    OK I have done the Hboot thing and downloaded unrevoked3 but am a little scared to carry on as it says to uninstall HTC sync. I can't find out any where HOW to uninstall it only disable it. I have a Desire with 2.2 and need very laymans terms please.

    I really need to do this to stop the message "Low on storage".


    Also how do I know if the first step has worked?

    What OS are you running?

    On Vista-
    Control Panel
    Uninstall/change programme
    find HTC Sync and uninstall

    Don't uninstall the HTC drivers. These were installed along with HTC Sync but you need them in the root process. HTC Sync conflicts with UnRevoked that's why you need to uninstall that.

    Will it be the same as vista?

    I must have done something wrong, my phone looks and acts as it did, also under control panel on pc there is nothing "Android" or "HTC" on there. :thinking::(

    Should be the same on Windows 7.

    Have you installed HTC Sync previously? I think unrevoked warns you about it just to be safe even if you haven't installed it.

    If you've not installed it you need to install it from the HTC website (should pop up on google if you search for HTC Sync), just select the version that says it's for all android phones and follow the instruction.

    Once it's installed, go through the uninstall instructions, but remember not to delete the HTC Drivers.

    Did unrevoked give any errors. Mine failed at first cos (can't remember why). Easiest way to tell if you rooted is if an app called superuser has appeared in your main menu.

    Please can you read the rooting FAQ (available by following the red link in my sig) then you can use the unrevoked rooting guide from the same link.

    Together these tell you everything you need to know and step by step instructions to root with unrevoked.
