Did you put the gfree program in the right directory on you computer? You can also do it using a terminal emulator app on the phone and put the gfree program on the sd card.

i ended up getting the visionary for temp root, put the files in the /data/local then ran terminal and followed the rest of the commands.

everything ran ok - I rebooted into boot loader - and the phone buzzed 3 times, orange light blinking and a black screen!

Bricked? Wheres the unbricking guides?

I decided to finish up on the phone. I figured out it was water damaged too. So I got it to a good working state and let me buddy take it away. I told him to get a newer device soon.

Talking Visionary not temporarily rooting?Try this:
Download the Visionary apk from the 3rd comment, a poster named neidlinger.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=922527

After struggling with Visionary constantly hanging and never doing a temporary root I ran into his replay to another poster on a different thread. It seams to be the original r11 that has temp root and permanent. the new r14 doesn't seam to root and hangs on some phones. (ive read threw multiple post on here).

The one in the link gives you temp root and permanent and seams to work on some phones. I had to downgrade from Gingerbread, mytouch4G and it would never temp root after pushing gfree commands and just hangs. I keep reading in multiple replies some posters are having the same issue.

Hopefully it works for someone else. I spent almost an hour trying to get the original Visionary r11 and kept getting r14 (which doesn't work for everyone) or a dead link and the original creator only provides r14 and sometimes doesn't even download from his site. After that, its a downhill process.

First time using ADB commands, Root, having S-OFF and Flashing!!
