Finally Hyuh and Fuses released their next version of JB SOFF which now doesn't require HTCdev UNLOCK and ROOT
(after a lot of pestering from me of-course want proof?? here and here)

THIS VERSION NOW DOESN'T NEED HTC-DEV UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER

UPDATE: it is assumed that you have stock ROM and stock recovery and/or HTC unlock is failing..otherwise follow SOFF JB guide by auggie2k

UPDATE 2: it is strongly recommended to follow the SOFF JB guide by auggie2k if you already did HTCdev unlock and got unlocked bootloader . for guide click here

So for people where HTCDEV UNLOCK is Failing because of new motherboards after replacement ..THIS IS THE DOOR TO HEAVEN...ERRR I MEAN SOFF

Also for people who wants to prevent HTCDEV unlock...this is the tool for you (but it's always recommended to follow HTCDEV unlock way as the wire trick there is easier)

the new version of JB SOFF...NOW JUST requires temporary root---but worry not i have created a simple scripts(windows/linux only) to gain temp root...and by just double clicking them...you can RUN THE JB SOFF TOOL

Right now this tool supports windows/linux only

DISCLAIMER: i wont be responsible if this process bricks your device (which i highly doubt it) ..so run this tool at your own risk

PREREQUISITES:

Quote:

Quote:

  • make sure "usb debugging" is checked in settings->develop option
  • This tool requires HTC drivers to be installed on your pc so
    1.If you people have adb/fastboot setup already then just copy the scripts
    "temp_root" and "temp_root_remove" to the adb folder that you already have and run these scripts when asked(steps below)
    2.If you don't have adb/fastboot setup get these HTC drivers
    click here for htc drivers
    install the drivers ,reboot your pc/notebook and follow the steps below to the letter
    3. Uninstall HTC sync and any other device syncing softwares.. They interfere with the soff tool we are going to use (also when connecting the phone just keep it in charging mode)
  • Make sure you met all the step 1: Pre-requisites from the official Juopunutbear website ..i.e from here http://unlimited.io/juopunutbear.htm
    (you can ignore prerequisites #1 and #2 from the site as this process is an exception)

NOTE: both the "temp_root" and "temp_root_remove" files need to be run..when device is connected to pc normally (i.e from lock screen or home screen)

STEPS TO RUN THIS TOOL:

Quote:

IMP:

1. Make sure you removed the back cover of the phone before starting the below process

2. Also you need the controlbear files ..if you dont have them ..refer point #6 below first

3. Also Sdcard mostly will be wiped ..so use a spare unsed sdcard or do a backup of your current sdcard


Quote:

1.get this temproot-sensation-windows zip file
TEMPROOT ZIP

2.Extract temproot-sensation-windows.zip into a directory on your computer.

3.Plug your HTC SENSATION/XE/4G into your computer via USB. (keep the connection in "charging" mode)
Recommended: Plug your device’s USB cable into the back of your computer if you’re using a desktop PC.

4.Enable USB Debugging on your HTC sensation. Settings >> Develop Options >>USB debugging (checked)

5.Double click temp_root.bat to run the script and wait until it completes. Don't touch the device during the entire process.
Note: if you didn't get the controlbear tools within some time.. To get back the phone in working condition again do the step #9 after this step #5. That would take the phone to normal working condition again

6.get the latest control bear from http://unlimited.io/jb_pyramidlocked.htm
download the "windows Ice cream sandwich" one ("windows Gingerbread" one if on gingerbread ) from the downloads section of the above page
NOTE: you should download the right tool.. The tool will have NOHTCDEV in the name of the downloaded zip file.
NOTE2: links have been removed from the official site....download the tool from below link
ControlBearRelease_pyramid_ICS_WIN_NOHTCDEV.zip

(for OTHERS searching for Windows variant of SOFF tool which involves HTCDEV unlock ..download them from here


7.RUN THE JB TOOL or control-bear now
Follow the Complete set of Instructions(Step 2 | ControlBear: and Step 3 | Wire Trick: ) on running the controlbear from the official Juopunutbear website ...i.e from here http://unlimited.io/juopunutbear.htm

(optional)
excellent guide on how to run juopunutbear SOFF is here (by auggie2k)
JB SOFF GUIDE ---START FROM STEP 5---I INSIST YOU PEOPLE TO "START FROM STEP 5"

8.once control Bear is over..don't do anything to the device and let it be connected--and if the device is left in bootloader---reboot manually using power and vol up/down

9.now you guys need to remove the temp root which you have created first
to do that Double click temp_root_remove.bat to run the script and wait until it completes. Don't touch the device during the entire process

10.congratulations you guys now have a proper SOFF

NJOY YOUR NEW SOFF ...HUGE THANKS TO HYUH AND FUSES FOR THIS NEW TOOL


NEW
ONE CLICK ROOT TOOL


ADDING A NEW TOOL WHICH JUST ROOTS YOUR DEVICE (no recovery required )
this is a replicated work (with minor changes of this post)

Quote:

this tool only works with SOFF devices, Also with devices having HTCdev unlocked bootloader while being SON.

Quote:

STEPS:
1.get the new root tool from root-sensation-zip

2.extract the zip

3.remove the files adb.exe, AdbWinApi.dll , AdbWinUsbApi.dll
(if you dont have any adb/fastboot setup don't delete these and skip step 4 )

4.copy the rest of files to the your adb/fastboot folder
-> if you did SOFF using this guide then copy the reset of files to the temproot-sensation-windows folder which you
have downloaded during SOFF procedure

5.connect your device normally (from lock screen or home screen) to pc
(NOTE: avoid usb hubs and usb 3.0 ports while connecting ..just connect the device directly to pc/laptop)

6.double click on root.bat file
-> when the message "PRESS ANY KEY WHEN THE PHONE BOOTED PROPERLY/COMPLETELY" pops up in the command window
press any key once the phone is completely booted
-> wait until root is success and once success message "EVERYTHING DONE..ROOT SUCCESS...ONE FINAL REBOOT NOW" pops out
without any errors...you are rooted completely

CHANGELOG:

Quote:

EDIT:
1.Did some modification to original scripts(no need of manual reboot now )
2.Adding the linux tar files thanks to "TheSh4wn"
for linux scripts click here
3.Also adding a copy of these scripts as attachments (in case DB link fails )
4. Adding Dev-Host mirrors
temp-root-linux
temp-root-windows


EDIT2: corrected a small typo in linux scripts ..thanks to "splattersxda"

EDIT3:
AUTOMATED UTILITY FOR SOFF AND OTHER FLASHES
also for soff there is a great tool made by "kgs1992"
here is the link to the tool KGS SUPER UTILITY
it not only has automated SOFF feature ..but tons of others which will make your life pretty easy
for more details please check the above link

TROUBLESHOOT:

Quote:

1.temporray root is failing or errors in the temporary root command window

Quote:

Solution:
Make sure you connected your device properly.. No usb hubs, no usb 3.0 ports and connect the phone to back of pc.. If using pc..(un install htcsync and see too)

2 . controlbear is failing by saying no root

Quote:

Solution:
Temp root failed.. So run temp root again.. Also see troubleshoot 1 for running temp root properly

3. wire trick problems ? want some tips ?

Quote:

Solution:
look here
and thanks to "kgs1992" for his informative post

4. tired of doing doing wire trick.. So Want to revert back to normal Working condition

Quote:

Solution:
If you are stuck at Juopunutbear screen


CORRECTION: THE OPTION a) ONLY WORKS WITH controlbear version which involves HTCDEV unlocked, also needs unlocked bootloader

a) if you can go to bootloader.. Then connect the phone to pc.. From fastboot (device should read fastboot usb)

Go to controlbear folder (from where you ran controlbear until now) in pc..
Open command window there
(hold shift + right click->open command window here)

Once you got the window.. Type this
"ControlBear.exe -f" without quotes
This will revert back the phone to proper working condition

b) if you can't go to bootloader.. But stuck at Juopunutbear/black/normal screen... Connect the phone with this screen only to pc

And repeat the above process.. But type "ControlBear.exe -r" without quotes in the command window

During this process.. You are getting cannot detect device errors?
Then try the solution for troubleshoot 1

c) still cant recover the things ? then you need to unlock your bootloader and then try step 3 and 4 from "ROM/Data Recovery" sub section from the below troubleshoot page

FOR MORE TROUBLESHOOT CHK THIS JUOPUNUTBEAR TROUBLESHOOT
This will bring your phone out from Juopunutbear/blank screen

once restoring sdcrad, recovery and boot ..using the above commands was done ..you need to run the
remove_temp_root.bat too ..that will give you proper working phone again (i.e. step 9 )

Once the above process is complete do we need to go through the normal procedure to add permanent root?
