Default [01-05-11]-GingerBreak Root Exploit...WORKING on S-OFF

I have managed to S-OFF my Desire S and can confirm that GingerBreak v1.2 DOES work on a S-OFF DS.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1044765

Simply S-OFF your DS, install the app and run it.
You will get the following message:

"Not sure what happened here. Either the exploit failed or the reboot failed. Please reboot manually and see if you have SuperUser!"

Reboot your handset manually and you should have SuperUser installed with root access. However you will need to install busybox from the market manually or from within Titanium Backup.

Happy Rooting for those with S-OFF.

As long as you have s-on ita kinda useless, but it will give you root, its only temp though... But will give the devs some more working space, I do like!

Okay, I've tried the GingerBreak1.1
The thing is, it rooted my S-ON Desire S with 128mb SD card that I made as a Gold Card inserted. But frustratingly a lot of applications has been force closing.
I did make the 8G memory card that comes with the package into a Gold Card, too. Assuming that it will be successful...but unfortunately, it is NOT.

I'm going to take out of my mind the whole rooting of Desire S for the meantime. Then visit XDA after a month or two...

You should post your findings in the apps thread so that the dev can fix/modify it where necessary. Can you provide a logcat too?

and voila you have the logcat. Also, the output of:

adb shell ls -l /system/bin/su

and

adb shell ls -l /system/app/*uper*

both before and after attempting the root, will be helpful for me! Note that the the result may be "nothing" - that is not weird.
