  6. Windows XP End Of Support

    After 12 years, support for Windows XP has ended on April 8, 2014. There will be no more security updates or technical support for the Windows XP operating system. Without critical Windows XP security updates, your PC may become vulnerable to harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software which can steal or damage your business data and information. Many software vendors will no longer support their products running on Windows XP as they are unable to receive Windows XP updates. Most PC hardware manufacturers will stop supporting Windows XP on existing and new hardware.

  7. Tip of the Day Always keep an eye on what you click and download, including music, movies, files, browser plug-ins or add-ons
    Be wary of pop-up windows that ask you to download software or that offer to fix your computer. Often these pop-ups will claim that your computer has been infected and that their download can fix it – don’t believe them. Close the window and make sure you don’t click inside the pop-up window. Do not open files of unknown types, or if you see unfamiliar browser prompts or warnings asking you to open a file. Sometimes malware may prevent you from leaving a page if you land on it, for example by repeatedly opening a download prompt. If this happens, use your computer’s task manager or activity monitor to close your browser.

    Hello everyone, I recently bought a HTC Wildfire which don't get me worng it is a really good phone but if you wanted to something "creative" I was always stopped because the phone would not let me do what I wanted it to do, plus I found it slow aftewr a couple of months of using it.

    So this is guide on how to "root" a HTC Wildfire and install the latest update to a HTC Wildfire.

    I am not responsible if your phone gets bricked, by following the process you are voiding your warranty and significant damage may be caused to your device.
    Its all for educational purposes only, if you are dumb enough to screw somewhere then I will be the one who will be laughing at you.
    Software are unpredictable in nature, one may/may not act as predicted especially in case of rooting (personal experience). Hence my friend, tread carefully.
    in short,

    I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR STUPIDITY. ​


    To start the rooting you must have a Wildfire with S-OFF and HBOOT 1.02.0002 and have the software version as Android 2.2.1. You can check it by booting into HBOOT (power on your phone by holding the VOLUME DOWN + POWER button). This method is strictly for Android 2.2.1. How you can turn the S-OFF is your headache, you can try the alpharev (ask the team if they can get you a 2.0 test version... :p) or you can wait for Unrevoked 3.33 or you can straight off go to market and hunt for XTC clip.



    This is what I used to have:

    and I converted it into this :)

    Anyways, here is how you can root HTC wildfire 2.2.1 and get htc wildfire Android 2.3

    What you need ?

    • HTC wildfire with S-OFF , HBOOT 1.01.0002 , OS Froyo 2.2.1
    • USB Drivers - Download
    • RUU Rom 2.1 / RUU_Buzz_HTC_WWE_1.14.405.2_R_Radio_13.45.55.24_3.35.15.31_release_130814_signed - Download
    • Unrevoked 3.2 Test version - Download
    • Cyanogenmod 7 - Download and Google Apps - Download
    • Time and Patience & last but not the least,
    • Balls of Steel

    Enjoy Cyanogenmod it is a great rom.
    I used it some time ago on my Galaxy S, however it had some bugs that made it unstable, so now i just use the latest stock rom and a custom kernel.

    Has HTC unlocked their bootloaders yet?

    RE: .:How to root a HTC Wildfi.

    I know Samsung have in there Galaxy S2 for example, but I'm not sure about HTC Phones, I know there is a HTC Developer webpage with all sorts of source files. I think they plan to in the future, it has developer tools and all sorts of stuff on that site, so they may plan to in the future, and if not, make it easier to anyway
