How to Update your Rooted HTC Evo 4G LTE to 1.22.651.3 with ROOT!

howto-update-rooted-htcevo4glte-1.22.651.3-1-with-root-11

I probably get at least 10 e-mails per day from people asking me, “Max, do I have to unroot to get the latest OTA updates?” or “Max, can you get OTA updates after rooting my phone?”

Well, the answer is no, you cannot get OTA (Over The Air) updates after rooting without doing procedures like unrooting or installing the stock recovery back.

BUT, there’s a better way for rooted users.  If you are rooted, usually there’s a CWM flashable zip file floating around on XDA so you can easily update your phone to the latest software without losing roo

How to Install Custom ROM on Rooted HTC Evo 4G LTE!

howto-install-custom-rom-rooted-htcevo4glte-1

Want to install a custom ROM on your rooted HTC Evo 4G LTE?

It’s pretty simple to do.  First, you will need an unlocked bootloader and TWRP Recovery installed.

Step 1. Download the custom ROM you want to install, usually a “zip” file.  Don’t unzip the file and copy the whole file over to your Evo 4G LTE.  You can also download ROMs straight to your phone but I don’t really recommend it as downloads can get corrupt when downloading on your phone plus downloads really slow.  If you can, try downloading on your computer then copy over to

So, you want to unroot your HTC Evo 4G LTE?
