Default [Q]Unable to root Wildfire S

Hi!

I have tried every guide i have been able to find how to root wildfire S but none is working for me. I have spend several days trying.
Latest guide I tried is this one:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1342288

Everything works fine until step 6 when i get a notification about sleepsometime.exe not beeing compatible with 64 bits Windows. That should not be a problem i think but the problem is the command:

adb shell mount -o rw,remount rootfs /

The response I get when running that command is "mount: Operation not permitted".

After that I get a error when running adb shell chmod 755 /sbin. The error I get is Unable to chmod /sbin: Read-only file system
I am not a expert on Linux or Android but for me it sounds that I should be able to remount the filesystem as root after running zergRush but for me that is not the case
I also get error on step 8: "failed to copy 'busybox' to '/sbin/busybox': Permission denied"

The full output from temproot.BAT is:

C:\Android\HTC\temproot>temproot

Try the traditional method perhaps. Get a recovery, flash it through fastboot or the PG76100.zip method, then flash a superuser from the recovery.

Default Not working

This time I followed the guide on androidforums.com/wildfire-s-all-things-root/480954-guide-how-root-wildfire-s-s.html
I got black screen when I choosed recovery in hboot so I installed goo managare (as instructed) but that app closes with message "The application GooManager (process com.s0up.goomanager) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again."


Any other suggestions?

The problem is most probably because you have a 2012 Wildfire S (same as me). Try with the recovery here
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2692158. Download it and flash the recovery in the same way as you did with clockworkmod one. Hope it will work as it does for me.

Dear Frnds..
I am a naive in these technology of rooting but can follow instruction. I too tried rooting my HTC wildfire s but unsuccessfull til now. The phone status is S-ON, and HBOOT version 1.09.009(sth like that). reading this I copied the recovery in the root of SDcard and fast boot through manually and through emulator but did not succeed. Please help me to root my phone. Have read so many threads but could not get my phone rooted. This thread is the latest hence I thought there is some hope.

Thanks in advance ..

Have you unlocked your bootloader? If not go to htcdev.com and unlock it from there, only then you can flash a recovery.

You don't need to flash RUU as your HBOOT is already newer. Skip that step. Goto the next step where they ask you to enter the information from fastboot....In your phone go to bootloader (switch off, remove battery, connect battery again and power+volume down.) then to fastboot.
Enter the command shown on the website, copy paste it it the textbox. They should email you a file "Unlock_code.bin". Copy that to your home folder and enter the command from htcdev .

12.10 should work but you don't need ADT. You'll only need adb and fastboot. (sudo apt-get install adb fastboot). BTW off-topic you should consider upgrading to 14.04 as 12.10 is not supported anymore and 14.04 is actually great.
