SimpleRoot - Fully Root Your HTC EVO 4G In One Click, Including Unlocking NAND And Flashing Recovery
Last Updated: September 28th, 2014

This article mentions rooting and flashing of custom ROMs. If you’re unfamiliar with either term, hit up our primers here and here for additional information

This root does not work for Froyo. If you're reading this now, chances are very high that you already have Froyo or something higher, in which case stop and don't run steps from this method. For Froyo root, see this post instead.

Note: If your EVO software version starts with 1.47.651, we have an updated post with an updated SimpleRoot version right here.

First Successful Root Achieved On The HTC Incredible By The Unrevoked Team

It looks like the Unrevoked team, the same one that brought you the one-click EVO root, has been playing around with some race conditions apparently present during the Incredibles' boot process, which allowed them to slowly and painfully root a couple of their phones.

The process is currently very manual and requires a lot of patience and careful timing but the Unrevoked team is not giving up, hoping to come up with a reliable method as soon as possible (they've been at it all day today).

The same hour the root instructions were released, a new root method, called unrevoked, was promised and scheduled to come out by midnight. However, Sprint's OTA update fixing the SD card issue also patched up the vulnerability that both root methods used.
