    Right, I've tried the latest Unrevoked3 on my wildfire with these different options: - latest HBOOT drivers from the site, - phone in "charge only" mode - Phone in "disk drive" mode - factory reset performed on phone - version 3.2.1 of Unrevoked and every single time I get to Unrevoked saying "Finding root" and then it says "Could not find root. Firmware too new?". I don't know what else to try!?!?!? Anybody got any ideas?

    Ow nuts! Yes I am. Thanks for the reply, I guess I'll have to sit on Revoked's website pushing refresh until they update. ;)

    you can root a 2.2 once you have the S switch turned of using an XTC clip

    Unrevoked roots the phone. It doesn't unlock the phone so you can use other sims.

    Yes but once phone is unlocked differnt roms can be put in removing the lock...

    Have since paid an unlocking mob $25.99au for the code and its unlocked but would still like the phone completely unlocked eventually.
    Telstra wanted $100

    i personally rooted myself with unrevoked.
    i did downgrade my firmware to 2.1 using ruus from Shipped ROMs
    its BUZZ
    RUU_Buzz_HTC_WWE_1.37.405.1_Radio_13.53.55.24H_3.35.19.25_release_151892_signed

    then it worked... good luck

    What he means is that once s-off (Secu-Flag - off) is achieved then you have access to potentially everything on your device, using an XTE-clip is alot of hassle,
    I just used tools i found on the internet and 1hr later i rooted my Wildfire, then when i rooted my friends it took like 10mins

    Cool...so you just put the file in the root of the sd card, reboot into HBOOT menu and hopefully the rest is history as regards downgrading?
    My phone is rooted, and S-Off, but damned it i can get it to install a custom recovery. Rooted through superoneclick, as i couldnt seem to get the beta key right on alpharev, and like that firmware too new for unrevoked. (superoneclick doesnt install recovery)
    So, re-root as such using unrevoked, after downgrading...ok, here goes...
