reminder: I am S-Off, rooted and was UNLOCKED (I don't even see LOCKED or UNLOCKED on HBOOT menu)

Q1) Should I update via OTA??
Q2) I was looking for a ROM that takes out virgin mobile bloatware - I thought simonsimon had one, but can't find... any other suggestions for vm cdma 510c?

don't flash any rom in cdma.coz it have very limited amount of Custom roms,if u will flash any gsm rom u could be in trouble...

so be carefull while flashing any CDMA device.

Hi, I am looking to root the wifeys Wildfire S (when she lets me ) and I updated it to 2.3.5 and now the HBOOT is showing as 1.08.0000 which I see from reading a couple of threads on here can cause issues.

Is it still an issue or will unlocking the bootloader via HTC dev work no problems?

Im having a really tough time with this.
SuperTool says Ive successfully rooted my phone, but I am having trouble with step 5A4. When I go to type the code in it says fastboot is not recognized.
So I looked here and there for an answer, and when I thought Id found one this is what happened.
It was a barcode, so I downloaded a barcode scanner and rom manager. It scanned, downloaded the file and opened rom manager where a message popped up and said my phone needed to be rooted to use the app.
Then I realized that I probably wasted my time with all the fancy barcode stuff if I hadnt even rooted it correctly. At this point I did the SuperTool thing once more. And again, nothing was working for me.
Ive no clue what to do now...

I dont know exactly what you did but I assume you have rooted your phone with SuperTool. Now root wont work unless a superuser app is installed. Usually SuperTool install Superuser Su, but I prefer this app. Download and install Super SU, then run it at least once.

If you not sure you are rooted, check with Root Checker App.

Now about fastboot, make sure you run the adb.exe, fastboot.exe (double click on it) file before using DOS for "fastboot" command.

Also make sure you running the DOS from lets say C:\Android ( this folder should contain fastboot.exe, adb.exe and AdbWinApi.dll files).

If it still doesn't work, look at the tutorial on how to setup/integrate android-sdk commands into windows system. (but I assume you already should have since you unlocked the phone with HTCDev).

Still you can check it out ADB Guide.

Its better to install CWM using fastboot (I did and it works great). So, ignore other apps.

HBOOT version of 1.08 is not an issue since my HBoot version is 1.08.
I unlocked my bootloader and done rooting with that and havent faced any problems whatsoever.

Since you are a Virgin mobile, I am assuming you have a CDMA phone. Hence this guide isnt for your phone. Check out the Root section , there's a guide especially for you. You should use Goldcard method and should gain S-OFF.

But if you have a GSM phone with virgin, try use the Hboot version of PG76200(use your phone model no and select an hboot you feel close to your phone like country or brand) and definitely not PG76100 cos then you might brick your phone.

Same issue here, can not enter cwm (black screen), software - 2.26.69.1.
But there is one thing i noticed, i think that I can select options in CWM, but i just can't see it, because if i press power on the first option, which I believe is "reboot", phone reboots. When i press volume button and then power, nothing happens. Maybe a little guide how to blindly install root.zip?

The 'blind' method of installing root.zip is contained in post #12 in this thread:

I'm looking into this ClockworkMod Recovery issue. I see that there are some work-arounds but no real solutions.

There is an alternate recovery that's fully functional for GSM/A510e if anyone's interested. Apparently it s pretty nice.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Are you done rooting at 4B ? Or you skipped to 5B ?

When you click recovery does your phone boot back or you see a black screen ?

So I typed Fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.8-marvelc.img” then hit enter. I didn't get any error messages but I still can't get into the bootloader recovery.

Hey guys (with Marvel), try giving trusty old 5.0.2.6 a whirl. We used it for months before 5.0.2.8 came out and everything works.

For some reason when I root with supertool I get ”mount operation not permitted”. This guide seems simple and easy enough but I've had all sorts of problems trying to root my mpcs Marvelc. I was told you can't root with s-on so I followed a guide to achieve s-off. I'm currently unlocked with s-off. What can I do from there? Thanks. :-)

I think one answer might solve both problems. Look at the guide just above step 5. There is a mini-procedure for manually rooting the phone starting with

Hey all,

I've looked everywhere (I thought..) but I really can't find the answer.

I have a Wildfire S, my carrier is Vodafone NL.
My software number is: 2.26.401.3
My kernel version is: 2.6.35.10
My Android version is: 2.3.5

I can't find the fitting RUU from HTCDev.com. So I googled around a bit, and I found two same answers saying if your software number is 2.26.401.3, you should skip the RUU update.

I tried this, and continued the HTCDev.com steps. But the CMD gave me an error which more people had. It seems that you DO need to install the RUU from HTCDev.com to allow to open the bootloader.

I'm pretty sure it's a simple solution though, but it's my first time rooting a Android. hehe

Thanks in advance!

Adr99, welcome to Android Forums

When you boot into hboot do you see *** UNLOCKED ***? If so, then there is no need to update the bootloader, in fact it won't be possible.

If not, find the RUU for generic HTC EU P76100 and it should accept the update since the hboot for A510e is common.

Hope that helps

I tried that last night, and again today. it isn't working either. when I power up the phone in hboot it starts trying to load the zip file and then says

Model ID incorrect!
Update Fail!
Press <POWER> to reboot.

At what step does it give you that error?

Hope that helps
Heya, thanks!

Nope, it says *** LOCKED ***.
I will try the HTC EU P76100 RUU tomorrow.
It really wouldn't matter that I won't pick a Vodafone one? Since my carrier is Vodafone NL..

And thanks for the fast reply and help!

If it says *** LOCKED *** then you don't need to update nor can you. The purpose of the RUU is to update to an unlockable bootloader. That's a great thing since updating the bootloader is the hardest part! So you can now proceed from step 3C.

Hey thanks again man. Now my bootloader is ***UNLOCKED*** (And S-ON)

But the HTC Super Tool doesn't seem to work properly.
It says "adb server outdated. killing..." all the time.

Also it says `daemon not running starting it now` followed by `daemon succesfully started` all the time.. :/

It also didn't install the SU apk, I did install it manually but it said I wasn't rooted..

Edit:
It also says things like:
"Unable to chmod: /system/bin/su" etc..

Did I miss anything? :P

Thanks again!

Check out the mini procedure just above step 5 to root the old manual way. It will do the trick

Just making sure here..:
1. Skip ahead to steps 5A and 5B below to install ClockworkMod Recovery and backup your ROM.

How do I do this? When I run the app, and try to backup the ROM I get a error, correct?
I should just go on from step 2 then?

I'm not sure what app you are talking about. If you mean ClockworkMod's ROM Manager, I would avoid using it unless flashing the recovery manually doesn't work. It's been know to brick a device here and there.

Ah I'm sorry. I installed the ROM Manager indeed.

I should use this one then right?
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.simran.recmanager&feature=search_re sult

Edit:
Never mind, I totally didn't even look at 5A and 5B xD
Thanks! Backing up now!

Edit2:
I can't thank you enough man.
Everything went well.

Now, lets install the CM7.2 ROM, and do this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1490607
No more internal memory popups!

Or should I install CM9:
http://www.htcwildfiresblog.com/2012/06/android-40-ics-for-htc-wildfire-s.html

I don't want to get in trouble afterwards. :P haha

I finally figured out what I was doing wrong and got it rooted. Thanks SO much. only one issue now, instead of freezing Wifi talk or whatever. I uninstalled it. so I keep getting an error pop up saying com.android.kineto stopped suddenly. now I'm trying to figure out how to get it back on there. it's annoying.

Did you do a cwm nandroid backup in step 5? If so, just restore it and start over.

I don't want to get in trouble afterwards. :P haha
If you don't want trouble, I suggest you don't go for CM9 as quite a few things still don't work. CM7.2 however is a stable rom and works perfectly
So I do recommend it

I see, thanks.
But before I install CM7.2, in this topic:
[TUTORIAL]500MB-2GB Internal Storage - xda-developers

The Data2SD .zip is corrupted, and the MediaFire link is dead.
Anyone care to reupload it? :P

Btw, I tried CM9 just to see what it looks like though.
And it's amazing!
[CM9][NIGHTLYS][Last build 31/05/12] Cyanogenmod 9 (almost) nightlys - xda-developers

I havn't seen any problems yet, besides that the camera doesn't work.
Well the build of 24 April had it fixed apperently. But it broke again later.

It seems like they are working on it.

Hi belt and welcome to AF.
Does your phone use a SIM or not?
If yes, you do not need to gain s-off
If not, then you will need s-off but in this case it's easier to create a goldcard than unlocking your phone as many people have had trouble with it

Hi Belt & EGOI,

I hope the method worked for you Belt. Let me know!

Otherwise, in the guide, Cafekampuchia has mentioned that if Supertool doesn't work, there is a way of manually rooting it:
Quote:
Some devices refuse to root using the Supertool. For those phones, do the following mini procedure below. This is the oldest and most manual way to root the Wildfire S. Credits to the guys at XDA.cn for developing the rooting script and user Heritz at xda-developers.com.

Quote:
1. Skip ahead to steps 5A and 5B below to install ClockworkMod Recovery and backup your ROM.
2. Download root.zip and put it on your SD card.
3. Boot into HBOOT and go into Recovery.
4. Select install zip from sd card and choose zip from sd card. Then find the root.zip file downloaded above and install it.
5. Go back to the main menu and reboot the phone.
6. Verify that the SuperUser app is installed and go to Google Play market to update it. If the SuperUser app is not installed, download SuperSU from Google Play store and reboot the phone

I'm trying this but in step 4B when I try "3. Attempt Perm Root" after "1. Prep zergRush" this is what I get:

Loading root script...
pushing BusyBox...
changing permissions...
mount: operation not permitted
Pushing su...
changing permissions...
Pushing superuser.apk
ROOTED

But after that when I enter "reboot" the phone does not reboot and the program does not exit either.

If I reboot manually and try SuperSU it says that 'su' cannot be found.

The HBOOT was unlocked using HTCDev (and it says so if I stay with VolDown+Power).

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Nick
