HTC Wildfire "soft" rooted

So, it’s not the big, badass hard root that enables custom ROMs and NAND unlocks, but the HTC Wildfire now has a method of rooting that allows the installation (and more importantly, the execution) of all those wonderful “root only” apps on the Android Market.

Despite this limitation, you Wildfire owners can’t really grumble, as now you can wirelessly tether your internet connection, backup your apps n settings, or take screenshots, among other tasks.

Full details on how to get it on your phone are over at XDA, but note that you will have to re-enable root every time you reboot your phone. Baby steps, baby steps…
