Hey Community, Maybe we can work on this together. There are multiple ways to root this phone. Some methods provide S-Off, while some do not. Some are more simple-sounding, some sound more complex. I am one of the people that could use some explaining, haha. So, I will start with what I know: - HTC's Unlockable Bootloader Method- Allows the user to install a custom recovery and Superuser. This gives the freedom to remove bloatware, use apps that require root (Titanium Backup and the like), and flash roms that use the phone's stock Radio AND Kernal. Because this root method leaves S-On, it DOES NOT allow the user to flash Kernals or Radios. That is all I know, haha. I Have read the How To Root sticky, but that says to downgrade to 2.3.3 first. It seems there are mothods, though, that do not require this, but I may be wrong. The Revolutionary method, for one, seems to give S-Off without having to downgrade. also, there is the AlphaRevX method (which became Revolutionary). I just was hoping that those with experience with these and other methods can chime in to say (1) what method they used, (2) what 'prep work' was needed (PC software, files, downgrading), and (3) what the method achieved (what you can and cannot do now, and how permanent the root is). It just seems like those stickies on rooting may need updating, but I'm probably wrong.
