2.3.4 was patched for the exploit in 2.3.3 and all the devices with 2.3.5 have recoverys so that they can be rooted by using a update.zip with a custom recovery for them.

We do not have a working recovery, so we actually need to root first, then flash a recovery that we would have to make for it to work.

Thar is the key man, if we can simply downgrade (to froyo) we can root it easy with z4root our something and go to freakin work on this thing!

I think we have a good shot at getting 4.0, but who knows, we've already been EOLd

but they said that 4.0 would be for almost any and all devices. The HTC EVO 4G was EOLd and there's no way in heck you can make me believe its not getting the OTA update!

Gentalmen i belive i have found a way to root!!!!!!!!!!!!! I downloaded Superuser efgh on my Echo. and i realized that all it needs is to be put on the system/bin or system/xbin on the phone. sadly i cannot move it there because the phone will not let me. i plugged in my phone to browse the files but only have been able to see the sdcard. i need some program to see ALL the files on the phone. any ideas?

root explorer or file expert will let you see, browse and read the system folder. Do believe you need root to write though...
