    Please read this entire post before attempting to root/unlock!
    RegawMOD EVO 4G LTE Rooter provides easy bootloader unlocking, recovery flashing, and rooting of the HTC EVO 4G LTE's stock firmware.
    This rooter DOES use HTCdev.com to unlock your bootloader.
    NOTE: Unlocking your bootloader erases ALL user data on the phone! Be sure to back up with Titanium or something similar!
    Successful in rooting all builds up to 1.13.651.1.
    If you have any problems while rooting, reboot your phone completely and try again.

    What it does
    • Verifies Device and Battery Level (Needs to be charged to at least 40% before running)
    • Reboots to Bootloader and Gets Unlock Token
    • Sends Token to HTCdev.com
    • Retrieves Unlock_code.bin
    • Unlocks Bootloader
    • Flashes TWRP Recovery
    • Sends Superuser packages and busybox to device
    Before Running! - Clear Your Google Wallet Settings!

    1. Unzip the .zip file to anywhere on your computer. Leave both "RegawMOD EVO 4G LTE Rooter.exe" and "AndroidLib.dll" in the folder together.
    2. Run the "RegawMOD EVO 4G LTE Rooter.exe" on your computer, Enable USB Debugging in Settings > Developer options, then plug in your Evo.
    3. It will recognize that you plugged it in, and a big button that reads "ROOT ME" will appear.
    4. Follow the on screen prompts and wait until rooting is complete.

    =============== Requirements ===============
    HTCdev Unlock (Choose "All Other Supported Models" and follow all the directions, including driver install)
    Custom recovery - I would recommend TWRP since it doesn't have the /misc issue anymore

    =============== How to Flash ===============
    • Download the ROM below and place on your internal_sdcard or sdcard (doesn't matter, just remember where you put it!)
    • Go into Settings > Power > Fast Boot and uncheck that.
    • Turn the phone off. Once off, press and hold the Volume Down + Power Button until you reach the white bootloader screen
    • Choose "RECOVERY" (volume down and up to move, power to select)
    • You SHOULD make a backup by tapping on the "Backup" button. You are not required, but I would recommend it.
    • You also SHOULD manually wipe cache, dalvik-cache, and factory reset (wipe /data). This can be done by tapping on the "Wipe" button. Choose those 3 options (and even system if you want, even though the install script does that for you)
    • Choose "Install" and locate the ROM wherever you put it. NOTE: If you don't see it, make sure that either internal_sdcard or sdcard is mounted. This can be done via the "Mount" button at the main menu of TWRP. Be sure that either internal_sdcard or sdcard is checked!
    • Wait until the install is finished and then tap "Reboot to System"

    ---------------------- Special Features of viperROM ----------------------

    viperControl Script

    [IMG] [IMG] [IMG] [IMG]

    This script is the main script used to control many features within viperROM. Currently with this script, you can:

    • Adjust the OC Daemon
    • Change schedulers
    • Adjust voltage (if on a custom kernel)
    • Manage removed apps
    • Freeze any app on the phone - NOTE: Not available on ICS yet!
    • Modify lock screen text - NOTE: Not available on ICS yet!
    • Run "fix permissions" (for FC issues)
    • Adjust the capacitive button brightness
    • Edit some features in build.prop
    • Manage the hosts file
    • Fix a damaged /misc partition
    To access viperControl:
    • Open up Terminal Emulator
    • Type "su" (lowercase, without the quotes and grant it Superuser access if you haven't already)
    • Type "vc" (lowercase, without the quotes)

    OC Daemon

    The OC daemon was created by rmk40 of Team Unity. I take no credit for the daemon, only the script I made to make it easier to work with. More information can be found here, but I will sum it up and explain the script below...

    This daemon, written in C, completely eliminates the need for SetCPU and other CPU controlling apps. The daemon handles min/max frequencies for both screen on and screen off but it has one more trick up its sleeve... It can change the governor INSTANTLY depending on the screen state. I have tested it and I can tell you that it really does work instantly and I think this is going to be a great battery saver! I have set default values within the ROM as follows: Screen Off - conservative @ 192min/432max and Screen On - ondemand @ 192min/1188max. Using these settings, I get NO lag. Battery life is amazing, over 19+ hours for me with moderate usage!

    If you decide that you want to change the settings of the daemon, here is how you do so...
    • Open up Terminal Emulator
    • Type "su" (lowercase, without the quotes and grant it Superuser access if you haven't already)
    • Type "vc" (lowercase, without the quotes)
    • Enter "1" (without the quotes) and you will see all of your options
    All the settings can be edited from there. If you want to verify that this is working, you can run these commands from adb shell:

    Current CPU frequency
    cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq
    Current CPU governor
    cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
    Current min CPU Freq (you will see this change when the screen state changes)
    cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_min_freq
    Current max CPU Freq (you will see this change when the screen state changes)
    cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq

    Here are a few things that you need to know about the script...
    • You MUST flash a custom kernel to overclock! The ROM includeds the stock kernel that is not capable of overclocking. Well why do you call it the "OC Daemon" then?? Because I didn't make it and that's what they called it AND the daemon is capable of controlling OC. Makes sense to me. If you want to overclock (after flashing a custom kernel, of course), run the script and change the MAX awake to whatever OC you would like.
    • The phone will boot up and detect if you're using SetCPU or other CPU apps. If you are, the daemon will be DISABLED automatically. If you aren't, the daemon will be enabled.

    Did you make this D:

    Or are you just passing a good link?
  3. Aug 18, 2006
    Used it the day I got my Evo LTE. It's fully automated, and it worked flawlessly.

    Although on the flip side, it's funner doing it manually and using adb yourself, plus you learn the basics of adb and fastboot.

    Most likely copied and pasted from xda-developers. I know people who write just like that. Atleast give them credit if you did...

    EDIT: Some of the links go back to xda-developers.net, KNEW IT!

    I was just asking. :razz: I suspected it was a copy and paste as this wouldn't be the best forum to advertise this sort of thing. But who knows, we may have an equal to kyle in our midst. Was just making sure. :wink:

    Sorry... i didnt say i made it. Look at the end, it has all the thanks and the makers there. None of which include my name. It is ported over from xda for people. I am making a new post with a rom that i have, once miui is out, i will replace it with that!
