About a month ago I went through the hboot downgrade process to try to get s-off. I had all the right drivers installed and everything else. Revolutionary just kept giving me an invalid beta key. Because revolutionary didn't work I updated back to hboot 1.5 cause I already had root with that. With the New ics roms coming out and having to update the firmware, I decided to do the downgrade again, but revolutionary refuses to work. Invalid beta key is the message I get. And to get to the point, I want to know if anybody has any solutions for this. I've heard of a few people that said one week it didn't work and next week it did, or other stuff. Anybody have any helpful information?
Any tips or tricks are appreciated, will try just about anything

Try replacing the uppercase i's with lowercase L's.

Does revolutionary actually use your actual serial # to check against the beta key? Meaning, if you had another one that worked (like mine) and used it, would it still refuse because it doesn't match your device?

This sounds elementary, but are you typing in the Serial yourself or are you cutting and pasting the serial # from the revolutionary prompt? When I ran revolutionary, it prompted me for the beta key and had my serial # in brackets, like [HTC2018482] or whatever. I copied everything into the brackets, pasted it into the site, and got my key that way. It might be a good way to make sure you're getting the same values that revolutionary is seeing.

When I used it, I had to copy and paste the key, manually retyping it didn't work. Hopefully this helps

Yes I do, but it never interferes with what I do.
