HTC Desire C or Golf is a new HTC handset which has created a good demand in the Android market mainly due to the features and the look it shows. Many users who have passion to explore more within Android would feel the need to root the phone. In fact, we would appreciate their thoughts and courage. Rooting an Android brings out the real charm of the gadget. However, the only drawback of rooting the phone is, there are chances of data loss, phone bricking and loss of warranty.
If you had been moving around since while for a method to root HTC Desire C then here’s a simple method for you. This method involves Superboot usage. Superboot is boot.img and when this is booted it will root the device, the very first time you boot. This involves installation of SU and super user apk.

It is important to note that we have not tested this method on our handset. This method comes from Modaco, the official link of which we have provided at the end of the post.
