Is there any recovery that works with an HTC Wildfire S A510e?

    I've followed the sticky manual on this forum called:

    [Guide] How to root the Wildfire S with S-ON

    Everything went well and I got the phone UNLOCKED.

    I continued with the rest of the points until I got to this part:

    As it says in there, the CWM recovery gives me a black screen. But I've tried the last TWRP recovery image and it doesn't work either, instead of a black screen I get a fixed HTC charging screen and it doesn't charge.

    Is there any recovery image that works with this phone? Or should the TWRP work except it doesn't in my phone? In that case is there any other way to root the phone?

    I finally solved it after trying a million things using the recovery IMG from this thread:


    [Edit]: Anyway be careful with that Recovery IMG because now it boots directly into the recovery for me without going into the H-BOOT screen and I don't know if that is a good thing...

    Good to know they finally found a way around this problem!
