If you ever used One Click Root, then you know how easy it is to root your devices. A member from XDA Developers, lyriquidperfection, has given HTC users around the world an awesome utility that they can use to root or unroot stock ROM devices. Keep in mind that this option only works for fully stock devices, with stock ROM (not modified by the carrier) and with stock Recovery. Also, try to remember that the Insecure Boot.img method works for just about any device, but it requires S-OFF and your Insecure Boot.img must have the “ro.secure” setting set to “0” and not use a patched adbd binary.

How it Works?

The process of rooting your HTC device is fairly simple, just like all other One Click programs. Before proceeding to use the program, remember to turn on USB Debugging. Here are the steps for unrooting your HTC device with Quick Root:


  1. Connect your HTC device via USB cable
  2. Open HTC Quick Root
  3. Select the option to reboot the device when the rooting process is complete
  4. Click Root Device (or Unroot, depending on what you want to do)

This is all you have to do! It’s one of the simplest ways to root or unroot a smartphone, although the other methods work just as well, this program was created specifically for HTC users. Also, it gives you other features that were usually done only in Recovery Mode, such as Clear Dalvik Cache or Battery Stats. Here is a full list of features given by the developer:

  • Root Using Insecure ‘Boot.img’ (S-OFF Only) or Universal Exploit. (S-ON / S-OFF)
  • Option to Flash ‘HBOOT’ Image after Rooting, even if your device is ‘S-ON’!
  • Verify MD5 Checksum of ‘HBOOT’ Image after backing up and after flashing.
  • Unroot Device by Patching ‘adbd’ binary as Insecure.
  • Root Tools to Clear Battery Stats and Dalvik Cache.
  • Reboot device to any mode after Rooting.
  • Execute Reboot commands independently.
  • Thorough Error Checking and Stable ADB Framework implementation.
  • Includes BusyBox v1.20.2 and SuperSU v0.96

Give this app a try and see how easy it is to root your stock HTC device, or to unroot it if you ever want to revert back to the original ROM for warranty purposes.
