You don't need to flash a kernel. It is optional. In your case, unlock bootloader, flash CWM and then flash ROM. No root needed if you are going to flash a ROM.

I'm TERRIBLY sorry if this has been explained in the thread already, but I've read through the thread and tried looking myself, and just can't come to a definitive conclusion about what I need to do because everyone is trying something different, from a different place, with a different goal in mind :P. I had an ungoldy difficult time trying to flash to the official ics 4 rom for my HTC Vivid, mostly due to the info on the net failing to mention a very simple step (relock your bootloader). So this time I figured I'd go ahead and ask.

I have flashed to the official icecream sandwich rom from the HTC website. I unlocked my bootloader with the all in one tool. I cannot get the version 2.1 tool to root the Vivid. It usually tells me that the su cannot be found. Same thing happens if I try to work with the su in a terminal program, for instance. Doesn't work even if I have the phone in the fastboot screen. What do I need in order to unlock this phone from the official rom?

Also note that I got my phone secondhand with VJRaider rom initially installed, and since wiped over with all sorts of kernel and recovery flash attempts. I'm amazed at how brick-resistant droids are. Thanks a lot guys!

You are not forgiven!! haha jk.

Download this

Place it on your SD card. Flash a recovery if you haven't done so, and flash that zip file and you will now have a root phone =D
