[temp-root] hboot 1.50 2.**
I've noticed some people looking for a working temp root for software versions 2.08.651.2 and .3 (and now 2.17.651.5) so that they can backup all their files with Titanium Backup before the HTC Unlock, here ya be.
I take absolutely no credit for this.
from jcase's post on tacoroot
I transcribed the root from tacoroot.sh off jcase's git
The license for tacoroot
is included in the zip
The basics for getting local superuser access on the phone I took from a batch file written by Eugene373
Extract all the files.
Make sure wifi is disabled. - Thanks DreamWalkerGuy
This will require a bit of interaction from the user, namely, rebooting from stock recovery back to system, twice. And you have to unplug the phone toward the end. Just follow all the prompts carefully. When it's says rebooting into recovery, wait for the black screen with the red triangle
This is very unstable. The status bar drop down will probably not work, neither will vibrate.
After your done, you can run unroot.bat to make the phone operational again.
I make no claims about the long terms effects of this, I mean for you to run this, back-up your apps and data, then use the HTCdev Unlock which wipes the phone. And of course if this breaks your phone, sets it on fire, and burns your house to the ground with your dog inside... totally not my fault. Do this at your own risk.
I also personally recommend only using this if you already understand what everything in the batch file is doing.
And make sure you understand what the HTCdev Unlock does to the phone, I'm so tired of people bitching about some such ROM being broken because they don't know how to flash a ROM with HBOOT 1.50
If you use this, please head to the original threads and give them
a thanks, or a donation.
