    I have just got a 2nd hand HTC Desire ( Orange Phone) it is unlocked for any networks, But i wanna root my phone. I Had iPhone b4 JB & Unlocked done that np. but this Android there is so many ROMS & stuff. Is it easy 2 root the phone & unlock it or if i root phone will the unlock stay in place is 1st question. As far as workied out it is hard to Brick your phone if u do the radio part on it but some ROMS come complete with all this.

    My HTC Desire is version 2.2 , pvt4 s-on, saw that it had to be pvt4 40.000 or you have to install a different program 1st

    SO MUCH STUFF ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT, Know once ake the 1st step & get it done rest should be ok ALWAYS the 1st part :p

    THANKS ALL

    Don't read anything other than the rooting sticky now until you get root.

    Remember that this is a Desire forum, so the advice in the FAQs and guides is written for that phone only. The rooting procedure will be different for the Sony.

    Also ROMs for one phone will not work on another - sometimes the same ROM has versions for different phones, e.g. CyanogenMod, but you need to use the right version for your handset.
