    Hey, had my Desire for a few months now, and feel it's time to root. Been scouring the internet for various guides, etc. and the best I've seen is SUroot's guide. All I need to know is if my phone will be ok to root? Here's the specs...

    bravo pvt4 ship s-on
    hboot-0.93.0001
    microp-051d
    touch panel-synt0101
    radio-5.11.05.27

    current system firmware: 2.14.207.3 CL274424 release-keys

    Android version
    2.2

    Baseband Version
    32.49.00.32U_5.11.05.27

    Kernal Version

    htc-kernel@and18-2#1

    Software Number

    As soon as I find out if it's good to go, I'm rooting it! Any suggestion on what ROM to choose? I know there are lots of threads, and I've had a quick look, but wanted to ask people's opinions.

    Thanks

    Not all PVT 4 devices need AmonRA. Only those that report erase size of 40,000.

    If you read the rooting guide by following the red link in my signature, it will advise you how to ascertain your erase size too.

    The other copy of this thread claims that the erase size is 20,000.
