HTC Wildfire S

Unloack the ROM

I have a TNZ standard HTC Wildfire S, they come factory shipped - locked down and rom locked (aka you cant install su or custom roms).

Instructions to unlock the bootloader are here http://www.htcwildfiresblog.com/2012/03/guide-to-rooting-htc-wildfire-s-235-s.html

Root the phone

The root options in the link above didnt work for me.

Using the clockwork recovery mod worked to add root permission to the device, follow these instructions:

Free up the internal memory

Next mod that is required is to free up some of the internal memory

I'm using Link2SD application - this requires you to make two primary partions on your SD card (both Fat32), it will allow you to uninstall the factory applications, and then you can download them and install EVERYTHING on the sd card. other applications you can link the files to your 2nd SD card partition.
