How to Root the Sprint EVO

How To - By: pdaBlast! Staff - February 11, 2011

In order to Root your Sprint EVO you need a couple of things. First you'll need some software from Unrevoked called unrevoked3. You'll also need HBOOT drivers if you're on a PC.


  • Uninstall HTC Sync if you have previously installed it
  • Install the HBOOT drivers (see unrevoked.com for more info).
  • Turn on USB debugging by going to Menu > Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging.
  • Plug your EVO into your computer and choose charge only for the USB connection.
  • Run unrevoked's reflash_package.
  • That's it!

    If you root your EVO on a Mac it's much easier. You basically just run unrevoked3 and it does everything for you.
