Think i need a slap... Just opened myback and it informs me my phone is rooted :angry: so I guess I need to flash a cooked rom...

ok think i am a little confused, do I need to install a rom manager like fake flash to load a cooked rom after following this tut or can I update the rom by renaming it to update.zip on root of sd card and doing it from recovery mode?

I wish to use the root software for my HBOOT0.80 but everytime I try to download via Mediafire I get a mediafire "user is out of resources" message. I tried the download mirror and it downloads 700kb of 200+mb and claims its complete. I open it and its an incomplete file.

Anyone know where else I can locate r6-desire-root-alt.zip?

Thanks

- ONLY if the above download is not suitable - if you have a bootloader version 0.80.xxxx or below AND a current ROM of 1.21.xxx.x or below - DOWNLOAD (MediaFire) / MIRROR (ROMraid / CoBlitz) - MD5: eb2ed5bca1334cacd70e4720f5b29960

The links don't work (or ZIP corrupt)

Could you resend ?

Thanks

The alternative link is working again guys!

I just downloaded it! :angry:

Hello,

Are you speaking about "r6-desire-root-alt.zip" ?

If yes, his size is greater than 200Mo ?

I don't understand but i'm not alone to download a corrupted zip.

If you can put this file on a server, we will download it... (I'm very interresting)

Thanks

(And sorry for my english)

The size is 270.8 MByte and the checksum is the same as the one on the first page! I verified it!

Hi, I'm a noob in rooting phones but have been following a few guides here and XDA developers forum. Appreciate much of Paul's efforts. I just tried the R6 rooting method for hboot 0.80 and it worked well error free for me. I used the very same microSD card that came with my phone as the "goldcard" because I bought my phone from a local GSM service provider. I tried it without the gold card and it didn't work, it just came out with permission/signature denied error. But so far I got surprised that I don't see English USA in the locale and lost the ability to sync my contacts with my Facebook contacts after I successfully rooted my phone. The "people" can't seem to find my "friends" in facebook and always return a "connection error" a while after i pressed the refresh button. Is this an error from the ROM or from facebook? :(

I dont seem to be able to root my Telstra Desire 8183

I cant see any mention of 1.15.xxx or 1.21.xxx rom anywhere.....

No problems with creating the gold card. I tried on a 2gb and 16gb sandisk. Both worked fine.

I have tried both of the r6 items for bootloader 0.75 and 0.80 (im using windows 7 64)

I get the following error message

Erasing cache and rebooting in RUU mode...

erasing 'cache'... OKAY

... OKAY

Step 1 complete - now use the bootloader menu to enter recovery mode.

I then tried the PB99IMG.zip fastboot trick and that didnt work either. I got some message saying model id incorrect!, updatefail!

Is it possible to run RUU_Bravo_Telstra_WWE_1.15.841.14_R4_Radio_32.30.0 0.28U_4.05.00.11_123851.exe without the phone being rooted? then try the r6 method?

Would this rooting mean you can use market enabler to get access to paid apps? from a country where theres no access?

Will it cause problems when HTC desides to update Desire to Froyo?

Hi

I followed your guide and it worked well. Only thing is I have an A8183 Desire Telstra branded and after following your guide my "About Phone" screen now reads the model as being A8181 and I can't connect to Rogers Canada 3G

Any thoughts?

Hi there, I'm not a professional but I can help u with this:

on your "Desire", try to open up settings->About Phone->Software Information

Check out your build number.

And for an additional note: boot loader 0.75 usually mean u have a build number of 1.15.XXX. Correct me if I'm wrong on this.

I have tried both of the r6 items for bootloader 0.75 and 0.80 (im using windows 7 64)

I get the following error message

It seems that your "Step1" has failed. Revise the 1st post guide and make sure u didn't edit any of the zip files (I did edit mine and I came up with this error). Make sure u didn't rename/edit/relocate any of those zip files.

Or maybe you shouldn't use R6? (Not sure on this)

Is it possible to run RUU_Bravo_Telstra_WWE_1.15.841.14_R4_Radio_32.30.0 0.28U_4.05.00.11_123851.exe without the phone being rooted? then try the r6 method?
the RUU is a generic ROM. If your phone has a newer build version then it won't work. I don't think you need to do this unless you prefer to stay un-rooted or need to send the phone back for RMA or something. Edited by T3CHN0M4NC3R

Hi all,

I have tried to root my new desire with your great guide.

When I'm doing "apply sdcard: update.zip" it starts but failed with this message: "E: signature verification failed"

and after that the "installation aborted"

I'm using Windows 7 and in the command I can see that the step1 is completed but there is a part that its failed: "custom id check failed"

See the attachment

My desire is version 0.80 and rom 1.19

Can someone help me please?

Thank you

Hi There

Is there any chance to fix link "this topic" from this sentence

"You can read more about how to root and launch the CRI on your device in this topic"

When I click on it it does not take me in right place. Instead being able to read part about rooting a CRI launching I'm being transfered to latest android news

I'm thinking about rooting so please fix it so a could proceed with my attempt :(

Or can anybody direct me to the right place

Regards Greg

Download ROM Manager and flash from there, tick the full wipe option and make a backup of your files first.

Hi All,

Thanks for the tutorial, but I cant manage to complete it OK.

I have a Telstra HTC desire with boot loader .75 and its got version 1.16

I downloaded the "r6-desire-root-alt.zip" which I believe is the correct 1

When I run step1-windows.bat I get the following

booterror.jpg

I thought maybe it would still work but when applying the update I get

Verifying update package

E:failed to verify whole-file signature

E:signature verification failed

Installation aborted

Any ideas?
