Welcome to the Perm Root Club – HTC EVO Shift 4G

The third WiMax capable device to hit the US market has joined the ranks of its brethren, which have all been permanently rooted.  XDA member bcnice20 along with the help of other devs heavily involved in the development of Android devices, has achieved permanent root on the HTC EVO Shift 4G. This means that all of you new Shift owners will be able to use Busybox, Titanium Backup, and change the look and feel of your device to your heart’s content. The process is not your typical 1 click root like unrEVOked or z4root. For this, you will have to have some familiarity with adb, pushing files, and a few other things. The guide is very well written and straight forward, but you must make sure that you follow it to the “T” in order to avoid problems down the road.

All the files and download links for the things you need are provided in the thread. Please leave feedback if you run into issues or if this guide simply “worked” for you.

Disclaimer
Please read each and every step in this guide and do them fully failure to do this exactly as it is layed out could result in a permanent brick as usual I am not responsible for anybody’s failure to read directions
.

You can find more information in the guide thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
