Well, I'm not sure that I'm competent to compete in that arena; I'm brand new to Android, if not cracking and programming. Plus, it would be nice to work together, rather than in competition!

I have just written to HTC to request the kernel source code for the Wildfire, which should help in breaking the NAND protection (the next step) because we can then compile kernel modules.

I've also posted, over at XDA developers, the modified source code for the exploit to give a temporary root shell.

Best,

Martin

Martin, your exploit didnt provide me with root shell

$ ./mart_expo

[*] Android local root exploid © The Android Exploid Crew

[*] Modified by Martin Eve for Wildfire Stage 1 root

[+] Using basedir=/sqlite_stmt_journals, path=/sqlite_stmt_journals/exploid/mart_expo

[+] opening NETLINK_KOBJECT_UEVENT socket

[+] sending add message ...

[*] Try to invoke hotplug now, clicking at the wireless

[*] settings, plugin USB key etc.

[*] You succeeded if you find /system/bin/rootshell.

[*] GUI might hang/restart meanwhile so be patient.

[1] + Stopped (signal) ./mart_expo

$ id

Some one wanted the HTC Wildfire - 2.6.29 kernel source code?

Here it is.

Would be great if someone could test this.

As regards the exploit not giving root: you have to run the generated rootshell binary in the sqlite_stmt_journals dir.

I plan to modify the soft root next week to allow running apps as Su even though this won't fix nand protection.

first you have to push the downloaded files in the sqlite_stmt_journals directory via "adb push" then you have to follow the same instructions on the guide =)

and if you have the permession denied with the command ./exploid then write chmod 755 exploid and ./exploid again =)

when the guide says toggle wi-fi on and off, you must do it with your phone on the preferences or with a widget

Need help!

To back at shell,should I run "exit" or others?

I got wrong like this "adb:not found."

If I run "exit" twice and restart adb shell, it shows "mkdir failed for binmount, Read-only file system"

Hi all,

I've now modded this into a 1-click version.

See: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=757191

Talking to unrEVOked guys about defeating NAND, more news as it comes in.

Best,

Martin

I keep getting Error: Device Not Found at the adb install SoftRoot.apk stage. I've tried in all three modes, charging, USB drive and HTC Sync mode. What have I done wrong?

Hi, you haven't got adb setup correctly; go search for other guides on how to get this working, and then come back.

If you can't get "adb shell" to work, then you can't install this root.

I copied the file to the SD card and ran it from there. I will see about adb. Barnacle says it is working but doesn't show up in my list of available wireless networks :D

Today it shows up wtf. Also tried SetCpu which seems to run fine but can only switch between 480 and 528 when I use the default settings. Maybe if I had specified some manual settings I would be able to overclock. Didn't want to risk it though.
