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
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.

You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
