HTC Rezound is a newly launched phone and its users can smile this New Year as they can now root their smartphone. Here we have covered the detail procedure on how to easily root your HTC Rezound smartphone. Rooting helps to further customize the phone and also use the applications that require root access. This rooting process is only applicable for those HTC Rezound users running on Gingerbread 2.3.4 firmware version. However it is to be noted that rooting will void the warranty as the boot loader unlock policy doesn’t allow users to root the phone.

The rooting procedure is not recommended for basic users but is for advanced users and is only applicable to HTC Rezound smartphones that are network unlocked. Do not apply it in any other device as it might not be reversible and may harm the device by blocking it.
