How to Root HTC EVO 4G LTE

New HTC EVO 4G LTE owners who want to root their device can now do so as a root method has become available just a day after the phone started arriving on the doorsteps of customers.

The process, which has been posted by zedomax over at XDA-Developers, is an easy one click root that is available to those running Windows, Mac OS X or even a Linux based computer.

This process is about as simple as it gets. Windows users will want to install a couple of drivers but after that, all it takes is a simple little script to root the device. That’s about as painless as its going to get.

Once root is achieved on the HTC EVO 4G LTE, users will then have full access over the phone. Keep in mind, this is a new release, so there won’t be much out there to install or hack just yet.

Those who are trying to root for the first time need to be especially careful because there is always a chance that something could go wrong. Bricking a phone a day after launch doesn’t sound like too much fun so please be careful.
