    I have been trying to root my Evo Design and had no success so far. I downloaded the HTC drivers and installed them on my PC, downloaded the htcsupertoolv3 and extracted it and ran the .exe file; even got the colourful flashing screen saying ROOTED but the phone is still not rooted according to the root checker apps. Also, the wifi exploit doesn't work.

    About my phone:
    Software version: 3.14.651.0.710RD
    Android version: 4.0.3
    HTC sense: 3.6

    Anyone has actually succeeded in rooting this phone? If so, please post detailed steps please!

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    No, it doesn't. Root works on all carriers.

    Unlock bootloader, flash recovery.img in hboot, flash su binary, install busybox and superuser, enjoy.

    There is no "one click" methods to root this phone but the way lolinternet isn't really that hard just make sure you follow the directions carefully

    I need to know who rooted their Evo Design after the ICS update and for that person to say how it is done and confirm they are using a rooted Evo Design post ICS update.

    Yes I don't really want a experimental ROM with some features not working, just su so I can run backup and restore and rename the .ogg for my camera sound.

    English only please! I have no idea what a hboot is or how to flash a su, or any of that stuff. I followed the steps I found online but it doesn't work.

    If your asking about a hboot or how to flash a su you really shouldnt be trying to root your phone until you have better understanding of what can go wrong and how to fix it. I say read threw the forums and the about rooting section first then root cause its pretty basic stuff and ived rooted about 3 evo designs and never had any problem with the rooting process.

    The rooting process is pretty easy if you take the time to actually read about it. We don't have a simple one click root, because we really don't need it. The process is pretty straight forward. Unlock bootloader, flash recovery, flash su binary, install superuser apk, install busybox apk, and bam. You're rooted.

    Ok so if it is so easy, is it slowing down the phone because I've heard a lot of negative feedback from people who rooted their phone and has the ics update

    No, that's just Evo Design ICS period. Root or no.

    all these people who claim they rooted their EVO Design should post the files they used because all the files I found online were not working or were for phones running gingerbread. After Sprint decided to give us the ICS update, all the GB work is useless...

    If I remember correctly, ICS broke the Zergrush exploit that was used to gain root on GB. But, you don't need root to fastboot flash recovery, then flash the su binary to gain root from recovery.

    Be patient and I'll try to write up a user friendly guide and upload needed files if I have to but that shouldn't be necessary.

    I can tell you first and foremost that you'll need the Android SDK, so you should Google how to download and install it on your computer.

    Your help would be greatly appreciated lolinternet. I am stuck trying to root the Design from Sprint also. It came installed with the newest update already. I can't even unlock it with HTCDev. It just hangs at the last step. Is this latest version even unlockable? rootable? Thank in advance for any help.

    What exactly is being done at that last step? It's been a while since I used htcdev to unlock, but I remember that I had that same hang on a certain step and had to unplug my phone then plug it back it for it to work. If it hangs in command prompt while "waiting for device" you can try that. Be very careful here. You can only disconnect it if it says "waiting for device." I would wait at least a minute before trying to be sure that it is in fact hanging.
