    This will be my tenth phone to root but my first EVO V to do. I'm going to leave it with the stock rom for now just a basic root, but this phone was a total bi@$# to activate and since the phone will be wiped when the bootloader is unlocked, does it have to reactivate?

    Pulled the trigger, very easy basic root once you get the stupid long HTC sync install done. It activated right up no issues.

    Stock rom with adaway and titanium backup and tether is just fine for now till I do some more compares on the roms.

    I do hate the hardware buttons without the back case on.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't reactivate.

    I'm feeling pretty confident on my first root, but the HTC sync link isn't working, is the new one on the new HTC site compatible.

    Link to the site ~ HTC Sync Manager download

    I hope somebody knows since I just got the phone and want to root it as well. The guide here is very through and I am confident I can do it but I saw Leonel Ramirez ask about this so I figure I will wait till somebody says something. I dont want to brick or anything.

    I have the old htc sync on my Dropbox, http://db.tt/he5c5EF7

    I'd imagine that new one would work, as you only need it for the drivers but there it is anyway just in case.

    Best s-on root instruction for EVO V 4G. A lot easier to understand than XDA dev.

    Change your rom to one that is compatible with your hboot or change your hboot to one that is compatible with your rom.

    I unlocked my bootloader and have been looking threw my options into the next step. The Root-Android.org guide suggests the Clockwork touch 5.8.7.2 to flash your rom. You suggest Super User. Is there a way to root the phone without flashing?? If not what works best? Could I just skip the flash rom part put super user on it and see if its rooted then? I get it now TWRP is a recovery to default and u use that as a backup option and super user is the code you use to root the kernel?? I definatly wanna do this and get this done just wanna know whats the best I like your guide alot very fine detailed. I am looking at the root-android.org guide and this guide
    How to Root the HTC EVO V 4G (Virgin) - TheUnlockr. <--- pretty similar to yours.

    No. The instructions tell you to do it that way for a reason. Follow the directions exactly for your model or don't bother.

    Actually the preferred recovery for most is 4ext ..... Find it on xda developers in evo 3d section

    Clockwork doesn't work well. Use twrp 2 or 4 ext. I prefer twrp.

    I followed all the steps and I got rooted successfully so big Thanks!! Now I have one more issue I need help. How the heck do I turn of the camera shutter sound? There is no option to do that and silent does not work (I tried too many times and passing the sound to the headphone is not a convenient solution).
