alpharev X (still in beta so be careful) does work with 1.06 hboots, making device S-OFFed.


then you can either flash a custom recovery with fastboot and then with the recovery some custom ROMs

or after S-OFFing just run unrEVOked and it will root your current ROM

I thought Alpharev only worked on the GSM Desire.

Yes, the old alpharev (r18) only works for gsm desires.. The new alpharev (alpharev x) works for both desires.

But the thing is, in order to gain S-OFF, don't you need root? In some other places I read, to gain root you need S-OFF....

Please correct me if I'm wrong...
