Ok so I know I have successfully unlocked, im assuming i correctly installed AmronRA. I then restarted my phone, held the down button again, went into recovery, developer menu, install super user. Says the super user was successful. I now restart my phone and I am totally rooted? I just want to make sure I did everything correctly since im not sure how to check if im actually rooted or not before I go install all of my apps and stuff again.
Download from the Google play store the free version of "Titanium Backup".
It is a good program to use, and it will tell you if you are not rooted.
Hi, thanks for the guide. I am stuck right now though.
I was able to unlock my phone through the HTCdev site.
I think I flashed the recovery but when I try to boot into recovery I get to the fastboot screen (at the top it says **TAMPERED** **UNLOCKED**)
I don't think I'm into the AmonRa recovery, it looks just like the stock screen does.
Also, I can be in fastboot and when I connect my USB cable I never get FASTBOOT USB. It's like I lost the ability to have my device recognized by my PC.
**update, I rebooted my PC and I can get FASTBOOT USB now
You're Ok with the tampered/unlocked. Just "fastboot flash recovery <your amon ra file>" with the phone in fastboot USB and connected to your PC
I was able to get it going. In the fastboot menu I hit recovery, then I finally saw the screen I was looking for. "Choose zip from card"
What a relief! I wiped data, all that and have Scotts CleanRom Std running now. I'm still setting up apps and everything but it's looking good.
Thanks for everyone's posts!
I am unlocked and I have done amon ra file. Rebooted and still has s on and I tried to open titanium and it says no root? I have superuser.
