    Default Guide to rooting phone with HBOOT 2.18.0001

    Taking no credit to this one. Did root my friends phone using this method & its a lifesaver in fact being that i didnt have to roll back the update on the phone or do something else... So heres for those who have the slightest clue & are wondering how to root their phones with this HBOOT. Only thing is that this doesnt gain s-off but just unlocks the bootloader rest of the work is done from a command line promt. Read up & have fun. Btw it is possible to flash other forms of recoveries such as amon_ra or twrp being your preference...

    7.open the command prompt again on your pc

    8.Download this recovery from the CWM TEAM and place it in the same folder as fastboot (where you put unlock_code.bin)


    9. for simplicity's sake rename the above file to recovery.img

    10.in your command prompt navigate to the folder containing your fastboot files and recovery.img

    11.enter the following in the command prompt:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    12. Once that completes navigate to recovery on your phone and pres power to select it

    13.once CWM recovery boots on your phone use the volume up and down to pick Mounts and storage press power to select it

    14.select Mount usb storage

    15.take this zip and drag it to the root of your SD card


    16. on your phone press power to un mount your usb storage

    17. select go back

    18.select install zip from sd card

    19.choose zip from sd card

    20.select the su-bin-3.0.3.2-efghi-signed.zip file we just downloaded and press power to flash

    21. reboot the phone

    22.once your phone is booted go to the market and search superuser

    23.download and install superuser

    24. search busy

    25. use one of the busybox installers and install busybox (hit allow on the su notification)

    I would suggest copying & pasting those codes since its much easier instead of having to type every single character. I just copied it over instead of pasting it since its dead accurate & i got through the process without any problems. Try copying it over & if you hit a snag let me know.

    Have you installed the necessary drivers on your computer? Is your device in "FASTBOOT USB" mode?

    Tried this method last night to root my phone, I was hesitant at first but i was like "what the hell". Took me about an hour (because I was also fixing my laptop), but got it done. Phone is rooted and already deleted those ugly sprint apps.

    has anyone experienced the problem of command prompt just hanging during the part about transferring the recovery file to the phone? It's been sending the recovery file for like 10 minutes or more, is this normal? How long should the recovery file transfer take?

    It should only take seconds. How are you transferring it? What commands are you using? Are you sure you have all of the drivers installed?

    Hey all, my command prompt is stuck on "waiting for device". Any help please. My phone has the words "Locked" on the very top line of the hboot screen, if that means anything.

    When going thru the page on HTC dev be sure your copying over the codes as told to do so. Easiest option is to copy & paste. Also you can copy over from the prompt as well.

    Have you enabled FASTBOOT mode? The screen should say "FASTBOOT USB". If it doesn't, select the FASTBOOT option from the menu to enable it.

    Have you tried a different recovery? Like amon_ra.

    I get the same thing and I tried to download it three times.

    There has to be a way to get the file. This one list the exact way to do it after you've unlocked the bootloader which I was finally able to do following these instructions. I'd rather stick with a way that has worked for me and someone else has already done as well.

    I haven't tried. I'm very new to this and was trying to learn on my evo so I could then do it to my evo3d

    Well I have the Evo Design and I was able to unlock the bootloader and did the process of using the super tools to root it but when I downloaded busybox and titanium back up it said it couldn't find root access so I'm not sure what happened. When I did it everything seemed to work fine and I rebooted it.

    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to unlock my phone (Sprint EVO 4G). I've got all the way up to the point where I'm copying the identifier token into the bootloader lunlock tool. I hit "submit", though, and I get a 404 Page Not Found error. Does anyone know anything about this? They haven't taken this tool down, have they?

    Nevermind, I'm stupid. It helps if you log in first.

    My girlfriend had just updated to hboot 2.18.001 and was wanting me to try to root her phone...

    Used this method to Unlock/Root my girlfriend's EVO 4g yesterday. Took me 45 minutes. Worked perfectly. Now her Evo is running AOKP build 23. She's having a little taste of ICS and loving it!

    Thanks so much vulcan! I owe you one!!


    P.S. This ought to be a sticky!

    How do you drag something to the root of your SD card?
    "take this zip and drag it to the root of your SD card"

    Connect your device in disk drive mode and in Windows explorer, literally drag the file(s) to your sd card.
