    I'm growing an interest for rooting, as I feel there's more I can do with my already awesome phone. Therefore, I'm wondering if there are any easy ways of rooting a Desire with 2.2? I'm thinking something along the lines of the one-click UnrEVOked method. This is an insanely popular phone in Europe at least, so there's got to be someone doing some work in this department, eh? Cheers!

    I don't think rooting on 2.2 has been established yet, at least I couldn't find anything about it over at XDA.

    Now its possible, take a look at several howtos in xda, you have to do a downgrade of the Hboot.

    Hmm, I may have to look into that. I'm still a bit reluctant to alter things too much, but we shall see.

    I rooted my 2.2 Desire using Unrevoked3 and it worked perfectly! So glad that I did as I am loving being able to load a different ROM whenever I feel like it If anyone is a little unsure of how to do it check out TheDroidDemos.com he has a how to video on rooting the desire, and how to load ROM's, etc. Really good if yo are a visual learner.

    Try this method. Carefully follow the directions in post 3 and 4. Those are the directions I used to root my Desire. Very easy to follow step by step directions.

    Hey guys,

    I have been trying to root my HTC Desire for about a month. I have had one big problem with the rooting process. In this video: , while installing the hboot drivers, after I plugged my phone into my computer, the phone should be recognized under "Other Devices" on the computer options. The video says that I should see "Android 1.0" under the Other Devices tab, but the Other Devices tab isn't even showing up. Any suggestions for me?

    Also, I have uninstalled all HTC related programs (i.e. HTC Sync).

    Please let me know if there's anything that I can do to fix this.

    Thanks for the help!
