The new update blocks the current ways of attaining root for the device. However, if you have root before you update, it is possible to retain this during the upgrade.

Script is online!

A newer version is available here:

No Gingerblur needs root to push its files, also if you need a host I can host

In reference to "adb.exe push /data/local/tmp > NUL 2>&1" is now, yes?

Also busybox "mv /system/xbin/su /system/bin/frozenfish" clobbers the copy from system/bin, if there is a difference, i thought it was generally a symlink to /system/bin.

Other than that, good idea in renaming the binary file, I probably won't use frozenfish in case Motorola targets that now..
