Need help, MT4G 2.2.1 cannot root using Visionary method
I bought a used MT4G, perfectly working condition. I have not put a SIM card in yet, just using WIFI for now. Everything works fine.I can access Market and install apps. The phone was working fine with a working SIM as I tried it before buying it.
Android version is 2.2.1.
Kernel: 188.8.131.52-g899d047 htc-kernel@and18-2#1
The problem is, I followed the sticky to root this phone, the Visionary method. Everything seemed OK until the last step, I cannot get S-OFF (remained ON) and in Terminal Simulator SU is denied, permission denied.
Now I have tried various Visionary, v11, v14, still cannot make it root.
In Visionary, I tried all combinations of "R/W after root" , "Run Visionary.sh after root" checked and not-checked. No difference.
Please someone share some insights as to what is going on? I am happy with temproot provided by Visionary, but I want to install custom ROMs.
Maybe there is another way to root it?
Many thanks to this forum, and look forward to some new ideas,
