    How do you root a phone when my HTC Evo 4G LTE has the .4 RUU stock version installed? To S-OFF Rumrunner says that my phone needs rooted before it can continue. Every method of rooting wants a Hboot 2.09 or earlier. Nothing supports Hboot 2.10 on the HTC Evo 4G LTE which the .4 update installs.
    Unlock with HTCDev, install custom recovery, flash stock rooted 4.13.651.4. If you want S-OFF, run Rumrunner.

    That would be one way to obtain a rooted rom. What the poster is asking is how to root HIS stock ROM. I am curious as well.

    I have the stock 4.13.651.4 RUU installed on my phone s-on and relocked. I unlocked and installed custom recovery and rooted with superSU but the rumrunner cmd promt says that i either need an unsecure kernel or number 2 i forgot what it said im assuming it was an error pretaining to the 4.13.651.4 firmware. Is there any way to s-off this firmware yet?

    Same steps. Instead of the last step, just reboot from custom recovery. It'll tell you your ROM isn't rooted and offer to root it for you.

    See my previous steps. Flash stock rooted. Rumrunner will work.

    mmm, yeah that did not work. Unlocked just fine then recovery install failed leaving me with no recovery. Then I fastbooted recovery installed and it told me I had no OS. Would not boot past the white HTC screen. Ended up using the RUU to get back in business. Unlock btw erases internal which I had forgotten did that. Too much time wasted. .4 works well enough for me. I'd like to see them make it official but if they don't that's okay too. My phone runs well.

    Sounds like you used the wrong recovery.

    First couple attempts were with Clockwork, that didn't seem to do anything. Then I used the latest TWRP. So yeah, probably mucked it up. Good guess! lol

    P.S. is there anyway to root without using recovery?
