Rooting and Unlocking the HTC ChaCha?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone made any progress in rooting and unlocking the HTC ChaCha? I like the form factor for this phone, and it's relatively affordable, but I want a phone where I could install CyanogenMod and also have it working for multiple pay-as-you-go european sims.

Hi guys,

first of all sorry for posting this request in new thread..

actually i am not able to find the relevant solution (i could say that my searching skills are not so good)....

I need to update my os from 2.3 to 4.0

steps tried:

first of all ...all posts suggested me to root the phone....

1. tried to root the phone using DooMLoRD_v4_ROOT-zergRush-busybox-su but it says failed.

2. tried to root the phone using htcsupertoolv3 failed.

now i have installed android development kit on the computer and have htc sync latest version installed so i am able to communicate to the device still the problem persists.

i tried to use the site htcdev for bootloader and selected the device htc chacha and asia india there it says *HBOOT update required.

now my device details are

still i went ahead and tried to run the htc bootloader and got the message

your ROM version is not the latest version please upgrade to 1.57.720.1 to apply this RUU to be able to unlock your bootloader.

on your phone go to menu > settings > about phone > software updates > check now

i did try to update but it says no updates available.

please advice the next steps to be followed....
