Simon’s Wildfires Utility Brings Intact Warranty Root and More

Utilities and tools are quite popular here on XDA. They provide quick and easy access to a number of otherwise tedious modifications. They are also typically updated frequently, so users generally have the most current methods for doing almost anything. For those carrying the HTC Wildfire S, you now have a multi-purpose rooting tool that promises to make the process more streamlined than manual techniques.

XDA Senior Member simonsimons34 has released a beta version of his app, which is aptly titled Simon’s Wildfires Utility. While there are some bugs to work out, the utility is capable of doing any number of things from rooting the Wildfire S to unlocking the bootloader in such a way that it does not void your warranty. There are still some bugs to remove and planned features to implement, but the utility receives frequent updates, so it’s only a matter of time before everything works perfectly.

Additional information, download links, and instructions can be found in the utility thread.
