(security hole is closed in this version)
Did you tried OTA RootKeeper and did it works after re-install firmware?
Otherwise we running in the risk to lose all opportunities to root the device after re-installation of latest firmware 3.2.1R2.
If OTA RootKeeper works well, we could implement the easy steps in your script for a "second chance for rooting".
Details on German Community:
thanks for posting this info - its very important to stay rootable..
about OTA RootKeeper - i've got it installed and got 'protected root'.
Got to check if it works ok in details.
As far as I remember - it worked, but not from the beginning.
I've already reflashed with rootkeeper,
su-backup stays, after reflash you need to reinstall Superuser app.
Will try that when I get back home later evening.
BTW - I think I could get some other, 'extra rootkeeper' for us,
as far as I remember - with some proper permissions we could get
unwritable build.prop - then we could have opportunity to reflash
older 'rootable' zip, if another ota would lock the exploit vulnerability.
I had this one time - reflashed new ota, and build.prop remained untouched
