On the hboot screen does it say pvt 1, 2, 3 or 4?

It's not causing this issue though but you still need to know.

Screen shot. Open your device manager with android connected in hboot mode. Press the print screen key on your pc keyboard. Open paint and paste it in. You can trim it down there. Save and upload.

Repeat with desire connected with android running too please


Edit. Please can we continue this discussion in the root guide thread?

Hi, I followed procedure but when trying to run unrevoked reflash I get error access denied. The drivdea seemed to update ok via hboot - device manager in windows now shows my HTC - I'm connecting the phone via charge only + have tried other USB ports. Any ideas what's wrong ? The phone is pvt 1 and I'm on windows 7.

Can you give me the full error message please?

Can you confirm when in HBoot, the device manager name? It should be different from My HTC

HBoot and Android show as 2 different devices in Dev manager, but like superman, never in the same room at the same time

It was Comodo blocking the install. I can now get unrevoked to start but getting `firmware too new`. i`ve uninstalled antivirus from the phone and retried. Sorry to be a newbie but dont understand where to go for the ...`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`... command. How do I enter this ?

EDIT: realised the command was for forcing apps to sd - which I had done previously. Changed command line & rebooted. Still getting firmware too new message. Tried newer version of unrevoked, still same error

EDIT - Now rooted ! -connected desire in disk drive mode & it worked. Thanks to everyone for their help !

If you have the superuser icon, then you are rooted.
S-off is a different procedure: AlphaRev 1.8

^^ provided you have a GSM (Sim card based) desire, not CDMA.

But don't s-off for the hell of it. Only s-off if you have identified a need. This is in teh FAQ linked in the first post of this guide.

Please read it people.

Updated.

Added:

Confirmation of success

  • Go to the app Drawer. If there is an icon called "superuser" Your ROM has root access
  • Turn off the Phone. Hold Volume down and press power. At the HBoot screen, highlight "recovery" using Volume buttons, and press power to select. If you are evntually faced with a Black screen with green menu items, you have a custom recovery.

I can't seem to get into the hboot screen. From power off, volume down, press power and it just comes on to the htc screen, no boot.

What's going on?

Also the phone is unlocked, a month old and running GB.

Thanks, appears to be rooted now. Was a bit heart stopping when unrevoked was doing a reboot loop about 3 times and repeating stuff it did before but seemed fine once Desire booted up normally after that.

Hello ,Thanks a lot for your guide in rooting . HTC Desire is my first android phone in which i would like to do some kind of experiments.

As per your guide I successfully rooted my HTC desire with Amon RA 2.0.1 due to pvt4 40000 device .Also I removed certain pre-installed applications from the ROM.

Now I would like to install a custom ROM based on Gingerbread.

1. Can you please advice me the best & stable Active ROM with good developments ongoing with / without HTC Sense

2.I have the below information of my phone

BRAVO PVT4 SHIP S-ON
HBOOT-0.93.0001
MICROP-051d
TOUCH PANEL-SYNW0101
RADIO-5.11.05.27
Aug 10 2010, 17:52:18

Android Version 2.2 | Baseband Version 32.49.00.32U_5.11.05.27
Kernel Version 2.6.32.15-gd96f2c0 htc-kernel@and18-2#1
Build Number 2.32.415.3 CL283905 release keys
Software number 2.32.415.3
Browser Version WebKit 3.1

3. Do i need to upgrade Radio before using a custom ROM?

4.I don't have any data's in my phone to take backup, Is it possible to revert back to the current ROM from the custom ROM later-on ?


Appreciate your good support in clearing my doubts !

Thanks

Thats the beauty of rooting. The phone's life span is so much longer than if you had say a blackberry or iphone or even an unrooted desire.

Yeah was worried the phone was going to start getting boring over the last few months of the contract. But now with the option of Custom ROMS I feel I could probably keep the phone for another few years Thanks so much for the help!

Thanks for the help,

I have one more doubt

My recovery is on Amon RA 2.0.1 due to pvt4 40000 device (HTC Desire GSM Middle East Version).
So is it advisable to install the ROM's below with Amon RA 2.0.1 / pvt4 40000 device? I would like to try one by one copying the related ROM to SD card directly and run it from recovery

1) CyanogenMOD CM7 7.0.3
2) Gingervillain 2.4
3) Redux v1.2
4) Oxygen 2.1.3

Thanks in advance

yes boot into recovery manually (Amon RA) to flash the roms.

DO NOT use ROM manager. Infact, even if you have erase 20000, do not use rom manager.

Thanks for the help,

I have one more doubt

My recovery is on Amon RA 2.0.1 due to pvt4 40000 device (HTC Desire GSM Middle East Version).
So is it advisable to install the ROM's below with Amon RA 2.0.1 / pvt4 40000 device? I would like to try one by one copying the related ROM to SD card directly and run it from recovery

1) CyanogenMOD CM7 7.0.3
2) Gingervillain 2.4
3) Redux v1.2
4) Oxygen 2.1.3

Thanks in advance
its fione, just make sure you do a backup first

DO NOT use ROM manager. Infact, even if you have erase 20000, do not use rom manager.

Yes I am done with "update-oxygen-2.1.3-signed" . Its working fine as of now. Thanks for the help from such a great forum

Really good guide, thanks. Rooted successfully

I made some notes as I went along of steps I thought were useful that weren't covered:

*Make a gold card
*When downloading HTC Sync, there's two versions, one called 'NAM'. I believe this is the North American Market version. I used the other one.
*Uninstall ATK
*Turn off WiFi
*Enable installation of non-Market apps (although somewhere else I saw it say disable!)
*USB charge only
*Android 1.0 will appear not to install properly on XP, that's ok
*If you forced all apps to SDCARD set "pm setInstallLocation 2"
*Before running unrevoked, make space on your phone

Hiya, thanks for the notes

Some of this is in the rooting FAQ, which this guide suggests is read first. However the non market apps one is a good point., I have never tried to root using unrevoked without that, but it makes sense it could cause trouble

no its not. its that with a pvt40000 device you should use amonRA 2.0.1 which is listed on this guide

if you run the flash package again without connecting the device, select custom and choose amonRA 2.0.1 then connect device you will have it working nice

The only "working" cm with 40,000 is the one that comes with alpharev s-off which unfortunately is very poor. So no, afraid not

It's the size of the data block that is written to the nand chip.

Cwm is designed to work with the 20,000 so its writing half the size of the block for 40,000 so its not possible.

It's like 2 sweets for a penny, but you can't physically buy 1 sweet for half a penny

I'm looking to do this and have a couple of questions.

This is my phone, which I've been told should be OK !!
Code:
BRAVO PVT1 SHIP S-ON 
HBOOT-0.93.0001 MICROP-031d 
TOUCH PANEL-SYNT0101 
RADIO-5.11.05.27 
Aug 10 2010,17:52:10
Does unrevoked wipe any date on phone or SD card ?
If I go with CM7 or GingerVillian will I need S-Off ??

Thanks

You don't need s-off to flash roms, nope. It doesn't wipe any data.

Before you go through the guide, Please read the FAQ linked in the first post

Rooted fine
Bit nervous their !!

I plan to format and repartition my SD Card to use "App2sd", currently it's my GoldCard, will doing this cause me any issues if I stay with my rooted stock Rom ??

Which Rom would you recommend ? I had been thinking about GingerVillian or CM7.. Any issues with GPS ?

Thanks

Well.you need a Rom with init.d support for a2sd+ so you'll need to flash a custom. The.partition itself won't cause issues on rooted stock but it will break the gold card so you'll have to re upload your image

It's needed for recovery purposes.
