Talking [GUIDE] Fre3vo / Fre3dom Official Thread

[GUIDE] Fre3vo / Fre3dom Official Thread (Discontinued)

#teamwin is proud to announce the Fre3vo tool for the HTC EVO 3D and Sensation!

What is Fre3vo: Fre3vo is a temp-root acquiring tool, allowing users access to a root shell on their HTC EVO 3D and Sensation devices.

What is Fre3dom: Fre3dom was the name of the tool being developed to enable S-OFF on the EVO 3D and Sensation. This has been abandon since AlphaRevX has announced on twitter that they've had the devices open for weeks now.

Fre3vo can be downloaded here: http://tinyw.in/1lJ

Prereqs:
1. You must be able to push files via adb to your device.
2. You must know what a shell is.

Instructions:
1. Download the fre3vo zip
2. Unzip the fre3vo binary
3. Push the binary via 'adb push fre3vo /data/local/tmp'
4. Change the permissions via 'adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/fre3vo'
5. Run the binary via 'adb shell /data/local/tmp/fre3vo'

If all goes well, you'll be kicked back to your computer's command prompt. (Some may get more messages, but it seems the Sensation buffers the stderr more than the EVO 3D)

run 'adb shell' and you should have a '#' prompt instead of '%'.

This is temporary root. A reboot will clobber it. There are many threads with scripts for doing what the community has dubbed "perma-temp root", which lets you run all your root-based apps.

A big question: SU

We know, there are issues. This is for developers to get us our root apps working. We're already cranking into ways to get this going... Really!

And this is why we released the binary in this form... Because as a whole, we can come together and find ways to do everything we want with these phones. Mounting new partitions, or linking in other partitions with write. These are ways being explored to get apps to play nicer with temp-root.

This worked for me after getting temp root...

ubuntu$ adb remount
ubuntu$ adb shell

# remount -o remount,suid /dev/block/mmcblk0p24 /data
# mkdir /data/bin
# exit

ubuntu$ adb push busybox /data/bin
ubuntu$ adb push su /data/bin
ubuntu$ adb install superuser.apk
ubuntu$ adb shell

# ln -s /data/bin/su /system/xbin/su
# ln -s /data/bin/busybox /system/bin/busybox

After that, I was able to fight with Titanium Backup and it loaded successfully.

Are the rumours of Teamwin managing to get S-OFF after gaining temp-root true or false? Someone posted on twitter that Teamwin had managed it.

In this day and age i do not know what to believe so i thought i'd ask.

NOTE: Not asking for an ETA, just curious if it was true or not.
