EVO Shift 4G Gets Permanent Root!

The guys over at XDA-Developers (who else?) have finally gained permanent root access to the HTC EVO Shift 4G. This is a great advancement for the Shift. It’s kinda become an initiation rite for new Android devices. You haven’t made it as a device until someone’s rooted and overclocked you to twice your factory speed. Anyway, the process doesn’t look too hard, but it’s definitely not a one-click root type of thing. You need ADB and a good knowledge of how to use it. If you don’t know what ADB even is, this process is probably not for you.

As always, you root at your own risk, and rooting voids your warranty. You were warned. With that being said, you can head on over to the XDA thread if you’re feeling brave enough to try it out on your EVO Shift. We’re hearing that a custom recovery image is also on the way.

Big thanks to the guys over at DroidDog for the tip.
