DISCLAIMER: Please note that this guide contains information gathered from all the HTC ChaCha (Status) sections, which means that a lot of users have contributed to this. I have only gathered all the information here so it would be easier for new/old users to check specific problems/questions. Please give thanks to the "community".

All these things are collected from HTC Chacha Section. I do not take the credit. I just collected the data and defined it in a simple way.
B'cuz when i first tried to Root my HTC ChaCha which came with S-ON. I disappointed to see that S-ON is impossible without XTC Clip. But then tried out many things and finally found out that way to root HTC Chacha S-ON..

To Install Custom ROMs refer to this thread please.

I joined just a few days ago and I can tell you that you can root the ChaCha with S-ON. It's a matter of reading the guides and tutorials, they are already readily available.

Don't use the power button in CWM. Use the enter key, as stated above.
