How To: Root the HTC Wildfire (Unrevoked Method)

I. Before You Begin

1. This is the easiest method available to root.

2. This method will also flash a custom recovery image so you can start flashing ROMs immediately.

3. On your computer, go to Start > Control Panel > Programs > and Uninstall HTC Sync if it is installed before you continue.

II. Root and Flash a Custom Recovery Image

1. Download the Unrevoked Rooting App

Unrevoked (Updated 09.20.10)

2. Double click the Unrevoked program you downloaded. If using Windows, then click on the file that appears called Hboot Driver and follow it’s instructions to install the modified HBoot drivers OR click here and download the drivers and install them manually.

3. Once the drivers are successfully installed, double click the Reflash program to open it.

4. Once the driver is successfully installed, turn off the phone by taking out the battery and putting it back in. Then push power to turn it on and get it to the normal home screen.

5. On your computer, right click the Reflash file and run as administrator. It should open Unrevoked and say “waiting for device”.

6. On your phone, click Menu > Settings > Applications > Development > and make sure USB Debugging is checked ON.

7. Plug in your phone into your computer via usb cable.

8. It should automatically locate your phone that is plugged in and you can just follow the prompts to continue.

9. Done! You are rooted and have a custom recovery image!

III. (Optional) Load a Custom ROM

1. Head over to our How To Load a Custom ROM procedure.

Big thanks to the Unrevoked Team!

    My unrevoked is still at ‘waiting for device’. I’ve restarted the program a number of times and tried on both an xp and win 7 pcs, still doesnt seem to work…please help.

    • Kieran,

      Did you do step 2 and install the HBoot drivers…

      • Cal

        i too encountered the same problem please help it still hang at the ‘waiting for device’ i followed everyting in the video…..please reply asap

        Thanks

        • Shane

          This is rot. It works for Desire but not Wildfire, it just hangs at “Waiting for device” even though the driver is installed. What a waste of time.

        • Shane

          Also tried it on windows XP and it failed too (in addition to win7 x32). What a dissapointing waste of time.

  • Dhruvesh

    Still it shows waiting for device after doing all the things mentioned above .Please help!!!!

  • Tz4R

    Will this method of rooting Wildfire work regardless of the Android version on the Phone ?? I’ve upgraded the phone to Froyo recently.

    • Yes

    • Firozesm

      hai what is experiance of after upgrading to Froyo… will we get all HTC sense app works after that

  • Wim

    Hi guys,
    thank you for the tutorial! I want to root my Wildfire, and now I know how to do it properly 🙂
    I just have one question left: is there any risk to absolutely destroy your phone (to make it unusable :p)? 😀

  • Georgi

    I followed all the steps very carefully, but it doesn’t recognize the phone and keep saying “waiting for device”.
    I installed the drivers successfully. On the device manager there is now : other devices – ADB with a yellow sign. Is that ok?
    Thanks.

  • Make sure HTC Sync is removed from the phone (it gets put on both the PC and the phone), by looking at Settings->Applications->Manage Applications and searching for HTC Sync. I too had the “waiting for device…” message but didn’t realise the app was still on the phone, confusing unrevoked3.

    For me in the first step itself; when i double click the application downloaded; it does not ask for installing the driver; but direct opens the recovery reflash tool and waiting for device.

    what should i do.

  • William

    If you don’t get past the waiting for device screen, try installing and uninstalling HTC sync. Did the trick for me…

    thanks for the guide!

  • Venugopal.N

    no luck, tried many times; even removed windows firewall, did remove antivirus, did driver install many times; still waiting for phone.

    is there a way to do custom recovery – can the clockworkMod Recovery image be downloaded separately and then do a custom recovery?

    If possible; can you kindly post that image so that we can download and check? Without wi fi working; this phone is of no use.

    kind regards

    I used this method with my wildfire and have the following problem:
    – I saw now problem during the process and got the unrevoked OK message.
    – Now I got the recovery menu and I try to select nandriod or “reboot now” and all I get is a black screen.
    – The only way I found to get out of this black screen is simply to take out the battery.

    Do you have any idea what went wrong and how can I backup my phone?

    Thanks,
    T.

    • Try to use the trackball to select instead of power when in that menu… let me know if that works.

      • Ta

        You made my day!

        That worked perfectly.

        Thank you very much,

        T.

      • any idea about wildfire with the chinese froyo? Supposed to work too?

  • Venugopal.N

    Success at last..

    One small step that I am not sure if others are doing correctly or not – that was keeping me blocked at – waiting for device.

    When HTC Sync is installed; it does install a Driver Software – HTC Driver Installer – that I was uninstalling when there was mention that HTC Sync need to be removed – THAT WAS CAUSING THIS ISSUE.

    Hence any one new trying to fix this HTC screw up; please note the above.

    It works exactly as in the instruction with no glitch;; wi fi turns on and off with no issue at all…

    thank you for all your kind help.

    Kindest regards

    • YANG

      Do u mean i should leave the HTC driver Installer and just uninstall the HTC SYNC?

    • P29darshan

      😛 i unistalled it but then also im getting error :O

  • Gmeska

    Still got message “waiting for device”. Tried many times what you wrote, but still nothing. What it could be?

    “Wait until the screen flashes through an “SD Checking” message before pressing buttons; otherwise, the phone will ignore keypresses.” – I didnt see such message about SD checking. Why????
    I use wildfire

  • Jamal

    hi
    I followed all the instruction on the video and I have the user permission icon but it doesn’t seem to be doing anything plz any help

    • What do you mean it isn’t doing anything? Be more specific. What root required app did you try to run and what error did it give you?

      • Jamal

        I have used unrevoked and I installed the drivers and I went through all the process until the done came up. I tried to use astro and cat file to copy fonts to system/fonts it didn’t accept it.

        1) How do I know if my phone is rooted?(I already have the user permission icon)
        2) How can I add fonts to my fonts folder?

        • Jamal

          sorry the done message came up.
          Thx in advance TheUnlockr

  • Karel

    When I get into ClockwordMod recovery and I want to scroll to nandroid, it doesn’t work and then it says: SD card mounted.. Then it automatically boots, and i didnt get the chance to make a backup?

  • Hi,

    i have HTC wildfire, i used Windows 7 with unrevoked, done your tutorial i.e.
    backup the files (tested restoring), download CM 6.1, everything works

    but when i restart the HTC it or power off after installing CM 6.1 for wildfire,
    it shows CM logo in the begining and keep repeating it
    i waited for few times but i think HTC is hanging again and again and its not initializing the phone

    any reason why its not able to restart properly?and hangs

  • Yes, you need to make sure you wipe data in recovery mode then immediately flash the rom. Try again, good luck.

    • hi the same problam i a i done and loadad  android bootloder interface

    ‘device bee is not supported at this time’

    i have some bad news.

    I’m not 100% positive, but from what i was told, our ‘bee’ phones aren’t compatable with unrevoked… (yet)…? i had asked in IRC and according to them, the bee isn’t ready yet.

    Hopefully this will save some searching for some of you, i know i put a good amount of time into it before i went straight to the source.

  • Good to know. I got the HTC Wildfire “Bee” Yesterday from Bluegrass Cellular. Unrevoked is not working as everyone is saying. Super One Click will root it to a point. It will allow for most rooted applications to work like Wifi tether, etc. Only thing is it does’t root deep enough to allow roms or other root required apps. So, hopefully unrevoked will get on it. I doubt there is any difference between Buzz and Bee and it’s probably just a portion of unrevoked that checks compatibility by names that doesn’t say “bee”. I could be wrong but who knows.

    I got to step 4, and I manually installed the hboot drivers as per the unrevoked link, and got all the screens that the link said I was supposed to have.

    However, after taking the battery out of the phone and plugging it back in, I get a message “Windows needs to install driver software for your My HTC”.

    What mode should I be in for the PC connection – charge only, HTC Sync, disk drive?

    I tried doing “Locate and install device drivers”, then it comes up with a prompt to insert a disc, and I selected “I don’t have the disc”, and manually navigated to the folder into which I’d downloaded hboot drivers, and then got a message “Windows was unable to install your device”, could not find driver software etc…

    Any suggestions, please?

    Some questions :
    – Can this break your phone ?
    – Is there a way to backup the entire thing before you do anything so you can remove it all again ?
    – Does this all still work after the Froyo (2.2) update ?
    I don’t know a lot about these things but i’d love some extra features like live wallpapers with a custom ROM 🙂

  • Jeroen

    I was annoyed by this issue to! It’s easy to solve. You need to install HTC sync first. It will install some sort of driver that you need. After the installation you need to delete HTC sync but let the htc drivers stay on you computer. Now your’e ready to root!

    Excuse me for the bad English!

    I have a Wildfire that I bought in China (are there any specific instructions for Chinese units?).

    I’m trying to install the Android USB Driver and when I restart my phone in HBOOT mode there is no option for HBOOT USB.

    What I see are options for FASTBOOT, RECOVERY, CLEAR STORAGE, SIMLOCK, and IMAGE CRC.

    Is this an issue with Chinese units? I *think* I’m in the right area and trying to do the right thing, dunno.

    • connect your htc to usb and wait a bit and you will get Hboot usb plaged

  • SonicScythe

    Unrevoked wasn’t detecting the device, it was because i needed to install the the USB drivers.
    So i downloaded HTC sync, started the installation, said ok to the part where it asks me to install certain drivers, and then quit the installation when it asked if i wanted to proceed with installing HTC sync.

    And then i connected my phone again and unrevoked detected it 🙂

  • Mitchmitch2009

    If your having trouble finding Hboot Then, Providing your on Windows 7, just open the Windows Menu (Start button) and type in Hboot in the Search Bar.

    This pulled me back so i dont know if it will have for you guys.

    Just so nobody wastes their time with this: if you have a Wildfire running android 2.2, your hboot version will be too new, and you will receive an error about that when the reflash program tries to root it.

    PLEASE anyone HELP me to root my HTC Wildfire 2.2.1 

  • Abramolsen

    To all those having issues with being unable to detect phone: On the computer needs to be HTC Driver Installer it appears, which is downloaded with HTC Sync. So if you download HTC Sync (on your computer), uninstall it, then run Unrevoked, it should work. Good luck 🙂

    • beer

      this works perfect

  • Julek

    This method won’t work for android 2.2.1, 2.2.1 was released to stop rooting, unrevoked are working on 3.33 which will hopefully support 2.2.1…untill then we wait…

    David? Did you know that this DOESN’T work for wildfire with android 2.2.1?? unrevoked says: “Error: fail to get root. Is firmware too new?” I’ve tried 10 times with unrevoked and it keep saying that. Please send me an e-mail to zupersaleh@hotmail.com If you have a solution to it. Please :)Thx for helping 🙂

  • As_3772

    Hey I have 2.2.1 and i understand that unrevoked is not compatible with that right now and downgrading to 2.1 is no use because the driver is too new………is there any way that i can downgrade the driver?if so please explain how…..

    Thanks

  • Yowla

    For all of those having problems with shown above, I recommend installing again  HTC sync (cause it will install again all the drivers you need), then uninstalling only HTC sync with ADD/Remove probgrams in Control Panel. I also had problems then with rooting my phone with unrEVOked, cause I didn’t have the option HSBOOT, so I finally managed to root my phone after using advices from these address

    • Katis74

      Ok  this is the progaram .USE THIS FIRST OF ALL!! AlphaRevX website.

  • Michelthekid

    Forget easy to follow.. I can’t even get past step 2.

  • Bmx-ridder

    how do you get on the rooting website i cant find it

  • Somaiah

    I had some problems, but finally managed to get this done:
    1. Make sure you do a factory reset. Otherwise you’ll get some errors.
    2. Make sure nothing is sync-ing. This means turn off background sync, set your USB connection to Disk Drive
    3. Set the USB debug as mentioned in the article.

    Thanks for the walkthrough. I’m pimpin now.

    Does this only work if your wildfire is s-off? Mine is s-on, and it only says hboot usb at the top, and doesnt have an option for it.

    Hello,

    Got error that “marvelc” not supported at this time?

    Please help.

    ronjie@netzero.net

    • Ronjie

      actually an addition to this posting, ( now that i have a bit more time ) it’s a funny thing, I can set my htc wildfire s as a hard drive and can see the memory installed. I just couldn’t get htc sync to work at all, htc tech support wasn’t much help. i was hoping that this might help somehow to solve some of my problems with the phone. Can someone please help me here?

      Thanx,

      Ronjie
