    hey all, i had 2.1 rooted and now since having gotten 2.2 i decided i would root that also. however, i seem to be having problems with it.
    im using unrevoked, and i even downloaded the newest version of it, but it keeps failing to push the image... it worked fine with 2.1, had the whole thing done in 10 mins, but this just does not seem to work... im following the instructions to a T... any ideas?

    Does it give any further information other than flash failed?

    Do you mean to say, you had 2.1, after rooting it, you have, unrooted it with an RUU, and now trying to root after an OTA upgrade to Froyo?

    Did you actually do the update ota? Or.did you run an ruu from your pc? If you did ota on a rooted Rom, this can cause issues.

    Interesting that you successfully ran the OTA on a rooted Desire..Which ROM were you running before you ran the OTA?

    So long as you turn off signature checking in CWM you can flash OTA updates - ****s up your phone, though

    probably ****ed up his phone then.

    reflash via RUU imo then try and root, if you are having problems still then try and update the hboot drivers to use the ones that unrevoked recommends

    what happens if you do "adb devices"
    if that returns a serial number, boot to fastboot and do "fasboot devices"
    if neither of these return anything then its a driver issue

    Clearly not or this thread wouldn't exist. You should not accept ota updates on a rooted phone.

    If you want to re root, you'll have to use an ruu to.wipe an return to stock then root that

    Hey..You've got to read up on adb and where and how to issue commands. Those are basics needed to do anything advanced. There are a lot of threads about adb. If you don't have it, get Android SDK, install it and read about using adb..

    Things you need to know before you try solving your problem: (Via my thread on XDA)
    Know how to use adb from the command prompt. If you dont have adb or dont know how to use it, read this. (Courtesy: VanillaTbone )
    Be familiar and identify the RUU for your device on shipped-roms site
    How to create and use a goldcard. Do it manually, or with the PC application.
    How to navigate to the temporary folder of your Windows PC (Hint: In the run box, type %TEMP% [​IMG]
    How to turn your device on into Recovery mode and Fastboot without seeing the screen [​IMG] (See my thread)

    Simple search on XDA can unravel more details about these simple mysteries.
