Just because ADB doesn't AUTOMATICALLY go into root, doesn't mean you've lost it. You can still invoke "su" after "adb shell" to get to root. "SuperUser", "adbWireless", and other applications that need root all do this (in effect), and you have to, too (unless you want to steadily drain the battery to ZERO if not charging).
- Steps 5.2 and (especially) 5.3 make it automatically go into root when you invoke ADB.
- Step 7.2 removes the "automatic root" when you invoke ADB. However, you are still rooted.
If you don't do step 7.2, your device will not sleep and you will steadily drain the battery to ZERO if not charging.
