Get Root on your HTC Device

by Salman Khan  |  in Android at  12/08/2013


HTC Explorer is one of the powerful but little old device of HTC Corporation, But once you have rooted it becomes more powerful. Therefore, I decided to create a clean tutorial (as the method started with several bugs and issues) for those who want to root their HTC Explorer.

will be editing it as new improvements appear.
btw, this will NOT change anything in your phone, it just make root access possible.



1. Install HTC Sync on your PC

you can easily grab HTC Sync from : www.htc.com/www/help/htc-explorer/#download
(needed so computer recognizes commands)


2. Unlock your phone's boot-loader

Following the steps in www.htcdev.com/bootloader
Note: HTC Explorer isn´t listed as a working device yet but it has been tested and works perfectly. Choose "all other supported models" when selecting device.


3. Add a recovery

That will allow you to install .zip ROMs. You can access to it in the menu android phones have when booting the phone after removing-inserting the battery and pressing "volume down" and "power" buttons simultaneously. (Other phones have different button combinations).
* Download A310E Recovery.zip
* Extract it in any window on your PC (ie: C:\HTC)
* Run the recovery.bat with phone in fastboot mode (first option in the "3 android menu" ) and connected with usb.
Done! You got the recovery installed if no errors, you can now install any compatible .zip ROM or app.


4. ROOT the device

 * Place this Superuser.zip file somewhere in the microSD first.
 * Go into Recovery mode ("volume down" + "power")
 * Install Superuser.zip with the option "install .zip from sd" from the recovery menu.


ROOTED !!

Note: after rooting dont restore to factory setting if you don´t want to end up in a bootloop, if this or similar happens you have to install a custom rom to fix it.
