Hi all,


HTC Wildfire S. UK T-Mobile. New today. GSM.


Unlocking the bootloader was nto plain sailing but seems to have worked:

I unlocked the bootloader via this link - eventually
http://htcdev.com/bootloader

I got an error 190 when trying to apply the T-Mo UK RUU:



There were no such updates available. I tired the HTC EU RUU. Error 191:



So I pulled the rom.zip (HBOOT update) from the RUU using this method:

http://lukasz.szmit.eu/2010/04/extra...c-android.html

Renamed it PG76IMG.zip (actual version below)

http://www.cosic.org.uk/MarkoStuff/android/PG76IMG.zip

I applied this with a goldcard using method #3 here:

http://nzlamb.wordpress.com/2011/07/...ry-rom-update/

Then the HTC process continued as normal to unlock the bootloader.



In the bootloader there is not the *** UNLOCKED *** in pink across the top.
MARVEL PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-1.09.0099
MICROP-0451
RADIO-7.46.35.08
Then the date.



Now I try this thread:

http://androidforums.com/wildfire-s-...s-finally.html

HTC supertool v3 doesn't work.

1/2, or 1/3 says 'rooted' but if I try a 'su' at the $ command prompt I'm permission denied.


So I try this thread:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1195275
with clockworkmod from:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1213229

(still on a Goldcard to ignore CID checks)

xda-cn recovery
Old clockworkmod
New clockworkmod

all three give the same error message when entering the bootloader and waiting for PG76IMG.zip to do it's thing:

Main Version is older!
Update Fail!
Press <POWER> to reboot.

This is beyond me. What is that error message trying to tell me please?


Thanks,

UnlockRoot also doesn't work:





Success with this link:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1431969

That little gadget (thanks eoghan2t7, have $5) gave some terrifying looking errors.

I used the manual option and hit root. It made errors, then it brought up a CWM console that allowed me to apply the xda_cn root.zip file to get superuser/root access. Then it made more errors, and failed to remove CWM recovery, so now I've got SU and CWM recovery.

Hope that this is useful for somebody - perhaps it could be transferred into the threads I've linked to? (I don't have enough pots to add to them)





Cheers,

Reading that again it makes no sense.

To clarify:

I asked eoghan2t7's app to manually "root" the phone using a "temporary" clockworkmod. It couldn't root the phone itself, but it did let me apply the rooting script by XDA.cn from this thread...

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1195275

...and then failed to remove clockworkmod, a series of errors which left me with what I was after in the first place! (clockworkmod and root access)
