Welcome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not taking credit for any files or programs here I just simply constructed a full guide on how to downgrade etc. for noobs and also people that is struggeling like I did .
Please be warned that you might damage your phone and also that your waranty voids after you unlocked your bootloader so I don't take any responsibility !!!!! But be assured if you follow my instructions you'll just be fine !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It took me 5 weeeeeeeekssss to find all of these and figure everything out so be greatfull !!!!
I'm going to tell you excacly how i did it !

First things first ....
Copy Cyanogen mod 7 android 2.3.3.zip to your sd card
Open "HTC DESIRE S - All in one toolkit" and run it.Remember you should be in bootloader for this ( volume down + power ) and the navigate with arrow keys to fastboot and select it using power button. Follow all the instructions in the lefthand corner on how to unlock your bootloader
Next you have to flash custom recovery . Look in the right hand corner and select TWRP 2.4.0.0 and let it flash.Sometimes it will say your phone is not detected just exit that command promt and the next command window will flash it.
Now you have to go to your recovery ... While in fastboot select bootloader and then recovery ... A htc logo will appear and about 10 sec from that an TWRP logo .
Go to
After all that is done go to install select zip and find the cyanogen mod 7... .zip you pasted earlier on your sd card and then flash it . wait untill it completes.
Now you have to reboot your phone look for reboot in the TWRP menu and select reboot then bootloader . Once your in bootloader again go to the folder where all my tools are located that I provided for you .
Go to android tools and press shift then right click and select open command window here .
copy and paste the following :

fastboot flash boot boot.img

After its completed select the reboot option using your arrow keys.
Wait until cyanogen mod 7 fully boots up
Now go to settings > applications > developer options and enable usb debugging
After that go to android tools folder again and open the command window again paste the following :

adb push C:\downsaga\misc_version /data/local/tmp

adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/misc_version

adb shell

su

cd /data/local/tmp

./misc_version -s 1.27.405.6

exit

exit

exit

adb reboot-bootloader

After that the phone will be in bootloader again already in fastboot and then just type :

Fastboot oem lock

After that the phone will be in bootloader again already in fastboot
Now open the ruu I have provided for you and run it until it completes and whalah !!! You have hboot 0.98.0002
Now if you want to root it use the superoneclick app I provided and after that s-off also your bootloader with revolutionary i provided just follow the clear instructions(Your phone must be turned on and not in bootloader ! also remember to turn on usb debugging again !!!! )

after all of thos when you reboot into bootloader things will look like :

-Revolutionary-
SAGA PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
HBOOT-6.98.1002
RADIO-38.03.02.11_M
eMMC-boot
(current date),(current time)

Wink Edited Version
I just wanted to post similar one but You did it for me. Anyway i edited it cause it was a mess Still I wonder will this work without GoldCard on any phone...

This is a simple guide for newcomers to Android. Please be warned that you might damage your phone and also that your waranty voids after you unlock your bootloader and the author doesn't take any responsibility for that. Still things shouldn't go wrong.

Link for the necessary files.

1. Copy Cyanogen mod 7 android 2.3.3.zip to your SD card.

2. Go here and click THANKS button for hasoon2000. This is his tool and he takes all credit for his hard work.

3. Now open "HTC DESIRE S - All in one toolkit" and double click on Desire S.exe.

4. Follow all the instructions in the left hand corner on how to unlock your bootloader

5. Now we are going to flash recovery. Look in the right hand corner, select TWRP 2.4.0.0 and click Flash Recovery button and follow the instructions.

6. It's time to go to the recovery. While in fastboot select bootloader and then recovery. A htc logo will appear and then TWRP should start.

7. When you're in the recovery MAKE BACKUP. Then go to Wipe section. Now wipe these four: Cache, Dalvik Cache, Factory Reset, System. After that go back, click Install and select Cyanogenmod 7.zip you placed on your SD card. Slide to flash and wait.

8. After flash is complete go back to TWRP main menu and select Reboot and then Bootloader.

9. When you're in bootloader go to the folder where all my tools are located.
Go to android tools and press shift then right click and select open command window here.

10. In the Command Window copy and paste the following :

fastboot flash boot boot.img

11. After it's completed select the reboot option using your arrow keys.
Wait until cyanogenmod 7 boots up. This is first boot so it may take a while. Don't get nervous.

12. When Cyanogenmod 7 will start go to Settings > Applications > Developer options. Enable USB Debugging

13. After that go to android tools folder again and open the command window and paste the following :

adb push C:\downsaga\misc_version /data/local/tmp

adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/misc_version

adb shell

su

cd /data/local/tmp

./misc_version -s 1.27.405.6

exit

exit

exit

adb reboot-bootloader

14. When your phone will be in bootloader in fastboot USB mode type:

Fastboot oem lock

15. After that the phone will give you Warning. It's fine. Stay in bootloader in fastboot USB.

16. Open the RUU I have provided and run it until it completes flashing.

17. You have hboot 0.98.0002 now. Use the superoneclick app I provided.

18. After that run revolutionary tool and follow the instructions. After it's complete reboot into bootloader. Things should look like this:

-Revolutionary-
SAGA PVT SHIP S-OFF RL
HBOOT-6.98.1002
RADIO-38.03.02.11_M
eMMC-boot

Thanks for this guide. I've seem to have run into an issue though...

It been 20-30 minutes now, and still booting. Is it now time to get nervous?

Yes it's too long. Try connecting your device to PC and in command line (adb) type: adb reboot recovery.
If this doesn't work try Three button reset. Push power, volume up and down simultaneously. If this doesn't work too follow these steps
1. Connect phone to USB
2. Remove battery
3. Phone will still be running
4. Shutdown PC to cut the USB power

Now boot into recovery (hold vol down and click power). I'm sorry this is partially my fault. I just switched my brain off during writing this assuming this was right and n00b proof . It isn't. There is one more step before flashing Cyanogenmod that you may not be familiar with. When you manage to get into recovery go to Wipe section. Now wipe these four: Cache, Dalvik Cache, Factory Reset, System. After that flash (install) cyanogenmod again. This time it will boot. I'm updating guide right now and I'm sorry for your stress and inconvenience. If it works please report back.

Thanks for the anwser, although I managed to solve this shortly after posting last nigth. Basicly I just removed the battery break the loop, wiped data and cache and reflashed.

Yes, I will have to ID myself as somewhat of a noob on the andoid-front and want to point out some parts of the guide that aint 100% noob-proof. A couple of times I was actually forced to think for myself. That's outrageous!

1. Place the folder "Desire_S_All-In-One_Kit_v2.0" at your C:/ root and run the .exe from there. Won't work baked into some other directory I believe.

2. Replace "adb push C:\downsaga\misc_version /data/local/tmp" with "adb push misc_version /data/local/tmp". Otherwise you will be looking in the wrong dir the way this rest of this guide is set up.

3. At step 11. If stuck on loop, follw these steps:
A. boot into recovery
B. wipe data/factory reset
C. wipe cache
D. go into partitions menu, and format boot and format system. (I skiped this part this time)
E. install rom zip from sdcard
F. reboot

4. At the end of step 13 there seem to be one "exit" to many. (this is just a trivial thing ofc)

5. Step 17: I had to run this one several times before it got propper rooted. What seem to make the difference was actually the in order i did things during the su test after the "successful" root. Go to your phone app-list >>superuser>>Preferences>>Automatic responce>>Allow befor you click away the warning on your computer.

I also ran all programs as admin, didnt test if it would work without, but it's generally a good idea with these things.


Remember, when you write for noobs you have to include the obvious

It's the first time i've touched this root-stuff so take this for what it is. It solved it for me, but may not always be the correct fix.

I've been wanting to root without using HTCdev, but resigned to this after beeing thrown around to some 10-15 differnet sites and guides, with missing software etc..

Now to figure out what ROM to use as this one had Sense 2.1, and why TiBu crashes when I attempt to remove bloatware. But that will have to be another story...

Thanks for the guide guys, and for providing all the software needed in one package, that's probably the most useful part for a newcomer =)

Wrong can mean two things:
1. Did you misc_version from a root/temproot environment? If you didn't have the right privileges, you can't do this step.
2. Your phone is Branded (to your carrier), you need to either choose a RUU that matches your carrier (see "+files" then RUU in my sig) or create a goldcard, which should let your phone ignore the carrier/region check.
