After AT&T locked down bootloaders on their HTC One X, it seemed like a bad omen for potential HTC customers on other carriers that like to tinker around with their devices. Well, if you were worried that about the HTC EVO 4G LTE receiving similar treatment, it looks like Sprint isn’t imposing the same restrictions as AT&T has. According to AndroidCentral, The LTEvo is currently supported by HTCDev’s bootloader unlock tool, and users (if they so choose) can unlock their devices and get some root all up in’nit.

Only problem, when it comes to HTC’s unlock method, that’s about all you can get. To clarify, the bootloader unlock tool wont provide a device “S-Off.” HTC has actually gone through great lengths to ensure that all the “fun stuff” that comes with full root — flashing custom ROMs, kernels, deleting bloatware, custom recoveries, etc. — cannot be tampered with. For those hoping to run custom AOSP ROMs like CyanogenMod and AOKP, well, you will just have to wait until a full root method can be found and exploited. Considering the HTC One X has already gained perm root (S-Off), chances are looking fine good. The kitten and mouse game continues…
