    I take it you've turned off/uninstalled all phone management software (HTC Sync)?

    Also, you could try running with the Ubuntu Live CD?

    i installed all drivers out of the file...

    You'll only need to run the .sh file, I don't think you'll need to use the others.

    I'm afraid I can't help much, but you can post in the xda thread, and if that doest work, there is a link to the devs irc channel in which you should get a quick answer. Link should be in the first post of that thread

    You sure you have nothing else that should be un installed mate. Had a similar problem first time i tried, turned out i had left my Asus Transformer software on, removed it and it worked next time.

    I used this last night and worked first time, it's the hack-ace command file, not the .sh or the xph file.
    Also did you uninstall the htc software, not just close it?
    Is USB debugging on?
    Are you right clicking the file and running as admin, just in case?

    no htc software was showing up on my pc, debugging was on, and yes ran with andmin rights

    ive just thought i may have left avg on, so i will run again tonight with avg turned off, im just worried about keep trying it and it bricking my phone, every time ive tried ive had to pop the battery out to restsart my phone..

    Also when i unplug my phone when it stalls it auto jumps through the remaining stages and says finished..

    Once again i will try again tonight

    Ah, well you are right, but I used it on a Mac so it was the .sh for me. Totally forgot about the cmd.

    Command file for windows, .sh for osx and Linux

    Try it using the Ubuntu Live CD.

    I've not ran the CD for ages, but I think it's just a case of booting your PC with the CD (you'll need to burn it yourself) in the drive, but there should be instructions on how to install included in the download.

    tried using Ubuntu, it gets stuck at the same point:mad:

    I might just give up on rooting

    Having looked at the manual (the FAQ section at the end), this could be SD Card related? Have you tried with another SD Card?

    I've never ran the Hack Kit before so my knowledge of how it works is somewhat limited, apologies.

    If that doesn't work, there are other methods to rooting, but it involves a little more leg work.

    I successfully used this on my DHD.
    Disabled antivirus, firewall etc
    Uninstalled HTC sync
    Make sure you have HTC drivers installed
    USB Debugging ON
    Run .sh as admin

    The first time I used this I had same kind of problems, but then realised I did'nt have HTC drivers installed.
    Hope this helps :)

    it still loads up with the 3 network thing? its put a busybox app on my phone?
    rom manager?
    super user?
    com outfit7.talkin?

    You've not actually installed a ROM yet, all you've done is root, S-OFF and install Clockwork Mod which gives you the ability to install custom ROMs.

    There's a thread here which contains some info about what you might hear now you're rooted and a couple of guides to installing some of the more popular ROMs CM7 & RcMix.

    Those apps you've mentioned, ROM Manager you need for downloading clockwork (you have it already), busybox is a root management tool, super user is an app which controls what other apps are allowed root access. Outfit7 appears to be a Talking Tom the Cat app and the rovioka is Angry Birds?? How they've ended up there, I don't know.

    so whats my next step?

    Firstly, get Titanium Backup... it's well worth paying for the full version, but the free version does pretty much everything you want.

    Then... do you like the phones software the way it is or do you fancy a change? I highly recomend CyanogemMod 7 (CM7) as a ROM for your phone... it is vanilla android, so not like the Sense ROM that came on the phone... very customisable and ultra slick!

    Choose a ROM. :p

    Do you want something close to the software on there at the moment, or do you want to go for something totally different?

    Take a look at what's available here: Desire HD Android Development - xda-developers

    Let me know what you like the look of and I can see about writing an install guide for you (won't be tonight though, sorry).

    That's what I said!! ;)

    You'll be happy to know though that the hard part (altough it's not so hard any more, given the Hack kit) is over... flashing ROM's is relatively straight forward! :D
