First of all, please let me thank all the people involved into this process:
o unrevoked and AlphaRevX teams (for their great tools)
o davidreece (for reporting the temp root method) http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1190992

Since Revolutionary is not able (yet) to acquire root access on our ROM, I thought I'd get a temp root access BEFORE launching Revolutionary.
As a matter of facts I have successfully S-OFFed my device running the latest 1.47.401.4 ROM (HBOOT 0.98.0002).
I could not test this method on any other ROM version, but as long as you are able to get temp root using the commands below, you should be safe to go.

So let's get straight to the instructions:

PREREQUISITES:
o You know what you are doing. Messing up with your NAND implies a risk that you should be aware of.
o Android SDK installed. Download the "android-win-tools" from the following link otherwise (thanks .sh4d0w.) and extract the files to your \Windows directory: http://www.4shared.com/file/KK6KvF7Q...win-tools.html

HOW TO:
o Get your version of Revolutionary from their site: http://revolutionary.io/
o Ensure your device has "Debug USB" enabled and is connected to your PC in "Charge only" mode.
o Download fre3vo from the following link: http://forum.xda-developers.com/atta...6&d=1311240968
o Open a command prompt and issue the following commands to get temp root access: (thanks again, davidreece!)
Code:
adb push fre3vo /data/local/tmp
adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/tmp/fre3vo
adb shell (you'll get a $ prompt)
/data/local/tmp/fre3vo -debug -start FAA90000 -end FFFFFFFF (you should be kicked off adb shell and get back to your command prompt)
adb shell (you should get a # prompt now)
exit
o DO NOT disconnect or switch your device off!!
o Now that your phone has temporary root access, launch Revolutionary and follow instructions on screen.
o In a matter of seconds you will see the new HBOOT in place
o You may want to answer Y when prompted whether to install CWM or not. It will install the new 4.0.1.4 version of the tool.
o Download the attachment below and flash it via CWM. It will install su and Superuser.apk. Restart your phone and you'll end up with a rooted stock rom.

You should be able to achieve the same results on Linux as well.
That's it, folks.

1. download and install JDK
2. download and install Android SDK
3. run "SDK Manager.exe" and install Android SDK Platform-tools
4. in \platform-tools\ you found adb.exe

@ slvrbllt
Add this to the tutorial.
Copy content on adb-win-tools from here>> http://www.4shared.com/file/KK6KvF7Q...win-tools.html
To C:/Windows
This is for:
'adb' is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file.
Because most of us don't have those files preinstalled in windows.

Work's like a charm! Thanx!

Although my antivirus (Norton Internet Security) killed revolutionary when i tried to download CWM.. No hassle though, just installed it manually afterwards..
