    I can't get it to work on my DInc2. I have USB Debugging mode on. I went through the steps listed. When I run pushroot.bat, I get the following error messages:

    C:\Dinc2>adb push su /data/local/tmp
    adb server is out of date. killing...
    * daemon started successfully *
    protocol failure

    C:\Dinc2>adb shell chmod 6755 /data/local/tmp/su
    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    Unable to chmod /data/local/tmp/su: No such file or directory


    All of the other commands seem to work. I'm assuming the "adb server is out of date. killing..." message is normal?

    Then when I run adb shell, I do get the # prompt. But when I try to do the last step, I get this:

    # /data/local/tmp/pushroot
    /data/local/tmp/pushroot
    cp: can't stat '/data/local/tmp/su': No such file or directory


    I've tried rebooting the phone and my computer, but get the same message. Any suggestions?

    So, just to be clear, does the phone have to be in the rooted state for Android wifi tether to work? Or is root just needed to get it installed?

    Very cool. Worked like a charm. So that file system that I see through adb, is that the phone, or an emulation?

    Will this method be effective for a permanent root? If so, what will be the procedure? Thank you.

    i believe it has to be in a rooted state because that app might need "root" access in order to work without having to tell VZW you want to tether.

    I don't have a need for tether yet so I don't plan on using it. And I can't seem to find PDANet 3.0 on the market place which is the app that has the "hide" feature built in.

    Hope this helps.

    This is for n00bs like myself that had to search around before getting into this and doing it correctly. A lot was copied from the Inc S thread, but felt the instructions were needed here so no need for searching there and crowding their forum with our questions: Temp root for apps required root access (for s-on IS) - xda-developers

    Psneuter exploit is working on DInc2, but because /system is locked on s-on phones, we can't copy su and superuser.apk into /system, apps required root access can't work.

    The following procedure uses psenuter exploit to gain adb shell root, and then copy su (without privilege control ) and busybox into /sbin (which is on rootfs and in the global PATH list) to gain root access for apps.


    The procedure:
    1. Install the HTC Sync software or PDANet software to install drivers for your phone to Windows
    2. Ensure that the device is in USB Debug mode, go to Settings > Applications > Development and "tick" USB debugging and plug in your phone to your PC
    3. Unzip the attached .zip into a directory (like c:\adb)
    4. Open a command prompt by going to start > run and running CMD, and cd to the directory where you extracted the .zip (like cd \adb)
    5. Type "adb devices" > enter, and ensure that your device has been detected
    6. Run the "pushroot.bat" file
    7. Type "adb shell /data/local/tmp/getroot" > enter
    8. Type "adb shell" > enter
    9. You are now in # prompt. Type "/data/local/tmp/pushroot"

    You have to redo steps 7, 8, 9 once you reboot your phone.

    The procedure will have all apps gaining root access.
    !!USE ON YOUR OWN RISK!!

    Known working programs: Root explorer, Titanium backup, gscript lite, trasproxy 2.04, ...
    Some apps check existence of su in /system/xbin , and reject to proceed if the su binary is not exist (like transproxy 3.08). For this kind of apps, this procedure won't help.

    I run Bloat Freezer to rid the VZW apps
    thanks for the tip.

    There are no exploits yet available for the new GB update, that is why it is not recommended to update if you ever want root

    Just in case anyone is wondering, I tried the fix on the OTA Gingerbreak update, and previous comments are correct. It does not work.
