I am currently using HTC Sensation 4G from T-Mobile and those 14 native apps by T-mobile is really useless for me. I wanted to remove all those apps but i dont have enough premission to remove(uninstall) those native T-mobile apps from my device. To remove those native apps i need to Root my Android 2.3 Device.

If you are also willing to Root Your Sensation, follow this guide.

Disclaimer: ROOTING THE HTC SENSATION WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. Enbeeone3 Forums disclaims all liability for any harm that may befall your device, including, but not limited to, bricked phones, voided manufacturer warranties, exploding batteries, etc.
Required Files

Download the following files and save them to your computer:
Gaining S-OFF Using Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool

Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool is your best friend when it comes to unlocking the bootloader (S-OFF) and recovery of your device. Once installed on your phone, it will allow you to root it easily, explore various ROMs, and freely install custom kernels. Follow the steps below to enable S-OFF on your HTC Sensation.

  • You may need to temporarily deactivate your antivirus and/or firewall software, as some security programs (e.g., Norton Antivirus) flag the Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool as malware, even if it actually isn’t.
  • Take note of your device’s serial number. Pull out your phone’s battery and take a look at the label inside the battery compartment. Your handset’s serial number should be printed there, usually beside the label “S/N”.
  • Find out the HBOOT version on your handset. With your phone turned off, press the Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously for a few seconds. The device will boot to a white screen showing device information, including the HBOOT version. Take note of the HBOOT version number and reboot your phone after doing so.
  • Go to the Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool website and download the appropriate package for your platform (i.e., Linux or Windows). As soon as the package starts downloading, you will be redirected to a “Beta Key” form. Fill in the form with your device’s serial number and HBOOT version number. Press the “Generate Key” button to get your beta key. Take note of this beta key. You will be needing it when you run the Revolutionary tool.
  • By this time, the package file for the Revolutionary tool should have finished downloading. Extract the files into one folder on your computer’s hard drive.
  • Enable “USB Debugging” from the Settings » Applications » Development screen on your handset.
  • Connect the HTC Sensation to your computer via USB cable. When asked for a connection type, choose “HTC Sync” and just ignore warning messages saying your phone could not find HTC Sync.
  • Launch the Revolutionary tool (revolutionary.exe). A command prompt window will open and will ask you for the beta key.
  • Type or copy-and-paste the beta key for Revolutionary into the command prompt window. The beta key is case-sensitive. Press Enter to allow the tool to proceed.
  • Wait a little bit for Revolutionary to enable S-OFF and unlock the rewritable NAND on your handset.


After the process is complete, you will also have ClockworkMod Recovery installed on your phone. However, in some instances, the recovery image does not get installed. If this is the case, manually install ClockworkMod Recovery as described in the next section. Otherwise, skip to the next section on rooting your HTC Sensation permanently.
Installing ClockworkMod Recovery 4 on Your HTC Sensation

Before you can permanently root your HTC Sensation, you need first to install ClockworkMod Recovery 4 on it. Usually, ClockworkMod Recovery also gets installed after you have successfully activated S-OFF on your device. But in some cases, it doesn’t.
ClockworkMod Recovery is a custom recovery for Android devices that enables you to execute several advanced recovery, restoration, installation, and maintenance operations that you can’t do using the stock recovery. It also allows you to flash unsigned files based on .zip packages and flash custom ROMs very easily.
To install ClockworkMod Recovery 4 on your HTC Sensation, follow these steps:

  • Download ClockworkMod Recovery from the link provided above.
  • Copy the PG58IMG file to the root of your SD card (i.e., the main folder of your SD card).
  • Turn off the phone and reboot into the bootloader/HBOOT screen. To do that, disable the fast boot option first in Settings > Applications > Fast boot, then press and hold the Volume Down and Power buttons at the same time.
  • Once in bootloader mode, the phone will automatically detect the new file and will ask you if you wish to start the update. Press the Volume Up button to accept.
  • Once the file is flashed, simply reboot your phone.
  • As soon as the device has rebooted, delete the file from the SD card or rename it to something else, otherwise each time you attempt to go into bootloader, the phone will prompt you to install that file.


Rooting HTC Sensation Permanently

  • Copy "su-2.3.6.3-ef-signed.zip" file to your SD Card.
  • Turn off your device and reboot into ClockworkMod Recovery. (Disable the fast boot option first in settings then press and hold Volume down button while pressing Power at the same time. You will be in the bootloader mode where you can select Recovery to enter ClockworkMod Recovery.)
    Posted Image
  • While in Recovery, create an android backup by navigating to Backup & Restore > backup. ( This might take 3-6 mins)
  • If you have created a backup already, select “Install zip from sdcard” option, then select “Choose zip from sdcard”.
  • Select su-2.3.6.3-ef-signed.zip from the list. Then choose “Yes – install su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip” to install it.
  • Once installation is complete, reboot your handset.

You have now fully rooted your HTC Sensation. Your next possible step is to install a custom ROM and get rid of the stock ROM. There are various ROMs from many developers – one of the popular and trusted ones is no other than the CyanogenMod 7. Go ahead and take your HTC Sensation for a spin. You are now in full control of it.

You should now have ClockworkMod Recovery 4 on your HTC Sensation. Now, you’re ready to permanently root your HTC Sensation.
I will let you know the result later in this thread about my rooting result :)

Remove T-Mobile Apps in Your HTC Sensation
Download and install
Nonsense Bloatware Removal: http://www.mediafire.com/?ndukxxd7fug6y44
Fre3Vo:http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1150006

This is a simple BAT file and I'm sure there are others flying around out there (common sense - DUH). Other files I've seen, however, strip all of the Sense out as well and I, for one, like Sense. This BAT will remove all non-htc sense related bloatware; i.e. the (I consider it to be) crappy Nova game, the annoying TMobile self-help, etc. Like its name, I did not pull any HTC Sense apps. If you want to remove those, again, search the web - they're out there.

Well, technically, it's 2 BAT files. DISABLE_BLOAT.BAT will disable all the following items. If, for some forsaken reason, you want these total pieces of garbage back on your system, I've also included an enable file. ENABLE_BLOAT.BAT will turn them back on.

Here's what this BAT removes (don't worry, use the ENABLE bat to turn it back on if you want to):
  • Widget: ProTips
  • Game: Nova HD
  • Game: Teeter
  • App: LogMeIn
  • App: Lookout
  • App: Tmobile TV (MobiTV or whatever they call it)
  • App: Qik Tmobile Video Chat (get Tang or Fring instead)
  • App: Slacker Radio (meh...)
  • App: Telenav (trialware, use Google Nav instead or buy a real GPS)
  • App: TMobile Mobile Backup (never use it)
  • App: Tmobile "AppPack" (You can get the same junk by clicking on TMobile in the Market)
  • App: Tmobile "SelfHelp" (The annoying app that hijacks your calls to 611 or the 877 # from your phone)
  • App: TMobile MyAccount / MyDevice
What's being kept is everything from HTC Sense. No exceptions.

Reminder: no one at Simply Android, including me, or at XDA / TeamWin, etc, is responsible if you brick your phone.

The process is pretty simple:

1. Download & extract to recieve 2 BAT files. DISABLE_BLOAT will do just that, while ENABLE_BLOAT will turn it back on.

2. Place the BAT files in the same directory as ADB.

3. Gain temp root with Fre3vo (steps are in the XDA link).

4. Go to the folder with ADB and run the BAT file.

You're done!
