    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 get one thread bump in 24 hours. This is a good time. Good luck, and good night.

    I believe the video is out of date.

    If your computer still recognizes your Inspire, try starting over.

    The first time I tried, I did something wrong, so I just started over.
    I got it right the second time.

    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.

    Also, Bubby has a FAQ in the first post that helped me out with many issues. I believe there's something in there about rage as well.
