    in order to get the computer to communicate with the phone you will have to install "adb - android debug bridge. This is packaged with the android sdk and platform tools. ---> Android SDK | Android Developers

    what OS (operating system) are you running on your computer?

    [edit: htc sync drivers are also needed, you can uninstall afterwards just keep the drivers.]

    you will need more than the rom file. i think they use a downgrade exploit for the root and such. Just follow that guide i posted for you and you will have what you need. Ill be online if you run into any problems
