The Photon 4G AIO root v2/v3 are a much more simpler way to go about rooting. Start the program, plug in phone, go through the screens, and rooted.

Please donate with the "Donate to me" button on the top left of this post, if you are willing. I don't promise anything new in the future. It would just be a thank you for this hack.

Old thread, if you have problems with this


Instructions:
Use your favorite method to get photon-torpedo.tar into /data/tmp
Install Superuser from the Market
Install Android Terminal Emulator from the Market
Run Android Terminal Emulator
Run cd /data/tmp
Run /bin/tar xf /data/tmp/photon-torpedo.tar
Run /data/tmp/photon-torpedo.sh
Run /data/tmp/install-su.sh

Download:
Photon Torpedo


Thank you dgood!
Thank you Yay!


Thank you it worked for me on my US 2.3.5 ROM to root

Ok, I know this is a really old post, but I just wanted to say thanks to both edgan for the method and cornelious2 for the extra instructions (quoted) -- I have a mac, so having this method to do everything from the phone was awesome! Thanks!

What's really nice is, if you Lose Root all you need to run is.

/data/tmp/photon-torpedo.sh
/data/tmp/install-su.sh

Which is what I had to do today.
