Default Text size

Hi

I'm about to Root my WFS, but wanted to make sure that one of the benefits will be that I'll be able to make the text bigger, especially the inline text within Yahoo Mail for Android, as that's one of the main reasons I'll be doing the Root?

Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure there must be an app out there that needs root permission which will allow you to have bigger text. Try searching in the play store first

Here's one for starters...
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.a0soft.gphone.bfont&hl=en

There are more on Play Store.... However, are you sure you can't simply change font size in the Yahoo App?

How many attempts at the unlock did you make via HTCdev? If something went wrong on the initial attempt then I think you may get this error on following attempts. I can only suggest contacting HTC... sorry it's not much help... maybe someone else with more knowledge may respond soon..

Default I can't pass the 4C step

Hello !

Great job on the guide , thank you !
I can't pass the 4C step , and i was thinking you might gave me a hand !
I gave you he details :

phone Unlocked
Marvel PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
HBOOT - 1.09.0099
MICROP - 0451
RADIO - 7.57.39.10 M

Android 2.3.5
HTC sense v 2.1
Sof. 2.26.161.1
Kernel version 2.6.35.10- g69f19b

I did all the things untill the step 4C , the folder Flash root.zip it is on the SD Card , but after i click on the Recovery the phone vibrate , the white screen with HTC logo appears and it is staying like that . I live it for 15 min and nothing changed ! So basically i can't get the recovery menu screen !
I did 2 the Forcing Apps to install to the SD Card without root , and all went as was explain there , but when i restart the phone , no change , the phone wan't rooted !
I used the Htcsupertol as well , and show me that was rooted with that flashy screen , but as well nothing was changed after restarting the phone !
Any idea about how i can sort these , somehow !?

Thank you !

Borodescud, welcome to Android Forums

Try re-flashing the recovery. If that doesn't work, change the recover: if you had CWM before then try TWRP and vice versa.

Also, sometimes with the SuperTool all you have to do is reboot a second time. Verify that the SuperUser app is installed.

Hope that helps!

Default I'm confused with all this..pls help

First of all accept my apologies for being dumb as I'm new to andriod, I have been playing in blackberry before.

I recently have bought a HTC Wild fire s and found the battery life very bad. Started googling if there is anyway to fix it so I started of battery issue and now stucked here in booting my device ..

Ok I have 2 questions.

1. Does really rooting your device can extend the battery life? (Just rooting and keeping the original ROM)

2. My device details are below. Tell me if I still can root it? Do I have to change Hboot version to 1.08.0099 to get it rooted?

Device: HTC Wildfire S s-on A510e.
HBOOT: 1.09.0099 -S-ON (Bootloader Unlocked though)
Adnriod Version: 2.3.5
Sense Version: 2.1
Software Number: 2.26.707.2
Kernel Version: 2.6.35.10

Welcome to Android and Android Forums

1. IMHO rooting has little to do with battery life. I've played with multiple custom ROMs and none of them seemed to have a significant impact on battery life for me. There are apps in the play store that claim to extend battery life and some require root. I gained little from them and think they are basically snake oil. Others will disagree. You'll have to try for yourself and see.

2. You need to start at step 4 since your bootloader is already unlocked.

....

1. Does really rooting your device can extend the battery life? (Just rooting and keeping the original ROM) ....
Bottom line... Yes, and No. Rooting will only give you more control over your device and applications.services that are chewing up your battery life. As the last post, I have tried numerous so called "Battery Savers" and "Battery Optimizers" but really they do nothing magical, infact, most don't do anything that you can't learn to do manually (Which is always best.)

Sometimes, if it just the battery or memory issue that is the bothersome demon in the works, then rooting, downloading a few simple apps such as link2sd, File Manager and Titanium Backup will help you do most of the necessary functions that will speed up the device, retain battery power and optimize memory/ram. If need be, as with myself, after playing around with a bunch of custom Roms, you could also consider a repacked Stock Rom for your device that will probably have all that done for you.

Are you Marvel or Marvelc ? If you are in the US the ROM I'm using right now would solve all those isues in one go... if on GSM there are also Marvel versions....

Also, I responded to your other post in my tuturial thread, check it out here if you still need help with it...


Good luck!

Hey All, hope somebody can help me.

After typing in (fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.8-marvel.img) into the command prompt it say's something along the lines of: 'fastboot' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Can anyone help me? Thanks a million.

Welcome to Android Forums, BrainDrain42 I'm glad your first experience here was a positive one Make sure you have a good backup of your ROM before making to many changes.

According to your guide, you don't want to help with SDK issues?

What's wrong with providing an answer in the thread the question was asked if you can?

If you installed Clockworkmod recovery then switch to TWRP. There are instructions in the guide just above step 4B. That should dive it and get you going.

Default Phone been fine until...

Back in October I followed the procedure here, it worked perfectly (CM7 20120707) and I have been very happy for 6 months!

Tuesday morning it had a black screen, no lights and no buttons.
Would not soft boot.
Removed battery, rebooted - HTC came up for 20seconds, then black screen.

Booted to FASTBOOT, and cleared caches, no joy.
Cleared Dalvik cache, no joy.
Gave up and did Factory Reset, then cleared all caches, and reset Partition.

Reinstalled CM7, and all looked OK, but its running like a one-legged horse on Valium. Sicker than a runt street dog.

Example : I receive a text, but type to reply, and no text comes up onscreen.
Example : I can receive a phone call ok, but if I try to dial a number, the phone stops for 3 minutes, then the phone app crashes.
Example : The Wifi seems to fail to reconnect after waking up the screen, a reboot does not help, or doing a 'Forget and Reconnect'.
And everything is running very slowly and jerkily all the time.

Is there a step I should do before reinstalling CM7 that will clear things up,

...or...

Do you think a piece of hardware has failed? (RAM or a chip blown?)

Or any other ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Default Hboot error

Hi

I am a newbie to wildfire s rooting, had no problem with my samsung phones and tablets, htc seems to be a whole new level!
Basically, logged onto htcdev and went through the steps, when i entered:
fastboot oem get_identifier_token, I get:
...
(bootloader) [ERR] Command error !!!
OKAY [ 0.000s]
finished. total time: 0.000s

i searched various forums and it seems that the hboot (v0.90.0000) needs updating but where do I get the update?, this guide (which is very good) mentions a RUU file on the htcdev site, but there aren't any listed.
at the boot menu the phone screen has the following on it:
MARVEL PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-0.9.0000
MICROP-0451
RADIO-7.46.35.08
apr 8 2011
the phone display changes to FASTBOOTUSB when the computer is connected, and I can send commands to the phone eg fastboot reboot works, so the driver must be ok?
From reading various forums it appears that hboot V1 is required. Can anyone help, or is it time to give up on trying to root this device?
Thanks
rob

I'd restore the stock ROM and see what happens. If no joy, it's probably a hardware issue

You definitely must update your hboot. The RUUs to do so are there. Make sure you follow the guide closely and look again.

Could you elaborate on step:

1. Perform a full backup your phone’s data
I have found references to Titanium Backup, but this requires having a rooted phone, so that doesn't work yet.

The only backup you can make at this point of time is SMS, pictures, songs, videos, contacts...Just the basic stuff

Guys, im trying to root my phone for 2 days now and i can't seem for everything to go right.

First i download HTC sync and Then it tells me that installing the driver failed, and when i use the bootloader it makes my phone go into the bootloader mode then it disconnects from my PC and wont re-connect in boot mode, then ill get an error message from the program that my phone isnt connected, im trying to get the S-off on.. it's currently S-on..

Sorry if youve been asked this 1,000 times, but trust me, ive researched and tried many ways..

if HTC sync is not installed, you won't be able to root the phone. Have you also installed the SDK tools?
If you are having problem installing on your PC, I think it's more of a PC problem than a phone problem. That's also probably why your phone gets disconnected

This walkthrough worked flawlessly. I may have wasted time trying to flash the RUU when I didn't need to, but my common sense stopped me before I downgraded it.
But so now I can finally uninstall all the Virgin Mobile bloatware that is completely useless on the phone, along with Twitter.
Yeah, I wasn't able to uninstall Twitter because Virgin Mobile is like that.
But because of this, I can delete it.
Thank you for this wonderful thread.

Default Rooting

Hi. So I did all the steps from unlocking the bootloader to flashing clockworkmod. I think all went good, after I installed CWM, rebooted the phone, downloaded and put the root.zip file on the SD card. But when I go into hboot, and try to run Recovery, my phone remains block in the htc white screen, as in the first screen when you power up the phone. White background, and htc written in green. Any ideas how much time should be like this or if it is ok? Thanks..


Update: I managed to boot into recovery, selected, install zip from sd card, but after remains block in the hat screen...and doesn't prompt me to choose the root.zip file.

Hi Empir3, flash this recovery image on your phone. It's CWM5 updated. Then follow the steps from 4A to root your wildfire. I had some problems with rooting too, but I managed to sort things out. If you want a detailed how-to, follow Caro's link on top on this page. Happy rooting.

Finally did it!
Telstra branded Wildfire S model PG 76120 A510b S-on

Unlocked at the HTC dev site

then tried to get root

I had to edit the PG76IMG file to my model number before it would work, I just got this error

At HBOOT screen

Model ID incorrect!
Update Fail!
Press power to reboot.


I edited file after the modelid: name area saved as a zip file, and used that instead.
Everything worked very easily after that

Thanks very much to the OP for all advice and replies here.
