Table Of Contents
This guide is meant to assist you in unlocking, rooting and ROM’ing your HTC Rezound. The Rezound is part of HTC’s Sensation line of phones and was released on November 14 2011. The Rezound comes with Android 2.3.4 stock with Sense 3.0, and will soon receive an upgrade to Android 4.0.3 with Sense 3.6. Chances are you own a Rezound but some of you may not know what this phone has to offer. The Rezound sports a 4.3 inch 720p(720 x 1280) Super LCD screen, and boasts a whopping 1.5Ghz Snapdragon processor with 1GB of RAM. Add on to that beautiful 8MP(with dual LED Flash) rear facing and 2MP front facing cameras and the ability to record in 1080p at 30fps, and you’ve got a pretty rocking phone.
In order to get to all of the fun things the Rezound has to offer, you’ll need a few tools:
*Note: It is easiest if you install it to a directory like “c:\AndroidSDK” rather than “c:\program files (x86)\AndroidSDK “ or for your Mac/Linux users “/home/<user>/AndroidSDK”
- A passing familiarity with DOS/Command Prompt/Terminal Emulator
- Android SDK (Win/Mac/Linux) : LINK **This install may take a while**
