Default Root HTC Desire with Froyo (2.2)

Hello,

i have downloaded and upgraded my HTC Desire with the Froyo package at this site:

http://liveimage.htc.com/OTA_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.09.405.8-1.21.405.2_release4dua3bcrut4wrv30.zip

Now i want to root my Desire to move apps from ROM to SD.
I have searched a lot of threads but didn't find solutions to this problem,
that i can trust.

Is there any easy solution (with no danger to brick the device) to this problem because i read that only 2.1 can be rooted?

My Bootloader version is 0.9XXXXX

THX for tuts and helps

Mike

There is a way to root according to xda website so take a look here, see if this helps.

Software2Tech.com one click root HTC Desire

This is the easiest I have found. Do not try on 2.1.

In the list of supported devices there is standing that htc desire is not supported for universal androot but in the description there is standing the following:

Universal Android Root or Universal Androot is a android apps that lets you to root your android phone:Nexus One(2.2), HTC Hero(2.2),HTC Desire(2.2), ...

What is the truth of this now?

THX for helps

There is no known way to root Froyo at the moment. The only possibility is to downgrade to Android 2.1 and root that. If you have an SLCD screen this is complicated.

Okay, so I've been reading all the Desire threads but I'm still kinda new to this.

I Have 2.1 and Bootloader v. 0.98 and I'm wondering if I am going to be able to Use the steps in the SLCD HBOOT or if its a whole different process completely,
any help would be BA

You can root Froyo 2.2 with this and you will have no problems at all.

Unrevoked 3.21 can root 2.2, and is quite painless. But be wary of using the Rom Manager application if you do - I've seen a number of threads where people have had problems after doing this, some of them quite recent.

I rooted this way and backup and flash directly using recovery, and have had no problems.

i did yeha, the answer on there is this.

There are 2 reasons for this.

1) Your firmware IS too new. Check your version. The ARA 2.32.415.x is now rootable. Ensure you are using the 3.32 version of Unrevoked if you are on an ARA build - 3.32

For other versions, 3.21 is best - 3.21

2) If you forced all apps to SD card, this is impairing the installation of the superuser app. Go back through the guide and substitute "pm setInstallLocation 2" foir "pm setInstallLocation 0" and try it again


i know its not answer number 2, im not too sure on answer one though.


Phone software information. (incase it helps )

Android version 2.2
baseband Version 32.48.00.23u_5.10.05.30
kernal version- 2.6.32.15-g29e526b
HTC_Kernel@and18-2#1
Build Number: 2.17.61.3 CL274424 Realease-keys
Software number- 2.17.61.3
Browser version - Webkit 3.1


i hope that is enough info.

Ideally I didn't want to do that unless really needed. Will it make a difference?

Possibly.

If you download an application called visionary+ (google it not market) and install it. You can temp root your device (root lost at reboot).

This will allow you to use root backup app such as titanium backup, so you can backup everything so you can restore it later....

iv used visionary but when i temp root my phone just goes slow


Right, here we go, edited this post to say that id backed up my phone using my back up, did a factory reset, now the backup wont restore, not a big deal i guess.
here is my Software information after the reset. ( Copies everything even if its the same )

Android Version
2.2

Baseband Version
32.48.00.32u_5.10.05.30

Kernel Version
2.6.32.15-g29e526b
htc-kernel@and18-2 #1

Build Number
2.17.61.3 CL274424 Release-keys

Software Number
2.17.61.3

Browser Version
Webkit 3.1

Will try temp rooting again, see how that goes.


3rd, maybe 4th Edit now.
Unrevoked seems to be working now. Not sure what changed but, it is.
Thank you all.
