[GUIDE] One Click How to Root the Wildfire with Unrevoked 3.21
As posted the other day, I have managed to get a temporary software-only root solution that will allow you to run some applications that require su. I am currently in discussion with some of the unrEVOked team to take this a step further and get the NAND protection defeated, clockworkmod etc. For now, though, I present an extremely simple, low risk, software root. Yes, it's not quite 1-click (it's 1-click once you've done the initial steps), but it's pretty easy.
You must have adb working.
Step 1: Download and install Superuser.apk from the Market. ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=682828 )
Step 2: Download my SoftRoot package ( http://www.martineve.com/wildfiresof...k/SoftRoot.apk )
Step 3: Execute from a command prompt in the directory where you downloaded SoftRoot.apk:
adb install SoftRoot.apk
adb install ./SoftRoot.apk
Step 4: Run the SoftRoot application that is now installed.
The application will now crash. Wait 2 seconds, close it and you are rooted.
You will need to re-perform stage 4, only, each time you reboot.

To compile Java app, you will need to create a project that has su, rootshell and compiled exploid inside the resources/raw folder.
