I am on 2.2, and is suppose to be a easier root. I did it before when I did the root last year.

Should I RUU (your methold) again, before they update the market to "play".
My thinking is they may black list the visionary.apk after the update.

I got it working now, thanks!

Video is directed at 2.3.4 users because it's a lot more difficult.

visionary is included in shift-rootkit.rar

Please stop directing people to other threads.

Anyways, does anyone have the original Visionary.apk to download? Google turns up the ModacoVisionaryPlusr14.apk. Are these the same?

Thanks guys, really appreciate the videos and help. Plus the list of ROMs is great.

make sure you are in airplane mode when using visionary

Thanks for the information. I did find it in the rar after I opened it. Haven't started on anything yet, but just getting all my ducks in a row.

Thanks! It's great to see developers for this phone. I had no clue anyone else bought this thing. It needs some love over stock. I've tried to convince her for a year to let me fix this. She's unhappy there's not a fancier new slider available from Sprint. So this is option 2 and Cyanogenmod 7.

Another PM/Answer:

Sorry for the PM. And you are prob. busy but my buddy flashed my EVO shift with cyanogenmod (cm-7.2.0-speedy.zip ) from this page: http://download.cyanogenmod.com/?typ...&device=speedy and it works but has nothing on my phone like i used to have. for example that is the main app is the voicemail app. i cant find it on the market because there are so many voicemail apps.

I seen videos of yours and i actually rooted my phone on Thursday using your post and videos and that was a huge help! I thank you for that. But now i have to flash my radio because the service i get is not good and i drop calls and most of the time when i send a text message that is over 2 msgs it will get stuck and say the "message cannot be sent"

I was wondering what exact ROM you have and how would i go about flashing it with what i have on here? because it looks like you had the same unlock feature. my buddy said that cyanogenmod is the best one to use but personally it has nothing on it and most of all it is missing the voicemail and the apps i had.

Is your ROM that you used built off of cyanogenmod? and may i have a direct link? with directions on how to flash the ROM? Do i just boot into recovery and format system, dyliex cache, and cache? Then install .zip and choose the ROM you have been using? or should i stay with this one and find all the apps im missing like all of googles apps, voicemail and some apps i used before i rooted but i forget most of them.

Thanks in advance. It would be great if you can point me into the right direction.

By the way nice to meet you and my name is Dipp.

Thanks again for all your hard work it has helped me get to where i am at now! and sorry once again for the PM.

Flash newSense. CM 7.2 is unstable. Make sure you do a full wipe before flashing.

Wish it was that easy but the reason a script won't work with unlock tokens is because each device has it's very own that will not work on other phones. For example if I were to send you a unlock token for another device and you tried to flash it with fastboot it wouldn't work.

Lets get a few things straight shall we. First off don't overestimate who you are. I am very simply trying to help fellow Shift users. End of story. Second your " Method " ( actually instructions ) is not the be all end all to Rooting a device. As for " your thread " , don't sweat it. If you would like I will no longer help anyone on " your thread " . You started it, so I will respect that. I will will stay off your thread. You can continue to choose who, how, and if they get help on your thread. Have fun playing King .

I just don't want users getting confused, that's all. I never said "stay out of my thread". I appreciate your help.
