I've just got a brand new Desire from O2 Ireland (branded) with HBOOT version 0.83. I tried to root the device using unrEVOked. It partially worked...
I have superuser permissions on my apps menu. However, I can't get into recovery. When I try to get into recovery, the screen just goes black.
I believe this may be something to do with possibly having a new SLCD screen, which causes black screens.
Does anyone know if it's possible to root this new HBOOT 0.83 phone? Can I install a recovery that works, or at the very least revert to stock recovery?
And if it's not possible to root at all, can I upgrade to stock android 2.2. (O2 Ireland haven't released the update yet; checking for updates in the phone results in it saying there are no updates available, even thought the phone is running Android 2.1)
Thanks in advance for any help.
