Default How to root HTC Wildfire s

Hey I have a wildfire s but the memory capabilities are very poor, I want to root it so I can move all my apps to the sd card and hopefully free up some internal memory. Can anyone tell me the best way to do this

I followed the guide written by Simonsimon34, it worked fine for me.

That depends on which model of Wildfire S you have. There are two types, CDMA and GSM. Simonsimon34's guide is for CDMA/MarcelC.

See this guide to determine which rooting procedure is right for your phone:

I have a little problem with my phone after rooting it. Everything works great, but I noticed that now, after rooting it, I have to hold the power button longer for the shut down menu to appear. And when the phone is off, I only have to press the power button for less than a second, and the phone turns on, which a little annoying. It would be better if I had to hold it pressed for at least 1 second before it powers on. Is there a way to fix this? Thank you.

As far as I know, there is no way around it....
