Sometimes, users who are new to a device require a little more than even the most precisely worded How-To thread in order to get started with the basics such as rooting their phones, unlocking their bootloaders, and installing custom recoveries. XDA Senior Member hasoon2000 has solved this problem for HTC Vivid owners and want to get their phones rooted, unlocked, and ready to go.
The HTC Vivid All-In-One Toolkit gives users a plethora of aids including permanent root, CIQ removal, ClockworkMod Recovery, and a debloater that will remove the bloatware. The full list includes:
- Install HTC Drivers
– Unlock Bootloader (Must place Unlock_code.bin in the folder)
– Install Recoveries
-Flash Kernels provided

– CIQ Removal v1.1 (credit to 8125Omnimax)
– Link to this thread
– Link to the FAQ thread
– Link to the Vivid Development thread.
– Boot Into Recovery
– Relock Bootloader (must be in fastboot)
– Debloater and Debloater Remover (Credits to Bling)
The user interface is very plain and easy to understand, so there’s no real guess work involved. Just plug in your HTC Vivid and start going.
Check out the original thread for download links, screenshots, instructions, and everything else you’ll need to get started. Once you’re rooted with that custom recovery, make a full Nandroid backup—just in case._________
