Thanks, just giving that a go...

So I'm rooted. However, now my phone complains about low memory? What stuff that was installed by unrEVOked can be safely deleted? I'm not interested at the moment in installing other roms, just in controling some apps better and have full control over the phone. Hoped I could remove some standard HTC apps (like the Stock app) but until now I'm not very succesfull

USB Driver problem
I had the same issue as several others have reported.

I followed the steps correctly (with the exception that my HBOOT 0.93 does not have the 5th menu item, HBOOT USB).

When I plugged in the phone (Charge Only, USB Debugging), unrevoked3 just sat there, saying "Waiting for device..."

Fortunately, I also had the same success reported by others. I unplugged my phone, installed HTC Sync (complete), then immediately uninstalled it.

I have did figure one thing out, tho.

After I originally loaded the HBOOT drivers from unrevoked, Device Manager showed "Android HBOOT Driver" while USB was connected and the phone was in HBOOT menu.
However, when I rebooted the phone, Device Manager only identified "ADB", and contained the Yellow Exclamation mark of unknown device. I think this will be a key for anyone trying this; if you've never installed HTC Sync, then you'll get this result, and unrevoked3 won't find the device.

After uninstalling HTC Sync, when I plugged the phone in, several USB drivers installed themselves (the result screen is attached). The one that says "My HTC" was the one that previously said "ADB".

During the unrevoked reflashing process, there were multiple USB drivers installing themselves, including USB Mass Storage.

Hope this helps some others

hi guys. after i plug in my desire in its bootloader mode, in my device manager i have already see Android Bootloader Interface is listed under Android Phone. I haven't done anything yet. So does this mean i can proceed to rooting my phone?

i was struggled during the past months because i wanted to root my phone (because i need more memory and i'd like a2sd) but i had no chance to backup my datas because my phone is (of course) not rooted.

reading this thread i realized that using unrevoked all my datas and apps won't be affected by the rooting procedure... is it true??

the second question is: does it work on xp64bit?

please answer YES to both question so i'll root it right now!!!

i find it's easiest to just load a linux livecd of some kind and then run the linux version of unrevoked, much less of a hassle than screwing with the custom hboot drivers in windows.
