The group behind Unrevoked, a tool that roots and unlocks a variety of supported Android devices, just released a nice New Year's present for EVO 4G and Incredible owners. Version 3.3 of Unrevoked adds support for:
- Droid Incredible with SLCD screens
- EVO 4Gs updated to OTA 3.70.651.1
- the newest EVO 4G models with HBOOT 2.02 and 2.10
Besides compatibility updates, the new Unrevoked now uses another exploit under the hood, which is supposed to be more reliable than the previously used (and now infamous) rageagainstthecage.
As a reminder, Unrevoked allows you to accomplish the following:
- One-click root without reinstalling/reflashing/wiping your existing stock Android OS.
- Flashing of custom ClockworkMod recovery that allows installation of custom ROMs and nandroid backups/restores.
- NAND unlock and S-OFF (disabled security) for select devices (see the title as well as the quote below).
The list of supported devices as well as FAQ and changelog are available here.
As usual, download Unrevoked by visiting http://unrevoked.com/recovery.
