Q:Is root available at the moment for the Wildfire?
A:Full Root is only availble for Wildfires without the official 2.2.1 update(HBOOT 1.xx)
The only exception if you can make the Wildfire to have S-OFF with the XTC clip

THERE IS NO OTHER WAY THEN THE HARDWARE UNLOCKER CALLED XTC CLIP

Q: How to unroot/ remove root / remove clockworkmod ?
A: Just download your official ROM, ie RUU***.exe from shipped-roms.com and flash it.

Q:Where do I put MP3 files for notifications, ringtones and alarms?

Put your notifications to /sdcard/media/audio/notifications (if doesn't exist create)
Put your alarms to /sdcard/media/audio/alarms (if doesn't exist create)

Default Arranging Screens

How do you easily rearrange (already created) screens (left and right of home screen) without having to remove and recreate again. Thanks

Default Wildfire Weather Data

Where does HTC gets the weather data from. Is it from Accuweather ? How do you include cities not found in the list ? Thanks.

You need to find your closest location.
There aren't stations in every city.
Also you drag and swipe your screens for moving htem

Thanks for the reply. But that's not what I expected. It's clear now that Desire takes weather data from Accuweather. I remember when I was using WM (Jade) some cities are not listed by HTC (especially the small cities), but data actually exist in the main Accuweather database. (e.g. Labuan is not listed in Wildfire but actually listed in the main Accuweather dbase). These cities can actually be added by modifying/adding to weather.xml file. I am not sure what file is used in (Android) Wildfire. Does anyone know ? and if so how to edit that file ? Thanks.

Sense Graphics are in the .APKs for sense,
You could modify them with a decompile tool and recompile the apk and theoretically put them back onto the device but you need full root and general knowledge of recompiling an app.
