There is no doubt that most users are shied away from messing with the guts of their devices. Not only does this usually void your warranty, but there is also a danger of bricking your device (if things aren’t done correctly). One-click methods are the way to go for all “non-techy” users out there, or those who prefer simpler methods. The guys at XDA Developers know this, where an awesome tool has recently been released for HTC users.
The HTC Super Tool works much like other recent options out there (like Revolutionary.io). It is a Windows program that does all the work for you when rooting and unlocking a bootloader.
This third-party tool has surpassed even HTC’s bootloader unlocking tool, which is limited to a few devices. Devices for which this tool has been reported working for include the Evo Design 4G, Evo 4G, Evo 3D, Evo Shift, G2, MT3Gs, MT4G, MT4Gs, Inspire, Sensation, Incredible, Wildfire S, and the Amaze 4G.
As you can see, the list is not bad at all. This pretty much covers the whole EVO family, most of the myTouch family, and many of the popular HTC devices out there. If your smartphone is not on the list, there is still a chance that it might work, but hasn’t been tested yet. If you are feeling extra adventurous, you could give it a try and let the developer know how it goes.
Please remember that tampering with your device’s software is not supported by HTC or your carrier. If you choose to do so, no one takes any responsibility, but you. Your warranty may be void after using HTC Super Tool, and there might be a chance of your device’s functionality being affected.
Now the disclaimer is out of the way. If you have been considering rooting your HTC device, but do not like those complicated guides, this might be your best bet. Go ahead and try it if you are up to it, and let us know how things went. You can download it straight from XDA Developer’s site.
To all HTC users – do you think this is the best or easiest way to root your HTC device? If not, what option do you think is best?
