I'm on day 2 of the great quest for permanant root. I have followed the guides here and here to the letter and still my hboot shows "S-On". Hboot says:


Visionary will temp root, I go through all the steps, the md5's match, but when I go into hboot, it always says S-ON. How do I get this thing rooted?

Did you try to permaroot anyways?

I'd try a factory reset and then try again.
