what i want to know is will any gold card work for this? i got a gold card i was using for my htc magic a couple of months ago and am wondering if i can use it for the desire or do i have to go through the process again.

Thanks in advance

Just to be sure, will this enable me to install "Market Enabler" http://code.google.c...market-enabler/
So I can finally purchase applications on the market.

I guess no, because you don't have write access to the system partition as soon as the phone booted. Only way to access the system partition is during recovery image boot.

An idea came to my mind, why not use layerfs or similar system to "overmount" the system partition? Paul?

HTH,

Patric

Hi,

First of all, thank for all the great work you've put into rooting the Desire :huh:
Now, some questions (that as far as I've read throughout this thread, haven't been answered)

1) I suppose rooting the device voids its warranty. However, in the case of needing the warranty, is it possible to revert back to the original ROM, as if nothing has been modified, so it can be considered "untouched" and be eligible for warranty?

2) This one's been asked above, but you haven't answered: if *something* were to go wrong during the rooting process (either my mistake or another kind of problem), will I somehow be able to "recover" the device? As in, re-flash it to the original ROM, which would, you know, be working? :P

3) About the goldcard part.. Do I need a separate microSD card or can I use the one I'll actually be using with the phone? (Yes, I'm aware it needs to be 100% wiped, but this is not an issue).

4) The least important one: when doing the "Wipe/Factory reset" step, will it reset the device to the Factory settings, as if I'd have done this the usual way?

"if not you can easily flash back to generic stock"
I'm completely new to Android and HTC - but exactly how is that done?
Not that I'll ever need it unless Google releases A2SD in a new Android version, and we actually get it on HTC Desire.

just to mention, while I had been able to run adb and all that comes with it properly in Ubuntu, running in a Virtualbox, in recovery mode doing this, the adb device came up as nothing other than a whole bunch of ?????s and "no permissions" in the other column, rather than "recovery". I've since located a mac and am on the very last part.

at this point, I'm at "Verifying update package...", how long should that take, it's currently been a good while, already about 10 minutes. should it be taking this long? should anything else be happening at this stage?
