HTC Desire :: Possible To Root Without Installing A New ROM

Aug 10, 2010

If it is possible to have root on my current Desire ROM (T-Mobile branded 2.1 update1, Build 1.21.110.4 CL175581 release keys, bootloader 0.80) without having to wipe the phone and install another ROM?

The reason that I ask is that I have read a few reviews about Titanium Backup as that would back up all apps and settings and make my life a lot easier if I decide to debrand and install the stock 2.2 ROM as everything can be reinstalled in a 1 click process. Its the data (email accounts in k9 mail etc) that I am ideally needing saved as those are a pain in the arse to setup again. If root on the current rom cannot be done is there any other app that would save my data as I can save the apks using Astro.

Jul 23, 2010

Just plucked up the courage to root my Desire. And now want to have a go at installing Froyo and looking for the easiest way. I've looked at ROM Manager and was wondering if its worth getting the paid version as it says you can get all the popular ROMs downloaded to your phone. Was wondering how good this app is and if anyone has had problems with getting the ROMs.

Android :: Installing New Root CA Certificate From Application

Sep 14, 2010

My application redirects its users to a known domain (secure.gate2shop.com) that its root certificate doesn't exist on Android devices. Normal PC browsers have no problem accessing the site, but Android browser displays to the user that the certificate is untrusted. I don't want that behavior, not even once, so I'm looking for a way to install this certificate on the device from my app.

I rooted my phone with Unrevoked Forever and installed the Virtuous 2.2 ROM a while ago, anyway, I'm getting a notification about a system Update that wants to install Verizon Bloatware on my phone, so I was gonna install it then promptly delete the apps just to get rid of the notifications, but when I go to install, it counts down from 10 to restart, then does nothing.

Samsung Captivate :: Side Loading Applications (Installing Non Market) Without Root

Aug 6, 2010

I've seen many threads on the crappy side asking how to side load apps (installing non market apps) well you can root (look for the sticky in our forum) or you just use the Side loading Wonder Machine with no need to root. I use it all the time (just got me an Oregon Trail apk anyway, just follow the instructions and you'll be happy. I would make two minor corrections though. I downloaded the samsung drivers from samsung them selfs. Also make sure you have the apk in the same folder as the wonder machine heres a video.

HTC Desire :: To Root Or Not To Root - Memory Space

Sep 23, 2010

I've got my Desire for 3 months now. I realy think that I have done the best phone choice of my life. But now after installing/uninstalling/testing many apps I have capacity problems with internal memory. I'm using the method of installing apps directly to the SD. But I always have the low on space notification on my task bar. 75% of what I have installed is on my sd. The rest 25% is HTC Sense apps. My Desire runs on stock froyo and combined with htc sense I have the feeling of perfection while using my phone. Everything run smoothly. No complaints.

So what are my options here? Root? I suppose that I will have to erase everything on my phone memory so I would have more space. If this is the case then I have to ask for your suggestions. a) I will have to stick with launcherpro and I dont like it. No htc sense on non stock froyo right? b) I have many security and privacy concerns for using those roms that some groups have developed. Are they stable as atleast stock froyo? Are they safe? Is there a good phone resources administration? omg 12 mb for adobe flash player on my memory?

HTC Desire :: Installing CA Certificate For IPSec VPN

May 5, 2010

I am having trouble installing a CA certificate on my Desire which I need to get access to my company's IPSec VPN.I understand the proper way to do this is to pack user certificate, user key and CA certificate into a single PKCS12 file, put it on the SD card and use the built-in certificate installation tool to unpack and install the certificates.I have my user cert and key packed into a single PEM file and the CA in a separate CRT file.However, when installing the p12 file on the Desire from the SD card, it only installs the user cert and key, ignoring the CA certificate. Thus, I can't set up an IPSec VPN.I also tried putting the CA crt file on a web site and installing it using the browser, but the browser thinks is is a user certificate rather than a CA cert and installs it as such. Is this a bug, or am I doing something wrong? Did anyone even manage to get this to work? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I already mailed HTC support a few days ago, but didn't get an answer do far.

HTC Desire :: Installing A Fresh ROM / Apps2sd / On New 32gb

Jul 23, 2010

I finally got my 32gb from play.com through the post. Now after reading again froyo saves the app on the sd card but saves the extra user data etc I think on internal memory so what's the point in that? Now I'm just thinking of going all the way once and for all. At the moment I am running the standard 4gb card on my unbranded o2 with the devillian rom, but I found this rom freezes sometimes abit, like windows, you click on something it freezes then a couple seconds later comes back to life plus the flash player and browser seems to be worse than stock. So I'm moving away from this one. Open for recommendations, but I'm leaning towards the one lekky is using (defrost?) as I think that is known to be well.Instead of doing it myself and going awol searching on the interwebs, jumping on the ever stressful rooting/rom merry go round and crawling into a fetal position rocking back and forth when things don't go to plan I thought I should post on here first and listen to your recommendations.

HTC Desire :: Installing Non Market Apps (.apk Files)

Aug 15, 2010

I've found an app that is not on the market which i'd like to download but it is an .apk file. The site says to use HTC Sync which sounds easy on the HTC website but then says it's only available for Wildfire, not my Desire.Is there any easy way to get these apps that are apk files onto my phone?Sorry if this is a dumb question, but am only really now getting to grips with what this little thing can do and boy am I impressed! Actually jumped for joy when my google calender and phone synched together without me doing ANYTHING!

HTC Desire : Rooted - But Have No Interest In Installing A Custom Rom

Jul 26, 2010

yesterday i rooted my desire but i have no interest in installing a custom rom. all i want to install is apps2sd or apps2sd +i have read many guides but most of them conflict each other.if i was to follow these steps what would be wiped from the phone.

Using the optical trackpad select Wipe > Wipe data/factory reset
After this has completed do Wipe > Wipe cache
Again, once this has completed do Wipe > Wipe Dalvik-cache.

I understand that the sd card gets wiped and that is not a problem, i'm more worried what gets wiped from the phone memory (not worried about installed apps) also can i do the ext3/4 from the phone as i only have windows 7.
