Rooting guide for Droid DNA Released
As we all know, the first step when a new device is released is to get it rooted. For some devices, it can get pretty messy. For others though, it’s a tried and true method that works on many devices. For HTC devices, most of them have a single way of being rooted, starting with HTCDev. Now, the HTC Droid DNA is among the rooted.
XDA News Writer HQRaja has posted a root guide for the Droid DNA. It’s pretty typical for a HTC device, so those who are coming from another HTC device should feel at home. In short, use HTCDev’s website to unlock the device’s bootloader. From there, you Fastboot flash a custom recovery (both CWM and TWRP are available), and then flash the SuperSU and busybox package in your custom recovery.
As stated, previous HTC owners shouldn’t have many issues with this method, and users have reported that it works well. So if you want to get your device rooted, this is the guide for you. For full instructions and more, check out the root thread.
