    Finally my desire is arriving tomorrow (after a lot of complications but that's another story), and i will be rooting it, Ive seen plenty of guides and read through them, but obviously the simplest one seems to be unrevoked, is it really as simple as plugging the phone in and doing its thing? or does it depend on boot screen etc? and im using a mac if that makes a difference?

    thanks and sorry if this has been answered before

    You'll need to install the USB drivers etc as the guide suggests. It does depend on what version of HBOOT your handset has, and what type of screen it has, but there's plenty of guides out there once you've obtained this information.

    There is a whole thread about it called 'one click method' or something similar but as thomsonga says check your Hboot version especially as its a new phone.

    If it any help the least you can do is hold power+vol down to boot into Hboot and check the version number. You can do that without any fear of changing anything from stock. Just reboot once you read off the loader version.

    You can run unrevoked3 on a Mac, just download it and follow the instructions.

    Don't try to use old rooting methods, it will break your screen.

    All you should have to do is format and partition the memory card correctly. It should then use Apps2SD+ by default.
