I created this topic for all, who didn't hear about it.

Upgrading your Wildfire to the new HBOOT and 2.21 Froyo (over the air) will result in total immunity to the tools like Unrevoked3. This means, that after upgrading you will not be able to root your phone, push clockworkmod, custom roms, and even if it was rooted before, it unroots and you will not be able to restore 2.1 from backup.

Those, who haven't done any upgrades, can flash a safe ROM or any other Froyo ROM on the rooted phone from sticky threads.

But those, who were successfully moved to the official 2.2 Froyo, have 3 solutions:

1. Wait patiently for the Unrevoked update, which will root the upgraded hboot. But right now (04 Jan 2011) Unrevoked team do not have Wildfires for testing, so development for this phone is suspended for some (long) time.

2. Downgrade. It is actually possible for conservative people, who liked 2.1.
Unfortunately, i must warn everybody, that this method will not make your phone rootable again because HBOOT doesn't downgrade.

3. Connect to the development and help others. Currently, we need ideas and, first of all, your comments. Any news about rooting upgraded Wildfire are welcome here.

I think you mean 04 Jan 2011 not 04 Dec 2011, hopefully by then 2.2 will have been rooted!

What about donating the Unrevoked team with an e-mail:
Donated xx$ for wildfire root.

So they can buy one/more wildfires?

If you ran unrevoked forever on your Wildfire before installing the official Froyo 2.2, would you have a rooted Foyo Wildfire?

CoaBalboa, I think that you misunderstood my post.

I am still on 1.37 rooted and am looking to upgrade to Foyo but only if I can root it. i.e. it is not too late.

Unrevoked forever is a different product to Unrevoked and my query still stands unanswered:

"If you ran unrevoked forever on your Wildfire before installing the official Froyo 2.2, would you have a rooted Foyo Wildfire?"
