We have confirmation that the Revolutionary tool, which spread like a wildfire amongst HTC Android devices users for gaining S-Off, has been updated to 0.4 and now supports a handful of new devices, including the HTC EVO 3D GSM. Earlier we covered a guide on using Revolutionary for gaining S-Off on the EVO 3D, but that was the CDMA version of the phone. Those who have no clue what this Revolutionary tool is, it is a One Click solution to gain S-Off on most HTC devices enabling NAND write access, and is a collaborative effort between the developers of Unrevoked and AlphaRevX. For more information on it, you can head over to our post on the Revolutionary tool when it was just released.
While the CDMA version of the EVO 3D was quickly supported initially, the support for the GSM version of the EVO 3D comes in late, but hey, at least we have it, so no complaining about that. What’s more? Once you’re done with this tool, you will alos have ClockworkMod recovery installed on the device. Yes all of this, all automated. How to go about all of it for your EVO 3D GSM? here’s how.
