    How to Root the Sprint HTC Evo 3D and Install Recovery (2.3.3)

    We are assuming you have a Windows computer for this version. Linux download is available, but not covered by this tutorial.

    Thanks goes out to AlphaRevX and Unrevoked for putting their time and effort into a fairly easy method of installing a recovery on the HTC Evo 3D. All in all this allows us to also gain root on our device.

    Website:
    Revolutionary




    FAQ and Credits:
    public:revolutionary [RootWiki]




    Note that this is a developers preview. It's not in the final form the creator desires, but it worked great for us.

    If you're with Cricket, you will probably have to reflash your device.



    Install HBOOT Drivers (if they have never been installed previously)

    "Windows users, please download and install
    these HTC fastboot drivers


    ." You'll probably be prompted for these drivers once needed.

    The HTC Evo thread contains one method of installing HBOOT drivers:
    http://tinyurl.com/3llsk53




    Download Revolutionary


    1. YOU SHOULD TURN OFF FASTBOOT To turn off fastboot go to Menu > Settings > Power > scroll down and uncheck Fastboot.
    2. Confirm your HBOOT version.
    3. Navigate to
      Revolutionary


      and download. The beta key form will appear.
    4. Extract the zip file and run revolutionary.exe.
    5. Follow the instructions.
    6. For us the command prompt disappeared and we reboot the device (watch video).
    7. Device might boot a couple of times before stable. This happened to us.


    If I left anything out, please let me know. I've been moving all weekend and just got my computer back up. Thanks.

    GreenK45 works with rooted Evo 3Ds. I've gone back to the $45 plan now.

    Excellent actually (talk, text, MMS, internet w/ the same APN). I figured you were rooting to do the same. I'm glad I can do screen caps now.

    Why would you use wifi tether when you can use the built in tether app? You're going to have to use the proxy in your browser if you use the 45 plan (wap.mycricket.com).

    Sprint Hotspot.... If it doesn't work immediately, try no security.

    I'm gonna try the $55 plan for another month. It's been good to me so far but I could use that extra $10. Does the autostart.sh process get killed by the phone often? I had that problem with my EVO 4g.

    Wrong section, but yes you can get the phone fully flashed and use the 55 plan. If it's on 2.2 and rooted (there is no 2.3 root solution for the original EVO) and configured right, it can be on the 45 with Internet also.

    I'm gonna try the $55 plan for another month. It's been good to me so far but I could use that extra $10. Does the autostart.sh process get killed by the phone often? I had that problem with my EVO 4g.

    I haven't had problems yet. Are you using some autokiller app? I was using GreenK45 so it's not exactly the same setup as autostart.sh and u2nl.

    The 3G icon let's you know whether or not your phone has registered with the mobile network (data) and that it's 3G and not 1x.

    I haven't read about anyone choosing the wrong boot version. Follow the instructions for the part about new phones on the flashing tutorial. It deals with hands free activation problems.
