Just spoke to someone on irc who had some issues rooting with the same kernel version, did you try rage or visionary? He said that Rage worked but visionary wouldn't

I tried them both in order to get a permanent root, but I was not able to permanently root - neither via visionary nor rage. Only the temp. root on bootup with visionary is working as expected.

What's the IRC channel you're talking about? Maybe I can support you in any kind of way.

David

We should first check if it is the same problem. Could you please come into #G2ROOT on freenode and I will guide you through using wpthis and dmesg so we can see what is happening. If it is the same issue that is certainly of interest to us

The only different thing there from my phone is the "CL273327" bit. Not sure if that is significant. But the kernel version is exactly the same, which I suspect is more important.

I'm not sure this thread really wants to turn into a general "I've got problems with perm root" thread ?

I don't think that's what they need though ?
