  1. Get fastboot and adb tool for windows here:
  2. Get Fastboot and adb for linux here:
  3. Obtain clockworkmod recovery:
  4. Move the recovery.img above to the same directory/folder/map as fastboot and navigate there with an open cmd prompt (WIN) or terminal (LINUX).
  5. Put the phone is Fastboot USB mode (HINT: Android is not up and running - access it from your hboot screen - see how below)
  6. fastboot flash recovery recovery_name.img <<< from a command line (use root for Linux- sudo ./fastboot flash recovery recovery_name.img)

Clockworkmod includes a backup utility (also known as nandroid backups).

  3. Select "install zip from sdcard"
  4. Then select "Choose zip from sdcard"
  5. Then select "su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip"
  6. Then select "Yes - install su-3.0-efgh-signed.zip" to confirm
  7. Then go back
  8. Then reboot.
  9. You're rooted!

How to start Clockworkmod:
  1. Unplug USB
  2. Turn the device off
  3. Hold volume down button (HOLD IT) and press power
  4. Hboot will start. Navigate to recovery with the vol down button. Press power to select and enter recovery.

Flashing custom roms is much like flashing the root files above. Follow the flashing instructions for the custom ROM you select if you choose to do so. NOTE: You do NOT need to root to flash a custom, rooted ROM.

Try it as root for Linux.

sudo ./fastboot <yadda>

If you are in windows, you need to install the correct drivers. The drivers are in HTC sync. Get the correct version sync for your phone from the HTC support site, install it, then de-install it, leaving just the drivers.
