I only have to download the right RUU and install it on my HTC device to restore it completely, right?

When you install a rom by a RUU, it will also flash the stock Hboot version. Take a look at the shipped roms thread.

Hboot 1.27 is clearly ICS.

Download official RUU from here (RUU_PYRAMID_ICS_HTC_Europe_3.32.401.5_Radio_11.69 .3504.00U_11.22.3504.07_M_release_246089_signed)

This is the latest official ICS RUU for unbranded Europe Sensation.
If your device is branded or your region is not Europe then search for the appropriare RUU.

Run the exe from pc with phone usb plugged. It will restore your phone as "out of the box".

Hope it helped.

Man I really don't understand any of this lol......... I'm just gonna ask a few questions and you guys can either respond or not....

1) I am on stock ICS, rooted, with HTC Dev Unlocked and using Clockwork. If I wanted to un-root, remove clockwork and re-lock the Hboot... How would that go exactly? 1.27.0000 etc...

2) I don't understand why getting S-Off is so difficult. If one would simply downgrade from ICS to GB, wouldn't that change the Hboot version to a lower one, and then you would be able to use the Revolutionary way? Or is that not possible to do? Or does the downgrade not affect the Hboot?

3) Which Custom ROM am I able to flash at the moment? Any, based on ICS?

Hi,

1. I think that you can just run the RUU in the post above yours.(If your phone is European)
2.Downgrading is not possible on hboot 1.27.000
HTC have locked you out of this possibility.
3.As you say.Any 3.32. based ICS ROM.

It can be done only by running corresponding RUU which can be found based on your firmware(in your case it is 3.32) and cid (to get cid "fastboot getvar cid")...if you are unbranded i.e. cid is HTC__001..then you can run the above mentioned ruu...or else you should get the appropriate one...if you can't find it then post your cid along with radio..we can find the appropriate one for you

If you are S-ON you can't downgrade...not by running a RUU or by flashing firmware directly...that's why people use revolutionary first to get soff and then they'll flash unlocked firmware to update the hboot and all...

It you are SOFF you can literally do anything ..upgrade, downgrade..its your choice..

As you are unlocked via HTC dev..if you update your recovery with 4EXT latest one which has smartflash mode ON(exclusive SON flash)..you could have any ROM
