Is there any chance of seeing root coming to the device soon?

I can't flash stock roms either for some reason, so I'm relying on this :) - Never mind, I was being an idiot and sticking myself in a bootloop in fastboot. lol.

am i right in thinking that my attempt at rooting the wildfire aint gonna happen quite yet with the current guides out there then?

i've just got this on contract with three and spotted pauls guide on several websites, so spent a good few hours trying to get the update to work, just to get file verification errors thrown back at me! :angry: :D

hboot version is 0.80.0003 by the way, does that mean i'll still be able to root it or not?

Looking forward to this being rooted. Since my Pulse's USB port broke I can't use custom ROMS so my hopes now lie with the Wildfire.

eagerly awaiting Paul's new results myself aswell here :angry:

in the meantime, is there already a custom rom out to flash the wildfire with after root ?

Basically, I want to get rid of sense and preferably of course go straight to 2.2

also, does anyone know where to get the official rom that is currently on the wildfire ( 2.1update1 ) so that if at some time I want to revert back to stock, I can flash it on again.

thanks for answering
