Default [Q] !!!Please help with bootloader unlock!!!!

I tried a lot of method to unlock my bootloader on HTC Wildfire S, proble is that i have software 2.26.401.3 and baseband 47.23e.35.3038H_7.57.39.10M.....if tried directly on the pc with ruu.exe i gave the error 140....when i put the ruu on SDCard it say the the version is older....i make a goldcard, and he said again the the version is older.....if i tried to flash he said ''FAILED <remote: signature verify fail>''

I want to specify that the phone is unlocked, i tried 4 carriers and all work's good!

Csoul is correct. Your bootloader is already updated to an unlockable one and you need to start at htcdev.com with the step that retrieves your identifier token and sends it up to their website. You cannot update your bootloader further.

it means cwm has not been flashed properly .so only you get black screen when you enter recovery .

Step 1: Flashing the Custom Recovery UI by XDA.cn

Again, make sure your device is S-OFF.
Again, make sure your memory card is formatted FAT32.
Place the PG76IMG.zip file into your phone SD card.
Disable Fast Boot from your phone settings (Settings > Power > Disable Fastboot)
Turn your phone off.
Hold down the "power" button and the "volume down" button for a few seconds till you see the HBOOT screen.
Don't press anything. The system will scan for some files and it will prompt you for an update. Move the cursor to OK (volume up) to start the flashing process.
After it finishes, press the "power" button to restart the system.
Let Android boot and delete the PG76IMG.zip file from your SD card via USB.
Congrats! Custom recovery has been installed. Process to step 2.


Step 2: Flashing the rooting script by XDA.cn

Copy the root.zip file into your phone SD card.
Turn your phone off.
Boot into recovery: Hold down the "power" button and the "volume down" button for a few seconds till you see the HBOOT screen. Let it do its thing and then select "RECOVERY".
At the recovery menu, use the volume buttons to select "install zip from sd card".
Then select "choose zip from sd card".
Then find the "root.zip" file on the list.
Select "YES".
Let the script do its thing till you see "Install from sd card completed".
Select "Go Back" on the menu till you find the "power off" option and select it.
Turn your phone back on and let Android boot


you can use the custom recovery PG76IMG.img or else clockworkmod recovery from

http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager

cwm recovery have more options ,so i prefer you to use that .

you can find those FILES in the source which i have specified.

you need an xtc clip to get s-off you can probably go to a phone shop and ask them to do that for you. but htc unlocked is good enough if you're only going to flash roms or root

If you have ADB installed, do this.

Download the Recovery image from here: http://download.clockworkmod.com/rec...2.8-marvel.img

Put it in a folder where you have installed adb. Example: c:\android

Then reboot phone into bootloader and enter fastboot mode after it scans.

Connect the phone by USB cable. The FASTBOOT should change into FASTBOOT USB. If it doesn't, download and install HTC Sync.

Go to cmd and type the following:

cd c:\android
fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.8-marvel.img

It should flash successfully.
Then enter recovery and flash root.zip

Done! Enjoy.
