i did the command for linux and i get waiting for device. not sure what im doing wrong i had no problems running the alpharevx s-off tool

Try it as root for Linux.

sudo ./fastboot <yadda>

If you are in windows, you need to install the correct drivers. The drivers are in HTC sync. Get the correct version sync for your phone from the HTC support site, install it, then de-install it, leaving just the drivers.

I am stuck at step 3, it says waiting on device when flashing the recovery. Developer USB is enabled on my android, what am I doing wrong? I also tried to boot in to bootloader and have it connected with USB but nothing happened.

Edit: I just need to select Fastboot then it installed the recovery. I am now in the Clock work recovery but anything I select shows the tophat and does nothing, I can go back to the menu though.

I need to do more research on Clockwork I guess :)

Edit again: Pressing the scrollbutton on the wildfire did the trick, sorry about noobing this thread, hopefully this will help other noobs :p

Can u please explain this step with fastboot?

In short,

  1. Download the fastboot utility linked in post #1 for your OS.
  2. If you are using Windows (boo) download and install the HTC Android USB Driver for Microsoft PC from the bottom of this page.
  3. Run the command as appropriate for your OS;
    • fastboot flash recovery /path/to/<recovery>.img (windows)
    • ./fastboot-mac recovery /path/to/<recovery>.img (mac x86)
    • ./fastboot recovery /path/to/<recovery>.img (linux)

I am a quite advanced linux user, having a first android device - HTC IS.
Still, I have trouble to follow the guide and root my IS. I follows the three steps:

1. Get fastboot at the bottom of the page here: http://developer.htc.com/adp.html
- successfull

2. Obtain clockworkmod recovery:
* HTC Incredible S recovery here:
- successful

3. fastboot flash recovery /path/to/recovery.img
- failed: I get tyhe message "< waiting for device >".

Can anyone please write his succesfull experience in full details (for a Linux user, for example). This would be very much helpfull.

Thanks.

ps: congrats to talented developers who made possible rooting htc is

    Complete tutorial

    im having the same problem, can you provide instructions on how to do it in HBOOT?
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    1.Move the fastboot shell script to sdk-tools where AdbWinApi.dll is located.
    2.Start-->Run-->write "cmd", press ENTER-->
    in command promt write
    cd C:\
    cd C:\directory\where\fastboot is located\

    3.Turn off your phone and Boot it into fastboot.
    4.Connect your usb.(It should write FASTBOOT USB on your device).
    5.In command prompt write fastboot flash recovery E:\recovery-clockwork-3.2.0.0-j_r0dd_mod-buzz.img(Replace "E:\" with your clockworkmod image directory).
    6.Now in cmd write fastboot reboot
    7.You should be done now :)(When using clockwork mod recovery on wildfire use trackball button to select and Power button to go back )
    Hope this helps :D

    For anyone (like me) stuck after alpharevx: this info from another thread was life saver to me:

    1. download the clockworkmod recovery file from link in the first post of this thread. Extract the contents of zip (u will see a file named "recovery.img")

    2. Download the android flasher here

    3. Run Android Flasher, and select "Recovery". (It's one of the options on the left side). Navigate to the location of your recovery.img, and select it. The phone should switch itself to fastboot, then install clockworkmod. It then goes right into clockworkmod, and you can follow the steps listed to install the root.

    Worked for me on HTC Aria with stock 2.2

    I found the easiest method was to use HBOOT:

    • Copy the PG32IMG.zip to the root of your SD Card
    • Turn off your phone
    • Press the power button and volume down button to boot into HBOOT
    • It'll look for .zips and find the one you put there.
    • Select yes to update, give it a few seconds then it'll tell you to reboot.
    • ClockworkMod should now be installed.
