Default Root and downgrade for Android 2.3.4 {Script included - ShiftySonofA script dl added)

Well, I'm writing this thread because I happily have a root method that doesn't require HTC unlock and you can downgrade to 2.2. Let's get into the information about it:

Required:
ADB
PG06IMG.zip {Downgraded version}
misc.img * {md5sum = c88dd947eb3b36eec90503a3525ae0de}
tacoroot *

*included in zip file

Instructions:
Alright, for this you will need to run the following commands:
Code:
adb push tacoroot.sh /data/local/tmp/taco
adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/taco
adb shell sh /data/local/tmp/taco --setup
YOU NEED TO Hit Vol up + Vol Down + Power all at once after it goes into recovery!
After it reboots type:
Code:
adb shell sh /data/local/tmp/taco --root
and then you use
Code:
adb shell dd if=/sdcard/misc.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
Pull your battery after you check the md5sum of the img by using adb shell md5sum /dev/block/mmcblk0p17
and then reboot into hboot to downgrade

Done.

EDIT: I've created a single sticky which links to all other stickies. We had about 6 so it needed to be tidied up.
