Ok, try to install the SuperUser app and some other app that requires root. I like to use ES File Explorer with Root explorer enabled and system mountable (under settings).

You must install SuperUser first, reboot, install ES File Explorer and enable root explorer. You can also try any other app from Android Market that requires root.

BTW, the pictures you sent before are unclear and I couldn't see if you got any errors.

here it is what i saw after selecting option 1 in HTC Super Tool
after clicking 1 these messages came up (i only could copy part of it):
adb server is out of date. killing...
*daemon started successfully*
Pushing zergRush...
Press any key to continue
*daemon started successfully*
changing permissions...
Press any key to continue
adb server is out of date. killing...
*daemon started successfully*
adb server is out of date. killing...
*daemon started successfully*

Here are some of the messages i noted when selecting option 3 (the 1st two kept repeating themselves alot):
adb server is out of date. killing...
*daemon started successfully*
unable to chmod system/bin/su: No such file directory

Try rooting using Mithusan's guide instead of the HTC SuperTool:

[GUIDE] How to Root the Wildfire S

Note: this will only work if your phone's bootloader is successfully unlocked (you see ***_UNLOCKED_*** on your bootloader screen) or you happen to have an S-ON phone.

What all are you wanting to back up?

* Phone contacts can be backed up and restored under People.
* Gmail contacts and email can be re-synced.
* Email can be re-synced if you're using IMAP instead of POP. Otherwise I'm not sure.
* Texts can be backed up with Go SMS Pro.
* I think there are apps that can backup and restore user apps without root, but I'm not sure about that. I've never done it. I just reload my apps, but I only use about 10 anyway.

Hope that helps.

Thumbs up Hell yeah!

First off: THANK YOU!

I've been seaching for more than 2+ months, daily(!) to get my HTC WildFire S(!) rooted and finally got the CM-mod installed.

I finally got my HTC WildFire S bootloader unlocked, rooted, CM7 installed (and working after reboot, the first install of CM7 got me in a "boot-loop" (removing the battery and rebooting fixed this!)...


WINNING! haha

If you stick with a stock ROM, yes.

But a FOTA update will at least unroot your phone (not such a big deal since it's easy to root the device), and may also update the bootloader to a locked one, which is more of a pain. That's what happened to people who updated to 2.13.401.3, and it took HTC dev a few weeks to unlock the bootloader, so people lost root for that time and had to redo the whole procedure

Re-flashing a stock ROM will unroot the phone, and is fairly easy. Are you asking in case you need warranty service? If so, please read the following excerpt from this post:

Somebody always asks if there is a way to revert to the stock ROM and regain S-ON or a locked bootloader to get warranty service in case of a hardware problem with the phone. Think about it: if a physical component of your phone fails (like the touchscreen), in all likelihood you will be unable to revert even if such a procedure existed! You’d spend less time getting a part-time job at McDonalds flipping burgers to buy yourself a new phone.
A user in Great Brittan has confirmed the loss of warranty, even for a hardware problem (power button stopped working) because the phone was unlocked and rooted.

If warranty is the bottom line for you, then don't unlock or S-OFF and root your phone.

Make sure you do a factory reset and wipe all cache including dalvik before flashing the new ROM. If you didn't, go back into Recovery and do so now.

If that doesn't work, try fixing permissions in Recovery.

Alright, this may not be so much WFS related, & I apologise if I have posted this in the wrong forum
I have the Telstra WFS A510b. Ive unlocked my bootloader and it now runs the european ROM. When i go to use HTC supertool v3, itll pop up for a few seconds, then open IE and go to the creators homepage. so when IE opens supertool.exe automatically shuts down. Ive done almost everything i can think of to try and open supertool, but no success. Ive visited the creators website, clicked on the links, ive even gone to donate but it showed an error on the google checkout. Is there something im doing wrong or what?! Id like to root my fone with supertool, but if i cant get it to open i may just have to root it the other way. Thanks for any help in advance guys, i really appreciate it!!

I don't understand why opening IE closes the Supertool. When I rooted my phone, I just closed the browser (Firefox in my case) and kept going.

Try rooting using a different root method: [GUIDE] How to Root the Wildfire S

Now that your bootloader is unlocked, this method should work fine.

I don't know why it's returning that error as that bootloader was made to receive the unlocktoken.

Is HTC Sync running in the background? It can cause problems. Make sure you open task manager and kill it if you see it.

BTW, since you have a CDMA phone, you can root by gaining S-OFF with a goldcard. Unlocking the bootloader isn't necessary. You have a MarvelC and this guide has everything for your phone:

I don't backup my phone so I won't be much help. But I can say this:

1) Your SMS can be backed up through Messaging or Go SMS Pro.

2) Your apps and app data cannot be backed up without root. You'll have to reinstall them.

3) Your SD card will not be erased, though you should back it up manually as a precaution.

4) Contact information, calendar and gmail can be synced.

5) Backing up email depends upon your email provider/app.


Or do it all in one step by purchasing MyBackup Pro, though it won't backup app and data unless your phone is rooted.

Google "backup phone without root" for more tips and info.

Hope that helps at least a little bit.

1. Please confirm that you are seeing ***_UNLOCKED_*** in bootloader.

2. Are you getting errors on the screen when you run the HTC Supertool?

3. Did you install the Superuser app per step 5a? If this isn't installed, the phone won't know its rooted.

4. Have you tried an alternate root method, such as [GUIDE] How to Root the Wildfire S?

I'm ***UNLOCKED*** and have HBOOT-1.09.0099 and S-ON.
When I press 1 & 3, the cmd screen flashes and says 'ROOTED', but the app Wifi Tether says No Root!
I don't know what i'm doing wrong, but maybe some kind man could tell me
PS: I also tried using the second prep mode, which doesn't seem to do anything.

Correct me if I'm wrong CafeKampuchia but I think that before you use any apps for rooted phones, make sure you install the Supertool app so that it can grant 'superuser' to the apps that require root.

Caro332 is correct, hence:

Quote:
5. I'm finally rooted! Now what?
5A. Install the Superuser app by ChainsDD This app allows other apps to access root when necessary. After it's installed, reboot the phone. Whenever you install and run an app that requires root, you'll get a dialog asking if you want SuperUser to grant permission to that app.

When you unlocked your bootloader, you uploaded your phones IMEI# to get the unlock img file, so they know that your phone was unlocked even if you relock or revert the bootloader. You can always try reverting your bootloader and seeing if they'll overlook it. The best way I know to do it is update to 2.13.401.3 which flashes an unlockable bootloader. Maybe HTC will forget that you unlocked your phone.

Well, finally my GPS worked (after following this guide http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1182735 )
Not the accuracy I expected but it's WORKING
Thanks for the reply
If something went wrong with my phone can HTC repair it for me even if I'm off warranty ?
And will it cost me much ?

1. Yes, I'm seeing this on bootloader

2. Yes, method 1 and 2 of prepare are not working (when I do 3. I can see "Are you root" when it tries to put fils in /system/ on my phone)

3. Yes and it doesn't work anymore: it isn't asking me for root

4. I tried it. I had CID incorrect, so i made a GoldCard. Now I have Main Version is older.

Thank you anyway!

EDIT: Awwww! I managed to flash the recovery using fastboot commands on PC!

EDIT2: I executed root.zip, superuser app appeared in my app drawer... Omfg, it works. Root Uninstaller asked for root login. I'm soooo happy

For those who are trying the second method: in recovery you are trying to flash, the PG76IMG.zip (You would prefere downloading clockworkmod instead of the one in second thread) that you are trying to flash, there is a recovery.img. Put it in folder created with htcdev (where there is fastboot.exe... Then, execute cmd, go into that folder (cd \android) and then do fastboot flash recovery recovery.img. When done, on your phone, go into bootloader, then recovery. That's it! You can apply the root.zip!

I installed the CWM recovery and then installed the root.zip thingy which gave me root permission.

As mentioned by CafeKampuchia in the 1st page, install the Superuser app by ChainsDD. After that, you should be able to use any app that requires root
