Default Issues after root

Issues after root:
I Recently rooted my desire using this guide and everything was working well. My phone then started to run slightly slow i decided to restart it. This is when the problem occured...my phone was running 2.3.3 when i rooted it. It is still running 2.3.3 but the graphics seem to have changed back to 2.2. For example the text size has increased and the layout at the bottom of HTC Sense is overlapped. See screen shots-After-restart shows the clock with graphic glitch and the bottom menu overlapping-the notification bar is also slightly bigger with larger text. I'm also missing quite a lot of the stock widgets.-Screen shot after-restart2 is missing the calendar widget and mobile network widget-if i go to add these there simple not on the widget list. I don't really want to have to factory reset because 1. It takes ages to sort everything else out again and 2. i don't know if it'll work correctly seeing i've rooted.

Cheers.

Just wanted to say a huge thanks for this guide to rooting the Desire. After a week or so of total frustration of the lack of memory on my Desire causing app updates to fail and being unable to install anything new I finally rooted it and have installed CyanogenMod. I might try some other mods before settling on anything, but rooting it has breathed new life in to my Desire and saved me a fortune by not having to buy a new phone, not to mention there is nothing new that particular grabs me (some of us don't need a 4.3" plus screen behemoth!).

Still need to play to get the phone how I like it, but at least its usable again, and still loads of room for more apps!

you could have probably gone into setcpu and set mind to 256 and max to 998 then set the governor to userspace (defaults).

Default More issues with desire after root..

So i restored my desire to android 2.3.3 stock rom. I thought it was working ok, I have now discovered however that it can lag a lot, it seems to be crashing quite a lot and the camera freezes a lot. The phone still has the revolutionary boot screen but it is no longer rooted. My hboot version was above 1.2 so i had to use this method: Start by 1. Install drivers: http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.e - Pastebin.com
I;ve tried to do it again but it says s-off is already enable or something along those lines. If i go into recovery i get the phone with an ! next to it. I found a link how to fix this but the links for clorkwordmod didn't work. I want to flash CyanogenMod but i can't access ClockworkMod Recovery. Any ideas would be great.

Thank you.

You're still s-off. This is enabled via the custom hboot you have.

An RUU replaces everything however the newer hboots like you have from alpharev, are write protected. You have replaced recovery and Rom but are still s-off

You need to fastboot flash a recovery. See the adb and fastboot faq in my signature. Skip the adb bit as its not relevant

The Superuser app is a list of applications you have denied or allowed root access to. If you have not run any root apps, the list is blank (black page).

Ok, so I followed the steps. On unrEVOked it does the reboot, it is sitting at 'waiting for root" On the guide it says turn on to Hboot, click on recovery. I do that, it eventually goes to a black screen with an image of a phone and a triangled exclamation mark. What do I do?!

You're booting to hboot? If so, don't. You haven't let unrevoked finish. It will say if complete. That image you are seeing is the default recovery. Once rooted you will see a different one.

your hboot drivers are not installed so it was unable to complete the rooting process and leaves it in hboot

The requested URL /recovery/android-usb-driver.zip was not found on this server.
and http://downloads.unrevoked.com/ is an apache test page for me.

Anyways thanks very much for that SUroot, much appreciated.

I wonder if he is moving host and the DNS servers haven't synced yet?

Well I haven't been there on my phone before so I have no dns cache so what I see is live.

If you've been to unrevoked before, in windows, start, run, cmd, ok.

Type "ipconfig /flushdns"

This is getting frustrating. I followed these instructions and get the same result. It says Android Bootloader Interface in the end.
I did the Revolutionary, because I have a 1.06. When I boot to Hboot, it says Revolutionary at the top. Don't know where I went wrong or missed a step.

1.06 is cdma isn't it?

If you're s-off which you are you need to flash recovery next. Read my adb and fastboot faq. Skip the adb stuff.

..and read it properly. Using my root guide would have saved you loads of time because it tells you unrevoked doesn't work with that hboot

You have a s-off phone not a rooted phone. You need to flash a recovery using fastboot then run the root zip that you download off the revolutionary site.

UNREVOKED AND REVOLUTIONARY DO NOT DO THE SAME THING!

Sorry, if i'm being an a**; but here's the story.

I currently have a PVT 4 S-off desire with Hboot 6.93.1002
I had Amonra 2.01 installed as i had a PVT 4 erase size 40000 desire; before a random restart.
When i booted back to recovery; and tried wiping userdata; it gave me an error like Can't mount : e: Misc missing.
so tried just flashing a rom instead; but to my dismay all data in my memory card was gone.
Now, the LAN Card on my PC does not work; and i always used USB tethering on my phone; for my PC.
And the only backup i had in my PC was Cyanogen 7.1.0; so i put it on memory card and turned my phone on back to normal.
Now, i wanted to flash gapps as well; and i couldn't find the version i wanted; so had to resort to downloading from ROM manager; but as you are aware it does not allow you to download unless you flash clockwork; so i thought as it is a fake flash; no harm doing it; but to my surprise it actually flashed the recovery 5.0.2.0 on my phone.
Was it due to me being s-off? as the last time i had done it; and because of which i was thinking about a fake flash;i was s-on.
There have been no problems with the recovery!
Now, my question is: since i'm a PVT4 erasesize 40,000 should i NOT stick to CWM; and go back to Amon_ra or is it ok with me continuing to use it??

Rom manager doesn't fake flash any more. That cwm will "work" with 40000 but its a bit shite, hence we only recommend 2.5.0.7 or amonra

It should work unless you have 0.93 hboot. It may still work even then. Follow it and see, any problems then ask.

i downloaded amon-2.0.1 followed your instructions , and it worked .
the first rom i installed was .. Cyanogen mod 7 .. Had a few problems , as could not play any music and also could not open market app due to not being able to to ad a account to the phone , installed the miui rom , works perfect.

each rom is different and its important to read they whole front page of the rom as it will give you specifics of what is required for it to work properly and the addons

Hi

I'm planning on rooting in the new year.. learning all I can before i take the plunge!

This comment caught my eye. I was planning on follwing the [Guide]ROOTING HTC android 2.2 or lower with unrEVOked - Windows (updated 11th November 2011)

I have hboot 0.93.001 - is this a problem?

Hi

I'm just researching before I take the plunge and have a couple of questions..

Ensure if you have used a trick to force apps to SD card, you have undone this.

I have used the trick to free up space.. to reverse this do I just need to use the reverce command:

"pm setInstallLocation 0"

Also do I need to then move all apps back to the phone? This would mean unistalling a lot of apps but I think I would lose them any way so it's not an issue.. I just want to do it right.

I'm currently on 2.2 but would like to try a gingerbread ROM.. if I flash to this would I then need to use the revolutionary system rather than the unrevoked?

I understand a gold card is advisiable as I have a Vodafone phone. I plan to buy a low capacity card.. 2gb for this and just keep that as a spare in case it's needed.. my current card I would then wipe and partition to use as the main card for the phone. Is this ok?

Thanks

It actually gives you more options. Unrevoked should work, but if not you can go via the Revolutionary method (like i did)
