    Default Cannot root device

    Hey guys,

    I've tried a few different methods including regaw. Everything i try seems to not even make it to the unlock bootloader stage. I had no problems with my og evo but I cannot root this phone for the life of me. Any help? I think one issue is that most of the guides are outdated now. Thanks for any help you can give.

    Do you have the drivers installed? plus you need .NET 4.0 and the usb debugging checked on your phone for regawMOd to work

    Ok so i tried the htcdev method but it did not work. I get to the part where it asks me to download and install the platform tools but it says done, did not install. I tried it a few times to no avail. I cannot figure out for the life of me why this is being such a pain for me.

    Hmm, that IS quite odd. I've never had any issues installing the necessary files.

    Ok, dumb question but I have to ask. You are downloading those to your computer correct?
