How To Root The HTC Sensation on Android 2.3 Gingerbread Smartphone

As what we know, HTC Sensation runs on the Gingerbread version of Android, or v2.3. The only bug in rooting this device and the primary conflict between rooting the Sensation and other Gingerbread mobile phones is that the HTC Sync demands to be temporarily got rid of; the directions for uninstalling the HTC Sync can be found on by googling the net and could be done very easy using any application program installer, which is included by default in entirely phones or by downloading any software manager and installing its apk file.

1. First download the Gingerbreak.apk file here.

2. Extract the zip file and save on your computers desktop. This is a precursor for transferring it to your phone.

3. Connect the phone to your computer.

4. Mount SD card as flash drive as you generally do for USB cable file transfers.

5. Copy the downloaded Gingerbread apk file to SD card root.

6. You should have any File Manager (e.g., Astro File Manager) on your phone. If not, download from Market. These are generally free apps.

7. Disconnect your phone from computer and launch File Manager. You'll find in the menu of the phone.

8. Follow the onscreen instructions on File Manager to install APK to your phone from SD card root. You may also use the default application installer software to do this.

9. After installation completes, open the APK.

10. Press ‘root’ button. Simple, isn’t it?

11. The APK work will run for some time. Normally it runs for around ten minutes. Your phone will be rebooted. In case it takes more than ten minutes for auto reboot, please reboot it yourself. Do not panic, this happens a lot of times.

12. Your device is now rooted. Congrats!

13. Be sure that SuperUser app is installed and is running. This is very important for you to enjoy the benefits of rooting.
