look at 1) The rooting faq in the "all about rooting" sticky thread and 2) the s-off rooting android 2.3 guide linked in the same thread.

Its all there

Go to the root subforum and look at the "all about rooting" sticky thread (red link in my sig). You'll find links to a number of FAQs and guides there. In particular read the rooting FAQ and the guide to rooting using revolutionary (because you are already on 2.3.3 you need to use revolutionary to root).

Read them as many times as you need until they become clear.

Once you've done this, people in the root forum will be happy to answer any remaining questions.

It's case-sensitive. Try lower case

there is no such thing as a best custom rom. its all subjective and each rom has its own instructions on the thread on how to flash them.
please go to HTC Desire - xda-developers and there are loads there for you to look at

I have spent the last day trying to root my Desire.
Am stuck at the moment when my PC needs to find my phone with fastroot.
I've used revolutionary and managed to get S-Off.
I've got fastboot.exe and have added the path line in the advanced system settings...
When plugged in normally i can find my phone through adb devices in command prompt.
When i start my phone and go into Fastboot its shows "fastboot usb" (in red, is this right?) when i connect usb cable. But when i try to find devices through fastboot devices in command prompt it doesn't list annything.
I have seen this problem around the web on different places but I havn't found a solution yet.
Oh and USB debugging is turned on...

Please help.

Am working on Win7 x64.
Phone running
Android 2.3.3

HBOOT screen show's the following at the moment.

-Revolutionary-
BRAVO PVT 1 SHIP S-OFF
HBOOT_6.93.1002
MICROP-031d
TOUCH PANEL-SYNT0101
RADIO-5.17.05.23

Did you install any drivers? How does the device show up in device manager whilst connected on the fastboot screen? Any symbols?

Just wondering why you needed to use fastboot? I'm fully rooted and haven't had to touch it so far.

Fastboot is used for flashing recovery, re enabling sd functionality, wiping partitions, flashing hboot, radio etc.

Hi, new here and this seemed an appropriate thread to post in (as opposed to posting a new thread).

I have an HTC Desire running Android 2.2.2 and am looking into rooting, having read the very helpful guides I am wondering whether it is easier to root from 2.2.2 or should I update to 2.3 and then do it?

Probably easiest to root your current ROM. That way you can back up your user data with Titanium. Updating to the official gingerbread release would wipe all your data.
