    Has anyone been able to root our new 4.6.4 software?

    I also am wondering this. I upgraded to gingerbread using the one posted here on the forums. I've heard that people have upgraded from 3.8.7 rooted to 4.6.4 and have remained rooted. But I was at 3.8.7 not rooted, can I use aroot to root 4.6.4?

    I would just buy the team black hat app and use the 3.8.7 sbf to get back to the most recent froyo update and then install the rooted 4.6.4 gingerbread update.

    Arg... too much work to go back and do all that... if I wanted to do all that, then I could just root 3.8.7 then applied the update and kept root.

    If you could point us to someone who updated with the OTA update and remained rooted, I'd like to see it. All of the reports I've read from people is that they've lost root. I've seen a few things about random program that are supposed to require root still being able to function, but no major programs that constitute the bulk of why users root. The only people that I'm aware of with root on 4.6.4 are those who installed TBH's rooted update.

    I wouldn't be surprised if its quite a while before it actually gets rooted. That's why if root is important to you, to just go with TBH.

    I never said people that OTA updated kept root. I said people who used the update.zip that was posted on this forum kept root.

    The update.zip posted on this forum is the OTA update. That's why I was asking. I haven't seen anyone here who was able to maintain root with that update.zip, so I was wondering where you saw that at. If there's some sort of secret to it, I want to know. :)

    Haha my apologies. The one posted here is the OTA. But I read somewhere that google123 applied the 4.6.4 update from rooted 3.8.7 and remained rooted. Maybe I read it wrong? I tried looking for the post but could not find it.

    I think the only way to have root with GB right now on the DP is to use the TBH app and load that way. Applying the zip manually or downloading direct over the phone will both break root.

    I was in fact rooted @ 3.8.7 when I installed GB but it broke root. I have since tried GingerBreak, Z4 root, SuperOneClick, aroot and none have worked so far. Still looking for a solution so I can go back to my 120 screen density n underclocked cpu.
