Freeing Your EVO 3D Completely – A How To Guide

This past weekend, we witnessed the impossible being achieved once more on xda-developers. It seems thwt our goo friends over at unrevoked and AlphaRevX decided to team up and combine efforts in order to unlock the once deemed unlockable device, the EVO 3D. This was a little before the official release of the unlocked bootloader by HTC (looks like either our devs have better and more important things to do or they are simply too anxious to see this device with something other than stock software). All is nice, but running around the web or even xda, gathering information on how to free your EVO 3D can be time consuming. So, with thiz in mind, XDA member Bentenrai has decided to help out the community and prepared an all inclusive “how to” guide, which includes everything that you need to get you from point A to point B. All software, tips, tricks, and relevant pieces of information have been included in this easy to follow guide. Now, keep in mind that this is not a 1 click process, so you must be ready and prepared to get down and dirty with your PC as well as your EVO 3D.

As with most guides, this one is a work in progress, so if you have spotted any development that may affect this guide, please be sure to share it with the OP, so that the guide can be updated to reflect the most current and up to date information. Feedback as always, is much appreciated.

Watches: Luxurious Frivolity vs. Humble Practicality

Smartwatches still have a lot of growing up to do. Not too long ago the latest Canalys figures revealed a rather disappointing outcome for 2014, something we covered with the ultimate conclusion that, once again, smartwatches had no year.

We've documented many of the reasons as to...
