE: Unlocking your bootloader erases ALL user data on the phone! Be sure to back up!


    2nd file Evo4GLTERoot2.zip can be found here Download HTCEvo4GLTE/rooting at DownloadAndroidROM.com

    First step BACK UP RegawMOD will unlock the boot loader and resets your phone

    Make sure you on the 1.22.651.3 if not update to it...

    Install the Drivers and Net 4.0 if you don't have it

    Then run the RegawMOD file follow instructions on screen It will unlock the boot loader reset the phone and install the custom recovery It will fail when it tries to do the root. this was made for the older software version this is ok ignore the failure... It will still unlock the boot loader and install the custom recovery.

    Now you need to unzip the Evo4GLTERoot2.zip file inside this file you will find one called CWM-SuperSU-v0.87.zip move this file to the root of your SD card (internal)

    Go in to recovery browse to the file and install it then reboot your now rooted

    If you having a prob you may need to change your firewall settings and or disable your anti virus program confirmed works fine with avast

    ENJOY

    Just rooted and unlocked from HTCEvo hacks, however never put CWM-SuperSu-V.087.zip in sd card as in your instructions, just opened phone and dragged to phone contents. Now I have S-on, unlocked, rooted but no CWM-SuperSu. Therefore root not complete.
    Any directions for a way to complete or start over. Thanks:

    The Internal storage is refereed to as internal SD card so if you ran the rooting file RegawMOD then you boot loader should be unlocked and you should have custom recovery Use the custom recovery to flash the CWM-SuperSU-v0.87.zip or CWM if thats what you have and that should give you root I am not sure if you can rerun the root over the top of any other rooting utility's you can try it but it may brick your phone

    Wait, I was under the impression that you could do this method but be able to backup your current configuration without losing data/settings.

    After reading this, it seems that regardless you'll lose everything because you have to do a full wipe in order for the process to work?

    Please correct me if I'm mistaken. If that is the case, there is essentially no way to root currently that will allow you to nand-back up your current stock ROM so you could easily go back to it?

    BTW thank you for posting this, greatly appreciated.

    Not that i'm aware of when you unlock the boot loader it wipes the phone and you have to have the boot loader unlocked to root...

    Alrighty, then are there non-root ways to back up everything on your device? Because I mean the guide in the OP says:

    First step BACK UP RegawMOD will unlock the boot loader and resets your phone

    Not correct it works your not doing something right (No pun) or something on your PC is blocking the procedure try hard resetting your phone and disable any anti virus programs you have running...

    If you unlocked and have custom recover flash the SU zip file using it
