Root Rooting Help

I am trying to root my girlfriends phone. However I keep running into issues with the htcdevs site. phone is running .218 hboot, 2.3.5 android version, and software 5.07.651.1 710RD. If anyone would be able to help with a teamviewer session I would greatly appreciate it, and also donate to the dev of their choice. I have had experience with samsung and Motorola, but this thing is a totally different breed of beast lol.

Well I got the bootloader unlocked finally lol. The problem I am into now is that I cant find out how to root the device or install a recovery. Ive been looking at the root guide itself but im not finding anything in there about how to do either one of these.

Also teamviewer is an application that you use on a PC to work on someones computer from a different one. Ive done it to root others phones and fix general issues. Pretty secure system, if they get into something that you dont want them into you can instantly freeze and disconnect their connection.

Are you following this guide?
Just click on the "show" of htc dev method and more options will come up as to recovery etc.
Glad you got your bootloader unlocked...you are almost there!!!:D
