With the Sense 3.0 upgrade HTC patched against fre3vo, so we can no longer temproot to use misc_version on that firmware. Lucky us, a new exploit was issued @rootzwiki. This exploit was tested at #g2root (freenode) and was able to temproot a 18.104.22.168 firmware version.
The usual disclaimer applies: Everything you do is your responsibility, No one outside of you can be held accountable for any state you put yourself and/or your phone into. If you did not donate to EFF and rooting is illegal in you country, you should read this guide for intellectual purposes only (sorry dude/dudette).
If you meet troubles search for help at IRC: freenode, #g2root
make sure your phone is in 'charge only' mode and the 'fast boot' feature is turned off.
What you need:
misc_version NOTE: you need THAT version of misc_version. Earlier versions would not work.
flashgc for a goldcard
put all files in your platform-tools directory (unzip misc_version and tacoroot.sh)
adb push tacoroot.sh /data/local/tmp/tacoroot adb push misc_version /data/local/tmp/ adb push flashgc /data/local/tmp/ adb push PD98IMG.zip /sdcard/
After all files are pushed you have to run tacoroot:
adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/* /data/local/tmp/tacoroot --setup
adb shell /data/local/tmp/tacoroot --root
adb shell cd /data/local/tmp ./misc_version -s 1.00.000.0 ./flashgc ./tacoroot --undo
adb reboot bootloader
Guhl and Scotty2 - they made all this possible. Guhl created and coded misc_version and lots of other good stuff to make unlocking our phones doable and safe.
