Prompt [ROOT] 1.85 One Click Root! - ACT NOW, MAY NOT LAST FOREVER!

EXPLOIT NO LONGER WORKING DUE TO OTA UPDATE. BE WARNED.

Thanks to beaups for his exploit!

Download the zip file below, unzip it somewhere, run root.bat with your phone plugged in and usb debugging enabled. Currently this is for windows only.

Includes a fully working su binary and Superuser.apk, make sure to update the su binary the first time you run SuperSu!

Follow the instructions on the screen, they are very simple, only one thing to do!

Download:

HELP SECTION:

After you are rooted, I strongly suggest you unlock your bootloader immediately!!
http://briefmobile.com/how-to-unlock...e-x-bootloader

Make sure HTC sync is NOT RUNNING (down in system tray)
Make sure phone is set to "charge only" and usb debugging is enabled!
Make sure Wifi is enabled and connected! (seems to help, but not required)

If you are stuck at "waiting for device to reboot" for a long time or you get "/data/local.prop was not created, exit the script, try again." followed by lots of junk, reboot your phone and push your clock forward two days, reboot, and try again.

If the update fails to check for updates, reboot your phone and push your clock forward two days, reboot, and try again.

usb drivers, if you need them: http://binary100100.googlecode.com/f...r3.0.0.007.exe

Go to Settings, ATT Software update, check for updates.

Waiting for device to Reboot...

check out the bolded part

kick the date forward two days and reboot your phone, run the script again

you might have to do that a couple times...

Is that taking into account the unstableness and the potential for it to spontaneously reboot on its own?
