    There is so much out of date/generic/incorrect/contradictory stuff on the net, it's hard to know what to follow.

    I have a G2 Touch shipped a couple of months ago and running the latest T-Mobile firmware from the UK website.

    I have tried the "quick" method, that just involves running the InstantRoot.apk and it did not work :-(

    How do I get Root? (More specifically, I want to wipe and load "Sense Hero 2.1" ROM)

    My phone details:

    Firmware 1.5
    Model: T-Mobile G2 Touch(UK)
    Baseband: 63.18.55.06FU_6.35.07.08
    Kernel: 2.6.27-0078c992 htc-kernel@and18-2 #821
    Build: 2.73.110.26 CL#69351 release keys
    Software: 1.0.0.A6288

    If someone can point me to the easiest way to get this done, I would be MOST grateful. I'm sick of the endless official 2.1 delays.

    Cheers.

    Thanks. Took a while, and involved.

    Creating a Goldcard
    Downgrading to old HTC Standard
    Rooting using normal method.

    I am now running Sense Hero 2.1 and it's working pretty well for me...

    Many thanks for the links and the smart guys at xda.
