See that little grey tape holding the chip in place. Plus all those chips etc must get hurt by dust etc

I put it back on I think it will make a difference one day

Done the wire trick numerous times and it reboots the phone but it seems like all it's doing is wiping the sd card. Using speaker wire to do it. Cut open some usb cables but they just seemed way to thick. Anyone have this happen to them? Can't be that far from getting it right. Could I possibly be touching the wrong pin? I'm pretty sure that I'm on the right one but they are pretty close together so if thats the problem then I just gotta keep trying.

Cover off, paperclip acquired, fastboot flashed jb_boot.img.

Symantec Enterprise is ringing off the hook. I hope this is actually safe.

I don't think you are supposed to flash jb_boot.img, unless it's a different procedure for Linux. On Windows I just connected my phone to my PC and ran the ControlBear program, followed directions from there. I did not flash jb_boot.img at any point.

If I have all of my fastboot files on my windows computer, would it matter if I switched to a linux to get S-Off?

a wire tie did the trick for me. It's rigid enough where you can easy control it, and it is also already shielded. I had no issue with the wire trick as it was successful both times I ran the program (had to run the second time because the first time around it was stuck at "found device, waiting").

Good luck to those of you that will be attempting the procedure.
