Re: How to Root EVO 4g LTE
Ahh yes, you are right sir! Thanks for the correction and sorry for passing on bad info. I try to ensure my source before passing info along but missed that the thread was closed.

Custom ROMs and kernels bring lots of tweaks and changes to the phone. While some early ROMs may be unstable (and therefor unusable) there are typically a lot of other stable options available. However, the ROMs that tweak the settings and modify the kernel are typically the ones that truly unlock the full potential of the phone's HW! I have always root'd and ROM'd my phones (EVO 4G and EVO 3D) and have never had a warranty issue. Both phones I took into the Sprint store with a custom ROM installed and they always fixed the problem for me. On my EVO 3D I even did the HTC unlock and still had the phone replaced under the warranty (due to a screen issue). Most of the tech/repair guys at Sprint have their devices root'd and ROM'd as well, so they typically don't pay any attention to this kind of thing. If there is ever any issue with having a root'd and ROM'd phone you can always restore the stock ROM via the RUU utility that is available, so this isn't really an issue. It's a fairly long, technical process so if you decide to do this be prepared to see it through to the end. You'll be glad you did.
