Thumbs up How to root the HTC Wildfire S (S-on) Marvelc/Marvel Compiled Procedure January 2013

NOTE: THIS GUIDE IS A COMPILATION OF SEVERAL STEPS FROM VARIOUS FORUMS AND DEVELOPER WEBSITES. IT IS A WORKING PROCEDURE AS OF JANUARY 2013 AND IS FOR ROOTING THE HTC WILDFIRE S (Marvelc/Marvel) WITH ANDROID VERSION 2.3.3/2.3.4/2.3.5 ONLY. WETHER IT WILL WORK WITH OTHER SYSTEMS NOT YET DETERMINED.

Thanks to ALL who have shared their knowledge of the issues surrounding rooting the HTC Wildfire S on PHANDROID and elsewhere, not least our very own CafeKampuchia whose thread was where I started. I have taken the liberty of using, changing, updating and/or editing certain steps from other users on PHANDROID and other sites purely because I don't want to spend two days writting this thread.

As I was/am a complete novice with the world of rooting I will start by saying I had a nightmare trying to make sense of all the countless comments, threads and technical jargen that is all over the net regarding the issues of rooting the wfs. I met with all kinds of problems, mostly because a lot of information was simply not explained to the novice, but more directed at developer stage guys. I will attempt to explain things a little bit better where necessary, but in all reality, you have to make sure you UNDERSTAND the instructions here and follow the steps AS THEY ARE WRITTEN. This is no "fast-fix", there is NO ONE-CLICK ROOTING SOFTWARE out there that is currently able to root ALL the wildfire s, to date I have tried thirteen methods, none worked. So, I can only advise you find some time, a few hours at least, and set your mind on having the patience to do this right.


STEP 1.

Before we even get into the phone rooting business, you will need to do some time consuming stuff first...

Before you begin, make sure that your computer can properly recognize the phone:

You will need SDK tools for Android, Java runtime, and HTC Sync installed on your Windows computer. The latest edition of the SDK is fine, but once you have set it up you should update through the SDK manager and install the platform 2.3.3

1. You only need to install HTC Sync for the drivers that come with it. But the program sometimes causes conflicts, so during this procedure, make sure it is not running. Open Task Manager in Windows and kill it. If you don’t use HTC Sync, you may also open Control Panel and uninstall it without uninstalling the drivers.
I am not here to help with the SDK etc. You need to have that all figured out and running before you proceed further.

2. Learn to HBOOT. You will need to know how to HBOOT the phone as it may be necessary to do this several times during the procedure. The simply method is this:
a) Power down the phone.
b) Once the phone is OFF, remove the battery and replace. Then holding down the volume DOWN button press the POWER button at the same time. You can release once the phone powers up.
c) You'll now be in the 'BOOTLOADER' screen and will see HBOOT in blue highlight and lower down you should see FASTBOOT, ECOVERY etc. You can move up or down in the menu screen using the Volume up/down key and select an item using the Power button on your phone.
Making sure you have not highlighted anything other than Fastboot you can now press the power button which will start up your phone as normal.

*** FASTBOOT USB <------ This is what you need to be on your phone when flashing recoveries. When in HBOOT, highlight FASTBOOT, then press power button. Once in FASTBOOT it is here that you attach your USB cable to the PC. Do not try to flash the recoveries in ANY OTHER STATUS OR IT WILL FAIL. ******

You will know you are in FASTBOOT as you see a screen with the pink ***UNLOCKED*** bar at the top, followed by device details. Below that you should see FASTBOOT highlighted in RED and lower down, BOOTLOADER highlighted in blue followed by REBOOT etc. Now if you attach your USB to the PC FASTBOOT should now become FASTBOOT USB after a few seconds.

Remember this procedure.

STEP 2.

NOW DO THIS...

Unlock your bootloader at htcdev.com
Go to htcdev.com and follow the procedure there to unlock your bootloader. This is the step that can void your warranty! But is necessary in order to proceeed.

You need your bootloader to state ***UNLOCKED*** at the top of the HBOOT SCREEN (If it is NOT unlocked you cannot proceed to root.)

STEP 3.

NOTE:Download the file root_assistant.zip Found at end of post.) Create a new folder that is easy to navigate to on your PC and the unzip the contents of the zip directly into your new folder. Name the folder 'Phone Root' or something.

NOW DO A BACKUP OF YOUR PHONE ... RIGHT NOW!

a) Before you begin UNMOUNT YOUR SD CARD ( Menu>>Settings>>SD & Storage>>Unmount SD Card .) Then you need to set your phone in debugging mode: menu>>settings>>applications>>developement>> check the box for debug mode.
Also you need to ensure 'fastboot' is checked: Menu>>settings>>power>>fastboot ...check the box...
Then finally, your 'connect to pc' needs to be set on "Charge Only" - menu>>settings>>connect to pc>>charge only <--- VERY IMPORTANT

b) Connect your phone via the USB to the PC, wait about 30 seconds.

c) Go to the ALL In One Kit folder located inside your new folder, open and launch the tool kit interface by clicking the root_assistant.exe icon in the folder.

d)Allow the program to start and DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PHONE UNTIL DIRECTED.

**** MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN FASTBOOT USB BEFORE PROCEEDING ****

e) Once started, on the tool kit interface look on the RIGHT hand side and select the TWRP for your phone, either GSM or CMDA or the 'OWN RECOVERY' (I Recommended TWRP v2.2.2.0 which is already set as "own Recovery" and works with both CDMA and GSM)

STEP 4.

*NOTE* Please do not be tempted to mess with other functions of the tool not mentioned here, EVEN IF YOUR FLASH FAILED. Try another recovery image or root SU until you get one that works.

a) With the correct TWRP select and ignoring EVERYTHING else, click the "FLASH RECOVERY" buttom underneath your selection on the Tool Kit interface. A command prompt window opens and does it's stuff...

Wait a while while the operation completes....

The recovery will now be installed unless you get errors, in which case you've done something wrong. Start again and read more carefully.

b) You can press any key on the command prompt to close it. If your phone has not automatically rebooted then reboot it yourself as normal.

IF you get stuck on the HTC screen after reboot, give at least 5 minutes for the recovery to start. It doesn't always work on first boot, so be patient. If after 10 minutes the phone still hasn't booted, do a HBOOT >> Fastboot >> Recovery ... hopefully it will work this time, again be patient. If no worrkky this time after waiting 10 minutes, do a HBOOT and start over using a different recovery. More details of changing recoveries in the tool kit can be found on README files in various locations in the Root Assistant directory.

c)Now repeat Step 1. a) + b)

STEP 5.

a) Once reconnected to the PC go back to the Root Assistant interface and look for the "Etras" window (Bottom Right Corner.) Select 'Perm Root' from the options and the click the "Run" button below the window.

b) Another command prompt will open and do it's magic and in no more than 30 seconds you should see "Successful" or something. You are now Rooted! Disconnect the Device from your PC. You can now use the tool kit interface to reboot the system or into recovery before you disconnect your USB. I suggest using the Reboot to Recovery choice at this point to check that TWRP installed correctly. NOTE: As with all new installtions when first flashed, it may take longer for the device to start up than normal.) Once twrp has started, check it out and remember you utilize the Backup before making any further changes!

STEP 6.

Check everything out. If you have not already check out recovery as noted above, or you are no longer connected via usb to the pc, do the following:
Remember how to HBOOT? If not look above and remind yourself, then Reboot the phone into HBOOT.

Once in HBOOT allow a few seconds for the PG image to load then once it's settled select "Recovery" in the menu using the volume up/down key and select using the power button. The phone should now load the recovery that you've just flashed.It may take a minute or two so be patient.

Once you see the recovery window open (Nice dark background with light blue tabs?) you can utilize the recovery however you chose and use the interface to install different ROMS etc.

To check for root first find out if the SU installed on the device! It will be in your applications if successful, if it is NOT there, you need to reboot, check again, and if still not there, TRY ANOTHER SU!

WELL DONE.

Check out the stock roms on my download page if you are uncertain of what to expect or simply want to try things out.


NOTE: I downloaded Link2sd from google play (Which needs Super User access) as a test to see if the phone actually rooted, and the prompt came up asking for super user access, which I granted, and the app connected without issue.

I hope all this helps at least some of you who may have experienced similar issues with rooting you HTC Wildfire S

If it helps don't forget to click THANKS!

Try to boot into recovery. If that works, you can go to this site and repair it:
[Guide] Re-flash stock ROM (RUU) after bricking a rooted device
If you can't boot into recovery, your phone is bricked and you will have the send it to the repair centre

I have not tried this method but as far as I know, it is not possible to root unless your are unlocked (Maybe it's changed as I have rooted my phone quite a while ago but I doubt it). I would suggest you unlock it, nothing should happen.

Gryffon if being unlocked is one of the requirements to root as per your post, please update your guide

Firstly, for some reason I wasn't following my own post! I'm sorry for that, I have no excuse, other than I have this procedure elsewhere and was following there.

I have updated the procedure above as for some reason it did not include the all imortant "UNLOCK YOUR BOOTLOADER" remark. Of course, your device needs to have the bootloader "UNLOCKED" before you try rooting (S-ON /S-OFF) is no longer a concern if you follow the procedure at htcdev:

Unlock your bootloader at htcdev.com
The next step is to head over to htcdev.com and follow the procedure there to unlock your bootloader. This is the step that can void your warranty!

I will try to help anyone else with issues one to one... (I'm now subscribed to my own threads lol *Sigh* - )
thanks

OK, I'm taking it that as it stands you cannot get into recovery, right? You do still have the capability of flashing from the ALL In One Kit?
If so, then all is well and we'll have you sorted in just a few minutes...
If you can let me know your status RIGHT NOW then I can help you RIGHT NOW... I'll be here for several more hours...

In the meantime, don't FLASH ANYTHING ELSE... I just need you to be able to go to bootloader and be able to connect to PC in "Charge Only Mode." I'm not sure WHY you lfashed the cwm recovery image, that is not in the tuturial and I found the cwm recoveries to be a crap on my device... in the tuturial I mention using the TWRP as I KNOW THIS WORKS better, even consider getting the latest vervison from http://teamw.in/project/twrp2 and overiting the "recovery.img" file located in the All In One Tool Kit directory >>Data>>Recoveries>> simply copy and paste and overwrite the file. Then when flashing the recovery using the kit interface, select "OWN RECOVERY" , then flash... I'll gurantee it works, although, I preffered the TWRP v2.2.1 as it has less bugs and is very stable.

I think I'll add more detail and update my tuturial...

Nothing can be completely 'Safe' when messing with you Androids inners, but it is 98% successful as far as I know. But, it WILL void your warranty, although it IS possible to get the phone back to a locked state if need be.

Ok, hold on there... I have a new recovery image for the all in one kit, and and a couple of other things... I'll add them here in a bit...
If you phone is Unlocked, if you get into HBOOT with fastboot enabled, if you can still FLASH using the tool kit, then there is no reason I can see that... 1) You should have an issue flashing TWRP and it working. 2) That you can't then flash the root.zip from THAT recovery...

But we could try doing it in reverse usng the kit, try flashing the root.zip BEFORE flashing the recovery?

Some of the newer phones have that problem and for a long time there was no solution for it. But don't panic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They found a way.
Follow this link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1997465&page=4
Flash the recovery that Operator 3 has provided in the post No 32

The only thing is that you will not be able to flash any CM roms. Only stock based roms...

Okay thank you. I think I could be on my third or fourth tutorial now. None of them seem to be working for me so I must be doing something wrong! Although I'm at the stage where my phone is ***UNLOCKED***

I know how that feels! But I can't guarantee it will work on all wfs devices. It worked for me however, and others, but some folk have not been so lucky. I have redone the tutorial other the last day or so and repacked the Tool Kit with extra stuff and more detailed README's in various folders...

I think one of the most common problems with rooting for some folk is 'Patience' and following each step EXACTLY, but I think (Like myself) it gets so boring having to reboot, hboot, flash over and over again, folk get either confused or just plain bored lol.

But I'm around everyday on and off and will help where I can..

I can't attach the file here on the post because of size limits
But I'm going to add a link to download my file direct in just a minute..
Get root assistant here..
good luck!

If your phone is unlocked, I would say the most difficult part is over
For me the scariest part of the whole thing was unlocking the phone. Rooting it (If Supertool works for you) is the easiest thing

Well with HTCdev unlocking the phone is pretty easy if you follow simply instruction, but tes, it is scary, especially when it is the first step and you've read horror stories all over the net

What is WEEELLLLY SCARY though is when you do all the stuff (Thinking you've done everything right but worried sick that you haven't,) and then just get stuck on a White HTC screen.... remember, that happened to me for DAYYYYSSSS. Looking back, and knowing what I know now, I think what a ninkumpoop I was.... I just wish I could help people out more so they don't have to lose their hair and break out in hives followed by sedation at the local hospital, and a visit from a shrink <---- that was me! haha!

I updated the tutorial and rewrote the instructions, more detail, and hope it doesn't seem to confusing, also added a few readmes in different places that explains things that I didn't know when starting out, so at least people have a better chance than I did at avoiding most common issues.

Phew! I'm pleased mate, let me know whether you chose to go with a custom rom, repacked stock rom, or if you are simply staying with rooted device.
And good luck...

I guess I'm gonna stay with rooted device ..Now I don't have any issue with internal memory, I like the stock rom and already removed unwanted apps so I'm good now. My main concern was increasing battery life somehow but I guess there is no way out. Thanks anyway..

The only way to reduce power consumption is to limit apps that are running and do not need to be, which are many on your stock. Also, turning off WiFi and gps When not needed will save a lot. Battery life depends on How You run/use the wildfire s

Where did root-assistant.zip come from? I'd like to root my phone but I'm a bit worried about the software used to do so.

Thanks,

The root assistant comes from a collection of tried and trusted sources. As long as you follow the instructions it will work without issue. Many people have used the software and gained root on their phones. If you need further help, PM me.

Please help me..
First question before we get into this... have you got the recovery on your phone, and can you boot to recovery ? If you don't know, try HBOOT >> FASTBOOT >> RECOVERY and check.
If you can get into recovery then all is well... simply remove your SD card and connect it via PC, locate the SuperSU.zip and copy to the main root of the SD card. Replace the SD card into your device.
Start phone by holding the volume key in 'UP' position' while pressing the 'Power' button. This should get you into HBOOT. Select FASTBOOT >> RECOVERY. After a few seconds you will see the TWRP REcovery Screen. In recovery you need to select 'Install from SD' or 'Install from Zip' and then locate and select the SuperSU.zip. Click 'Install'. You should see 'Install Successful' after a short time. THis being the case, the device is rooted, or should be.
If you can't get into recovery or failed to install it, we will go from there. I'm here everyday, so WILL respond at some stage if not immediately.

STEP 3.

NOTEownload the file root_assistant.zip Found at end of post.) Create a new folder that is easy to navigate to on your PC and the unzip the contents of the zip directly into your new folder. Name the folder 'Phone Root' or something.

NOW DO A BACKUP OF YOUR PHONE ... RIGHT NOW!

a) Before you begin UNMOUNT YOUR SD CARD ( Menu>>Settings>>SD & Storage>>Unmount SD Card .) Then you need to set your phone in debugging mode: menu>>settings>>applications>>developement>> check the box for debug mode.
Also you need to ensure 'fastboot' is checked: Menu>>settings>>power>>fastboot ...check the box...
Then finally, your 'connect to pc' needs to be set on "Charge Only" - menu>>settings>>connect to pc>>charge only <--- VERY IMPORTANT

b) Connect your phone via the USB to the PC, wait about 30 seconds.

c) Go to the ALL In One Kit folder located inside your new folder, open and launch the tool kit interface by clicking the root_assistant.exe icon in the folder.

d)Allow the program to start and DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PHONE UNTIL DIRECTED.

**** MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN FASTBOOT USB BEFORE PROCEEDING ****

e) Once started, on the tool kit interface look on the RIGHT hand side and select the TWRP for your phone, either GSM or CMDA or the 'OWN RECOVERY' (I Recommended TWRP v2.2.2.0 which is already set as "own Recovery" and works with both CDMA and GSM)


What do you mean by this line ''**** MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN FASTBOOT USB BEFORE PROCEEDING ****''
After starting root-assistant application phone doesn't go into fastboot usb, only after clicking 'flash recovery' it goes into fastboot...
Am i doing something wrong or it is alright??

I need some help here.

Initially I got as far as Step 5 with the same messages as Rahin has posted. The phone got hung up on the white trying to restart. Eventually I took out the battery and restarted back into FLASHBOOT and it sort of gave me a "SD loading ... no image!" or something error (flashed by quickly, so I didn't get to read it in detail). I was worried that the flash recovery didn't work somehow and thought maybe I should try that whole step again.

I think I successfully flashed the recovery this time, and the phone rebooted to the normal HTC user menu. At this point I wasn't sure what you meant by 4c (did you want the recovery flashed twice, or was that just for users who had previousy failed theirs?) but I figured that for Step 5 ("Once reconnected to the PC...") I should be back in FLASHBOOT USB. I powered down the phone, took out the battery, put it back in, then accidentally turned it back on normally again, at which point it seemed to stick on the HTC white loading screen. I waited a while, tried turning it off with the button, and finally took out re-inserted the battery. Currently in normal HTC user mode. I think I'll await for help before I fiddle with it further! Gryffon, if you're around, I'd really appreciate some advice getting these last steps completed. This is the last message I got when I flashed the recovery:


C:~\Phone Root\root-assistant\All In One Kit\data>adb kil
l-server


C:~\Phone Root\root-assistant\All In One Kit\data>adb reb

C:~\Phone Root\root-assistant\All In One Kit\data>pause
Press any key to continue . . .


I'm not sure what's happening with the error regarding adb reboot bootloader: was I supposed to have moved that file somewhere? Is that the problem?

When I go into FASTBOOT USB, there is no RECOVERY option in following menu there. There IS a RECOVERY option in the first menu, but that's not under the "FASTBOOT" selection. When I click it the phone restars and gets up on the white screen. What do?

Hello, I'm more concerned with the fact that the "error Device Not Found" is showing in the dialogue, then the program is pausing. This indicates that the program failed because your device drivers are not installed correctly.
This can be due to OTA Updates on your phone, in which case it will be difficult to get around.
Saying that, it has been sometime since I posted this, but do still have the rooted WFS here, so I will have to run everything again to understand what the problem is. If you are willing to give me a little time to check everything my end I will help all I can to resolve your issue.

Hi Gryffon, thanks for getting back to me! I'm happy to wait until you've checked through things. I went looking through the folders for adb reboot bootloader and it's definitely not there...

Default Can't pass through the recovery

I am having exactly the same situation as rahin.
I received the message the phone was rooted and at the same time the message: "adb reboot recovery adb server is out of date"

So now I don't know if my phone is rooted or not also I can't boot into recovery. When i try HBOOT >> FASTBOOT >> RECOVERY, it gets stuck in white screen with HTC logo. If I remove the battery and start the phone again it loads normally with all my contacts, apps, messages etc so now I don't know whether the recovery actually worked or not and whether the phone is rooted or not. I don't know what should be my next step. I also just tried flashing with the recovery.img that was posted on Caro332 link and after doing the perm root I get the message the phone was rooted and at the same time the message: "adb reboot recovery adb server is out of date" the phone restart and goes straight into the ClockworkMod Recovery screen the black screen with light blue tabs that was mentioned above but if i go to option advanced>reboot recovery then the same happens white screen with HTC logo. I don't know what should I do!

Also I did not understand about the SU part of this tutorial can someone explain a little more detail how I verify the SU and how I get that installed??

I would really appreciate to have more information on how to proceed!

Thank you
Debora

This worked quick easy and perfectly. Your instructions are perfectly clear and everything worked exactly as you had it laid out. Thank you and I hope this works as smoothly for everyone else as it did for me.

Hi

first of all sorry for repeating this post which I have already added to the support section, but I didnt see this post until now.

I am a noobie to all this, and I am looking to fix the issue I have with my HTC Wildfire S, after updating to v2.3.5 my earpiece no longer works.

I am hoping to be able to rollback to the previous version and would like some help on how to go about it, or if this is not the correct solution I would really appreciate some assistance to resolving my issue.

Any help would be gratefully received. many thanks

Hey, I'm trying to download the root_assistant.zip but the site isn't pulling up. Is there another way I could get it? Thanks in advance.
