I used unsecureboot and oneclick method. I got root. But now I can enable wireless no more. Rebooting the phone or unroot with one click did not help..

Any ideas?

I dont understand why people would still want to use this?
Isnt it redundant now since gingerbreaks out.
Once your s-off Gingerbreak works a treat, no need to flash a boot.img

you have to update your kernel. this unsecured bootimage contains an old kernel and no mudules for wifi or else.

after you got root you have to flash clockworkmod recovery and than a custom rom from this forum to get a working kernel with itīs modules.

this bootimage is only for rooting and flashing recovery... after that you have to reflash an actual kernel which is in every custom rom here.

hope that helps

regards

p.s this boot img is from times whre gingerbreak didnīt work for the desire s... since gingerbreak 1.2 roots every desire s with s-off there is no need for that way of rooting.
some people wanted this again after it was deleted... there is no need for this until gingerbreak works very well.

Understood.

I flashed an original rom and got root with gingerbreak 1.2. Now it works fine.

Problem was gingerbreak thread was not on the first page and I was in a hurry (as usual )

Thanks again
