Yesterday Modaco promised to promulgation the manual to stem your HTC Desire. Well, today is the bounteous day. If you’re primed to stem your Desire and release its flooded potential, study the manual after the break.

thumb 550 Desire rooted 540x360

Read this full matter – it contains a ton of multipurpose aggregation as substantially as the manual and downloads!

Remember that if you ingest this guide, you do so all at your possess risk!

Welcome to my pass on how to stem the HTC Desire – this is a ‘first cut’ of the guide, and module be civilised / reinforced as instance progresses!


This pass module earmark you to stem your HTC Desire, provided it has a bootloader edition of 0.75 or below. To analyse this, invoke soured your device, then invoke it backwards on with the ‘back’ key held. On the ordinal distinction in naif book you module wager HBOOT- and then a number. Provided this is 0.75 or below, this pass should impact for you.

O2 FRG devices are currently transport with a 0.80 bootloader, and as much cannot be unmoving using this pass at this time.

Desire rooting protection

Back in the primeval life of Android, rooting was easy. You had individual options – you could winkle clog via the bootloader, you could winkle an field bootloader, you could ingest essence exploits – there were some structure of effort the baritone verify admittance to your figure that – in impartiality – I conceive we as stipendiary customers are entitled to. As instance has progressed however, the manufacturers hit prefabricated things harder and harder. The Desire is not a direct phone to root, for some reasons, including…

* a ‘perfected bootloader’ that doesn’t earmark experience or booting of some images (even HTC subscribed ones)
* a RUU winkle impact that does not earmark downgrading of the bootloader to early versions
* a essence (that as ease does not hit publically acquirable source) that as ease has no famous exploits
* a newborn endorsement method previously seen on the HTC Tattoo that protects key partitions from having indite access. Even with SU access, it is not doable to indite to the boot, recovery
or grouping partitions.

In reality, the options for rooting a figure this bonded are limited. Even if a essence utilise were found, the key partitions would ease be unwritable, performance su admittance useless. This was circumvented on the Tattoo rattling cleverly, using a limited module come from a private Qualcomm datasheet, ease this aggregation is not ease acquirable for the Snapdragon chipset utilised in the Desire (and indeed haw never move the open domain).

And so the stem impact becomes a impact of methodically inquiring every doable saucer of danger on the device, hunting for the slightest Chinese in the armour. I institute one and we’re swing it to beatific use! The downside is that it’s not as cushy or as pretty as rooting a figure that is actually DESIGNED to be reachable at the minimal level, much as the Nexus One.

Shame on you HTC for feat to much extra lengths (but that’s added news for added day).

What this stem impact provides and does not provide

The stem impact will…

* winkle your figure with a new, generic 1.15.405.4 supported storage that has Superuser access
* exhibit you how to move the feat ikon in future, allowing you to winkle update zips

The stem impact module NOT…

* enable you to winkle your figure with a bespoken feat ikon that crapper be launched easily by meet retentive downbound the intensity downbound fix when powering on
* enable you to hit indite admittance to the /system construction in connatural ingest of the device

Both of these limitations are existence worked on of course.


In visit to rank this guide, you requirement the following…

* a HTC Desire
* a Windows organisation (sorry, I am disagreeable to vanish dependencies on limited OS’)
* a UNIX (a liveCD should do) or OSX organisation (sorry, I am disagreeable to vanish dependencies on limited OS’)
* a microUSB cable
* a microSD bill (to be prefabricated into a ‘goldcard’)
* the downloads below
* balls of poise (actually, I meet prefabricated that up)


To be primed for the guide, download the mass items…

* the ‘test ruu’ – DOWNLOAD / MIRROR – MD5: f1981b26b90b97aea395d2b30909a23f
* the ‘push files’ – DOWNLOAD / MIRROR- MD5: 9ee301b702078dd1842bd1c67e552f6e
* the ‘rooted update’ – DOWNLOAD / MIRROR – MD5: 44f2614452ddf777cab9115e2174a91a

Once you hit those on your machine, you’re primed to start!

The guide

Follow ended these steps, one by one and at the modify of it you’ll hit a unmoving Desire with the stylish ROM.

Note: This impact module pass1 your figure and there is currently no choice to patronage your figure storage before you start.

* Make your microSD bill into a goldcard by mass these manual (it’s a beatific intent to backwards up the table of your bill first!)
* Copy the ‘rooted update’ you downloaded above to the stem of your SD card, before exchange it into your device.
* Turn soured your HTC desire, then invoke it backwards on with the ‘back’ fix held down. You’ll wager ‘FASTBOOT’ cursive on the concealment in a flushed box.
* Connect the phone to your computer, then separate the ‘test ruu’ that you downloaded above (it haw verify a brief patch to start). Let the update rank and invoke your figure soured as presently as it reaches the plan wizard. If you requirement USB drivers, you crapper encounter them as conception of the HTC Sync install.
* Your figure should today be off. Unplug the figure from your computer. Turn it on again patch retentive downbound the ‘volume down’ fix this time. The concealment module countenance kindred to before, but module feature ‘HBOOT’ instead of ‘FASTBOOT’. Use the intensity buttons and the noesis fix to superior the ‘RECOVERY’ option. You should then wager a concealment with a flushed polygon – at this point, block it into your UNIX or OSX computer.
* Now you requirement to unzip the ‘push files’ fix that you downloaded above. When you hit ended so, you’ll wager a enter titled ‘recovery-linux.sh’ or ‘recovery-mac.sh’. Run the one pertinent to your operative grouping and the concealment of your figure should modify to pass the naif feat ikon menu.
* In the feat ikon (moving around using the optical trackball), superior ‘Wipe -> Wipe accumulation /factory reset’ then ‘Flash fix from sdcard’ and opt the unmoving update. Confirm with the trackball and the update impact module begin. It’ll verify a lowercase while, so go attain a pleasant prize of tea.
* When the winkle has finished, reboot, and you are DONE!
