    Hey well i decided to root my HTC Dream.
    i am using the guide that "Rooting: A quick guide"
    i am following all the steps, and downloaded all the stuff needed.
    So far i have done only the first 3 task for step 1.
    I keep getting "Model ID incorrect! Update Fail!" when i try to install the bootloader.
    Can someone help me, before i give up, and pay someone to do it for me!!!

    Where are you located and where did you get the phone as the rooting process is different for Rogers Users than it is for US/UK ones....

    Can you please be a little more specific so i can help you on the points you don't understand or do you not understand any of the process?

    the instructions state:
    1. Place update.zip on SD card.
    2. fastboot boot recovery.img
    3 [optional]. make a backup with nandroid
    3. apply update. (LET IT FINISH, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING UNTIL YOUR PHONE IS COMPLETELY IDLE. DO NOT TOUCH AFTER FIRST REBOOT (WHEN CHIP APPEARS) UNLESS YOU LIKE A BRICK. :))
    4. HOME+BACK to reboot out of recovery mode.
    5. power off phone, hold camera button and power to boot into fastboot again
    6. fastboot flash boot boot.img
    7. fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    8. fastboot reboot

    ok so you don't understand fastboot... see rooting a rogers phone requires using a tool called "fastboot" the process is done via cmd or terminal from your pc to your phone.... the process is simple but much different than rooting the American/UK phone... go here: HTC - Support - Flashing your Android Dev Phone with a Factory System Image you can download fastboot and hopefully understand it a little better...
