Sad Problems rooting. Missing CID

Android Version: 2.2.2
Network: Virgin UK
Taskiller Used?: No
[Optional]Are You rooted & which Rom: Not rooted
Issue: Missing CID in rooting process
hboot 0.93.0001
bravo pvt1 ship s-off
radio 5.11.05.27
baseband: 32.49.00.32U_5.11.05.27
kernel: 2.6.32.15-gf5a401c htc-kernel@and18-2 #1
build: 2.29.405.14 CL345208 release-keys
software: 2.29.405.14
browser: webkit 3.1

Hello, I'm new here. I'm struggling to root my Desire. First off I tried the latest version 3.32 of Unrevoked (my mistake should've listened to the FAQ). This gave me 'firmware too new....' So tried 3.21 and it gets further but fails with 'missing CID'. I understand CID is tied to SD card and just curious because the SD card came from my previous phone. Could this influence things?

Is the next step to try downgrade to 2.1 as per the FAQ, or is there something else to suggest first?

I'm taking this steady so these may sound like over cautious questions. Step 3 in 'Root Desire Revolutionary' says to read the ADB/Fastboot FAQ and setup. I've done this but the 'adb shell' cmd comes back with 'error: device offline'.

I think this is because the attempt with Unrevoked wrecked my recovery (red triangle at boot) so I can't get into recovery prior to running 'adb shell'. Does this matter in respect to the task I'm following (rooting phone)?

Good news is 'fastboot devices' comes back with a string beginning with 'HT' which I guess proves I have a USB phone connection.

Am I ok to continue the guide?

You can't use adb commands in recovery until after you have a recovery that supports it. The HTC one you have now does not support adb. This means you can only run adb commands whilst android is running.

Depends. If Youre going to flash a custom Rom, you don't even need to flash.this....

Yay phone successfully rooted and recovery installed using Revolutionary method. Not sure why Revoked failed so badly.

Now off to research Nandroid backup and find some ROMs to test

Thanks for your help - great forum here.

Hello Gurus,
I went through the FAQs and it says
"UnrEVOked only works for 2.2 however. Any 2.3.3 GSM ROM must use revolutionary. Also, any hboot 1.02 or higher needs to use revolutionary too. Please see Mattb81's Guide:"
But it seems I still have to use revolutionary using Mattb81's guid for Hboot lower tha 1.XX?
The 2nd thing is my erase size is 40000 which the FAQ recommends Amon Ra for..
Being a newbie trying to take plunge into rooting getting a bit confused as to which one to use...
Thanks in advance for help...

If you have erase size 40,000 you want Amon Ra 2.0.1 (or 4EXT, which has come out since). This is the recovery which you want the the rooting tool to install, whether you use unrevoked or revolutionary to do it.

If you have a 0.xx hboot you can use unrevoked. You *can* use revolutionary instead with 0.93 hboot if you prefer.
