    What happened? Thread is dead for almost a month. I broke my EVO and got a replacement. It is currently stock. I got Z4 I have run it a number of times. Tried temporary first once then only permanent.
    BloatFreezer keeps telling me I am not rooted. I can't tell otherwise because BloatFreezer is the only thing I want to use. Am I missing a step? Did they kill Z4 or something? Can I still do this with Titanium? TY for any help.

    Is it telling you that you are not rooted or that the NAND is locked?

    it says not rooted. so does titanium. I uninstalled andreinstalled acouple times. also killed in services first...did this with z4 and freezer in various orders etc. I looked at superuser once and it said something about updating/flashing a zip file that I didn't understand. but I had the zip file. its just odd that there is no data or talk about z4 anymore. rt d.

    Not sure why it isnt working. The latest version of Bloat Freezer will even work with Temp Root, but you have to get it rooted somehow, surprised z4 isnt working for you, works great for other EVO users.

    I can't get it to work either. Been trying all day as I don't have a pc. Guess I'll just do it the unrevoked way.

    i had some issues with the temp root on z4 as well. i found that the best way to get it to work again (i had it working, rebooted my phone, and then it wouldn't root anymore) was to uninstall everything (i had superuser, z4root, titanium backup, and root checker installed)

    here is my exact process for getting it to work:
    1.) go into settings>apps>manage apps
    2.) select titanium back up, clear data
    3.) repeat step 2 for any other root apps that you installed (for me this was root checker, superuser, and z4root)
    4.) reboot phone by pulling battery and leaving it out for 30 seconds
    5.) once phone reboots go to settings>apps>manage apps
    6.) uninstall all the root apps (again, for me this was z4root, superuser, titanium, root checker)
    7.) repeat step 4
    8.) after the phone reboots, leave it sitting on the table for 5 minutes, just to let everything settle.
    9.) then i used astro file manager (this is an app that you can download from the market.. it allows you to manage files and folders on the phone/sdcard) to check for any files and folders related to the 4 root programs. i deleted anything i found related to these programs.
    10.) repeat step 4 again...
    11.) once phone reboots let it settle for a few minutes. download z4root and open it BUT DO NOT run it yet.
    12.) go to the market place. download root checker
    13.) go back and open z4root again, run the temporary root function. once it finishes use root checker to see if it worked. if it didn't work go back to z4root and run the temporary root option again. check with root checker... you get the idea. if it doesn't work within 5 tries, reboot the phone, once it has settled again try the temp root again and check with root checker. (i only had to temp root it 3 times before root checker told me that i had root access)
    14.) once you get root access download titanium back up (or whatever other root apps you want to use).
    15.) start using the root functions!


    i know the process is a little drawn out, and i dont really have any basis for how it works aside from the fact that i figured that clearing out all the files would get it to work again... and for me thats exactly what happened. I've got titanium to work, as well as setcpu. (thats all i really tried.. superuser works as well)

    I've made full backups using titanium, and i plan on going full root sometime within the next week so i dont have to worry about reboots and then not having temp root working anymore.

    hope that helps some of you

    This was odd but easier. I just saw prior message when I came to post this. I uninstalled z4 and reinstalled and did temp root then reinstalled Bloat Freezer and it worked! I am not even going to try to figure it out. I'll just be happy!

    This is a very old thread. Processes used were for older Hboot, etc.

    I would recommend you follow new root process for Hboot 2.18
