    I've been trying everything I could find to root my wife's HTC Rhyme and nothing works. ZergRush, TocoRoot, SuperTool, OneClick, SuperOneClick... none of it worked. I even tried flashing an RUU with a windows PC utility and it nearly bricked the phone to where I could only boot into the bootloader. I recovered from that but now I have no WiFi. I had this problem on my HTC Incredible and a kernel re-flash fixed it so maybe that's what I need here but I can't find one. Probably couldn't flash it without root S-OFF anyway.

    The only thing that I've been able to do successfully is unlock/relock the bootloader. This is my wife's phone and I really want to root it so that she can have the benefit of being able to completely backup everything.

    Any help with at least the WiFi issue wold be appreciated. Rooting would be nice too but I don't want to be greedy.

    Thanks.

    I was able to install an RUU which fixed the WiFi issue, but now the phone is stuck in a boot-loop. I've flashed it three times (doing it twice each attempt) but its the same result every time. The phone boots normally the first time, then goes into loop on the next restart. Could be the wrong RUU, could be corrupted or maybe I'm doing it wrong. I don't know.

    Please... Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
