No, it was working fine. I did my homework and realized I needed to reset it after perm root but before full root + recovery, and it might not work. Glad I did, 'cause that's exactly what happened. I cleared it then tried to re-initialize it before I went any further. I REALLY wanted root and the only reason I hadn't already done it was the potential Wallet problems. After scouring here and XDA, I thought this might work, so I tried it. It did (so far.)
I didn't want to full root even with clearing it if the Wallet wouldn't work, even if it was only temporary. I have buy back from Best Buy so I can get the EVO that transforms into a spaceship when it's released in 2 years. So I figured even if I broke the secure element this would make me so angry I'd hurl my EVO onto asphalt, then just walk into BB and get a new one.
(The buy back is cheaper if you pay BB for 1 month of insurance.)
