Thanks goes to #TeamWin for Temp Root

This is For Windows only, if you wish to make it work for linux or mac help your self...

Remember, This is still a Temp Root & any Changes made will be Rest back to stock on a Reboot

It's stable & works 100%
I Personally have not lost Root with this new Method

Q. I thought RW was Fixed?
A. Caused by Deleting an apk / file that was already deleted. Journaling shows it still there!
Keep Track of what you delete, as trying to delete something off system that you alread di hangs the /system into RO state.


Before Using!!​
HTC Sync Must be Turned OFF

Put the Phone into Charge Mode only ( Not Disk Drive )

USB Debugging Must be Turned on

What's Fixed:
Revamped due to new Method:
~ Superuser Apps now Function
~ :) If you Lose Root, all you have to do is Open terminal & type SU then type fixit! > No More Rebooting & running the exploit again for R/W on system to get Root back in place :)
~ Fixed R/O Bug!!
~ R/W is now Forced
~ /system is fully editable now! until reboot that is.
~ Busybox is installed to /vendor/bin
~ hex Edited libext4
~ hex edited libfuse.so
~~ This is the Last Update due to it working & Stable ~~

Q. Is this permanent?
A. no, it's a temp root method..

Q. Will I lose SU Access at some point while running the OS?
A. You might, but open terminal & type fixit to get root back!.

Q. What about apps that need a reboot to use superuser?
A. Use Fast Reboot form the market for app that need a reboot..

Q. Can I push & remove items to system & will it work?
A. Yes, but all changes are reset on a reboot.​

Once Downloaded, Unzip & double click on the Run_ME_fre3vo_Root.bat File & Enjoy long lasting Root!

OLD NEWS:
Everyone knows that currently with any temp root, you still lose links to the SU Binary & Busybox links, it's just a matter of time before it happens!!

So after digging around somewhat I found an over sight that HTC might use later for system updates via /vendor/bin, who knows at this point though... Anyways, after amount of time the SU Binary along with busybox links if be in system/bin or /system/xbin gets deleted / removed..

Now, what I did was enable the $Path to /vendor/bin which is in the Sensation export PATH..
Any Calls made from this point either be SU or Busybox don't get deleted nor touched from any App requesting the SU Binary!! I've tested this with alot of apps & the Root sticks in place..

Other than Reboot, it might as well be a Perma-Temp-Root!!

okay.. So I found the Problem.. If you Mount anything as R/O after running the exploit more-less you might as well reboot & start over!

Lesson of the Day!

Don't remount /system as R/O as this disables Perma-Temp Root Completely

Thanks again Eugene! August/September can't get here fast enough!

This is for the Sensation 4G only!

For Linux users, download the following file:

http://fabdroid.com/goodies/Perma-Temp-Root-Linux.zip

Since you're using Linux, I assume you have adb in your PATH and you have your android rules file set up correctly for HTC.

Unzip the contents of the .zip into a folder and fire up your terminal.

Code:
<br />
cd Perma-Temp-Root-Linux<br />
chmod +x new_ROOT.sh<br />
./new_ROOT.sh<br />
It will take a little while to run (the exploit can take up to 30 seconds). Press any key when it finishes to return to your command line.
