    Default Fastest way to Root Evo 4G

    Hi guys,

    What is the fastest way to root an original evo4g running 2.3.3??

    Gingerbreak doesnt work and unrevoked gives me the classic "is your firmware too new?" Error message. Yes i tried factory reset & installing / uninstalling htc sync. i have all the drivers.

    I just acquired this phone and i cant stand not having root access. Please help.

    Oh my computer is Vaio running vista 64bit.

    Im pretty sure this is an old topic, but i cant seem to find it. Maybe this will get rerouted to ALL THINGS ROOT. Sorry moderator!!

    If you have hboot 2.18 i think you have to use htcdev.
    Here is a link for that thread.

    Yeah Jcwguy is correct, you need to use Revolutionary for the Evo4g on 2.3.3, it will take literally a few minutes to complete once your set up.

    The 2.18 Hboot is comes with the 2.3.5 update, and will require the HTCDEV method, so don't update

    Unrevoked - firmware too new?
    Revolutionary - waiting for device...
    Gingerbreak - .........
    Htc supertool v3 - ROOTED!! (Lies)

    No way for me to root. :/

    Anything else?

    Make sure you run unrevoked as Administrator otherwise the operating system will not grant you the necessary privileges to modify the phone.

    I did. It eternally waits for the phone. The phone charges and my computer sees it but never connects to revolutionary

    go here and use this..not the supertool, you need to unlock the bootloader before you can go any further
