    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.

    No permanent root yet on this phone? I can say I had issues with my TB Bluetooth not pairing with my Subaru, my previous DInc didn't have issues.

    No permanent root as of yet unless an XTC Clip has been used to S-off the device

    Did you have the pairing issues before or after root? Or both?

    How does one "un-do" this temporary root? I hear some people have problems pairing bluetooth devices and needed to remove the root to restore the BT. How is this done?

    Hold the power button, and choose reboot or power off, then turn it back on

    That simple

    After successfully installing the temporary root, I'm able to freeze Verizon's plethora of "bloatware." Is there any way to make that freeze permanent? It only seems to last until a reboot. (Sorry for my ignorance on the subject, but I'd rather ask the regret not having done so).

    no the freezing lasts until you unfreeze/defrost them. while the root goes away, the apps will stay frozen.

    You need to go into Bloat Freeze's options and choose Titanium Backup method for the bloat ware to stay frozen after a reboot.

    Thanks a bunch! I successfully temp rooted with ease. Installed TB and froze all the bloat ware then restarted and everything is looking good.
    I had three random reboots yesterday but still not sure of that cause

    Anyone get the root done and successfully using wifi tether? I know the root worked because I can freeze apps using titanium but when I start wifi tether it says I don have root permissions

    Looks like the getroot did not work/run right, when you do step 8, the shell should start with the '#', not the '$'
