1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hello all fellow HTC ERIS/DESIRE users!

    Please all Devs and Member dedicated to finding a root!!!
    We need your help and support!

    Here is some stuff we tried:
    Tried: asroot2
    Worked (y/n): no
    Why?: Hole was more than likely patched.

    Tried: Flashrec
    Worked (y/n): No
    Why?: See above

    Tried: Renaming a rom UPDATE.ZIP / PB001ZIP
    Worked (y/n): no
    Why?: Roms are signed by HTC. We can't sign our own

    Tried: http://www.milw0rm.com/exploits/8478
    Worked (y/n): no
    Why?: I don't know. May be something to look further into.

    Tried: current->clear_child_tid pointer http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/de...=CVE-2009-2848
    Worked (y/n): ?
    Why?: Never followed up

    Tried: Buffer over run open ports
    Worked (y/n): ?
    Why?: Suggested by Jmanly, but documentation for an exploit that could work was never found.

    Tried: Editing recovery.zip that goes right into the Ruu Worked (y/n): no
    Why?: This was trying to use the RUU to our advantage and write a custom recovery image to the phone through it. It didn't work because the modified roms failed a signature check.
