    Best guide from your point of view for rooting the desire s? I've been searching and am not sure what to use.

    Also, ROM recommendations, both Vanilla and Sense if it's not too much trouble

    Thanks.

    Ummm.... been a while since I rooted! SuperOneClick or Revolutionary are the popular two. I used SOC.


    Remember you'll need custom recovery to flash ROMs. I use 4EXT touch recovery. It's nice.

    Endymion for Sense 3.5 on GB.
    Fallout for Sense 4.0A on ICS.

    Been a while since I used AOSP / AOKP, though Ice Cold Sandwich was the one I used and it was good, though not perfect due to no 3.0 kernel source. Of course, you could use stock GB... but why would you?

    finally, + repped above. don't know why it was negged.

    Problem is the HBOOT is it's 2.00.0002 which seems to make it a bit different..

    Hmmm... I'm rather alien to that HBOOT... Can you not go back to 0.98 somehow? Ooohh I don't know! :confused:

    Looking into it atm. Adds a few extra steps (Goldcard etc).

    I'll see if I can make sense of it :/

    Good luck. Any time I've seen GoldCard mentioned, I've run a mile. Do not want!

    I can't get HTC drivers to work so ADB ain't happening :/

    Also same, I'm so glad I rooted my Hero before a Goldcard was needed.

    It's a D-link DIR-615 running dd-wrt. I haven't changed any settings on it :s

    I'm going to try giving the S2 a factory reset and see if that helps. No idea what to do about the Asus though. I bought the TF300T in the States, Could that be why the internet isn't working properly?

    Hmm Just checked and they both work fine on my uni wireless. There must be something they don't like about my home network :s Both devices are running 4.0.3.
    it'll not be anything to do with the asus; there were wifi issues with the tf201 (prime) as it had a metal casing, but the tf300 has very good wifi connectivity; purchasing it in the states won't affect it.

    Thanks for the reply. I did manage to get it all working in the end. I had to enable local DNS on my router. It's strange as my laptop and my brother's ipad all managed to access the internet fine, it was just my android devices that had issues :s

    Htc onex is a beautiful phone, I have it myself. What colour did you go for? The apps I use most vary to be honest but I shall list a few.

    Handcent. SMS replacement
    Dolphin hd browser. Internet replacement
    Temple Run. Abit of fun
    GTA III. Awesome game with 78 missions I think
    Skype. Free calls ofcourse

    But most of the apps that you have used on iphone are on android aswell so just download the apps you already know about.

    Hey, what do you think of your tf300 btw? I was going to get the tf700 but can't justify the 599 price tag; do you find your tf300 to have any major short comings? Thanks and how does it compare to the iPad? Cheers

    Unfortunately the only colour Orange had was the black/gray one otherwise I would have gone for the white. Got me a nice chunky Otterbox case though so I guess it doesn't really matter.

    Aye, I figured I've got the basic apps covered but might as well ask the question as there are a lot of apps so might discover some hidden gems. Handcent and Dolphin look good though, so I'll check those out, thanks!
