How to root android 2.2.1 with HBOOT 1.01?

14 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

Hi there all

I just got a wildfire with android 2.2.1 and HBOOT 1.01 and I can't root it with Unrevoked3. the program just stays in "Waiting for device..." state and won't do anything. I googled a lot, and it seems that this version cannot be rooted, yet. but I saw someone recommending a shipped ruu of eclair (2.1) and then rooting from there. is that the only way?

I visited http://shipped-roms.com/shipped/Buzz/ but I can't decide what to download, which one should I download?

any help is well appreciated :huh:

No, this wont work.

There may be a way to downgrade from 2.2 to 2.1 but the HBOOT will remain the same.

Yes, as per today there is no "software" method to root Wildfire with HBOOT 1.01

There is no way to downgrade that HBOOT either

Someone over at XDA managed to downgrade the Android version from 2.2 to 2.1 using a RUU BUT THE HBOOT remains the same so still can't be rooted

The problem can be solved however by using an XTC clip(hardware) which will wipe all security data (S58) meaning you will get S-OFF, super CID and unlock.. and of course the device can be easily rooted then

THE GOOD NEWS

Paul fell into a phone4u trap yesterday and got the Wildfire with HBOOT 1.01 :(

He does have the XTC clip but hopefully he will come up with a more accessible solution for the masses :(

Well, I don't think there has been much news from them recently, unfortunately.

Hi

If you don't mind me asking, is this all speculation regarding the XTC Clip or has someone managed to downgrade the HBOOT version on a Wildfire using one? (and have they written down what they did?)

I know someone with a Wildfire, and I know a man who unlocks phones who says that he has an XTC Clip. He only knew about unlocking networks, but I'm hoping that he'll let me borrow his Clip for 10 minutes for a small fee. So, has it been done before or is that all theoretical? Any howtos?

Thanks ;)

Also, what's S-OFF if you don't mind asking?

Edit: Okay sorry, forget the S-OFF question, a quick search of google brought lots of results, but how about using an XTC?

Possibly some good news - Unrevoked tweet from this morning?

"RT @unrevoked Wildfire folks: looks like @AlphaRevX has something coming for you guys! Kudos to those guys. GB Evo guys: no word yet; sorry."

I know this is an old thread but I can confirm that "Revolutionary" was able to unlock the bootloader, root and install CWM on a friend's old A3333 Wildfire running UK stock Voda 2.2.1 - now running CM7 very nicely
