    I need some help on Rooting my HTC Desire i tried some things on XDA developers but still no change

    i tried unrevoked3 but it gives me an error that the firmware is to new? im running Android v2.2.2
    anyway to fix this?

    this is the error:

    Error: failed to get root. Is your firmware too new?

    According to your other posts, you and your buddies are "working on some JB's" that you aren't gonna share. Thought rooting a THC would be a piece of piss for you? Can't you use Gingerbreak for Froyo?

    Check this link:
    http://androidforums...ber-2011-a.html

    That guide will help you with the whole process (s-off/root/superuser and so on)


    After you have completed that guide and your phone is rooted and s-off.
    Make sure you get a better recovery tool than amonra/clockworkmod:

    Follow this guide to get the much better recovery tool:

    Stuff like Gingerbreak doesn't work for HTCs, they have extra protections (S-ON) to prevent "simple" rooting methods. You generally need to unlock the bootloader (and sometime get S-OFF) before you can root.

    It was a while ago, but I used Gingerbreak on my wife's HTC and it ran through normally from stock. Like I said, it was a while ago and as soon as I saw 2.2.2 I thought of Gingerbreak.

    They haven't always had S-ON on their phones, but the last couple of years I think they have. It makes them a bit less convenient to root.
