Default cannot root wildfire tried 3 methods now

hi, im having a nightmare trying to root my htc wildfire so i can install a custom ROM. Its internal memory is so low that unless i can get this to work its going in the bin as it can barely handle its own basic functions and nothing can update. had to delete most of my apps and its still useless

tried using unrevoked, all worked until i came to reflash it, but unrevoked wouldnt recognise it at all.

so tried an alternative method using the steps on the HTC dev website to unlock the bootloader, which updated successfully and all worked up until i had to send them the identifier token to unlock it, the website just kept saying the token was the wrong length whatever parts of the code i included or didnt include.

so tried going back to unrevoked which now recognised the phone and tells me "device "marvel" unsupported at this time, first time i have heard it referred to a "marvel" its not marketed as that in uk

so tried revolutionary but my device isnt in the list thats supported.

the kernel is 2.6.35.10

stuck now! help please?

When you go to put in your identifier token, make sure there are no spaces.

I had exactly the same problem. CafeKampuchia is right. Paste the token into notepad - at the beginning of every line I found a single space that needed to be deleted. Then copy and past the edited token back into the HTC website.

Maybe you are putting an extra portion you're not supposed to

this could be a possible alternative option for you: To unlock your phone, use simonsimons34's wildfire s tool. But you can only use the unlocking option on the tool, since you have gsm. the other options are for cdma only.
[UTILITY] Simon's Wildfires Utility v2 - xda-developers

Once unlocked, you can find tools to root. or just flash rom recovery boot and then install a custom rom (which includes root)
