You could also use adb
Sent from my rooted glacier running CM7 and the honeybread theme
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?

This should be added to the OP!
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.
