I am attempting my first root but am unsure about a couple of things. Any help would be much appreciated.
I am running Android 2.3.5 and Sense 3.0 with S-ON and HBoot 2.00.0002 (more phone details at the bottom).
Unfortunately my HBoot is not supported by revolutionary so I am going to attempt to install a different RUU with a Goldcard, and then s-off and root with revolutionary. Is this a good approach?
How do I know which RUU should I use? Someone from XDA used the following from shipped ROMs collection - [ROM]Shipped Desire S ROM Collection - xda-developers
Why this one? How do you know what HBoot you'll end up with? I got my phone unbranded from a Hong Kong supplier, so should I use an Asia RUU?
I'm also confused as to what to do once I've created the goldcard. How do you install the RUU from that point? Do I need to extract the .zip from the RUU.exe and rename it to PB99IMG.zip, and put it on the root of the goldcard? I have seen this on Desire forums but not Desire S. And how do I proceed from there?
I only have one MicroSD at the moment. Is it recommended to have another, or can I back this one up to my computer and use that?
Sorry if these are noob questions. I've done lots of searching and reading to get to this point!
