    Default Rooting?

    Hello everyone,

    I currently have an HTC Rezound and recently upgraded to the "leaked ICS" firmware and it is up and running...I tried to root the device and I recently posted as of a week ago "In need of help, may have possibly bricked my phone"..I asked for the proper root files or what not and never received a response because the ones I recieved from the user "wanda" were no good and I am not sure what to do..

    FYI...The ICS leak has a lot of bugs in it and was wondering how to revert to the original firmware..my battery life seemed to have gotten worse since I updated it..

    Thank You

    "By definition bricking means your phone is dead. It will not turn on or anything.

    Can you explain exactly what your phone is doing?

    The "proper root files" were contained in the link to the Team BAMF website I sent you last week. The instructions for rooting and all the links to all the files were contained in that link.

    Try reading the stickie note on this forum written by Mr Smith. It's an excellent guide and should be of help.

    Ps, no need to double post ...it won't get you answers any faster.

    I agree, try to condense this into one thread. It makes it easier to figure out.
    Around here, however, we don't look backwards for very long.
    We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things,
    because we're curious...and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

    Ok the recovery you dowoaded was bad, no biggie. Just google it and find it from somewhere else. Also check Mr Smith's stickie guide...he has links there too.

    And no need to go into "caps lock mode". I didn't ask you if you were unlocked, I knew you were. And when you double post it starts getting confusing trying to sort through which thread was being answered and who posted what. I'd suggest taking down one of the threads.

    Fyi reason I double posted was because I didn't see my other post showing in the forums...so I wasn't sure if it went through my bad
