Introduction

Hello everybody.

As I didn't find any post that would help me I decided to write it.
My problem was with flashing recovery or rooting wildfire s using Windows 8.1.
My PC doesn't want to see my phone when it in hboot/bootloader
So any ways to use adb service weren't for me. So, both of such important steps as rooting and custom recovery installing seems to be close to impossible.

And also when I tried to flash cwm.zip as PG76IMG.zip I used to see "Main Version is Older. Update fail." or endless "Parsing.. "

I was still able to flash recovery with root rights using rom manager or to root device using recovery


Solution part

1. I found surely compatible cwm recovery for my htc.
cwm 5.0.2.8 for gsm maybe (if last should be chosen) + I already was on 2.26.401.3 firmware

2. For dealing with main version problem I've increased mainver number into android-info.txt dramatically
Code:
modelid: PG7610000
cidnum: HTC__001
cidnum: HTC__N34
cidnum: HTC__203
cidnum: HTC__102
cidnum: HTC__405
cidnum: HTC__Y13
cidnum: HTC__A07
cidnum: HTC__304
cidnum: HTC__032
cidnum: HTC__016
cidnum: HTC__E11
mainver: 44.26.401.3
hbootpreupdate:13
DelCache: 1

3. For dealing with parsing problem I've rebuilt zip-file with my 7-zip.
1. Extract files from your PG76IMG.zip
2. Archive files using store mode
As to recovery.zip, there are two files: recovery.img and android-info.txt
Epilogue

After all of this I've used root.zip I picked somewhere and it worked on my little gray friend.
Now I'm dealing with another questions (why cwm 6.0.0.7 could not be installed)

Dear friends, feel free to correct me with everything you wish. From my words to thread destination. Use pm or reply here.
