Default Push Button Root for EVO Shift?

When last I looked, there were only 2 options for rooting the EVO Shift running 2.3.3...

1) a very convoluted temp root and

2) an equally convoluted perm root, provided you could downgrade to Froyo first.

May device came from Sprint pre-loaded with 2.3.3, so downgrading isn't an option. I was hoping there was a super simple, "push here dummy" option for rooting OR temp rooting, such as fr3vo, z4 or GingerBreak, that I could load, run, and repeat as/if necessary.

Thanks!

I tried this and it didn't work for me on my shift

I was wondering if anyone had tried evildevnulls shift root kit and if that was worth trying
