How to root HTC Sensation 4G

The following is a step by step guide to root the HTC Sensation 4G from T-Mobile. I've tried it and it worked for me. 

1. S-OFF the Sensation

  • Boot to hboot by pressing volume down and power button at the same time. It will show whether it's S-ON or S-OFF on the first time. If it's S-OFF, go to step 2. It also shows the hboot version. Note it as well.
  • Visit revolutionary.io. Download the revolutionary.exe and get the beta key from the website. Run the application and follow instruction to S-OFF the phone

2. Install ClockworkMod Recovery

  • Download the recovery from here.
  • Copy the PG58IMG file into the root folder of the SD card.
  • Boot to hboot and accept the update when it prompts so.
  • Reboot the phone and delete the PG58IMG file from the SD card.

3. Permanently root the phone

  • Download the root file from here.
  • Copy the zip file from the SD card root folder.
  • Reboot to hboot and choose recovery to start clockworkmod recovery.
  • Backup the room first.
  • Choose "Install zip from sdcard" select "su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip" to install
  • Reboot the phone and it should be rooted
