Default [Q] Rooting HTC Sensation

Dear Seniors,Developers,Moderators and Members,



Hi guys, I recently just joined this site and is totally new to rooting my Sensation.


I read threads like [Guide] to Installing S-off, ClockWork, Root, SuperCID & S-on [03/AUG/11](noobproof), [ROM] Android Revolution HD™ 3.5.0 XE | High Quality & Performance | OC | faux 0.1.5


but I am still not sure about certain things


1)My Sensation is running on Android 2.3.3. Am I able to S-OFF, Permanently root my Sensation and to install Android Revolution HD rom which has 2.3.4?


2)Which steps am I going to take to S-OFF, Permanently root and install that custom rom? [Got confused whether to follow step 1 to 3 [root] or step 1 and 2[install custom rom for the first time]]


3)Am I use my phone normally like an unrooted phone after S-OFF and Permanently rooted my phone without install a custom rom?

4)Is this [GUIDE] (For Noobs) SDK, ADB, and Drivers needed as part of the phone rooting process?[I don't have any HTC Sync software/drivers installed]


5)Is Super CID needed to install Android Revolution HD rom? [I didn't quite understand what Super CID is]

Thank you for spending your time reading it, any more information or help is much appreciated.

2. Read the first guide, do Step 1 & 2 and then flash the custom ROM
3. Yes, if you do Steps 1, 2 & 3 (if you just want a stock rooted ROM)
4. No
5. No

You can Root you sensation.
Follow the steps from step 1.
1)S-off your phone via Revolutionary method;
2)Install recovery;
3)Permenantly root your phone;
4)Flash New Rom;

These are the basic steps you have to follow. All the steps are explained very well in the thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1192300.
SuperCID is not really required.
And the drivers, well i did not download them(I am not sure if they were already present in my laptop), so just give it a try without downloading them, but yes, the files mentioned on the S-off, Rooting thread would be required.
Before starting, make sure to "Enable Debugging" and "Disable Fastboot".
Also uninstall HTC Sync from your mobile.
Good luck with it, if there are any more doubts, post again, me or someone else will help for sure.

Nope, I have already uninstalled the HTC Sync and left HTC Driver Installer and HTC BMP Usb Driver installed only.

Just keep trying, it will eventually work. I've reported it god knows how many times to the Revo guys but they either don't care or can't fix it

After each step that fails, reboot the phone and do it again
