PostSubject: Newer HTC Phones The Revolutionary Method   Sat Sep 08, 2012 4:05 am

Ok guys from the makers of Unrevoked comes Revolutionary,a great new tool that unlocks the bootloader of many new HTC phones.This won't actually root your phone,but after unlocking the bootloader,you can flesh ClockworkMod Recovery and then flash a ROM of your choice,meaning you can flash a ROM that gives you root access.Currently,Revolutionary is in developer preview,but you can download it and try it on these supported phones:

  • HTC Desire
  • HTC Wildfire (HTC Buzz)
  • HTC Aria (HTC Liberty)
  • HTC Incredible S (HTC Vivo)
  • HTC Droid Incredible 2 (HTC VivoW) : Revolutionary only works on the Droid Incredible 2 running HBOOT .97 and below.If you are running HBOOT .98 or above you will need to downgrade your HBOOT version .97 before using Revolutionary
  • HRC Desire S (HTC Saga)
  • HTC View (HTC Express)
  • HTC Flyer
  • HTC Sensation (HTC Pyramid)
  • HTC Evo 3D (HTC Shooter) : Revolutionary only works on the HTC Evo 3D running HBOOT 1.4 and below.If you are running HBOOT 1.5 or above,you will need to unlock your bootloader using HTC's official tool and root your phone using these instructions
  • HTC Thunderbolt (HTC Mecha)
  • HTC EV0 4G (HTC Supersonic)
  • HTC myTouch Slide 4G (HTC Doubleshoot)
Now let's see what will you need:

  • A computer that is running Windows or Linux to run Revolutionary.

  • Revolutionary: At the bottom of the page,you will see downloads for both Windows and Linux.After you click on one,you will be asked to name your phone,your HBOOT version,and enter your serial number,which will give you beta key allowing you to use the program.You can find both your HBOOT version and serial number after you start the up the program.

  • HTC Fastboot Drivers (Windows only): Windows users using Revolutionary will need to install a few drivers to get it working properly.Linux users won't need these.

Ok let's see the process now:

To unlock and root your phone with Revolutionary,first download the program as described above and extract the files to your desktop.If you are on Windows,grab the HTC Fastboot drivers and install them as well.On your phone,head to Settings > Applications > Development and make USB Debugging is turned On.
Plug in your phone and make sure it's set to ''Charge Only''

Start up Revolutionary and make not of your HBOOT version.Head back to Revolutionary's download page and pick your HBOOT version from the dropdown menu.The Revolutionary command prompt window should also list your serial number; copy that and paste it into the beta key box.Hit OK,copy your beta key,and then paste it into the command prompt.Revolutionary will root the phone,and reboot it a few times-just let it do it's thing.

When it prompts you to download ClockworkMod Recovery,type Y and press Enter.If all goes well,it should flash ClockworkMod Recovery to your device,which allows you to root your phone and flash custom ROMs.Again this will take a while let your phone work.If it doesn't work,you should be able to flash ClockworkMod by downloading ROM Manager from the Market and flashing it from the top option on the APP's home screen.

When all that's done,you still need to gain root access to your phone.Download ZIP file and put it on the root of your SD card (without extracting it).Shut down your phone,and boot it up into HBOOT.Usually this means holding the volume down button and then pressing the power button,though it may different from phone to phone.Choose Recovery from the meny (using your volume rocker) and press the power button to enter ClockworkMod.

Once inside ClockworkMod,choose ''Install ZIP from SD Card'',then pick ''Choose ZIP from SD Card''.Choose the ZIP file you just added to your SD card,and let it do it's thing.When you are done,head back to the main menu and choose ''Reboot System Now''. Once you have rebooted,check your app drawer for the Superuser app. If it's there,you have achieved root,and you can get on the really fun stuff.
