HTC Amaze 4G gains permanent one-click-root [Courtesy of XDA]

Well looky here! The great developers over at XDA have mustered up a simple way to fully root to the new HTC Amaze 4G. Talk about fast! Until today they only had temporary root, but now you can use an easy one-click-root method to permanently root your new Amaze 4G.

You must keep in mind that your bootloader must be unlocked or this new method below will just be another temporary root. Your bootlader must be fully unlocked to achieve permanent root. The Amaze 4G is not yet listed on the site for unlocking bootloaders, but that method will still work for the device. Once unlocked, head to the HTC Amaze 4G XDA thread to gain permanent root, woot! It’s only a matter of time before custom roms and recovery tools are available as well.

I am sure you know this, but this WILL void your factory warranty and TakAndroid will not be held responsible, this post is for your reference only. Once you obtain the HTC drivers and the root method, you’re all set. It’s only a matter of time before custom roms and recovery tools are available as well. Jump past the break for full instructions from XDA.

Stacy Bruce was born and raised in Spokane Washington. He attended the University of Washington to study pre-med only to change his course study a year later to forensic science. Although currently not a doctor or a scientist, some believe he posseses the knowledge of both. He was a resident of San Diego California for ten years, lived beachside and sometimes wonders why the hell he moved back to Spokane. A multi-talented man, Stacy is a fabricator, an artist, a gear head, a tech junkie and at most, the disciple of Casanova. Growing up, he was always enthralled with electronics, gadgets and gizmos. Throughout his life he has had one, if not two, of every cool and new electronic device available. He began his smartphone experience with the original iPhone. After realizing it was more like theirPhone, he decided he wanted the ability to customize, so Stacy moved to the OG Droid and has been a loyal Android fanatic ever since. Moving through all of the top tier Verizon phones, he recently retired his Droid Charge in favor of the Galaxy Nexus, only to wonder what great device Samsung will come out with next. Stacy is a busy new homeowner in where he lives with his beautiful girlfriend and two dogs.

    After going through the HTCDev account login and stuff, the command prompt said that I have to copy the block of text under the screen, but I see no big text or something.

    What should I do?
