You can’t keep a good dev down.
Despite having an encrypted bootloader, the EVO 3D has been getting a tremendous amount of dev attention, which has been leading to some rather impressive work like getting temporary root. Case in point, XDA forum member coolbho3000 has managed to wrangle processor overclocking and underclocking out of the device, as well as the Sensation apparently, using a pushed cooked kernel. The method takes a bit more effort than the traditional recovery flashing we’re all used to and thanks to the temporary root it works off of, everything goes back to default with a reboot. Still, given what the developer has to work with, we’re extremely impressed.
If you’re looking to do a bit of electronic finagling and you’ve been dying to start doing some serious modding on your new 3D, check out the video and hit up the source link after the break. Be sure to let us know how it goes in the comments!
