I also take no credit for this. After failing multiple times at using zergRush, I turned to a remote rooting service as a last resort. The representative that I worked with performed the following for me and got me rooted. Note that I have only tried this on my phone. I don't have another Rhyme to test with. But, this has given me perm root:
Device(s): Vz & rooted to hell!
-Rhyme (root in progress)
-Moto Droid 3
Carrier: Not Provided

SUCCESS! I did something similar, I'm to lazy to setup ADB and do all the commands at this point. But, I have a rezound and flash the crap out of the bootloader and recover. if you check out the Rezound forum: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1504824 you'll find a great windows tool. DO NOT USE IT TO FLASH the installed recoveries. Only use it for the custom recovery function. I extracted the above recovery renamed it recovery.img and flash it.
Then I flash a custom file, similar to above SU and binaries, and full root was achieved.
I recently Purchased one hTC Rhyme phone.
I updated its 2.3.5 Android with build number: software number: 1.31.707.6 to 4.0.3 with build number: 2.14.401.2 with this RUU: RUU_Bliss_ICS_35_S_HTC_Europe_2.14.401.2_Radio_20. 72.30.0833U_3831.17.00.17_M_release_276226_signed
well, Now I have some questions!
1) I only want to change Farsi (Persian) font but I cann't. They said to me you must root it and so on. I do not Know how to root! Be notice I don't want to install custom Rom. For rooting, Do It need to Unlock boot loader via htcdev.com? What is best Program for root and unroot? how is the way of root? and what is last versin of Supersu apk?
2) I want to know what is recovery.img? Do I must need to install it? Is recovery file defferent with other htc Phone recovery file?
3) How to downgrade to android 2.3.5 if I want once?
4) Does need to s-off? tell me way of s-off

I installed HTC Sync, got the drivers, and deleted HTC Sync. My device can connect to the computer - so I don't think it's a cable or driver issue.
I have USB Debugging enabled, and have allowed Unknown Applications.
After the first two CMD steps: "adb reboot bootloader" and "fastboot flash recover....", I went to bootloader on my phone, and started recovery mode. From there I went to the option with mount, and clicked on the mount system folder option. Then on my computer, back to CMD and finished the remaining commands successfully.
Looks like most people won't need to do that but for some reason the shell mount command wouldn't work from my PC and I had to manually do that from recovery. After that it worked no problem. If anyone else is getting the errors I got, maybe give the above a try.
