Arrow [HOWTO] Root Your Desire In 1 Click With UnrEVOked! (UnrEVOked 3.2 Compatible)

HOWTO: Root & Flash a Permanent Custom Recovery Image in 1 Click With UnrEVOked

I did not make UnrEVOked, I just make the guide

Why?

It enables you to root easily & have a custom recovery image installed (like Hero or G1) so that you can have access to Recovery anywhere. (& Backup SD EXT)

Can I get Back?

You can get back very easily by using an HTC RUU for your network which you can find here. Or use one of my OpenRUUs for Linux & Mac users.


Requirements:

A HTC Desire
Patience!
A PC, Mac or Linux (Linux or Mac recommended because you will have no problems with drivers or HTC Sync.)


NOTE: When UnrEVOked 3.2x is released, This method WILL work with it.
You can check UnrEVOked's Twitter feed to check if it has been released yet or join #unrevokedtest IRC here to see if there are any test builds avalible.
(FYI, 3.2 roots FroYo)


Follow my guide here to root & flash a recovery image! http://bit.ly/c53S7A
(the guide is on my site so I can edit it easily and to prevent all the copies becoming out of date.)

Nope, developers have locked it completey up so that HTC can't figure out the method. It's the same group that did the evo 4g root so it is legit. This is different to fake-flash because you get a permanent custom recovery image when you hold power + home.

So this is the real deal then? It will be just like the flashing method we have always known on older HTC phones (G1, Magic, Hero etc)? Will need to figure out if i need to remove fake-flash or anything else for that matter before i consider it i think...
