Hey

I have HTC desire s, which is pretty old (i'v had about three years now). In recent months it has started to run more and more sluggishly. After I re-downloaded a game that I played when I first got the phone I realized that my phone had experienced some power-loss, as the game that used to run smoothly now lagged. It wasn't so big deal as I do not play games with my phone so often, but now it feels like apps that I use and pretty much need like whatsapp and internet browser are also starting to lag more.
So now I am trying to find some way to restore my phone do the state it was when I first got it.
I have done almost everything that you can do with an un-rooted phone. (Ram,cache,apps...) I also did "factory reset" which actually seemed to help for a while, but soon the problem came back.
I tried also rooting my phone with super-one-click, but even I followed instructions "perfectly" and the app said my phone is rooted it actually wasn't.
I can try it again if it's necessary.

Thank you for Answers and I apologize for being a noob.

Pls google "HTC Desire S All-In-One Toolkit V2.0". first link should be a valid download. I'm not allowed to post a link

also download the latest recovery for your phone --> TWRP 2.6.3.0 for Desire S

When you got it we can go on

The toolkit provides steps to "Unlock bootloader" via HTCdev.com. You need it unlocked to root or flash a custom recovery.

PLS read exactly and keep in mind that unlocking the bootloader will reset your phone to stock. MAKE SURE you safe ALL your PERSONAL DATA before you proceed.
