Temporary root exploit for the HTC EVO 3D and Sensation courtesy of TEAMWIN. ADB shell must be used to push this binary for root. Its only a start but were getting closer.
UPDATE: Download it HERE!
TEAMWIN announced yesterday they had found the exploit that will break our EVO 3Ds and HTC Sensations free and rooted, without the unlocked bootloader by HTC.
It will be a TEMPORARY Root. This means that using adb you can give yourself temp root until restart, and TEAMWIN is hard at work to get this to advance to be compatible with Titanium Backup, superuser, etc. Also, this way developers may be able to help push it along.
Here are the facts from agrabren from TEAMWIN himself:
1. Users will need adb to make this work.
2. It works on all known HTC EVO 3D versions, and has been verified on a current HTC Sensation.
3. It gives temporary root to adb shells. This is a stepping stone only.
4. We are hard at work for both s-off as well as the ability to use Superuser.apk and busybox
