I’m trying to put a new recovery and a KitKat ROM on a Desire, which is apparently rooted but won’t respond to any of the usual S-OFF methods, i.e. Unrevoked and Alphrev’s boot CD. The phone’s configuration as per its bootloader screen is:
Aug 10 2010, 17:52:18
Alpharev’s boot CD just hangs after a time, Unrevoked says it can’t get root, and revolutionary fails too. (I suppose Unrevoked must have partially succeded once, since the device is rooted, has CWM 126.96.36.199 recovery, and is running a custom ROM. But I can’t flash a new hboot, radio, or recovery since security is still on.) Is there anything else I can try?
