I replied my problem one week ago....the same to me, doing a reboot, it stays on white screen with some warnings like "this is only experimental....", so I must back to bootloader to do a superboot again to have a fully functional S...
My problem was, that I did this mistake, to use superboot from One X.....but aul told me to solve this problem....before solving it, I donnt wanna risk recovery or something else....

Unlocked and rooted.
Thanks a lot Paul.

Biggest challenge in this was to get the phone to bootloader-mode. Had to try 8-10 times both for the unlock and the rooting before successful

Now I'm ready to set up my phone as i like it
My One: Unlocked and rooted (somewhat)

My home on the interwebz:
If it doesn't overclock... it's broken

Hi Paul, should I unroot my Device and flash stockrom to kill this worst effect?
And how can I flash stockroom? Must I Relock Bootloader before or shall I let it unlocked?

How do you backup a recovery, Mine say that my recovery is CWM, when I flash this and then go to bootloader then recovery the phone just restarts, I have no nandroid backup.

How do you mean back up a recovery ? You just keep the file that you downloaded and flashed through ADB - That is your recovery..

Paul, I followed your guide, followed the link to r3 superboot and got the following results:

first SU flash attempt -- didnt do anything, said downloading boot, booting, and nothing was different. No root

SECOND flash attempt - said downloading boot, booting, but this time, the HTC boot screen gave me some warning about development mode, and when I was done booting, I had root.

I also now have "tampered" in my bootloader. Did I miss something here? I've got root, but I'm curious about the tampered AND the message about dev mode.
