    Hello, I am going to show you how to quickly root your phone with S-ON, you need to have your bootloader unlocked. This will also work for MetroPCS users (finally)! If you haven't been able to root your phone with the popular HTCSupertoolv3,etc...then try this free and easy tool to root your phone, without getting errors!

    First download the Wildfire S Manager: http://www.juniorwebdevs.co.uk/wfs/Wildfire%20S%20Manager.exe

    NOW WATCH THIS QUICK VIDEO I MADE: How To Root HTC Wildfire S With S-ON! - YouTube

    Now Here is a text tutorial on how to do it.
    (Recommended)Watch the video first for a easier and better understanding of how to do it.

    1.Run WFS Manager as Admin
    2. Have USB Debugging & HTC Sync ticked (not charge only)
    3. Press "1"
    4. Enter "1" again (Root with CWM Recovery)
    5. Let it root.
    6. Your Done! Phone will reboot on success.

    Also If your feeling nice and this helped you please like the video, much appreciated :)

    How come you don't credit the developer who made WFS Manager? You want us to push the thanks button for you instead of him? That doesn't seem right to me.
