Dear Members,

A lot of people including my self succesfully unlocked the htc chacha bootloader with the HTCDEV methode. We are verry happy with this developement. Unfortunally every one is trying to get there device rooted now. I tryed manny methodes from this forum but didn't succeed.
Is there anyone who can guide us step by step how to root htc chacha ( s-on but with an unlocked bootloader with the htcdev methode )?
Thx!

There's no guide that it's 100% correct for S-ON yet.
Just follow this and it will work: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1184118
The CWM Recovery won't install like it says, you have to extract the image and flash it with fastboot.
Read the last few pages from the other topics, there are others that succeeded (including me).

You can check the Tweet screenshot on adlx's post where HTC stated that Status was included.

In theory and in practice ChaCha and Status are the same. There are a few hardware differences (the radio for example, since US uses a different GSM bandwidth).
