Over on XDA G2 Development, look for the howto/guide thread. Takes a few commands and Paul's excellent VISIONary app. My bet is that Paul will soon create an update version of things which will truly be a single step. Cautionary note: You have to follow the instructions implicitly. First time I did this, I did not get permanent root but I did get S-OFF in the booter. The thread is filling up with confirmations there. Here's the link.


My first error was not running VISIONary again to get the SU binaries in place. Now Titanium Backup, JuiceDefender, Root file managers show superuser granted. Just a final cautionary note, do not error in the commands. You could have a 600.00 or so paper weight.

Thanks everyone.
