Most up to date method of rooting a desire?

    Am wanting to root my HTC desire (the original one)

    The only reason I want to do it is to be able to put all of my apps on the SD card. Things like flash and gmail are pretty huge and can't be moved, I regularly have only 10mb left.

    Anybody done it recently? What's the best method?

    Thanks, how did you get on? Any problems since?

    all was going well with my moto defy .......... i now own a brick ! be careful !!

    Dependin on the firmware version, 2.2 downwards use z4root, 2.21 and above its much trickier

    used z4root also - i made the mistake of rebooting the phone before installing custom rom boo

    Really easy actually, it just took me ages to decide what ROM to flash afterwards.

    No problems at all, as it's easy to drop back to your standard settings as long as you back it up.
