I'm wondering if there might be in the pipeline a method similar to weak sauce where you just downloaded an apk. and you can gain root access without having to go to the trouble of downloading Android sdk , etc, etc, command prompts etc and in my case having to go to the Internet cafe as I don't use PC /Laptop, much and all as I love HTC but it's a bloody nightmare when it comes to rooting compared to Samsung which was simple.

I already tried weak sauce and it force closes when I click on agree but I did read that it was really initially for Verizon in USA so I wasn't overly surprised it wouldn't work.

To gain root escalation in that way there must be an exploitable bug. Until no holes are found, no temp root methods will be out.
