The Revolutionary tool at Revolution.Io is designed to unlock the bootloader on your Htc Evo 4G which prepares it for root. This guide will take you through the process.

Prepare:
  • Backup items on your SD card (unnecessary, but just in case)
  • Take the back off your phone, remove the battery and write down your Serial Number
  • Copy the SuperUser Zip to the root of your SD
  • Make sure you have the Htc Drivers installed
  • Enable USB Debugging mode on your phone (Settings>Applications>Development)
  • Remove HTC sync

Unlocking:
  1. Go to the Revolutionary website
  2. Click the the correct download for your OS (Windows or Linux)
  3. Save the Zip and Enter Your Information (Remember the Serial Number is case sensitive!)
  4. Set beta key aside and Unzip the file
  5. Run the program as an Administrator (Make sure to install the Recovery during this process)
  6. Congrats! You are unlocked :D

Rooting:
  1. Boot into Recovery
  2. Install Superuser zip
  3. Reboot
  4. Rooted :D
