How to check do you have all needed drivers?
1. Check is phone visible in FlashTool after upgrade and before root process. 2. In command prompt type command adb devices
If response is:
List of devices attached
and not :
List of devices attached
Then you need to upgrade drivers.
Plug phone and in Control Panel / System / Device Manager remove semc drivers. UnPlug / RePlug phone it will start search for new drivers if you have follow first red typed text it should find new drivers and install them. And phone should be visible with FlashTool.

LAST WARNING FOR ALL PEOPLE --- DO NOT USE OPTIMIZE FUNCTION IN FLASHTOOL AFTER UPGRADE. BECOUSE OPTIMIZE FUNCTION USES PRE-BUILD BUILD.PROP FILE FROM ANDROID 2.1 AND IT WILL BREAK YOUR OS BOOTING. BUT IF YOU HAVE INSTALL XRECOVERY AND THEN DONE OPTIMIZE U CAN TRY USE THIS >> FlashTool_Optimize_FiX_xRecovery << OR un-tested method using batch script >> FlashTool_Optimize_FiX_Manual <<.
Damn I wonder... People with WildFire... How they feel when you say to them "DON'T BE A BUZZ KILLER!"

and looking at the files posted by aZuZu i can tell u that this will work on ALL BRANDED/GENERIC/REGIONAL 2.3.3 GB FWs... provided that the kernel.sin file remains same (which it will for all 3.0.1.G.0.75 FW)...
but the steps are not correct
u need to do this:
make sure u are on stock 2.3.3 FW
enable Unknown Sources & USB debugging in Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Unknown Sources & Menu -> Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB Debugging
