First of all:
- I've checked the HBOOT screen and on top of the phone model was no lock status, which suits the guide's "without lock status".
- I run original, non rooted system, and did a system restore before using the tool just to be sure
- I was prompted to do a downgrade, which went through.
- After setting up all the requirements (USB debugging, charge only) i've used the tool again....
Now to the troubling part, it scanned for "exploits", started flashing and got stuck on the <waiting for device> message for the last 5 hours...
The phone shows HTC logo in white (not the loading screen with the green writing).
The log from the cmd is in the attachment (can't post due to new user limitation)
---- Update ----
I squeezed my "prunes" tight and disconnected the device and killed the script. Surprisingly enough, the phone started like nothing ever happened.
I've started the script again and despite showing all sorts of errors I had no knowledge of, the process ended in an unlocked device
First of all: thanks to Phiber2000 and 3498BoyZ! *thumbs up*
Second: most of these rooting guides require original rom/recovery/bootloader... once I've rooted and will be trying non-original roms, will I put myself in danger regarding any future rooting? Will I ever need to re-root the device (I understand this might be covered on the forum but I don't even know what to look for with this type of question)?
Third: 3498BoyZ, in your second post you state that one of the possible steps after rooting is to update the recovery. What does that mean? Update the OS version of whatever I'll return to in the future if I should choose to "factory reset" in the future? Does it have any implication on the rooting process done?
Thanks again for your contribution and for your patience
