The phones that are shipped from asurion (the insurance company that sends out replacements to replace lost or broken phones) most likely have 1.5 rootable ROMS, told me that they do not pay their refurb techs to update software, they are only required to send out replacements in working condition. I called them on friday and got a new hero with 1.5 on saturday. just a lil fyi.

It's not guaranteed that that will make the exploit work, but if you don't translate the shellcode you will not get root even if the exploit still exists in the kernel.

the shoryuken exploit is an x86 linux exploit that was modified for ARM under the name m7 for the Tattoo.

I have modified each of those for specific shellcodes, and they still don't return to #.

They have been patched.

As have the asroot2, m5, m6 and try3 exploits.

/nod I figured as much, but never hurts to throw it out there.

Yeah, I figured they had been patched but I thought I'd throw the info out there as well. Glad to see you guys have a dedicated set of devs working on this as well.

Best of luck!

Although it is great some are returning their phones to downgrade and root again I don't think this is a solution for everyone.

And... If too many people do this, they'll send out a fix for the issues, possibly making it even tougher to root, along with not being so willing to replace them.

True true. But for those of us who where stupid enough (Oh yea I'm talking about myself) to flash to 2.1 before finding out that we would lose root it's the fastest way back to the Rom's we had come to enjoy.

Let's not waste this space to confirm the worst way to go about getting root back. Going to Sprint to have them replace those "broken" phones and turning around and posting your success is a waste of our time.

Exactly, and it's a waste of Sprint's resources too. Though I am tempted to at least visit a store about the dust under my 2-week old screen.
