    Hi,

    \I've been spending all day trying to root my Vodafone .08 Desire and getting nowhere.

    Basically i've not bothered with a goldcard as I see no branding when its booted up..

    When ever I try I get this error;



    Erasing cache and rebooting in RUU mode...

    erasing 'cache'... OKAY
    ... OKAY

    About to start flash...
    < waiting for device >
    sending 'zip' (138708 KB)... OKAY
    writing 'zip'... INFOadopting the signature contained in this image...
    INFOsignature checking...
    INFOzip header checking...
    INFOzip info parsing...
    INFOchecking model ID...
    INFOchecking custom ID...
    FAILED (remote: 42 custom id check fail)

    Rebooting to bootloader...

    rebooting into bootloader... OKAY

    Step 1 complete - now use the bootloader menu to enter recovery mode.

    To do this, press the power button, wait a few seconds, then use the vol
    and power button to select the RECOVERY option.
    C:\r6-desire-root-alt>step1-windows.bat




    Can anyone suggest where i'm going wrong and its starting to annoy me..

    Many thanks

    Could it possibly be you have the 0.80 boot loader

    Cheers for that, looks like it does need a gold card then according to the first part of those instructions...

    As i've only got one sdcard does that render it useless once i've created it or do you really need two of them to root it?

    Once you make it a goldcard it remains a goldcard so really you only need one.
    There is a goldcard tool in the stickys that is very easy to use.

    Glad you got it sorted out, that rooting tool is excellent, knew it worked with the 0.75 bootloader.
    You have just verified it works with the 0.80 version too
