I need some root help please!!
I have looked through various threads and forums but i couldn't find anything that would help me with my issues. I recently bought a htc inspire and after a couple of days my friend convinced me to root it. I followed the steps using this [DEV][GUI][RC2][GPL][3-21-2011] HTC Inspire 4G Simple One Click - xda-developers root. All was going well till i powered it up,after following the specific examples shown in the video and directions. I had no superuser app and my "root access was denied" and i have no sound (i know it says that you have to flash that).However i did get S-on to change to S-off. I'm currently stopping where im at as i dont want to experiment farther and risk bricking my phone. I'd appreciate any suggestions in helping me finish or complete the root. Thank you!

I'm real apprehensive to be the one to walk you through it.
I just barely started with Android a week ago.
I've worked a lot with Custom Roms, back in the Old WM days, but I'm still real new to Android.
For me, I started over from the beginning, and all went well the second time.
However; I don't want in anyway to feel bad if something goes wrong for you.
You might also want to post in the xda-developers thread:

Some people said they did it in 30 minutes.
For me I think I spent a little over an hour.
I went really slow and read every little message it gave me.
The next time I have to root, I'll probably be more comfortable.
Just take it really slow. Read and make sure you aren't missing an instruction or step.

I think I remember reading something about the rage being stripped out of the program by antivirus. Did you make sure to turn off/ remove antivirus before downloading and during the root process? I also turned off firewall and windows defender to be safe.
