Partial Root for the Desire HD
It looks like there is light at the end of the tunnel for Desire HD owners, thanks to Paul O’Brien at MoDaCo. XDA member Apache14 made a very quick and simple guide describing how to root (at least partially) this device. Again, the root is not full, meaning that you will only be allowed to do certain things with it, such as installing apps that require root, theming, and use Titanium Backup. There is still no access to edit either the hboot or the recovery image.
The guide is simple to follow and really only need to download and run this little “magic key” from the market. It is a step in the right direction, so far. Questions about it can be asked in the thread.
I got my Desire HD and can confirm that VISIONary temp root works.
- get “VISIONary ” from the market
- Leve it ~1min
- You now have root
You can find more information in the guide thread.

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
