Sup theMikMik fans
This is my first(and hopefully many to come) contribution to the community.
The reason I put this together is I have been seeing a lot of posts in Q&A about "How do I root my Evo 4G LTE?" I have also seen posts in "other threads" asking "How do I get recovery and root back after using the latest S-OFF exploit?"
This is an updated and slightly modified version of Zedomax's root method.This is not my work I just did the legwork updating it.
I updated the TWRP Recovery to the latest version 188.8.131.52 and updated the SuperSU.apk to a more up to date version. I also added the factory divers.
This will work on all ICS/JB builds. Software versions (1.13.651.1 - 1.22.651.3 - 2.13.651.1 - 3.15.651.16 - 3.16.651.3)
Using this method will NOT give you S-OFF it will help you unlock your bootloader(HTC-DEV)flash a custom recovery(TWRP) and install the Superuser app of your choice.
