Exclamation Rookie Mistake!

Just for the record I took the Update. Not realizing that the firmware was going to be updated as well. My bad, now I can't even unlock my bootloader, I get an error message(pwr/vol.dn). I also tried to using cmd(adb) error message cannot 'flash' Now what? I usually root my devices on day one. oh well. Noob I am not.:confused a I am...

Any Ideas?

Shouldn't matter if you took the update
HTC Dev will unlock your bootloader unless Sprint blocked it like what happened to Verizon...they blocked folks from using HTC Dev.

I took the update a couple days ago, and just rooted last night. Htcdev worked fine for me. Followed this video:

Thumbs up Got It

Late last night I tried out Hasoon2000's (EASY) ALL-IN-ONE KIT. It got me rooted. Always did it manually never had any issue before, oh well I'm rooted that's what matter.

Thanks for the feedback

And a big thanks to Hasoon2000's.

Great Work!
