mine was s-on with boot loader 1.12.720.3 same as most indian htc salsa
download the file adb fastboot and adbwin from below and unzip to
c:\android
and ph11img.zip from this post
http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...1&d=1316354019

copy the ph11img.zip to ur memory card
boot into ur bootloader holding power and volume down..
let the phone search for the zip file and when it asks to update or not select yes and let it update..
now u have the boot loader supported by htcdev.com
nw remove the ph11img file from ur sdcard



goto bootloader again select fastboot thn connect ur phone to pc
goto http://htcdev.com/bootloader/
select ur device as htc salsa
follow the steps directly from step 7
and if u do it correctly ull have a new tab in the hboot saying unlocked...

but it wld still indicate s-on
don worry u can nw easly have root acess nw

be sure to use the fastboot given by me

now first u need to get cmw recovery 5

follow this post to download recovery.rar
unrar it to android dir in c to get recovery.img

http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...4&d=1326296914

while ur phone is in fast boot type the command fasboot flash recovery recovery.img

now voila u got cmw5 recovery
to check pop the battery out again goto hboot
select recovery and a new screen will come with the new cmw5

paste root.zip to ur sd card which ull download from

http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...2&d=1316354019

now in recovery select install from zip and select root.zip and select yes
now u have root acess

ull c a app called super user in ur phone

nw to increase ur internal size


go into cmw5 recovery goto advance then select to partition ur mrmy card
u must create 2 partitions
1) fat32
2)ext3

the size depends on your requirements
once dis is done

go to cwm recovery again, wipe data, cache and dakvik cache. Reboot.

Install busybox, and choose the version v1.17.1

now go to cwm recovery again.

flash htc-data2sd sdcard
reboot
and vooila u have increased ur internal memory space

Reboot

ext2 is slow.....ext3 is better and more stable and you tend to not get force close, ext4 is the ultimate!

thats because with version 1.07 you need to go directly to htcdev for the update...it will update that way easier.....
