Any idea on what to do?
Your file manager does not have root access, get root explorer or tru_drew's option which is free on the market (i think astro works as well)

You could also use adb

Unhappy FML, have no clue what to do

i have a virgin MT4G (specs below) , i did the guide so i get the S-Off, but when i go into terminal and type su, it says access denied. idk why im getting that if my S-Off is there. doesnt that mean that its permanently rooted? i was reading through the threads, and thats what i understood from it. please correct me if im wrong. i couldnt do the titanium back up, terminal was "access denied" i tried attempting multiple visionary + temp roots and then tried the attempt permroot now, but regardless of what the S-Off teases me with, its not rooted... can anyone help?

Default Noob question, but:

Can we uninstall VISIONary? Or do we have to keep it installed, just with Root on Boot turned off?

I had that same issue for whatever reason the root was not stickin even though i had S=OFF, grankin suggested me to change my bootloader to the engineering one and maybe that would fix it. In fact it did, you will find the steps to flash the eng bootloader at the end of the guide

1) If after using the gfree method, you install a custom rom and wish to revert, understand that some custom roms have a different kernel than the stock kernel.
2) In order to completely revert:
Use the stock T-Mobile rom, changed to PD15IMG.zip to convert the rom/kernel back to stock.
After the convert to stock is complete
Install Visionary from SDCARD after enabling unknown sources/usb debugging AGAIN.
Use Visionary to temproot like you would if you were rooting (your root will be dead after stock T-Mobile rom but S=OFF will still be there)
DO NOT REBOOT.
After getting Temp-Root, you can do the following:
Use adb push to put gfree on /data/local again.
chmod 777 gfree again as well, this is important.
Now do the ./gfree -f followed by the dd if=/blah step.
Once that's done, do NOT reboot.
While in terminal with SU still enabled, cd to your unroot directory and sh unroot.sh.
After doing this, you will 100% guaranteed have s=on!!!

The reason people are having trouble with s=off still sticking is because after flashing a custom rom, gfree can't find the necessary files to run fully. Without gfree finishing, unroot.sh will not be able to turn secu-flag back on.
I can't seem to get S=Off. I had cm7 ROM on there and I did the steps to revert and did not work. I got the stock hboot but still S=off. I tried your method and got the original ROM back on but this did not work. I tried 2 different part7 backups I had but neither worked.

I still have S=off. Any other ideas?

Did you make sure to push gfree on data/local again and chmod it again? After flashing stock rom, you have to push gfree again and chmod it because it won't be there anymore.

You are not on the directory where gfree is located .

If gfree is on /data/local then

Su
Cd /data/local
Chmod 777 gfree

I'm not sure who you were answering but for me yes I did. Not sure why I can't get S=on
