Great Paul,

Worked for me :-)

Next step is to grab a proper BT stack from the N1 since HTC screwed it up on the Desire ... its actually NOT them same bluez version as the N1.
Hence SPP profile NOT working on the Desire. It does work on the Legend but apparently the BT stack on the Legend is still different from the N1 and the Desire .... sigh

Thanks a million,
Serge

I waited so long for this and i still can't do it! After dropping my phone in a drink there are 3 broken keys... The down volume key (which is needed lol) and the whole trackpad has given up (which is also needed!) oh and my search key...not so important.

Still works great otherwise. I guess i'll have to try and fix my phone before i can take advantage of this.

This sounds great Paul, thanks. Have a few questions though (Desire is my first android device):

- Warranty, Its from TMobile - But, does this void the warranty? I'm asking because I'm hearing that it doesnt and in other places that it does
- What can go wrong - can i damage my phone beyond repair :huh:?
- Will Full Arabic support be possible?
- Gold card - Have an old 1GB sd card, assume thats fine?
- The use of fedora through windows virtual pc - that work? (got my test server sorted out there)

May have more questions since i'm the paranoid type :/

Got the solution:

You must do it as root in terminal, otherwise it's not working. So type adb-linux kill-server and then adb-linux start-server and then do ./recovery-linux.sh it will work :huh:

Well, I'm getting the permission error, but it's not related to su in Linux. I'm not getting to the recovery screen correctly. I'm getting a black screen with a red triangle when choosing RECOVERY :P

EDIT:
My bad!
I needed to kill the server and then restart it as su, and then replug the phone to the computer.
THANKS GUYS!

If you get an insufficient permissions error in Linux...

./adb-linux kill-server
sudo ./adb-linux start-server
sudo ./recovery-linux.sh

That's good and then you have to go to terminal and type sudo su and hit enter and then type ./recovery-linux.sh in the dir where your files are.

Copy the 'rooted update' you downloaded above to the root of your SD card, before replacing it into your device.


In this step. do I just copy the downloaded zip file into the root of the SD card or do I extract the zip file into the root of the SD card.
