I got my Desire HD and can confirm that VISIONary temp root works.

1: get "VISIONary " from the market
2: Run
3: Leve it ~1min
4: You now have root

This will allow :-

--Backup/Restore From Titanium Backup
--Running apps that requier root access

This Will Not Allow :-

--Editing system / recovery / hboot
We are locked down with the same security as the G2


[UPDATE]

Paul has updated the app now it works much better on the Desire HD. Iv had no issues so far with this updated version

Happy Rooting

p.s. ALL credit goes to PaulOBrien for this awsome APP
