Cry Please help me root my HTC wildfire

Hi all,
I have HTC Wildfire.
I am breaking my head for past two days trying all the ways possible on web to
root my device but failed.
I always get Error: is your firmware too new?

I have HBOOT 1.01.0002 and Android 2.2.1
things i tried
ran unrevoked 3 with charging only & disk drive
with sd card in & removed
factory reset a dozen times.
formatted SD card too!

then I tried Revolutionary which said it doesn't support HBOOT 1.01.0002.

I really want to root my phone (without downgrading the OS if possible)
Please save me.
Thanks a lot

Ahh the old firmware too new problem, i remember when i got that.
Anyways...
All it means is that you a currently running an unsupported version of android (Froyo) when using unrEVOked - to fix you you have to downgrade your OS to Android 2.1 (Eclair)

Follow this link >here< its the process i used to root, very straight-forward once you've read it properly

There are prerequisites that you must attain before finally using unrEVOked
1) Gold-card your sd card using the goldcard tool
2) Downgrade your hboot using the software in the package called 'buzzdowngrade tool'
3) Obtain S-OFF using Revolutionary
4) Use an RUU to install Android 2.1
5) Use unrEVOked to root
