    Rooting, help.

    So far, I've already unlocked the booloader and so I've been trying to root the phone. I went through the process of the whole "r1-primo-superboot", but it won't work, it just gets stuck at the splash screen with the red letters and I'm forced to reset it. Also, I tried using the "One-V Kit" and also won't work. One thing I was thinking about doing is just using the zip file that's in the kit for rooting the phone and flashing it through Clockworkmod, but when I try turning on the phone into recovery it just restarts the phone, and by the way I installed Clockworkmod through the kit first, then through fastboot with this img from XDA

    . Any help?

    Not really. Phones have been known to root using methods to other phones. There's also a universal root method for android but requires Linux (that's how the first mercury was rooted.) But DO NOT try to root using my thread for cwm lol

    thanks, I'll give it a try in a bit.

    Well it seems to be that 4.03 doesn't like to give root........ Plus there's no way to go back. Does anyone have root on 4.03? I really want to get away from this craptastic cricket modded OS!


    Well this WILL root 4.03!!!!!!

    NO NO NO.....it's all good now! I had the HTC update to 4.03 and the new files updated on XDA wouldn't get root. What you linked to me did the job! And I'm checking out the Provision-5.1 pages looking for any deal breakers to using it as a everyday driver. Did you have to rework the mms to get it working, some say yes. Others, no. What are your thoughts and opinions?

    on cricket, yes. here is a guide. if you follow exact. it will work

    keep in mind, every custom rom's mms is a bit bugy. mine works every time to email, but not all the time to another phone. kind of hit-n-miss. i have tried all the custom roms in the cdma page and all are like that
