Cool How To Root HTC Wildfire S A510C CDMA Virgin Mobile!

First, I'd like to thank Chlinkchlink, Heritz (from XDA), and Superoneclick application for your help and original Root.zip File! Wouldn't work without this!

I Finally found the perfect method to root this Virgin Mobile Device with S-On (Or OFF)! I Spent 3 days on my customers phone at my computer shop figuring a good method without read/write or freeze errors. I Simply EXTRACTED the SUPERUSER and ROOT files from SUPERONECLICK application and PASTED those files into the ROOT.ZIP File provided. Result? The ULTIMATE ROOT.ZIP MODIFICATION! Below are the methods....

Forget to mention... "I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK/BREAK/THROUGH YOUR PHONE OUT THE WINDOW/ Etc!" That can only happen if you fail to backup your device or fail to read my steps and HTC Dev. Thanks and HAPPY ROOTING!

Follow The HTC Dev method to unlock your bootloader. Sorry. Due to rules I am too new to submit links.

Then install clockworkmod recovery like you would through adb on your computer. Download from attachment. make sure you Extract it!

Place the clockworkrecovery image inside your Android Adb folder. Place your phone in bootloader usb mode and plug it into the computer. Open command prompt and browse to the folder where you placed the recovery
example how:
cd c:/

cd Android

Now Flash this bad recovery!
example on cmd prompt:

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.8-marvelc.img

Now you have clockworkmod recovery!

Now hit Recovery on your cell...

Get My Modified Root.Zip File on link attached.

Now mount USB Storage and make sure your phone is still plugged in to computer.

Copy my modified Root.zip file you downloaded into the root of your MicroSD Card.

Unmount USB and flash the Root.zip file.

Reboot phone and you are now rooted! Donate / Like Me/ And good comments if I helped you!!!

Default last step?

Hoping someone can help me out. All has worked great up until this point:

"Unmount USB and flash the Root.zip file "

I'm not sure what to do here. I have placed the root.zip file in the root directory (stand alone zip file on the sd card, not extracted). Do I use ClockworkMod Recovery --> Install zip from sdcard --> choose zip from sdcard --> root.zip or do I go to the bootloader menu and flash it somehow.

Much appreciated

OK. Never mind on the last question. Figured out what I needed to do from the xda-developer website.

It all works great. Thank you!

I cant seem to be able to get into the clockwork recovery menu. After flashing the mod I click recovery and my phone just restarts. Boot loader is unlocked. What am I doing wrong?

Joshua, welcome to Android Forums

You aren't doing anything wrong. ClockworkMod isn't working right with some of the newer stock ROMs. For now try the hints in this thread t see if you can get it going:

Like Cafe said, some devices have that problem. If your device come with the white HTC screen, at the moment there is no solution...Just have to wait.

Has anyone gotten this to work with ROM 3.01.652.1 710RD? I believe this is the latest update on VirginMobile. I've tried many a thing and neither has worked so far. Just found this thread and I'm wondering if it works before I get stuck with a white screen like the user a few posts above.

Thanks,
Nick

Wow is Clockwork Recovery just a massive garbage program? All it does is constantly crash or won't load when I'm trying to use it. There is another way better program but it won't do your root.zip as it doesn't see it.

So irritating how everyone sets everything up for CWM and it's garbage.

Team Win is the program just remembered it. Works every time but it won't see the damm Root.zip.

This procedure worked flawlessly for me on a Virgin Mobile Wildfire S (HTC_A510c). Thank you so much!!!

Now how do I get rid of the annoying "virgin mobile" splash screen every time the phone is turned on/off? I found a guide to do this here but it requires the phone to be S-OFF (mine is S-ON after rooting).

Any help would be much appreciated.... please keep in mind that this is my first time rooting an android device.
