Default ROOT stock 1.47 ROM (hboot 6.98.1002) using 4EXTRecovery + Ad hoc wifi support

This tutorial is for noob people like me who needs a clean, simple and secure way to achieve something more from their stock ROM phones.
No doubt the devs are doing magics with their images but probably there are many conservative people who want to stay with their original firmwares.
So here we go:


My phone was runnig RUU_Saga_HTC_Europe_1.28.401.1_Radio_20.28b.30.080 5U_38.03.02.11_M_release out of the box first. It was S-ON. I S-OFFed it using Alpharevx and then I rooted it with Gingerbreak 1.20. Then I decided to update the phone with the stock RUU_Saga_HTC_Europe_1.47.401.4_Radio_20.28I.30.085 AU_3805.06.02.03_M_release_199410_signed and I lost my root but the phone was still showing S-OFF. Rooting with Gingerbreak is not working on 1.47.xxx ROMs. I rooted it using 4EXTRecovery v2.1.0 FINAL and this file from http://unrevoked.com/rootwiki/doku.p.../revolutionary

To install 4EXTRecovery v2.1.0 FINAL on a non rooted phone(thanks to madmaxx82 and .sh4d0w.):

1. Download and unzip on your PC the attached 4EXTRecovery v2.1.0 FINAL.zip file

2.Copy all 5 files to the C:\ directory of your PC.

3.Connect your phone to the PC(debug usb option activated) charge only

4.Run cmd to open console, point to the directory where you copied the files and type: adb reboot bootloader - device will boot into the bootloader

5.Type: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Done

After reboot you should have 4EXTRecovery installed available from recovery option on your hboot menu.

6. Copy to the root of your SD Card the file su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip which you can download from here

7.Go to the 4EXTRecovery > install from sd card and choose su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip

8.Done. After reboot you should have SUPERUSER installed and your phone is rooted again

To get Ad hoc wifi support:

9.Download and unzip the attached Ad hoc.zip file to your PC.

10. Install from 4EXTRecovery ADHOC.v2.zip file and reboot.

11.Copy and replace wpa_supplicant file to: /system/bin
(you can use file expert apk from the market to do that)

Done. You have an Ad hoc wi-fi support.

YOUR PHONE MUST BE S-OFF BEFORE TO START THIS PROCEDURE!!!

DO IT ON YOUR OWN RISK!

Good luck!

Just to be sure: does installing 4EXTRecovery or su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed wipe any data from you phone?

If I have ClockworkMod Recovery installed already then can I install 4EXTRecovery on top of that?

I don't think so. You better don't. But why do you need 4EXT once you have already CWM installed? I just shared one option to root 1.47.xx ROM which was not possible to do with Gingerbreak. If I have to remove CWM I would flash stock RUU. You will keep your S-OFF but will loose root. Then install 4EXTRecovery and proceed to root with the su-file. But maybe there is more elegant and time-saving way to do it. Just surch around the forum.

Yes, it works. That's the idea because Gingerbreak is not working on 6.98.1002
