Default Guide: How to S-Off, Root and install CWM. On a Wildfire running Froyo 2.2.1

I have just successfully s-offed, rooted and installed CWM on my mates Wildfire and thought it'd be a good idea to outline how I did it.

Revolutionary is still in a beta version and I take no responsibility for any damage caused, but it definitely worked for me.

Step1:

Enable USB debugging mode on your phone by doing the following.

Click settings/applications/development and check the box that says USB debugging.

Download Revolutionary from HERE. Follow the instructions exactly. Extract from the zip file and run Revolutionary.exe and then plug your phone into your pc via the usb cable and follow the onscreen instructions.

You will need to fill in the Revolutionary Application form in order to make Revolutionary work.
Run the Revolutionary utility, that will give you all the information needed to fill in the form.


Please note: Presently this only works for Hboot version 1.01.0001.


To find out what Hboot version your phone has do the following.

Power off the phone.

Hold down the volume down key and at the same time press the power button. This will boot you into your Hboot menu.

Once you are s-off, continue to step 2.

Step2:

Go HERE and download the latest version of Gingerbreak(v1.20.apk)

Follow the installation instructions in the above post exactly. Please note: It has come to my attention that sometimes Gingerbreak does not automatically reboot the phone(thanks to NFSGamer for the info). If this happens. wait a couple of minutes and then manually reboot your phone.

Once done, you should be rooted, you can check this by going into your app drawer and seeing if you have the super user app. If you have, then congrats, your phone is rooted.

Step3:

Installing ClockworkMod so you can make nand backups, flash roms etc etc.

Download, install and run the BusyBox Installer from the market. Once BusyBox has been installed, reboot your phone.

Download and install the Root Toolbox app from the market. Unfortunately, this app is no longer free.

Download the ClockworkMod recovery-clockwork-2.5.0.1-buzz.img file. I have attached it as a zip file at the bottom of this post. Extract the file then place it on the root of your SD card(not inside any folder).

Open Root Toolbox and click the advanced button followed by Erase Recovery, once it's done click the Flash Recovery button.

This should have flashed the CWM recovery to your phone. You should now be able to access recovery to install roms, make nand backups etc etc.

Once you're all done, you can uninstall Gingerbreak.

A list of Wildfire roms are available in this thread over at XDA Developers.

I wonder if it has something to do with the renaming of the file?

What I have done is renamed the file to recovery.img and re-uploaded the zip file. I have also altered the instructions to reflect the change.

Try downloading the new zip file and extract it, then put it on the root of your sd card. Then follow the instructions as before.

Please let me know if that solves the issue.

Enable USB debugging mode on your phone by doing the following.

In that case, I have no idea why it's not working.

Try going through the instructions in my first post again. I have made a few alterations, though I have no idea if that will help you.

Notsure Please Help Me!

Hey,

Yesterday I rooted my HTC Wildfire and installed CyanogenMod 6.1.0 and everything worked fine such as SetCPU, texting, calling, wifi but mobile internet doesn't work. I have restored back to the stock rom and the mobile internet works fine so it isn't anything to do with the phone itself.
If you could help me I would be so grateful!

Thanks,
Jake

May I suggest you ask over at XDA? The rom dev may well be able to help you better than I could.

No worries mate, my pleasure.

I just did my sons Wildfire Yesterday and installed THIS rom. So far he loves it and says the performance is way better than stock.

My mate has also installed the above rom and is also very pleased with it.

That should be fine. Alpharev X does change your Hboot to a patched AlpharevX hboot 6.01.1002 that's how it manages to make your phone s-off.

Just follow the rest of the steps.

Damn.. Has anyone managed to follow the instructions successfully with root toolbox 1.2.7? If so, can you please paste the md5 checksum of the apk ?

I don't have the md5 checksum of the apk, but that's the version I used the very first time I did the procedure.

When I did my sons phone, he purchased the new version of Root Toolbox from the market and that worked fine too.

Default Are you sure it works for hboot xxx.002?

I went to this site:


Revolutionary

But it only shows hboot 1.01.0001 for HTC Wildfire.

HTC Wildfire (buzz) 1.01.0001.

Are you guys sure it works for 1.01.0002 ????


Thanks.

If support for Hboot 1.01.0002 is not there, then it must have been temporarily discontinued for some reason.

I will change the guide to reflect the change.

Thanks for the brilliant tutorial man (:

A couple of things to note for others who are going to try this

1) When I ran the GingerBreak app, it didn't restart the phone. However, just powering it off normally, and powering it on normally again did the job. If the booting process takes longer than usual, this is a good sign that rooting worked. It is normal for first booting after rooting to take a while.
2) An easy way to install GingerBreak is to go to the market, download Linda File Manager, go to Settings->Applications and make sure the box is ticked for the option labelled "Allow installation from non-Market sources", copy the downloaded APK file onto your SD card, get into Linda File Manager, find the file, and single click it. Et viola, the APK should be installing
3) When you run Revolutionary, there is an option to download and install ClockworkMod Recovery. I chose to allow it to do that. It installed the newest version of ClockworkMod Recovery, and I didn't have to install Root Toolbox

Once again, thanks for the brilliant tutorial, and I hope my advice is useful (:

I joined this forum to say thanks, what a great tutorial.
The only problem I had was when running gingerbreak, it took 3 attempts to root. But the best things come to those who wait!!
I am now using CM7, the stable build, very speedy.
Thanks again!

You should definitely backup the contents of your SD card as well as your contacts to your pc.

What Hboot does your phone have?

my hboot is the .1 version

i copied all the contents of the sd card to my pc,

I tried running the apk again with the phone connected to my pc and it said 'not sure what happened please reboot manually and see if you have super user installed'

I took out the battery and tried to turn it on but it wont get past the quietly brilliant screen
edit,i went into the bootloader and rebooted from there and it it turned on with the super user app installed.

Now I want to install a custom rom any recommendations as to what I should install would be appreciated
When i installed revolutionary and the program asked me if i want to download clockwork recovery I did,where should i go from here ?


Also please excuse my English since its not my first language

edit:if im going to need busy box its unavailable in my country do you know where i can get a good apk ?

edit again,i downloaded rom mangager and tried to flash the cyogen rom,foundit on my sd and said press ok to continue to install,but that just brings me to bootloader
any help

There is no need to rename the file as I have already done that for you.

Download it again as per the instructions and extract it. Place it on the root of your SD card.

Did you redownload the file as per my last post?

Once you have the file on the root of your SD card, disconnect your phone from your computer and run the root toolbox programme as per the instructions, it should worke fine.

1) When I ran the GingerBreak app, it didn't restart the phone. However, just powering it off normally, and powering it on normally again did the job. If the booting process takes longer than usual, this is a good sign that rooting worked. It is normal for first booting after rooting to take a while.
2) An easy way to install GingerBreak is to go to the market, download Linda File Manager, go to Settings->Applications and make sure the box is ticked for the option labelled "Allow installation from non-Market sources", copy the downloaded APK file onto your SD card, get into Linda File Manager, find the file, and single click it. Et viola, the APK should be installing
3) When you run Revolutionary, there is an option to download and install ClockworkMod Recovery. I chose to allow it to do that. It installed the newest version of ClockworkMod Recovery, and I didn't have to install Root Toolbox

Once again, thanks for the brilliant tutorial, and I hope my advice is useful (:

As far as I'm aware, you cannot root with that Hboot version.

You would need to downgrade your Hboot version to 1.01.0001. There is a guide on how to do this, but I haven't tried it myself, so don't know what the pitfalls may be. Use at your own risk.

If you successfully do this, please let me know.
