The title probably says it all but I'm curious if it's even possible to change the *LOCKED* to *UNLOCKED* after getting S-OFF and flashing the ENG H-Boot?

When I tried to use HTC-Dev, it gave me an error message.

Thoughts?

It is possible. Maybe you didn't see my reply to you in the other post.

The process is the exact same as the one with S-On bootloader. Make sure your identification code is correct and you include the header and the ending

I got it. Thanks for the tip man. Guess I had messed something up the first time I tried and it told me the unlock token was bad.

Think I copied the "INFO" parts too. This time it went through smoothly.

I'm now officially ENG S-OFF, HTC Unlocked, and SUPERCID.

Bring it on XDA. I'm ready.

Rename to PH85IMG.zip and place on root of external sd card.

Reboot into bootloader and install it.

Thanks man!

Edit: What are the improvements with the ENG-HBoot rather than the Juopunutbear hboot?

engineering boot allows for extended adb commands. im curious, why do you feel the need to unlock via htc.dev?

Just wanted the word "UNLOCKED" instead of "LOCKED".

I know it makes no difference since I have ENG hboot but I wanted it anyway.

Looks better on the bootloader screen

LOCKED
RUBY PVT SHIP S-OFF RL

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I re-unlocked the bootloader with the original "root" instructions wich worked well... Kinda weird, I read it wasn't supposed to work... When I'm in hboot, it scans the sdcard for ph85img.zip but it doesn't see it...???
