Root HTC Explorer Pico A310E

How To Root HTC Explorer A310E( Pico )?

 Remove pre-installed HTC apps3. How to move apps to SD ( create FAT32 partitions)

HTC Explorer is a great budget android phone. Equipped with a lot of candy features, not to mention the Sense 3.5 UI. If you want to select your first android touch phone and budget tight then,need not consider any other but the explorer itself. Superb first android phone.It is powered by a 600MHz processor ,Adreno 200 GPU, 3.2MP camera (no flash) and many more. So this cute little phone has a little bad side-a low 90MB linternal memory. it has some pre-installed apps that cannot be removed. How to remove them?
Rooting is the only way. Let's see how to root it. Its fast and simple-yet effective.


Rooting makes your warranty void. This is simple guidelines created by experts. Mistake might be present. please be kind enough to report. Wrong doings can brick your phone!!!


Follow these steps carefully---
  • First thing you have to do is install HTC sync on your PC 
It can be downloaded from HTC site. This will help to communicate between PC and Device

  • Next you have to unlock your phone's bootloader 
 ( Go to From Bootloader section select your device. But HTC explorer isnt listed on the site. No need to worry. Just select "All Supported Models", and follow the steps.)

  • Now 'ADD A RECOVERY' - 
That will allow you to install .zip ROMs. You can access to it in the menu android phones have when booting the phone after removing-inserting the battery and pressing "volume down" and "power" buttons simultaneously. (Other phones have different button combinations).

1.  Download  this recovery file -
2.  Extract all the files to any place on your PC like E:/explorer
3.  Run the recovery.bat with phone in fastboot mode (first option in the "3 android menu" ) and connected with USB.

If you have done all this correctly then you have successfully installed the recovery files.You can now install any compatible .zip ROM or app.
  • Lets Root It
 1. Download this file- Superuser
 2. Next place this file in your micro-SD card- any location (doesn't matter)
 3. Go into Recovery Mode -  ( " Volume Down"+"Power" )
 4. install Superuser zip file with the option "install .zip from SD" from the recovery menu.

There you go- Your HTC Explorer Is rooted and is all yours....

Recommended: Install "Link2sd" for moving your apps to SD card. This will help you to move apps to partitioned SD card


  1. its working. thanks

  2. after unlocking bootloader ....
    i cant understand the next step...

  3. exactly which one you don't understand?

  4. i extract the,when i run the .bat file(1kb) suddenly it opens the command prompt and it says press any key to continue,when i press any key nothing happened..plz help!!!!!!!!!!

  5. @riyas

    try like this;

    Before starting: enable USB Debugging!

    1. extract the zip files (Most preferable to C:\HTC)

    2. now remove you phones battery after switching off and load it again

    3. Press and hold volume down+ press power button until display comes

    4. select Fastboot (by volume buttons to navigate and power button to select)

    5. Connect phone via USB to the PC and run recovery.bat file

    6. Next go into recovery mode by restarting the device and pressing volume down and power key at the same time, till it boots into recovery.

    7. then select install zip from SD card.

    there you go. If this process doesn't work, please report.


    The steps after unlocking bootloader are given on above comment. you can also check it.

  7. I want to know,is that recovery.bat file I extract is right.....then I done all the things perfectly...same...when I click recovery.bat file it opens CP...then says press any key to continue....when I press nothing happened in my device r in PC......plz help...where I go wrong....also enabled USB debugging

  8. The file seems to be OK.It worked fine for evry device we checked.
    This is some other issue.

    I can provide an alternate link if you want. But i don't think that will make any difference.

    I will find out what is actually wrong as your'e quite sure that you did every steps precisely as i described..

    If anyone else is also facing such a problem as riyas please be kind enough to comment.

  9. hello admin,I want to know that what actually happen when I run the bat file (any changes in display)

  10. Dear Riyas,

    it will show like;

    C:\HTC>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img sending 'recovery' (4728 KB)... OKAY [ 0.889s] writing 'recovery'....

    finally gives Success and gives the time for completion..

  11. Riyas,

    if you are just rooting it, you dont have to worry the recovery step: it is mainly for installing custom roms.

    But if you wanna install custom roms, might look for TWRP recovery.

    alternate link for Recovery file:

    try this file and check back later

  12. dear admin,very thanks to u to spending ur valuable time with me........I have to know these things,1.without installing recovery can I root?? 2.if yes.Can I able to install recovery when I need custom Rom.......

  13. Its possible, but hasnt tried yet. I think you will be able to root.
    But not 100% guaranteed.

    I'm not so sure whether you can add recovery later.

    Let me check that out.
    Right now i am not at home. So wil take some time.

    Keep in mind that , if things go wrong, you may even have to flash a custon rom.

  14. rooting went well. i had problems with wifi. but nothing serious. everything else is fine.

    thanks a lot.

  15. Dear dheeraj,

    glad to hear that you were able to succesfully root your pico.

    What was that problem with wifi you were talking about?

    Anyway thank you for having faith in us. We are here to help. Feel free to ask.

  16. @Vishnu

    am unable to do these please help:
    3. Go into Recovery Mode - ( " Volume Down"+"Power" )
    4. install Superuser zip file with the option "install .zip from SD" from the recovery menu.

    can we install manually from computer?? please advice.

    Dear Ganesh Chavrasiya,

    did you unlock your htc explorer bootloader from htc dev site?

    If not please unlock your bootloader to enjoy rooting.

    Reply if problem is solved.

  20. Vishnu Nandan8 May 2013 at 14:14

    @ riyas,

    i have checked it and, you have to flash the recovery image to root successfully. It seems htc doesnt have a recovery menu. So flashing recovery is necessary.

    Recovery will enable you to install zip files. It is essential for installing or any other roms.

    Did you unlock your bootloader?
    Disable your antivirus and continue with flashing recovery image.

    Reply if issue stil exist.

    1. Please add me in facebook and help me with rooting my phone I dont want to make any mistake so please add me

  21. My Device Saying Like this:

    C:\htc\A310E Recovery>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    sending 'recovery' (4728 KB)...

    C:\htc\A310E Recovery>pause
    Press any key to continue . . .

  22. @Senthil,

    check whether you have done these.

    1. Unlocked bootloader, disable antivirus.

    2. Enter fastboot mode, run recovery.bat and connect phone via usb.

  23. problem in unlocking bootloader................. plz help....

  24. Dear Ameer,

    Please tell what exactly is your problem while unlocking the bootloader.
    Be more specific about the issue. I am positive that i can help you if you explain the exact issue.

  25. I have successfully rooted my htc explorer.But I have done factory reset after rooting due to which my htc explorer mobile cannot be boot and it get stop on blank htc screen.I cannot do anything on mobile.HELP ME !!!!!!!!!!

  26. Dear ganesh,

    you entered a bootloop.
    You need to flash a rom. Either orginal or any cyanogen roms.

    I have already posted how to install custom rom on htc explorer.

    Check it and ask for any help

  27. Dear ganesh,

    first enter bootloader and try to reset.

    Steps to remove old rom.

    Dowload jaggy rom htc a310e from here-

    1. Boot into recovery
    2. Format System (not wipe option but format option !!!)
    3. Format Data
    4. Format Cache then Format Boot
    5. Wipe Data/Factory reset (1st option in wipe/format menu)
    6. Wipe Dalvik Cache
    Next if you have some wiping utility like Full Wipe 1.5 Ext4 for that by selecting install zip from sd card and installing the zip...
    7. Now install zip from sd card and flash the rom
    8. If any kernel flash it as well
    9. Now reboot (Note don't flash any tweaks like transparent notification except gapps if required)
    10. Now setup your phone
    11. Reboot into recovery
    12. Now go into advanced fixpermissions and then any tweaks you want (Note whether mentioned or not always wipe Dalvik Cache before installing tweak zip).

  28. Everything went good but after booting and sending all apps to sd card using link to sd it still showing low internal memory about 13mb.
    plz give me suggetion, what went wronge.
    thanks in advance.

    1. Link2sd doesnt work if you havent partitioned your sd card.

      If you havent, then undo all the changes ,uninstal link2sd. Then install app2sd to move to sd.

      Hope it works. If you really want link2sd(which i prefer) i can show you how to partition sd.

      First try app2sd. Let me know if it works.

  29. app2sd works for some selected apps only and many apps like facebook, way 2 sms, etc get installed in phone memory only, sir what happened to my htc is after rooting is done using superuser i created partition on sd card using mini tool wizard and after it had been done successfully, i opened link to sd, but after selecting on any app it shows system file and there is no option highlighted as move to sd,.
    Move to sd option is highlighted only for those apps which app2sd itself can move.
    Sir plz suggest me any solution,
    My htc set, due to its intrnl memory issue is no more than a very simple mobile.
    My phone was rooted successfully, by the way.

    1. Tell me while partioning sd card using mini tool, what formats did you use?

  30. Fat32 and also i did change another option from secondary to primary.
    sir actually i had not formatted my mobile before i rooted it, does that make any diffrence.?

    1. Please call me vishnu, that 'sir' creates a weird gap.

      Formatting or not formating before rooting doesnt make any difference.

      Let me check the issue in detail. Please be patient.

    2. I assume that you tried to move apps to sd. Thats not the way you should use link2sd. Before starting, primary part.:FAT32 secondary part. Ext2 right? 1. Open link2sd. Select apps to move. (use multiselect) 2. Hit menu button and press Actions. 3. Select "Create link" from list 4. Tick all the boxes (link file, dalvk cache, library) 5. Continue. And when finished you can see the list of app linked to sd. Reboot. For those apps already moved to sd. You have to move them to internal mem. And do the folowing process.

  31. Actually The same steps i had followed b4 but whenever i press multiselect followed by create link, it shows "no selection" "system file" etc.
    One more thing i would like to share (if it has anything to do with this issue),
    It is my second time i am rooting my device actually first time, after i had rooted my device, i did format my device.
    Due to which it was behaving abnormally like after sometime it started restarting automatically. So i decided to root my device again and facing the following problems that you are just aware of. But except this multiselect problem every thing went well i mean rooting device using superuser then creating partition on sd using minitool wizard, etc.

  32. I am waiting for your reply, plz do comment.

  35. Vishnu I Have Not Rooted HTC Explorer. Before Rooting I Want To Ask You 2 Questions.
    10 I Have HTC Explorer A310b So I Want To Ask Will This Method Work For My HTC. Because It Is Of A310E and I Have A310b.
    2) I Have Visited Many Forums About Rooting But Everywhere Peoples Are Worried About Their Wifi... The Same Problem Dheeraj Explained. Do You Guys Have Wifi Problems.?. Because After Rooting I Think It's Common.
    Please Reply Me Soon. Awating Your Response. Thanks And Sorry For My Low Level English.!

    1. Dear syed,

      here are your answers,

      1. This method will work on a310b. I am positive.

      2. Few users were reporting minor bugs.
      Such as wifi issue, dheeraj was talking about. But its rare and in most scenario it is not much of a fun spoiler. If you wanna root, try it. I am not compeling you. Make sure you have htc sync and do all the steps mentioned exactly as it is said.

  36. hi.. Vishnu plz help me also...

  37. Plz vishnu do comment regarding my problem mentioned above(starting with, ""actually the same steps i had followed b4"")
    i will be thankfull to you.

    i visit this page daily, but i get no answers regarding my problem.

  38. Thank You Very Much Sir... :-)

  39. I have rooted the device but unable to perform the task to install super user. When I select recovery it does not give me option to install from SD card. Can you help?

  40. Adding to above post. After selecting Recovery it just gives me an icon of mobile with a red triangle on top right and does nothing else.. Please helpe

  41. May i know why am i not getting any reply regarding my problem. plz i am daily visiting this blog but yet not getting any reply.
    plz plZ plz i am pissed of my internal memory issue plz help me.

  42. !!!Link2SD Issue!!!

    i don't exactly know why you cant make Link2sd work. Did you try it out with different partitions ( ext2/3 instead of Fat32). try it and check whether it works.

    if that doesn't work flash a kernel that supports ext2,3. partitions for htc explorer.

    first try different partitions,

    are you on any custom kernels?/ ROM?

  43. @ Immu,

    are you talking about snap shots??

    to make a snapshot, just follow the steps; the app/ picture/ any thing which you want to make a snap
    2. press Power button+Home button and it will save a snap of your screen on to images.

  44. !!!!Link2SD!!! issue

    sorry for being late to respond, i was having exams and today only i reached home. My apologies.

    here's a way to partition your device using recovery.

    follow these steps

    remove Link2SD

    1. Boot into recovery
    2. go to advanced
    3. go to partition sd card
    4. select partition size ( choose 1GB)
    5. select 0M in next option
    6. get back to recovery
    7. go to mounts and storage
    8. select mount/sd-ext
    9. go back and reboot

    after that install link2SD, choose partition type as ext2, and reboot your phone

    reply if this worked

  45. !!! Red MEssage Icon issue !!!

    It will be a lot easier if you say your name, as there are lots of comments with anonymous tag having issues.

    i dont fully understand you!,

    how did you root your device without installing super


    1. did you unlock the bootloader
    2. did you add the recovery, as only if you add the recovery you can enter recovery mode. as far i think you haven't yet done the step.-" Add recovery"

    am i correct??

  46. @nakul

    In the recovery mode, is it showing " UNLOCKED" in the top in a pink color highlight.

    or is it saying "" LOCKED"" ?????????

  47. o ya Grt... it works yaar... TenkQ ... tenkz a lot Vishnu..... :-)

  48. n I have a problem regarding the fonts which m installing it doesn't work can u please help me out for this also.... please.... :-(

  49. @ immu,

    use some font installer app for Root users- if you have rooted your device

    i heard about a Font Installer By JRummy ( heard lots of praises and curses about it)

  50. hey can anyone tell me the side effects or demerits of rooting my htc explorer....
    please help

  51. also can i deroot it again

  52. Yes, you can unroot htc explorer. if you want i can show you how.

  53. The main demerit of rooting is that you will lose any warranty you have on the device.

    minority of people have suffered wifi issues, but working fine with me and many others who have rooted.

    other than that no other issues are known for a310e

  54. yeah Vishnu is it ok if we root the HTC explorer....

  55. Dear Immu,

    i won't compel you, but if you have warranty, be aware that once rooted you will lose that. Indeed thats the biggest demerit of rooting. But warranty can be regained if you unroot it.

    But if you already past warranty, you can try to root it, as you can do a variety of task you can never dream of in stock phone.

    the choice is yours to make.....

  56. hey vishnu i have rooted my htc explorer but when i open link2sd it shows ext2,ext3,ext4 and fat32/fat16 as i partitioned my sd card and i choose fat32/fat16 then it shows this--

    Root Access Warning:
    Link2sd could not obtain root access.
    If you have root access make sure respond 'Allow'
    or 'Grant' to the superuser request.

    i have also installed the superuser app but cant figure out the problem..
    help asap!!

  57. @ Abhishek,

    As you have successfully rooted your HTC explorer, this seems to be some other issue.

    uninstall Link2sd and then reinstall and try again.

  58. Here is a tutorial for How to use Link2sd on HTC pico;

  78. hiiiiiiiii vishnu,
    Error shows while unlocking bootloader as below

    Error Code: Invalid Bootloader Token Length.
    Error Reason: The submitted Token appears to be the wrong length and won't work.

  79. where is recovery.bat file

    when i pressed power+volume down it show
    Factory Reset

    i select and Fastboot and press power according instruction...something process go on and again come to the same screen
    Factory Reset

    what to do?

    Pls also reply my above proble about..unlocking bootloader...pls pls pls

  80. Dipesh, This is what you have to do:
    First, download the recovery zip provided. Extract it to any folder. Put your mobile in fastboot mode and open the recovery.bat which will be present in the folder to which you extracted. This concludes the recovery step problem. The problem which you have with fastboot is not exactly a problem. That is the way it has to work :) Any other problems?

  81. @Dipesh The error about Token length is appearing because you aren't marking properly don't mark any area other than the token. I had the same problem because i had selected some free space by the side of the token code :) Enjoy rooting!

  82. Do reply if it worked :)

    We're sorry, but it appears your attempt to unlock the bootloader on this device has failed. This could be caused by several factors including simple errors in the entry of the unlock token, problems with your device, or a lack of manufacturer support for the unlocking process. Please see the specific error code listed below, and try again if necessary.

  107. Hi Vishnu,
    On my second try, I got it! Thanks for replying to all our comments, it's very helpful.
    Now I will try downloading the free2SD app and make extra space on the phone :)

    Also, I have a a310b model, bought in Australia. I can confirm that the a310e recovery file does work. My explorer a310b was rooted by doing this process.

  109. If you don't mind, I can also give some feedback on your instructions because I got confused on the first try.
    First, it would be great to distinguish between connecting the phone to the PC via USB mode(for normal, everyday use) and Recovery mode(by pressing VOL down and POWER, for the behind-the-scenes stuff).

    Second, when unlocking the bootloader in
    After completing Step 13, do not complete step 14 until you have tried running the recovery.bat !
    If you do, you'll probably get a < waiting for device > message and the cmd window will hang without receiving any typed commands. OR you will get a
    FAILED < remote signature verify fail >
    So, before you run recovery.bat put the phone in fastboot mode, and you should see ***UNLOCKED*** at the top of the phone's screen.
    You can go back and do Step 14 to relock the bootloader later.
    When you have relocked the bootloader, you should see ***RELOCKED*** at the top of the screen.
    It seems obvious now, but I blindly did that because your instructions were to 'follow the steps'. I am a noob, but I think there's lots of people like me. :/ Thanks for all your help! :D

  110. @ Aphroid,

    Thank you for your great feedback. Nice knowing that this method will surely work for a310b.

  134. Mr. Vishnu,
    Is there any difference between "CWM recovery" and simply "Recovery"(As per your tutorial you have mentioned "")

  135. Hello everyone; Last night I finished the unlocking process by following steps given on the official website of HTC. Later I came to this blog and followed instructions to root the unlocked device and installed Superuser zip file to device as said. But still I am not able to uninstall any preinstalled apps / games. Also I did not notice any change in my device with regard to factory reset. The device just functions fine as before and all my email accounts, phonebook entries, photographs and personalized settings (wallpaper etc.) are all still in same place. I am sure I saw the bootloader screen with 'unlocked' label at the top of it but doubt that there is something I still missed during the whole procedure, but do not know what is that. Does anyone have any clue or guide me on what to do next for a perfect root.
    Thanks in advance and regards,
    Sachin Bhatt.

  141. @Paresh,

    you have to download recover zip file given in link to your PC. Extract the zip file into any place. The extracted file contains a "Recovery.bat" file.

    Now reboot your phone into fast boot mode.(after removing-inserting the battery and pressing "volume down" and "power" buttons simultaneously, . Select The fast boot option)

    Run the recovery.bat with phone in fastboot mode (first option in the "3 android menu" ) and connected with USB cable to pc.

    The recovery addition process will start.

    what is the meaninig of (first option in the "3 android menu" ) in this suggetons ?
    In the fastboot mode of my phone i have to just run the recovery.bat file which is available at the folder where i have extract the file of recovery zip ?

  143. just enter fastboot ,connected with USB cable and run the recovery.bat file from PC

  144. i am facing problem in "install zip from SD card. its saying that no zip file found... what to do? plz reply

  145. when i run recovery.bat file in fastboot mode nothing happen in my cell just msg available press any key to continue and when i had prress nothing happen, i can't do this what is the problem ?

  146. when I am enter in bootloader mode at the top of the screen "unloacked....' this kind of line is present means i have sucessfully unlock the bootloader ?
    than why the problem is available during next step for root ?

  178. @Kiran,

    hey, is it a red triangle with an exclamation mark??

    when that sign is shown ,try pressing vol up and power button.

  179. Hey Hi Vishnu, I want to know that after rooting my pico will I be able to factory reset my device safely?

  180. @Anmol Varshey,

    If you are trying to perform factory reset on the stock rom which has been rooted, most certainly you will end up with bootloops.

    If you are actually trying to install a custom rom, then install it and later you can do factory reset from recovery.

    1. So after rooting I should not factory reset my device?

      And can pls link some good custom roms and procedure to install it

  181. i am facing problem while typing in cmd. it does not show any list while i type fastboot oem get_identifier_token.
