Question HTC Desire rooted then need help...

I am ashamed to admit I passed the rooting with flying colours then stoped like a dumbass at

2) Unlock the boot loader of your HTC Desire.

I found that HTC offers a way to DIY but I was wondering if there is a simpler way. Beside is it possible that my HTC has already the boot loader unlocked?

Cheers for the help guys.

Chris, you need to install Windows on it. None of that Linucs stuff you're messing with at the moment.

Besides, what are you trying to achieve (other than nullifying any security the device had)?

He wasn't joking...you must be pure of heart to use Linux...othertwise it can have very unhealthy results!

I can do heart purifications but you will need a DOS disk and plenty of room on a Linux hard drive and twice the RAM of your smallest partition...

We can make the rest up as we go into the light! ":O}

Love you Robbie, always useful as usual, guess what, I managed to update the ROM after I rooted the phone and then I installed the beta_013. The result was bad, after booting it kept looping with a graphical kind of screensaver X on the screen. I then used gapps-ics-20....signed and its WOOOOOOOOORKINGGGGGGG!!! I know have Android 4.0.4 on my HTC Desire and its working as never before I swear!

I am glad Skype is working absolutely fine after the update because for whatever reason and no matter what I did before the update I could only hear whoever I was talking with for just about 5 secs before a background loud noise would take over. My problem now has to do with partitioning and clearing cache, I guess, since I have no space on the phone to install whatever I want to install. Who's going to help me on this one?

Well... you could try installing Windows 8...

Then no one will want to talk to you anyway...?

I'm not a very technical person...it's just what I read on the web thingy..

You cleared that cache before you updated the OS? You'll need to use HBOOT (vol down + power) to do it. I'd recommend you back up your device and don't have the memory card or SIM in it.

On the HBOOT screen, you're aiming for "Clear Storage". Once that has completed, you'll need to re-enter HBOOT and go for "Recovery", which should allow you to wipe the cache partition.

Try not to alter partitions unless you're very sure about what you're doing. Some ROMs expect certain partitions to be certain sizes, and stuff breaks quickly if you change them. Presumably you are installing applications to the SD card, not internal memory?
