    sorry if this an old question, but all I want to do is be able to delete some of the crapware that came with my WFS, move apps to SD storage, and partition the SD card so I can have apps there.

    all I need is S-OFF and root correct?

    I would rather not have to install a custom ROM as I like the stock look and sense (just not the space hog Virgin Mobile preinstalled crap)

    also, there is a ton of info on just how to S-Off and root (THANKX :) ) but I am on info overload. what would be the best and easiest way to achieve.

    thankx all :)

    1. S-OFF
    2. Root
    3. Install Clockworkmod Recovery
    4. Backup your ROM's present state
    5. Use ES File Explorer to uninstall bloatware as it backs up system apps that it uninstalls on the SD card.

    Here is the thread you need for s-off/root for Virgin Mobile:

  3. My Virgin Mobile Wildfire S is rooted and S-OFF has been achieved, but whenever I boot into the bootloader it cycles saying something about wrong image/no image and will not allow me to access CWM.

    Any idea why this would be or how to fix it?

    This is really the wrong place to put this request.

    I'd just re-flash the recovery. Use this one for MarvelC:

    Flash it using step 5A of this guide:
