    my question is regarding the ability to use app2sd+ (method using the extra partition on the sd card).

    I am in the US with uscc. I have a desire that was stock and stock upgraded to 2.2. I am not to familiar with rooting but ventured into it with my gtab and am now motivated to try something with my desire. however i have read in half a dozen forums that the US cdma desire with hboot 1.06 and s-on is unrootable as of right now. however people have been able to temp root with z4root but they loose root after a reboot.

    my question is, with the above conditions, it that enough to use the app2sd+ method? I read that it can be flashed onto any rom but i didn't know if it would be possible with this phone. I don't know enough about what areas of the phone are writeable with s-on and limited root and if this was achievable.

    please keep in mind that I'm an inspiring noob when it comes to rooting so I need things simple still. Thanks

    unfortunately you cannot as you need the rom to have init.d support which it doesnt by default and it also needs to be part of system which you have no RW access too.

    It needs to run at boot too or all links to apps would be broken, meaning you couldnt regain temp root either.

    Maybe install script manager to manually run script after temp root, but you'd have to install temp root and script manager every reboot.. even if that works... its not worth it
