The HTC EVO 4G LTE has finally achieved S-OFF, not that it was particularly unfriendly towards developers without it. In any case, this should come as welcome news to those of you in the root community who prefer to maintain full control over all aspects of you device.

Here’s the announcement made by the folks over at Unlimited.io:

LazyPanda is the second release from team Unlimited.IO. It is a tool for gaining (radio) S-OFF on one or more HTC phones and flashing a custom bootloader that supports full write/erase fastboot commands.

LazyPanda does not provide root access, however with S-OFF this is a simple process of flashing superuser from recovery.

LazyPanda comes with NO WARRANTY (express or implied), and NO GUARANTEE OF FITNESS for any particular task. We have made every effort we can to make this a safe process for users however the authors disclaim any liability for damage to your phone or other materials or devices used during this process. The entire risk of running LazyPanda lies with you, the user. By downloading and/or using any software, video file or text from this website you acknowledge and accept that the authors are not liable for any loss, material or otherwise howsoever caused.

Full instructions on gaining S-OFF can be found at the source link below, but just keep in mind that you need to take full responsibility if you do something to mess up your device. That being said, Paul told me last night that the process is extremely easy, so most of you shouldn’t run into any difficulty.

Happy unlocking!

[Unlimited.ioThanks, Jeff!
