im guessing what he means is that when you flash this via odin it will give you root perms UNTIL you reboot then you will no longer have root kinda like the temp root the evo3d started with

Hi,

I think what Mashi meant to say and didn't explain too well is that this is a pre-rooted /system image, in the form of system.img.ext4 inside of a pda.tar to be flashed via odin.

Both ways result in a permanently rooted system partition, just this way flashes it directly, leaving the stock kernel intact, whereas my method flashes a modified kernel which then roots the /system partition via a script.

Apparently the download site he uploaded it to doesn't allow non-premium users to download files that large.

Well... a friend got one and wants root as well, and my first thing I told him, pull system, root it, (add su to /system/bin and superuser.apk to /system/app) then flash it back with Odin.
Can anyone tell me that would not work? It sounds like that is what this is...

Thanks da_g for the explanation. Any time you going to work on a sense or ICS port for the device.

Sense will likely never happen unfortunately. Ics is only a material of time... just need a leak for our device, the int leak doesn't really help as there is too many differences hardware wise.
