rooting in CM 12:
Settings>About phone - scroll down to Build number, tap 5 times (after first tap it actually tells you how many times you need to do it)
After the message about Developer Mode activation go back
Settings>Developer options>Root access - set to Apps and ADB or whatever you need.
Install SuperUser app of your choice, install apps that take advantage of rooting/SU, have fun!
I had this phone when it originally came out and was really disappointed with the battery life. It wouldn't even last out the day with moderate to light use. It really made all the difference on what what otherwise a decent phone. I jumped ship to apple for a few years because of this phone but am now back with a HTC One M8, which has great battery life and I'm very happy with. The Desire HD should be buried and forgotten about, quickly.
Am using htc desire hd i want some to help me root it and also want to know if it can be rooted i really need to get 3g on this device

danny, 28 Feb 2015The phone lately doesn't support kitkat at all... FWIW, mine is running 4.4.4. Check Cyanogenmod.com. The Ace is quite slow running Kitkat. Jellybean was better for me.
I bought one recently from a friend. its 600mb RAM. Plus the internal is 1GB internal. The android version is 2.3.5. I want to know if this particular model has different types or its just this one. Thanks!
