It seems to me that some of my writes to the data partition still remain after reboot, which surprises me. So apparently not everything is lost after reboot. The "root" status is certainly lost though.

I just got my MT4gs and run this script. Works very well kudos to OP.

I got stuck on wait-for-device but re-plugging the device works.

Changed some auto run settings for apps and rebooted. The changes stuck. Thank you.

So on this post they've got the Sensation S-Off. I'm wondering if this will work with our myTouch 4G Slides:

No, not yet; it checks for the phone type before it does anything, and the Doubleshot / 4G Slide is not yet supported. They're in the process of examining it to figure things out, though. There was some trouble with the US T-Mobile Sensations at first, but that was overcome.

Unfortunately, the XTC Clip apparently won't work on the 4G Slide, so let's hope they can get it S-OFF'd. They're pretty much our only hope.

It could be a start since the sensation and the 4g slide has the same guts.

With temp-root, when you run titanium to uninstall or freeze stock apps, do those apps reappear when you reboot?

I know you lose root during reboot, but I wonder if uninstalling a stock app will be replaced after reboot.

It replaces them after a reboot. My guess is that it does a hash check on the /system partition and then if it fails it reflashes it.

If you freeze them, they will stay frozen after a reboot. Not as great as an uninstall... but better then nothing

You can freeze apps with Titanium Pro, but if you dont have Titanium Pro(about $7), Easy Freezy is on sale right now(about $2). Works just as good https://market.android.com/details?i...aco.easyfreezy

PS: Temp-root worked great! Wonder how hard it would be to package this into an app that you can have run when the phone boots. Kinda like the temp-root app VISIONary made for the G2.

Thanks a lot for putting this together!

Saved me from having to wipe my phone after Visual Voicemail got corrupted and I couldnt uninstall or run it. I couldnt even uninstall it via adb.

Using this perma-temp-root, I manually deleted VVM from /system/app as well as from /data/app and /data/data, then I reinstalled from market.
