    I have a Desire Z which I have been trying to root for the past 2 months. I have tried all sorts of roots and none of them work. I cant even get temp root.

    I want to root my phone as obviously there are advantages, but the main reason I'm trying to root is because the wifi does not work on my phone and I have been told its because of a system file that needs deleting that can only be done on a rooted phone.

    Here are my phone details. Maybe there is a reason that someone may know from these details why I cant root.

    Android Version = 2.3.3
    HTC Sense Version = 2.1
