Hi, Firstly I have been reading loads about rooting and upgrading to Gingerbread, and I feel I am in a position and feel confident enough to go ahead and go it. I have also read about different methods, and I feel the following is the easiest and less risky one... Could somebody confirm this is the right thing to do and I am not forgetting anything? That'd be great! 1. Create a goldcard that is basically a backup of my phone and everything. How To Make Gold Card for HTC Desire HD 2. Follow the instructions here: [TOOL][VIDEO] One click Radio S-OFF, SimUnlock (Easy Root & S-OFF Guide) - xda-developers One-click radio S-OFF tool. 3.

For example, this here: [ROM] Android Revolution HD 4.0 β 4 | Gingerbread & HTC Sense 2.1 | Android 2.3.2 - xda-developers That's it. Or is it? I have the feeling I am missing something! Anybody put my mind at ease or offer any tips? Thanks a million!
