Well, I just rooted my wildfire s ( that's s-on )
First, use the official tool from htc
second, download the updated zip from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1213229
unzip and flash the recovery image to your phone ( fastboot flash recovery recovery.img )
after this, you can install custom roms.
Hey all, I've been lurking here for a couple of days after buying a WF S, trying to figure out how to S-Off and Root and all that. I have successfully S-Off'd my WF S (yay!), but I am unable to root it to start doing the CY7 ROM. I'm stumped. I have been beating my head against a wall for a couple of days now. It shouldn't be this hard.
I have manually gone through many different options that I have found in these forums as well as a lot of them on other forums (XDA included). Nothing works. I have done SuperTool, SuperOneClick, UnlockRoot...and nothing. I've even tried doing many different ways manually, and I cannot get this frikkin' phone to do anything. Since I am new to this, would anyone be so kind as to perhaps think of something I'm missing here?
Please feel free to treat me like the nub I am (according to Android modding anyhow), but don't flame. Just tell me what you think I can be doing and I'll run through it and see if I can get it to work. Thanks in advance!
