Actually the rooting screwed my phone up so last night I had to reset it. I hit unroot and restarted it and gmail wouldn't load along with my clock widget. I don't need a rooted phone the more I think of it. I'm very pleased. Maybe someday i'll feel more comfortable and do it myself. Thanks for all the input.

I'm sorry it didn't work out for you. Sometimes threads on XDA aren't as clear as they should be. Also you do have the OTA installed, right? I tried to root before I had the OTA and it wouldn't work because it only works if you have the OTA already installed.
I would maybe root again in the future if I could download a program to the computer then drag it onto the SD and take it from there. Not edit all these files and command prompt settings. I also used titanium backup and I had to manually backup every single app on the phone. You would think there would be a backup button that backs up everything. I don't know but I'm good for now. Will miss taking screenshots.

ok i have a quick question i have just got the mytouch 4g and tried the perm-root i thought i followed the directions to a t but nope i had not noticed it was for the phones with the ota thinking i just got the phone that i would have been up to date but im on 2.2 and didnt know that there was a 2.2.1 ota update out. so i followed everything got temp root and put gfree file in the data/local spot and then it says to reboot to check and see if your hboot is changed to 0.86.0000 and mine did and my s-off is off so i go back and try su in terminal and i get permitions denied. what should i do the directions where for the people that have 2.2.1 and i have 2.2 and it halfway got stuff where is should be but im stumped and dont know where to get the full instructions on how to start from stock or if im good and just need to get root please help thanks.
