Wildfire 2.2 root tutorial for htc Wildfire

So after a full day of hardwork, I finally rooted my HTC Wildfire (2.2). Here is an idiot-proof step by step tutorial for you. Make it YOUR phone again in less than 30 minutes.

S-OFF using AlphaRevX
1. Go to http://alpharev.nl/x/beta/ & download the windows version
2. When it asks you for the serial, enter your phone's serial number. Go to Settings > About phone & enter your serial. Copy the code given into notepad
3. Make sure you turn on USB debugging in Settings > Application > Development
4. Install the HTC Driver. Mine is in the memory card that came with the phone
5. Extract & run alpharevx.exe. Use the code given earlier. Then connect your phone. It should detect & your phone should display USB debugging mode
6. Wait for it to complete. Once it is completed, you can remove your phone.
7. To check turn off your phone. Then press volume down & power. On top it should display alpharevx & s-off

Clockwork recovery
1. This is to enable you to install a custom rom, and also for backup
2. Get the fastboot tool for windows
3. Copy the fastboot file you downloaded to the alpharevx folder you extracted earlier. Copy the folder to drive C so it is easier to run command prompt. Rename the folder to wildfire
4. Download the recovery for Wildfire. Extract & rename it to wildfire.img
5. Open command prompt. Type cd c:/wildfire & fastboot flash recovery wildfire.img
6. Download & install HBOOT driver from unrevoked. Go into bootloader (volume down & power), select fastboot. Connect your phone & it will display fasboot usb cable
7. Done. To check go to bootloader & select recovery

Rooting your phone
1. Download this file & put it in you SD card. Don't extract it 
2. Go to clockword recovery & select Install From SD Card > Choose From SD Card
3. Select su- & choose yes
4. After completed, go back & reboot
5. You should have Super User
6. An alternative way to root is to use Gingerbreak
7. Open it using any file manager, I used Astro. Install it
8. Open the app & select root. Remember to turn on USB debugging & insert SD card
9. I waited 15 minutes, go frustrated & pressed back. It says the phone is rooted but cannot reboot.
10. After I rebooted, I have Super User

Rom manager & cyanogen mod
1. Install ROM manager from the market
2. Flash to latest recovery
3. Download rom > Cyanogenmod. Remember to install Google addons
4. Install the ROM
5. You can also manually download cyanogenmod7 & transfer the .zip into your SD card.
6. Open ROM manager & select install from SD

Download Google Plus For Android

Some of the biggest news in the world of social networks today comes out of Google. They have announced the big secret behind the Google +1 button, and they call it Google+. It is currently only available to those who receive an invite.

One of the biggest parts of the Google+ announcement is the Android App that comes along with it. While anyone can download the app from the market, you will need to be an invited user to Google+ in order to make use of it.

Google announced a handful of features for Google+ that are exclusive to the Android apps. One of the coolest is the photo and video uploading service. Advertised as “Instant Upload”, the service will allow you to store photos and videos as part of Google+. Once they are uploaded, you can select to share them with people in your “Circles.”

The Android App also gives you access to your “Stream”, which is very similar to the Facebook News Feed. Here you will see the stories, posts, and media that is shared by the people in your Circles. The app will also allow you to add your location to any post you put into the Stream.

As far as I am concerned, the coolest part of the Google+ app is Huddle. Huddle is a group messaging service designed around the Circles. It is reminiscent of BlackBerry Messenger or Beluga, but aimed more at groups of people. That part of the Google+ service makes me very excited.

Like I said, Google+ is currently invitation only. I have signed up for an invite, and downloaded the app in anticipation. I hope to get an invitation soon. If you want to sign up for an invitation, you can do that here.


A small update to the Google+ Android app, which is quickly becoming one of the top apps I use every day, was released a few minutes ago. The update mostly resolves login issues for those with multiple Gmail accounts (we've heard many of you complain about not being able to sign in because of that). Other additions include a new "spiffy" profile icon and UI polish.

Grab the update in the Market if you already have access to Plus, and if you don't, feel free to drop your name and email in this post. We'll try to mass invite once Google allows it again (the workaround that many of you pointed out doesn't work for mass invites, and I'm not about to manually invite 4500+ people on the list :-]. However, if you have friends on Plus, you can try asking them).
What's in this version:
  1. Spiffy new profile icon on the menu screen
  2. Handle multiple Gmail accounts on first sign in
  3. Minor UI polish
