    Hello,

    I am in the process of attempting to root my HTC Desire, running the HTC Sense 2.2. I am using the unrEVOked on OS X, but it fails every time saying:
    "internal error: failed to unlock NAND flash"

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I'm on the same boat as you are. Still trying to figure it out. What is your carrier?

    Try going into recovery mode and clear Dalvik and then try unrevoked again.

    You aren't using unrEVOked forever are you??

    Are you using the latest version of unrEVOked?

    "Dalvik cache is a program cache area for the program dalvik. Dalvik is a java based virtual machine that is the bases for running your programs (the ones that have the .apk extension). In order to make access times faster (because there's not JIT (just in time) compiler installed by default), the dalvik-cache is the result of dalvik doing a optimization of the running program. Sounds confusing. It's similar to the prefetch files in Windows."

    You won't lose anything, don't worry!! ;)

    Thanks! :)

    Anyways, you should always backup your sd content before (to your computer).

    Recovery, advanced, wipe dalvik cache, confirm.

    Copy all the files from you sd card to your computer. (copy/paste)

    That means unrevoked hasn't.flashed recovery and you still have stock recovery

    Thanks SUroot for the clarification. Is there another way to clear the davik cache? And LECTER, I'm using OS X, but I have access to both Windows, and various Linux distros if it would make things easier.

    The only way I know how to wipe Davlik cache is through recovery.

    So is there a proven way to root a US Cellular HTC Desire, with HBOOT 1.06? Any information on the subject would be really appreciated.

    Thanks.
