If you have adb.exe running already, try killing that process in task manager and starting again.

Right, so I used the toolkit for perm root, it worked, (kind of) system is still write protected in recovery and doesn't have busybox installed. I've tried reflashing the recovery manually and uninstalling SU... however that doesn't seem to unroot my device. Even tried using the unroot option within SU app. Could you assist with un-doing whatever your perm-root solution does?

Right now the device is playing up so much I can't even flash another ROM (ARHD) on it! It detects system tampering in recovery and reboots.

Edit: Fastboot also shows a "tampered" flag..

fastboot shows a tampered fag after you unlock the bootloader via HTCDev. there's a thread in general (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2702575) that has a walkthrough on getting the system partition writable for busybox installs.

i don't have mine yet, so i can't confirm the methods, but it may be worth a shot.

I've tried that method multiple times, System write can be enabled when the module is loaded via insmod but is somehow lost after a reboot as a all changes to /system/etc/install-recovery.sh or init.d

My plan was to try un-root and try re-rooting the device via another method/flashable zip but so far no luck to remove the changes made..

that seems odd, since it should be calling the r/w mod every time the device boots, giving you r/w priv's. sorry, don't know what to tell ya then. like i said, everything i know has come from reading, since i don't own it. just remember that the M7's system being write protected and it was annoying to get around it.

Return to Stock
Considering purchasing this device :

After using this tool kit to root and install a custom recovery is there an option within the tool kit to "return to stock" to allowing for returning the device to the AT&T or other ?

Thanks

You can unroot it from the SuperSU app. You get the Tampered flag when you flash a custom recovery and/or kernel. That's normal.

What version of Windows are you on? 7? 8? 8.1?

R/W must be added to the ROM. Stock doesn't include it, but custom ROMs like ARHD usually have it enabled.

The closes to returning to stock is by restoring the backup that was made from recovery. There is no official RUU that you can flash (That I know of at least).
