Temp Root HTC Desire To Enable Market

Enough is enough. Time and again I had to download apk files from risky source because I couldn't find the app in market. Many apps like Skype, Funny Jokes, Google+ is in market but when I had tried to install it, it said "This app is incompatible with your [phone]" and the reason for it was "This item cannot be installed in your device's country".

If I fake that my SIM card is from different operator and country, Android market will allow me to install app that are not available in my country. If I fake USA operator I'll get the most app.

So I decided to root my phone to fix this for now and for ever. But again I really didn't want to do a permanent root as I'm expecting Gingerbread update any time now. I also have extra slow Internet and currently don't have much free time. And most importantly this phone is very very very ... very expensive for me. It takes year and year of my salary to afford one. Even though chance of bricking is very very very ... very less, I don't want to take the risk.

So my solution was to do a temp root. Temp root really is temporary. It doesn't do any change to your phone file system. So even if you encounter any problem you can fix it by a simple reboot.

Ok now solution part.

  1. Get visionary+ (don't trust other files except this and the one on xda-developers official thread)
  2. Install it in your HTC Desire
  3. Choose Temproot now
  4. After few minutes your phone will be temporarily rooted with required stuff installed.
  5. Now go to your market to install MarketEnabler
  6. In Market Enabler:
    1. First of all from the first page (Actual) choose Save current settings
    2. Now in second page (Settings list) you'll see list of operators
    3. Choose one of the operator from USA, long press on it and choose fake this provider now
  7. Now you can go to market and get access to all apps
Note that this is only temporary root. You'll be un-rooted on reboot. There is option to automatically temp root on reboot but once you've installed your app you can temp root again when you have to update or install other app after reboot.

  3. Hi. Would you know if anybody had used this procedure, including using Visionary+ on an HTC Desire Z 2.3.3? I really want to do temproot. I would appreciate any comment. Thank you.

    1. I suggest you try it yourself as there is no way you'll brick your phone.
