Hi Guys, I really need your help on this one. I have HTC Wildfire from Cox. I wanted to root and remove Cox power up animation on this phone. Here is the details of my phone:
Android 2.2.1
HBoot 1.40.0000
Kernel 2.6.32.21

Let me know if you need more information. I saw many guides about Wildfire but I did not see anyone that has HBoot 1.40.0000 that is why I'm not really sure if the guide is right for my phone.

Sorry I'm new with HTC and Android please help and point me to the right direction.

Thank you so much!!

Sorry, the HTC Bee is very similar but not the same as the Buzz. But that doesn't mean I can't help you

Get one of the Wildfire boot animations or any boot animation that is 240x320. Look in the folders
/system/customize/resource or
/system/media or
/data/local.

Replace it with your boot animation.
Watch it go

Thanks Giffgaff! You are a ROCKSTAR!!

I was able to root my phone using Z4root

Instead of just changing the boot animation I want to load a new ROM. There are so many ROMs in this site how can I tell if the ROM is the right for my phone? Please note this is a CDMA phone.

Thank you so much Guys!!!

Lol, giffgaff is just the name of my carrier, not actually my username

Unfortunately, this is where the Bee is lacking in - ROMs. As the Buzz is a GSM phone, not CDMA, the ROMs in this phone's Development section will not work on your Bee

The Bee is very similar to the Buzz but as it is CDMA, most ROMs will not work and as there have been no custom recoveries, that makes it even harder to flash ROMs

But you're free to make one if you wish, you'll save the Bee community

I don't know any ROMs personally for the Bee, but a good place to start to make ROMs is Chef Central, here in XDA. You can ask whatever you wish about ROM making - there are quite a good few guides to making them. You can start by extracting a ROM from the HTC Bee RUU. A guide for that is here: I also started off like this!

But first of all, it would be a good idea to start learning the Android slang - this is a good one. Or alternatively, browse any random HTC device and browse the threads, looking for new words. And that thanks was to increase your thanks meter.

I found Alltel and C Spire RUU.... I'm sure these are "Bee" RUU. How can I tell these are compatible for my Wildfire? Thanks!

This should be it. I think C Spire only sell the Bee, judging by their website
