Rooting HTC Wildfire - need to update ROM to 2.25.1107.3
I guess I'm what you call a newbie, but please bear with me as i think this will interest you
I'm trying to root my HTC WIldfire (to get ride of all the bloated manufacturer installed apps) and have been trying to follow the instructions on htcdev.c o m
I have downloaded from htcdev.c o m / bootloader / ruu-downloads the following RUU
HTC WWE Tesco 2.25.1107.1 PC4910000
Prior to running the RUU, my phone indicated the following
Buzz PVT Ship S-On
SPL/hboot version: 1.01.0001.
Radio version: 126.96.36.199.
Main software version: 1.28.1107.2.
when running the downloaded RUU, which was in fact PC4910000_Buzz_Froyo_hboot_1.02.0000_R3. (executable), it got as far as trying to update from 1.28.1107.2 to 188.8.131.52 as specified in the RUU (I was given no other options), I then got the following message:
'Your ROM version is not the latest version.
Please upgrade to 2.25.1107.3 to apply this RUU to be able to unlock your bootloader
On your phone go to Menu>......(edited).....>Check now.
After you have updated, please run the RUU again to upgrade your HBOOT to unlock your phone.'
I tried updating to the latest ROM on my phone but my phone indicated the software was already the latest version so no update was available
After searching both HTCDEV and the xba-developers forums, I can find no reference to ver 2.25.1107.3 anywhere!
What am I doing wrong and can someone explain a (full proof) method to root my phone. I would prefer to leave S-ON and was considering using cyanogenmod firmware after my phone had been routed....Help please anyone?
Thanks in advance
