Answers

(although you'll find these by searching and reading the forum further)

You don't achieve root using the XTC Clip, but, currently the only way to make you phone root is to first make it S-OFF (using XTC clip)


1 Yes - you invalidate your warranty and I don't believe that you can S-ON again.

2 The XTC clip route to S-OFF appears to safe, although you perform it completely at your own risk! to indicate how safe I intend to get my phone done by this route next week.

3 Not currently, people are working on a software method for this phone and Incredible S but haven't got there as yet.

4 If you mean, can you use the same XTC clip device for the older DESIRE as the DESIRE S the answer is yes, although I believe that you need the latest firmware/drivers for the XTC clip in order to get DESIRE S support.

No. It's only way (at the moment)

Although I know that I've read other posts of many Indian users with DESIRE S that are also looking for XTC in India and were talking about going in together to purchase one, but I can't remember whether they were in this forum, the Desire S Android Dev one or in one of the Incredible S forums..

So best you start looking/reading and then contact one of them directlt... best of luck.
