    Hi all,

    Been looking around xda, villain and here, and i was looking for a start to finish, step by step, no knowledge necessary guide to fully rooting and overclocking the desire HD, a lot of the dev's and boffins on these sites are talented but offer little help to the person who hasn't got a clue :eek: SO i thought it would be nice for a start to finish guide to be put up so some ppl who have just got their phone and would like it to be released to it's full potential can do so without having to pull their hair out if they got stuck. I know thee are guides of sorts but not for the everyday noob, a noob guide was the first one i ever read (watched actually) on unlockr.com, which although now dated, was a superb example of a step by step guide.

    Not everyone knows about adb, so telling people to "push this here" and "pull that over here to the system blah blah blah" they're just going to cack in their pants and run for the hills, not knowing how cool it is to have their device rooted with the potential to use custom rom's and overclock and stuff.

    Could this be done please?

    Sorry if I sound like a moooOOOoody, but it's nice to see a step by step guide which works for everyone. :D

    Well you're the one with a Desire HD running overclocked (according to your profile) so why don't YOU write it?

    I notice you didn't offer any links yourself.....;)

    Because i haven't got a clue kid, I don't use adb or the like, if you want to know what i did then fine, i'm always helping people out, no need to point your little fingers is there?

    [GUIDE] How to PermaRoot your Desire HD - xda-developers

    Go here and download the files, the instructions are inside, However!

    You won't be able to use other governors without adding additional scripts which i don't know how to do, like conservative, interactive or similar. So your speed will either be 1440 or 245, 1459 - 245 nothing inbetween, so it's running either very quick or very slow. Not the best for battery life.

    Also this doesn't allow you to use adb apparently as it doesn't include s-off.

    Like i said i don't have a clue, so if someone does, then it would be nice to see a complete write up from start to finish. IF you just want to have a moan then don't bother posting, I'm only asking for something which would be beneficial to all who have a dhd.
