hi, I own Desire Z from vodafone UK, unlocked. I got rid of the Vodafone junk by loading a generic ROM using goldcard. But the problem arised when I tried to do a permroot. I followed few guides, including Visionary some time ago, some of them 2-3 times and made sure I followed them absolutely word by word, but still no luck. I did not get any error messages or anything, just in the end, when the device was supposed to be rooted, it wasn't. My details: Android Version 2.2 Baseband version 12.28b.60.140eU_26.03.02.26_M Kernel version 18.104.22.168-gd2764ed htc-kernel(at)and18-2 #1 Build Number 1.34.405.5 CL273326 release-keys Software number 1.34.405.5 Is there a guide/solution you would recommend for this particular device? That would be much appreciated. Also three OT questions What is the best Desire Z rom for battery life? Will the HTC Doubleshot be the successor of Desire Z or will it be other device? Is anyone using Mugen 1800mAh battery in his Desire Z and what were the hour gains by swapping it? As I did not notice difference in battery life really.
