EVO 3D rooted

In what will forever be known as the Great Tease of June 30, 2011, the twitters are going a little nuts this afternoon of the apparent rooting of the HTC EVO 3D. See that there? That's the file directory of a rooted EVO 3D. And currently that's as close as you can get to it.

Don't get us wrong, we're excited, too. We're fully expecting a full root method to be released any time now. And the sooner the better. But until then, keep on staring at the picture.

someone please hellppp! First of all I am a nooob! Ok so I have an evo 3d and I used the HTC Method off trying to root it. I followed all the directions to the tutorial and everything went smooth until i had to enter fast boot flash recovery cwm- It kept saying sending message or sumthin like that. Finally I got it to go to the revolutionary menu and continued to follow the directions to do something with the .zip file. Then it re booted. SO as of now my phone is unlocked with a s-on. Then i downloaded the ROM manager and downloaded the clockwork mod recovery. I ran the clockwork mod then I backed up my current ROM. Only problem is that there are no files on my sd card of my backed up ROM. OK now also it will not boot into recovery. using quickboot or from the bootloader menu. also in bootloader menu it does a little scan and it always says no image found! please can someone help this is driving me nuts!!!!

I'm surprised it took them as long as it did. From reading, it sounds like they really had to work some magic and take a radical approach, hence the time involved. Thank you very much Team Win. Your labor is appreciated by the masses.

Agraben said that he couldn't even work on the exploit until Monday. So it really only took 4 days...Man our devs are f***ing amazing.
