I have read the thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1746561 where @SeBsZ showed the method to root this phone having baseband 1.04 and 1.06 so here i will show how to root desire v having baseband 1.05

Its my first thread HOW TO ROOT so m not resposible if u brick your phone however here's the link to stock roms if in case ur phone gets bricked.!!

First of all you have to unlock bootloader and install cwm recovery on your phone, here's the tutorial:

Step 1 – Bootloader Unlock

Go to htcdev.com then create an account there and click on Unlock Bootloader. Choose “All Other Supported Models” and click on begin bootloader unlock at the place. You will not void your all warranty but only HTC will not cover the problems which are caused due to software problems so accept the agreement.

To enter bootloader mode, make sure the phone is switched off. Remove the battery if it is not getting switched off. Then hold Volume Down and start pressing the Power button without any USB cable. Use the volume up and volume down buttons to select “Fastboot” and select it using the Power button. Now connect your USB cable and continue following the HTC instructions.

You need the zip file which you must have downloaded from the above link. You also need HTC USB Drivers installed to connect it with you device. Using the command prompt you can simply navigate to the extracted files and run the fastboot command. (Use the command “cd C:/myextractedzip” to change to a directory).

Save the Unlock_Code.bin attachment which you get from HTC by Email into the same extracted zip folder and run the next command. You now have an unlocked bootloader and the phone will start up and an HTC wizard.

Congratulations ! Your bootloader is now unlocked.

Step 2 – Flash ClockWorkMod Recovery


Remove the USB Cable if connected and boot again into bootloader mode. Click fastboot and reconnect it to your PC. Now run the following command on your PC via fastboot :- fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Switch off your phone now again and make sure that the USB Cable is also removed from your computer.

Congratulations! Your recovery is now installed.

U can get the recovery img here


Now ,Download Desire_V_Official.zip ROM File Copy to SDcard Folder must not be located in any of the coding.

1. HTC Desire V shut completely

2. press and hold the button Down and press the Volum Power and wait.

3. Select Recovery and press Power

4. Select wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition

5. go to the advanced menu.

6. Select install zip from sdcard menu

8. Select the file Desire_V_Official.zip to the Flash ROM.

Wait When the Flash has finished, select reboot system now.

Finishing the Flash ROM.

Good thread.

By the way, if I install this ROM, will it be able to accept the OTA?

Can't say surely for that..... It can be tested only when there's an update
