Recommended Posts

This thread is the same thread that i posted over at XDADevelopers, here is the link to the original thread:

http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2221039

I probably won't ever update this, I am however uploading the rom as one ZIP file so people don't get confused.

NONE OF THIS IS MY WORK, IT PURELY THIS GUIDE (http://tau.shadowchild.nl/attn1/?cat=6) SIMPLIFIED TO SOME EXTENT. with parts that werent included in the guide added to the guide.

PREFACE:

Download this and unzip it somewhere (reccommend C:\ root folder): http://www.multiupload.nl/MXW371YT87

Full HTC Desire HD guide to root, S-OFF/Sim Unlock

1. Unlock the bootloader at http://htcdev.com/bootloader/

2. Copy your Unlock_code.bin file that you got in the email to the ace-tools folder.

3. Download rooted stock rom: http://www.multiupload.nl/20T9R21IGY

(link to rom thread: http://forum.xda-dev...ht=rooted stock )

copy the ROM zip file to your SD card.

4. Install recovery image:

Open cmd and type:

• cd <the directory of the ace-tools folder> (eg cd C:\ace-tools)

Ensure your phone is connected to your PC and then boot into bootloader, then navigate to fastboot.

In cmd:

• fastboot recovery1.img

5. boot into recovery through bootloader and Install the ROM you placed on the SD card, (via install zip fileselect the rom zip)

6. Reboot the phone, ensure the rom is working fine and you have root access you can test this by turning on usb debugging then:

• Adb shell

• Su

You should see the $ turn into a #. If this happens, congrats you have root access.

Then type this:

• Exit

Then again:

• Exit

Then:

• Adb push boot.img /data/local/tmp

• adb shell dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22 of=/data/local/tmp/boot.img

• adb pull /data/local/tmp/boot.img

• adb push goldcard /data/local/tmp

• adb shell chmod 775 /data/local/tmp/goldcard

• adb shell cat /sys/class/mmc_host/mmc2/mmc2:*/cid

take note of the string of numbers and letters that appear.

then:

• adb shell /data/local/tmp/goldcard -c <string of numbers and letters should go here> -o /data/local /tmp/goldcard.img

• adb shell dd if=/data/local/tmp/goldcard.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk1

• adb push misc_version /data/local/tmp

• adb shell chmod 775 /data/local/tmp/misc_version

• adb shell /data/local/tmp/misc_version -s 1.11.111.1

7. If this is all fine boot into bootloader again.

From bootloader go to fastboot.

Go back to the cmd window on your PC from earlier, type in:

• Fastboot oem lock

Then type:

• fastboot oem rebootRUU

• fastboot flash zip firmware.zip

• fastboot reboot-bootloader

unlock the bootloader again using the Unlock_code.bin you got from HTC:

• fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin

then flash boot.img in ace-tools folder:

• fastboot flash boot boot.img

next:

• fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

8. boot to recovery again then:

• adb push gfree /tmp/

• adb shell chmod 775 /tmp/gfree

• adb shell /tmp/gfree -f

reboot to bootloader and you should see it says S-OFF at the top of the screen, if It does congrats your done.

• Su

Am stuck here, since when I enter Su in cmd it says "permission denied"

Up till that point I beleive everything went ok. My software version seems to indicate that I am using the rooted rom and my bootloader is unlocked. Please explain why I can't complete this step. The people at xda couldn't / wouldn't help me. I am far from a "noob" but the steps aren't going as expected.
