The root will also give you the SuperSU app and BusyBox, and the dev responsible has assured users that the process is completely safe to follow, and will not brick your phone.
If you’re running Windows, follow Steps 1 & 2. If you’re on Linux, start at Step 3, and if you own a Mac, begin at Step 4 . Assuming your device is connected:
Step 1: If you’re running Windows, be sure to update drivers using the following driver files (x86 / x64), and then download and extract the Evo4GLTERoot.zip [Download link].
Step 2: After that, double-click the runme.bat file, and when the command prompt runs, simply press Enter to root your device.
Step 3: Linux users needn’t update any drivers, but simply need to unzip the Evo4GLTERoot.zip (Step 1) in the Downloads directory, and then open up a terminal before typing in the following:
cd Downloads/Evo4GLTERootFollowed by:
chmod 755 *
sudo ./adb-linux devices
sh runmelinux.shStep 4: Once again, no drivers are needed, so download and unzip the link in the first step to your Downloads folder. Then, open up a terminal and type in :
cd Downloads/Evo4GLTERootStep 5: When you boot, you’ll notice the SuperSU app in the apps drawer of your rooted device. If you wish to un-root your device for whatever reason, run SuperSU, navigate to Settings > Full Unroot, which will unroot your device completely.
chmod 755 *
