HTC Vision // Desire Z Temporary Rooting

1. Download this package: MegaUpload
2. Copy the content of the package in a folder called "temproot" in your SDCard root.

3. Execute this script:
Code:
#!/system/bin/sh
cp -R /mnt/sdcard/temproot/* /data/local/tmp/
cd /data/local/tmp/
chmod 755 *
./rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
ps
4. Restart Terminal Emulator

5. Execute this script:
Code:
#!/system/bin/sh
/data/local/tmp/busybox killall rageagainstthecage-arm5.bin
mount -o rw,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 /system
/data/local/tmp/busybox cp /sdcard/temproot/Superuser.apk /system/app/Superuser.apk
/data/local/tmp/busybox cp /sdcard/temproot/su /system/bin/su
/data/local/tmp/busybox cp /sdcard/temproot/busybox /system/bin/busybox
chmod 4755 /system/bin/su
chmod 4755 /system/bin/busybox
mount -o ro,remount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p25 /system
Now your phone is temporairily rooted and you can even get root on adb.


Thanks to:
*- C-Skills for the exploit
*- Guys in G2 section for testing it.

G2 and Z are the same device.... HTC Vision.
Radio ROMs and BootLoaders should be compatible, we only need someone that can verify, but AFAIK a G2 owner flashed a full Desire Z ROM and worked without problems.
