Default Got new htc wildfire s....need some advice pls

hey all, first off just wanted to say hello to everyone on here who sees this. i just got a htc wildfire s(gsm model-unlocked sim, was originally through bell carrier). planning on adding it to a straight talk account...im in need of trying to get the s-off feature and wanting to root this thing, hoping someone out there can help out some or point me in the right direction pls. when i do the power and vol down button this is what all i see:

MARVEL PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-0.90.0000
MICROP-0451
RADIO-7.53.39.03M
Apr 8 2011,17:45:10

sorry in advance if this is in the wrong category and off topics. i tried different tools such as revolutionary(which i was able to get it on my girls htc evo), but its saying i need to have hboot 1.01 or something? i tried the htc dev boot unlock, registered and all, but when i select the wildfire s and it pops up to say yes or no it just hangs and i cant go any further.

You don't need S-OFF to root the WFS :http://androidforums.com/wildfire-s-all-things-root/480954-guide-how-root-wildfire-s-s-finally.html

I've done it, take your time and do a Nandroid backup before starting (that way you can restore your phone to it's original state if you need to). Take your time, read the post carefully and don't do anything until you're sure you understand it. It's really not that difficult.

Next time, how about you read and pay attention to the forums, and maybe you'll see at the top of this forum main, there's an ALL THINGS ROOT section... Start there next time, and don't be so ******ed. You're just taking away people's time that could be otherwise used to help people with REAL issues, not, "I need to root my phone, but I'm too stupid to look at a damn forum page and read it, so I'm just going to ask here"
