HTC wildfire 2.2.1 root to HTC wildfire Android 2.3 | Install Android 2.3 on HTC Wildfire | How to root Htc Wildfire 2.2.1

Sometime ago I got an HTC Wildfire and was having loads of fun using it, but every time I wanted to do anything HTC wildfire 2.2.1 root to HTC wildfire Android 2.3 | Install Android 2.3 on HTC Wildfire | How to root Htc Wildfire 2.2.1more  "creative" i was stopped by the binded nature of phone, hence i decided to root it (jailbreak it apple fellas) and get complete control over my device. Here, I am covering step by step guide to root HTC wildfire 2.2.1 and install Android 2.3 on HTC Wildfire.

To do the rooting you must have your Wildfire with S-OFF, HBOOT 1.02.0002 and Android 2.2.1 . You can check it by booting into HBOOT (power on your phone by holding the VOLUME DOWN + POWER button) .This method is strictly for the 2.2.1 owners. How you can turn the S-OFF is your headache, you can try the alpharev (ask the team if they can get you a 2.0 test version... :P) or you can wait for Unrevoked 3.33 or you can straight off go to market and hunt for XTC clip. Either way, try it and don't attempt to anything before you get S-OFF. Actually the notorious S-ON flag is the cause rooting wildfire is such a pain in the a**.
I used to have this

Android 2.2.1

and I converted it into this :)

or this =)

Anyways, here is how you can root HTC wildfire 2.2.1 and get htc wildfire Android 2.3

What you need ?

  • HTC wildfire with S-OFF , HBOOT 1.01.0002 , OS Froyo 2.2.1
  • USB Drivers (Download)
  • RUU Rom 2.1 / RUU_Buzz_HTC_WWE_1.14.405.2_R_Radio_13.45.55.24_3.35.15.31_release_130814_signed (Download)
  • Unrevoked 3.2 Test version (Download)
  • Cyanogenmod 7 (Download) and Google Apps (Download)
  • Time and Patience & last but not the least,
  • Balls of Steel

    Disclaimer

    I am not responsible if your phone gets bricked, by following the process you are voiding your warranty and significant damage may be caused to your device.
    Its all for educational purposes only, if you are dumb enough to screw somewhere then I will be the one who will be laughing at you.
    Software are unpredictable in nature, one may/may not act as predicted especially in case of rooting (personal experience). Hence my friend, tread carefully.
    in short,

I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR STUPIDITY.

Step 1 - Installing the USB drivers

Download USB drivers and extract them on desktop. Turn off your wildfire and boot into HBOOT by holding the VOLUME DOWN + POWER button. Connect your phone to your PC and it will show "drivers installing" or similar there for Android device. When prompted , install the drivers by going to device manager and browsing to the folder where you extracted the drivers. Once installed, disconnect and reboot your phone normally.

Now you need to install the Android bootloader interface. Connect it to your HTC wildfire to the PC and it will ask for drivers again, now go to device manager, click on unknown device,

click on update driver -> install from specific location -> No i will choose to install -> choose Android phone and click on adb interface -> click next -> when asked to install click on continue anyway, just install them.

Once done you will see your phone recognized as "Android bootloader interface". Now disconnect your phone and go into

settings -> applications - > development - > enable USB Debugging.

Congratulations, the first step is complete.

Step 2 - Downgrading from Android 2.2.1 Froyo to Android 2.1 Eclair

Download the RUU rom which is an original stock rom. Plug your phone into the PC and set it to "Charge through USB". Double click RUU rom .exe. Follow the on screen instructions and then let it install. Your phone will reboot into stock HTC 2.1 :) This will be the last time you will be seeing it though.

rom

The HBOOT version will be now 0.80.0002 (check it by powering on your phone by holding the VOLUME DOWN + POWER button)  Once done disconnect your phone.

Step 3 - Gaining root using UnrEVOked , get clockworkmod and set your phone free :)

Download the test version of unrevoked. Let me repeat, DO NOT USE UNREVOKED 3.32 as it will lead to CID errors or to be precise this error

"validation error backup cid is missing"

This may be caused as the 3.32 doesnot support HBOOT 0.82.0002. Hence You need specific test version of Unrevoked 3.2 to do the job. Download it, save it on desktop, and run it. Now connect your phone and the rooting will start. Once donw, you will have Clockworkmod recovery installed on your phone. Reboot your phone now (using the VOLUME UP/DOWN key for navigation and clicking using TRACKBALL, the POWER button takes you back in menus). Once rebooted, you will see the superuserapp in your phone and congratulations, your phone is successfully rooted :)

Step 4 - Installing Cyanogenmod 7 or Android Gingerbread 2.3.3

Download the Cyanogenmod 7 with google apps and save it on desktop, connect your phone as USB diskdrive and transfer both zip files on SD card. Once done, reboot your phone into ClockworkMod Recovery (booting by holding the VOLUME DOWN + POWER button and clicking on recovery)

Once the device boots into the ClockworkMod Recovery, use the side VOLUME buttons to move around, and either the POWER button or the TRACKBALL to select.

  • Select the option to Wipe data/factory reset.
  • Then select the option to Wipe cache partition.
  • Select Install zip from sdcard.
  • Select Choose zip from sdcard.
  • choose update-cm-7.0.0-buzz-signed.zip & Let it install.
  • Once done, Select Install zip from sdcard.
  • Select Choose zip from sdcard, choose gapps-gb-20110307-signed.zip
  • Once the installation has finished, to get back to the main menu by clicking the POWER button and select the Reboot system now option.

Congrats..The HTC Wildfire should now boot into CyanogenMod.

Finally rooted :)

Android terminal emulator running on superuser privileges

Enjoy Android 2.3.3 :)

  4. Thanks for the tutorial. Unfortunately I first got the Bootloader Version Error, then the Incorrect ROM Error (or something like that). My HBOOT version is 1.01.0001

    ReplyDelete
  5. Update: guess I figured out what's the problem with the Wrong ROM. My phone is carrier locked so the stock unlocked ROM you provided in the link above is useless. Unfortunately none of the ROMs on the site are from my carrier. So my first task now is to get the phone unlocked.

  7. @Dan
    Hi Dan, have you turned S-OFF using XTC clip or not ? actually when you downgrade it using RUU, you need to have S-OFF and by having it, you will not get any kind of errors.

  10. Sorry Mate it is S-ON
    Tell me how ?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hmm...then it cant be rooted unless you unlock it first via XTC clip or alpharev test. You need to turn the Security Flag to off (S-OFF) in order to gain root access to the device bro...

  41. IMPORTANT MESSAGE READ THIS BEFORE DOWNGRADE

    attention mate... flashing  my 2.2 unbranded wildfire to
    (as you say in your article)

    RUU_Buzz_HTC_WWE_1.14.405.2_R_C_Radio_13.45.55.24_ 3.35.15.19_release_141106_signed.exe

     leads to TOTALLY DEAD touchscreen... and this don't happens only to me, look at this post on xda-developers:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1011748

    Attention, alpharevx S-OFF is out,

    http://alpharev.nl/x/beta/

    so a lot of people will downgrade their wildfire to gain root in these days, and if they find your article they will render their touchscreen unusable!!!

    I solved flashing this ROM after some mumbling:

    RUU_Buzz_HTC_WWE_1.37.405.1_Radio_13.53.55.24H_3.35.19.25_release_151892_signed

    this one give me back touch screen... but i cannot guarantee that will work on all other wildfire...

    i know is not your fault but better if you remove the article, or correct the rom release number, otherwise a LOT of people will hate you

    thank you for posting

    Sorry for the white text, just mark it and it will be visible :)
    Thank you so much!!

    S-OFF using AlphaRevX1. Go to http://alpharev.nl/x/beta/ & download the windows version2. 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 notepad3. Make sure you turn on USB debugging in Settings > Application > Development4. Install the HTC Driver. Mine is in the memory card that came with the phone5. Extract & run alpharevx.exe. Use the code given earlier. Then connect your phone. It should detect & your phone should display USB debugging mode6. 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

  75. To use alpharevx you need to downgrade your boot loader to 1.01.0001 by generating goldcard. Find the process in http://bit.ly/ivlrVY  .. after that go to http://alpharev.nl/x/beta/ and use alpharevx to rooting as well as installing clockworkmod. After that  U dont to downgrade to eclair after that .. just write the cyanogen as described in the tutorial.. Enjoy

  136. Hi, everyone

    The only way to get S-OFF is downgrade de HBOOT to 1.01.0001. RUU_Buzz_HTC_WWE_1.14.405.2_R_Radio_13.45.55.24_3.35.15.31_release_130814_signed do this, but if you´ve another version to Wildfire (for example asia_india in my case), you need to install a small package that contains Gold Card Tools (see how to do in http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1145035 )

    With this small package you can finaly downgrade HBOOT wildfire (In my case I only run Gold Card Toll end, after that, run step 2)

    After this steps, you can gaining root using revolutionary (http://revolutionary.io/ )

    I hope that i can helpfull

    Sorry for my poor English

  174. Hi,
    i am going for android 2.3 from 2.2.1 wildfire , just one concern : after rooting, what about the HTC sense ? Will it work properly or we have to go for Google Play for its alternative.
    Please suggest . 

    ReplyDelete
  175. hi im not sure if someone directly responded to this post with a solution, but what i had to do first was change my hboot version. in my case my orginal hboot version was 1.01.0001 with this version i got that error, i then changed it to 6.01.1002 using revolutionary then tried flashing a ruu rom and it work.

    ps you might also run into another problem in my case some rom didnt have the correct driver for my touch screen i found that the one that worked was 

    RUU_Buzz_hTC_Asia_India_1.25.720.1_Radio_13.45.55.24_3.35.15.31_release_142213_signed.exeor
