We’ve got some great news for those of you who’ve used the HTC method to root your HTC Evo 3D and you have HBOOT 1.50 with S-ON, you can actually flash a new kernel along with your ROM simply by loading ClockworkMod Recovery from fastboot, which allows you to write to the boot partition.
First, put your phone in fastboot mode by turning off “Fastboot” under Settings->Power. Then power off your phone and reboot into recovery by holding
For some reason, if you need to unroot your HTC Evo 3D back to stock, here’s how to do it if you used Revolutionary root method (won’t work if you are on HBOOT 1.50 and rooted with HTC Method!). Also, Sprint isn’t so tough about returning rooted phones, last week I returned my Evo 3D with root(HTC Method) and ROM because I kept getting error 16, got an exchange no questions asked!
Step 1. Download PC86IMG.zip file here then copy over to the root folder of your Evo 3D’s SD ca
*Note – This method of rooting currently doesn’t allow you to flash new kernels (so no overclocking) but you can flash new ROMs. If you haven’t done OTA update to HBOOT 1.50, please follow the method outlined here instead.
This new rooting method from HTC works on software version 2.08.651.2 and later using HTC’s unlock method. You can also do it on all platforms including Windows, Linux, and Mac.
Before we begin, check the software number on your phone by going to Setting
UPDATE: No worries, you can do the OTA update now, I’ve did the OTA myself and rooted my phone again using HTC’s unlocking method, it works fine, you can read up on how to root Evo 3D using HTC method here.
HTC Evo 3D OTA update 2.08.651.2 is coming tomorrow and I just want to remind folks who have not rooted to NOT UPDATE and those who’ve rooted to NOT UPDATE.
For rooted folks, the OTA update should be available shortly after the release
For those of you who are on Viper ROM (for Evo 3D), did you know that there’s a “hidden” OC daemon inside the ROM?
OC daemon, as the name states, is a overclocking daemon, that you can use to control minimum and maximum clock(CPU) speed. SetCPU app can do that too but the OC daemon goes one step further and let you control the clock speed when your phone is in sleep mode.
By setting your clock speed to be much lower in sleep mode, you can save additional battery power during course of a day if you tend to not use your phone often.
For those of you who failed while trying to install ClockworkMod Recovery manually when you were rooting your Evo 3D, here’s how to do it:

Why install new ROMs?
Well, it’s been only couple days since the permanent root method has been available to the public but there’s already over 10 custom ROMs you can get for the Evo 3D.
For one example, the MikG 3D ROM comes with a hacked Sprint hotspot app and USB t
For those of you new to the HTC Evo 3D, once you’ve rooted your Evo 3D, you will want to backup your newly rooted ROM if you are thinking about doing things like adding a new overclocked kernel or install new ROMs.
You want to create a restore point, sorta like Windows 7 system restoration feature, so you always can go back to a ROM that’s working stable. Also, this is a great way to have 4 or 5 ROMs on your phone and switch ROMs on the go.
It’s pretty is to do, just go into ClockworkMod Recovery by taking your battery out then h
