    Rooting the Pro after last update?

    I know that the last update broke root on the Pro. Like an idiot, I waited too long to decide and now I can't root it. Tried a couple of different ways and no dice. Anyone have any info on when we will be able to root the Pro again. Any particular forums or websites to watch? At least the update fixed most of the GB problems...

    If it's anything like the .629 update for the Droid 2 Global, you may be SOL on rooting. 629 afaik hasn't been rooted yet since all the exploits were patched. You might have also been locked out of sbfing but don't quote me on that...

    Yup, unless you saved root with a rootkeeper app, no root after the update. Also, you cannot SBF. Stuck with the GB Junk. Sorry........................

    I just plain waited too long to root it. I had done so on previous phones but for some reason really took my time with this one. Oh well, I'll just have to see if someone manages to get it back.

    I bought this Pro off craigslist and it was already on 2.3.4. I wasn't able to root using the one click for PC or the script for my Mac. May have been my fault, doing something incorrectly, but who knows. Either way, SBFing down from 2.3.4 to 2.3.3 worked fine and allowed me to root. I used RSDlite (PC only—tried the Mac script for this as well, failed lol), and wiped data/cache in stock recovery after nonstop force closes of phone and media. Now it's working, rooted, and bloatless :-) I may eventually bootstrap and flash some ROMs, but I'm cool with the Pro as is for now.

    Just SBF back to 2.3.3, root, save root with OTA Rootkeeper, update, and restore root with OTA Rootkeeper. Simple as that, worked myself.

    Thanks guys. I may give that a go. I have this file, USA Gingerbread 4.6.8_user_signed_1FF.sbf already. Will it work? Not sure where it came from though...

    I haven't tried anything yet. I'm holding out that someone can figure out a way to root it again.
