So, if you don’t want to be left out, you’ll need to root your device and join the Ice Cream Sandwich craze.This rooting method is not really very new, but it surely is still effective in rooting your device. Thanks to the Unrevoked team who worked on this rooting method, your phone is just a few steps away from gaining root, getting an unlocked bootloader, and having custom recovery (ClockworkMod Recovery).This guide shows the process for root, bootloader unlock, and ClockworkMod Recovery for the HTC Desire GSM/CDMA.WarningThe instructions in this guide are intended for use with the HTC Desire (either GSM or CDMA variant).

root or unlock app
Tuesday 31st of January 2012
I'm sure there is a reason that an app hasn't been developed but I'm asking because obviously I'm too dang stupid to even figure out how to unlock my phone thru htcdev so why can't there be an app to install that can unlock the bootloader or do temp/perm roots on our phones rather than use a computer to do this. Ten yrs ago OK maybe twenty I probably understood these instructions but now I need instructions and pictures I know pretty freak in sad. I've spent oh gosh three my be four days trying to unlock the phone to no avail and now I've got it where the computer won't recognize it. So Verizon is sending me a new phone. I'm sure there are devs out there that can write code to do all this thru the phone and if this is so it sure be nice to see this as an app in the market. James
Samsung Galaxy Nexus SPH-L700 (Sprint): Root, bootloader unlock, and ClockworkMod Recovery - Android Authority
Friday 22nd of June 2012
If you have a Samsung Galaxy Nexus SPH-L700 (Sprint), there’s no doubt that people around you are green with envy. Your phone is definitely one of the best Android devices on the market, not to mention quite expensive. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to risk bricking it, especially when you don’t know much about tweaking Android phones. The good news is there’s a toolkit that allows users to unlock, root, or re-lock their Sprint Galaxy Nexus in just a few clicks.Tweaking your phone also means that you have to follow instructions or else you might unwittingly brick it. This is very common, particularly for beginners who don’t know the commandss very well and are faced with confusing and sometimes misleading instructions. It’s not too much of a problem if you just soft-brick your phone, but when you talk about irreversible damage, you cannot risk a Galaxy Nexus.This is why XDA Developers senior member WugFresh developed a toolkit which would allow beginners to easily root and unroot, and unlock and relock the phone’s bootloader. It can also be
[Guide]Root and unlock without the data wipe
Saturday 06th of July 2013
Upon helping a member with another issue, I came across a tool that allows one to root & unlock the Nexus 4 without data wiping. It is also a method that doesn't require a connection to a computer. How Cool! Framaroot is a 1-click root method without the need of tethering the device to a computer. Simply download the apk, install, and run it to obtain root.Once you're rooted, that allows you to use BootUnlocker for Nexus Devices to lock or unlock your bootloader without the need for the complete data wipe.This will hopefully be of use for some people out there

The Nexus 4 Finally Gets 4.4 - Here's How You Can Flash The KitKat KRT16S OTA Manually [Root Or Unlock Not Required)
Thursday 21st of November 2013
PrerequisitesDownloadInstallRootingGood news, everyone! The coveted Nexus 4 OTA to Android 4.4 is finally here after a brief delay caused by several serious bugs. It started rolling out very slowly a few days ago, but it wasn't until just now that we were able to finally identify the OTA zip urls for those of you who want to flash KitKat manually without having to wait any longer. No need to mash the Check for updates button over and over - let alone it doesn't actually do anything.So grab and flash the 239MB KRT16S Android 4.4 OTA right now, no matter what your rooting/bootloader situation is. Of course, if you've modified the system partition in such a way that the OTA won't apply cleanly anymore, you have to either revert those changes and try again or flash the factory image.The latest Nova Launcher beta enables transparency and works like a charm:You can also grab The Google Experience Launcher With Translucent Bars And Google Now [APK Download] if you so fancy.Disclaimer: Android Police isn't responsible for any harm to your device - proceed at your own risk.PrerequisitesIn or
[Q] Extract Data without Root or Unlock (Stuck in bootloop)
Tuesday 21st of January 2014
Hello Does anyone know a way to extract data from a Nexus 7 2013 without it being unlocked or rooted? It is stuck in a bootloop, I think from a failed update. The tablet belongs to a family friend who has been using it as a usb device for months and it contains documents, photos and other important data. I manually sideloaded updates to 4.4.2 but that also did not work. Is there anyway to extract data off this thing? I can access stock recovery and fastboot. I would even destroy the tablet if there was a way to take the chip out and copy the stuff to a computer, Thanks everyone￼ :-)
