    I have a Wildfire S phone with Virgin Mobile. I want to try to root it. I started following the directions in the rooting thread but I can't get the phone to work with HTC sync. It tells me that I can download it from my SD card. How do you do that? I don't seem to be able to figure that out. Is there anybody that can help me with getting sync to work? I am a total noob but I can figure most things out. This one is driving me insane.

    I just used mithusan's guide, stickied here, to root. Worked great, I recommend it. You don't need sync to work, just the drivers it installs.

    Yep.. probably got something to do w/ usb debugging [under menu, settings, applications, development] or Fast boot [under menu, settings, power]. I remember those switches were both red herrings way back when I rooted.

    I downloaded it to my computer and it installed the drivers and it wont let me select the MMC1. That's where it stops I've been trying to use simonsimons34 tutorial to S-off my phone. I'll try mithusan's maybe I'll have better luck.
