    Post [HOW TO] Permanently Root Rezound








    How to root the latest software version: 2.01.605.11

    Prerequisites:
    -Must be HTC Dev unlocked [info here]
    -Must have AmonRa Recovery installed [info here]


    -Boot into AmonRa recovery
    -Under developer menu choose "install superuser and su"
    -This will install the root exploit as well as the superuser app to manage root privileges [if you factory reset and loose the superuser app, re-download from Market, you are still rooted]


    This latest OTA update broke the zerg rush exploit that is commonly used to root, so far the above method is all that is available to root the OTA.


    How to root previous software version: 1.02.605.6

    Note: You may use the above method to root this software version as well

    Other root method requires a Windows machine:

    [These instructions have been taken from this thread here from xda]

    Download - OneClickRoot


    Once you are perm rooted you can use the disable, enable, Wireless Tether and adblock options in the tool.
    ================================================== =============================

    Temp Root Method
    Use the root option in the Tool which is only good for temp root with the locked bootloader.


    ================================================== =============================

    Tool

    New version of temp root to make it easier to use with more options.



    Menu driven including:

      • Temp root
      • Disable and enable application and other packages
      • Wireless Tether
      • Ad block

      • See screenshot below for all options.
    • Temp root now holds until reboot.
    • Disabled applications hold until enabled.
    Updated and Working:
    Latest zergRush package
    Latest adb inline
    Latest Superuser and su binary are installed if not already installed
    Latest busybox
    • Thanks to scrosler for the idea of including the application disabling as part of the tool.
    • Thanks to con247 and meizu devs for the zergRush script that persists until reboot

    NOTE: If this does not work for you try scrosler's or con247's versions. Subtle difference may make one or the other work better for you.



    Instructions:
    1. Extract all of zip file to your PC
    2. Open folder (do not rename files folder)
    3. Reboot your phone
    4. Make sure HTC Sync is not running on PC
    5. Connect phone in Charge only mode
    6. Double click TempRootTool.bat
    7. Run your choices and exit
    8. Mount SD Card in Settings > SD and phone storage
    9. Have fun.
    NOTE: If you do lose root reboot first then reapply.


    Menu Options:


    1) Temp Root Device - Will temp root your phone and install Superuser if it is not already installed
    2) Disable applications - Will disable applications in your application list
    3) Enable applications - Will enable applications in your application list
    4) Edit Applications List - Will put the application list in notepad for editing (currently set for the bloat I disable)
    5) Install Wireless Tether
    6) Install ad block host file
    R) === Reboot your Device === - Will reboot your device. Reboot if you don't need temp root after managing applications
    H) Help - Help information
    ENTER - Exit

    Download Temp Root Tool v2

    They install themselves when you install HTC Sync. If you have not done so, go here. If you can't get the root to work, uninstall HTC Sync and reboot the machine, don't worry, the drivers will still be there.

    Worked like a charm. Thanks, and thanks for the great guide(s).

    As a side note, I noticed that when I right-clicked and ran the batch as Administrator that it would fail, which is wierd because this is usually what you have to do. For those that are having problems, DONT RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.

    I didn't uninstall HTC Sync the first time, and it said I was perm rooted, but Set CPU told me it couldn't get root access, as did TiBu. I uninstalled HTC Sync, ran the rooter again, and BOOM! Root access.

    Now, how do we go about getting wireless tether?

    Worked like a freaking charm. Now my Rezound will be perfect. I think this possibly makes it better than the GNex.

    Go into the control panel and select all programs and find HTC Sync, click on it, then click on remove or change. Once finished, reboot and you should be good.

    Is there an unroot procedure

    Just wonder if there are any details yet about unrooting the Rezound after this.
