New Automated HTC EVO 4G LTE Root Method

The HTC EVO 4G LTE will undoubtedly be one of those crowd favorite devices for some time to come. With some pretty awesome stuff being released in the last couple weeks, development continues to move right along with a new root method that is, believe it or not, even easier than the solutions in place now.

XDA Senior Member regaw_leinad brings a completely one-click solution that roots the phone, unlocks the bootloader using HTC Dev’s website, and installs a custom recovery. What separates this method from others is the truly automated process. The other methods require users to unlock the bootloader manually, going to the HTC Dev website and entering in their information on their own. This method does all of that for you. The full process, according to regaw_leinad, includes:

Verifies Device and Battery Level (Needs to be charged to at least 40% before running)
Reboots to Bootloader and Gets Unlock Token
Sends Token to HTCdev.com
Retrieves Unlock_code.bin
Unlocks Bootloader
Flashes TWRP Recovery
Sends Superuser packages and busybox to device

Unfortunately, however, it is unable to make bacon and pay your parking tickets. As the first truly automated one-click method for the HTC EVO 4G LTE, users of all skill levels can now get in on the rooting fun.

Check out the original thread for the download links, instructions, and much more.

The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
