Thanks for clarifying that. As you can imagine I am a noob. It would be awesome if the brief procedure by jc36 could be expanded upon into an exact step-by-step (hand-holding) for all the noobs out there. Jumping back and forth between the forum links can get confusing -- especially some of the posts are old... leaving one wonder if the instructions are outdated etc!
May be I will do it if I get through this safely....
I need a bit more help please!
I have had the legend for ages and wanted to breath new life into it. I am using a ssensation as my everyday phone and that was a doddle to root compared to this!
I have gotten as far as flashing recovery. I dl'd the S-OFF .img from here and placed it in my adb folder. I tried running the adb command and only got as far as
"fastboot flash recovery" when
"error: neither -p product specified or ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT set" shows up.
Any help? the HTCdev and Supertools seemed to go flawlessly for me. My HBOOT was 1.01 and HTCdev changed it to 1.02. It also now has *** LOCKED (OOW) *** at the top. I'm still S-ON too. What's going wrong? There is no su app in the app drawer like there was when I rooted my sensation. do I have to start over? any help would be great!
Thanks Jc36, i have done step one and two per your phost and i believe my phone is rooted ( i can installl titanium root version and it works fiNE). i'd appreciate someone clarify jc36's third step for me (aka noob)
