Easyroot + S-Off - xda-developers
There ya go.
Lol. I just came here to post this.
This installs CWR as well, right? Aren't some people still having issues with that?
I would assume it does, it's essentially just automating the root process.
Also, CWR is working fine for me, I've used it to flash two different ROMs, make backups, and restore a backup.
I believe you still have to flash CWR through ROM manager.
Aah, yeah, forgot that's how you install it after the manual root, herp derp.
Suuuuuuuper simple though. Just DL Rom Manager from the market, and click on install CWR.
anyone tried this yet??
Yes, read the thread that I linked. There are pages of comments from people.
I know...I meant in this thread
Ah, haha, gotcha. ^_^
I rooted last night. This way doesnt look much easier looking.
Crap. I'm still downloading files...tick tock...
Yeah, it appears to basically just do all of the cutting and pasting for you.
I still don't see why people have such an aversion to copying something then pasting it in to a command line, but oh well, each/own.
thread cleaned... Let's keep it on topic and personal attack/debate free
just getting into the android game, should i just get this or is this still the temporary root? will a final, one click come out in a week/few weeks?
This is a perm root. It is the same process as the one that is out already, it is simply all packaged up into an .exe that will do all the adb commands for you.
If you're starting to get in to Android and actually want to learn about it, your best bet is to do the "hard" way of rooting (which really isn't hard at all). It'll help you learn more about the OS. =)
I can't get this to work. I'm running win 7 x64 and I have already downloaded hTC Sync which made the adb error in Device Manager go away so I assume I have adb loaded now. The error says it can't find adb. Am I suposed to place the rooter in a certain folder or do I need sdk loaded prior?
Looking at the post, it looks like there may be two different versions, could explain your issue.
From the post:
"Here are the links: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=YGA7K9GM <- adb need not be previously setup
MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service <- adb needs to be setup as a system command."
Might wanna post on the XDA thread, so the dev can answer ya. =)
You would want to download the one that is for ADB NOT being set up. Once you have adb loaded there is anouther step that you need to do to asign a root folder that ADB will use to push all of the files to and from. This is not included in any of the root instructions, but the steps to do it can be found if you search for them on the web.
It isn't hard at all to get ADB setup, I had to do it a long time ago with my OG Droid.
Here, this will make it wicked easy for y'all to get ADB setup:

Anyone looking for a faster mirror to grab HTC Sync 3.0.5511 head here.
A mirror for the one clicks would be better. I've been downloading for an hour and I'm not even a quarter of the way done
edit: after a 3 hour download and many failed steps, literally every step had to be run more than once, I'm rooted. WINNING! Going to flash Chingy's new ROM tomorrow because he's an animal and one of the best developers around.
