    Where can I find a USCC HTC Desire RUU file?

    I am anxious to root my Desire, but before I do, I want to be sure that I can unroot it if I ever need to (say when the 2.2 upgrade is released). From what I can find online, the only convenient way to do that with the tools we have available to us now is to install the original RUU (ROM Update Utility) over our existing image - but none of the sites that have the RUU files available for download seem to have one for our phones.

    They have quite a few GSM files to choose from, and even a few CMDA, but they all include "VZW" in their filename, which leads me to believe they are for Verizon and not for USCC. This is one of the sites I checked, but they all seem to have pretty much the same list.

    Does anybody know anybody who has a friend who once went out with a cousin of somebody who works in USCC tech support who might have access to the "official" US Cellular HTC Desire RUU file? And if so, could they share it with the rest of the world? Please?

    Doesn't exist yet. Hopefully soon though. The CDMA desire on that site is actually the HTC hero. The CDMA desire we have is the bravo c. or bravoc depending if there is a space or not. The Bravo is the GSM desire.

    what? What? WHAT? Our phone has been on the market for 3+ weeks, what's the hold up? ;-)

    I went ahead and rooted because I started getting the pop-ups about City ID and couldn't wait any longer to get rid of it. For what we pay each month, I shouldn't have to look at ads when I receive calls. And seriously, who really wants to pay $2/mo to figure out where an incoming unknown call is from?

    I am still interested in obtaining an appropriate RUU file in case I ever need it, so hopefully someone will release one soon.

    I'd like a factory stock RUU also, just in case I ever need to return the phone to original configuration.


    BTW, the Unrevoked 3.21 official release is now out today on their website.

    I thought HTC was required to release the RUU, within a certain amount after the phone's release, I could be wrong but this is what I thought.

    Pretty sure they just have to release the kernel, not a full RUU. The kernel is what is open source, the RUU would contain all of the HTC proprietary apps and info too.

    Nope. I contacted HTC and they didn't know when one would be available.

    Don't think it will be available until they release the Froyo update, hopefully we will have one then.
