    Here is how it stands if you have updated to the OTA froyo & you have now decided to try rooting

    FAKE FLASH : FAIL
    recovery doesnt like the signatures

    OLDER PB99IMG.ZIP : FAIL
    main version is older so wont flash

    CHANGE MTD : FAIL??
    pushed flash_image to /data/local although cant flash mtd0.img
    because we dont have access to /dev/mtd/mtd1

    PUSH FILES VIA RECOVERY : FAIL
    devices appears offline to adb

    UNREVOKED : FAIL

    PAULS R6 METHOD : FAIL
    fastboot cant find the device

    GOLDCARD RUU METHOD : FAIL
    Error 140

    This is what a dev over at xda found out not sure why he done it though.

    didn't he do the OTA update to try and get a root?

    the bootloader has changed if i read correctly so none of the rooting methods work :(

    Not sure what he was playing at, he is the dev of open desire.
    Only thing i can think of was perhaps he did it as an experiment to see if it could be cracked.

    Was thinking about rooting aswell :(

    Do you think that this will be permanent....or just a matter of time until they crack the security (or whatever it is).
    Thanks

    Well if it is possible to crack the devs over at xda are the ones to do it, they got more reason to now as well because its one of the devs that are stuck

    Well we all got our fingers crossed that a hack can be found quick for him, there are quite a few others on here never heeded the warnings that now want to root too.

    yea i know, i heeded your warning on the OTA update and have decided against it, going to root instead. want to try out the neophyte 1.4a rom, if i don't like, i can always just flash the official 2.2 froyo rooted rom. :)

    Looks like it could be then, more so as its from the same dev.
    Perhaps he has used another name to signify its based on the official release froyo.

    When you do take the plunge just take your time, treat it like you are installing a new os on your pc

    Yep seen that, upgraded mine to next sense 3.2.
    Got more internal ram left with my usual 24 apps installed than with any other rom installed, 135mb.
    Its now as fast as neophyte in quadrant too.

    oh, that can only be a good thing :)

    i do miss the idea of not having the circle mod battery though lol. looks so good..


    have you found any vanilla roms kicking about on xda? only seem to find the 2.2 sense based ones..

    That battery mod does look good i admit, you can get it as a seperate install for some roms.

    Open desire is a vanilla rom.

    [ROM-FROYO AOSP] OpenDesire v3.0.3 (04/08) - xda-developers

    that sounds very reasonable! might give that a look in :)

    might root to a vanilla android rom, then buy beautiful widgets off the market or something.. bit of original customization :)

    also, check out the new vanilla rom on xda, psychosis 1.0 i think its called. looks good.

    Psychosis 1.0 is a sense based rom m8, although they appear to have used pictures depicting a vanilla version the final give away is with the quadrant score its only 1382.
    With open desire a true vanilla rom quadrant reaches 1551.
