Default Serious Issues With Rooting

I have spent over a week trying to root my HTC Legend (running 2.2 froyo HBOOT 1.01).
Ive tried a dozen guides everywhere but I cant seem to get past the downgrade process :/
I tried this guide here (http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=894465) but i got "permission denied" when i tried to "adb reboot bootloader"

I get the cr--rw---- error when i try other guides.
Nothing seems to work.

Can anyone please write a simplified guide at one place for all this?
or tell me What really could be going wrong?

Use the "Hboot made easy guide" which is somewhere in this forum section. Very simple and I used the guide to root my legend after having fruitless tries with other guides.

The Legend just got added to the htc dev site so you should be able to unlock the bootloader now, might make things much easier for you.

Hi,

Did you find a solution ?
I'm in the same situation as you, my legend is froyo 2.2 and HBOOT 1.0.

If we use the htcdev, after that can we root the legend ?

first of all download an application called visionary+
http://content.modaco.net/dropzone/c...ryplus.r13.apk

make sure that the usb debugging is turned on.

i hope you know how to create a gold card and that you have done it.
put the gold card in the phone.

then instead of running the crackin.bat file open it in word pad.
then temp root the phone using visionary+

type in each command one by one in the command prompt.
then when you reach the step where they show "adb shell" followed by commands.
then type
adb shell
then you will get a '$' symbol
then type su
then you will get a '#' symbol

then continue typing the commands without the 'adb shell'
after you type 'reboot' ignore the 'wait_for_device'
once the phone is back on temp root it again before you proceed.
finish the procedure this way.
Remember that you will get many error messages while you type each command. ignore the messages.

You wont get the full crwxrwxrwx. But what you get will be good enough.
now you can run the RUU

please reply if you have any doubts.

hi guys,
i unlocked my device via htcdev its hboot version is now 1.02.000 and i flashed recovery_legend_5.0.2.8.img but i am not able to flash a new rom

after i booted in to recovery mode i chose flash zip from sd card option in the list it couldn't pass to next screen, options listed in the main menu goes off and i can see only cwm icon (a black hat over a yellow circle) i waited 2-3 minutes but nothing happened when i press power button it returns to main menu again.

Also other options listed in the cwm main menu not goes further, reboot system and power off, wipe data... either, same thing happens as described above.

i am waiting your suggestions

inside the cwm menu you have to make a selection by hitting the trackball (when you press the power-button, only the image you've descriped will appear)
