for research purposes I'd need to root a HTC Desire phone without flashing it. I did it already on the HTC Hero, where it was quite simple.
Basically all I would need is to get r/w access to the /system/app folder for copying my custom apk file there. Obviously this needs root access.
Is there a way to easily root the Desire without the need to completely flash and place a custom ROM on it?
Some details about the phone:
- OS: Froyo 2.2
- Software number: 126.96.36.199
- Kernel version: 188.8.131.52
Thx for your help
