I got superCID using that method and then followed the instructions in the OP of this thread and I'm S-OFF.
Confirm this worked to get my non AT&T cid updated to 11111111.

Then the instruction in OP flowed through without issue, S-OFF achieved

So was getting the ADB offline error at first but updating my SDK fixed that. Was looking good until I first booted back into the OS after flashing the OneX.zip and now it's stuck at 'offline' again when i check devices, and I can't perform any of the commands in step 8 or even restart now. I tried unplugging it, turned USB debugging off and on, rebooted the phone, still says my device is offline. SDK is updated now.

Really looking forward to S-OFF, any ideas?

Not sure about touchscreen issues as I don't have the updated TS drivers. But the kernel flashed

So PJ8312000-OneX.zip is just firmware.zip from 3.17.707.1 OTA.

Boot into RUU mode, where flashing firmware.zip is allowed anyways.
You push a firmware.zip only once where it would require 3 times to be actually fully flashed.
Boot into system and push a crafted binary.

So the facepalm exploit is totally just HTC end up leaving eMMC security off while the device is preparing for a firmware.zip flash?!
Wow HTC.. Facepalm indeed.

Some report the phone can be in either of the states below, not just SUPERCID state but perhaps the pre-update state may have bad side effects, eg what is this "pre-update":
FAILED (remote: 92 supercid! please flush image again immediately)
FAILED (remote: 90 hboot pre-update! please flush image again immediately)

Well done HTC; Flush immediately otherwise eMMC security will be off

Well done to beaups for working this out!

Was curious about how this works. Also glad to hear it works on 2.14 hboot. Now I can finally begin.

Yep works fine on hboot 2.14 on my Asia MID PJ8312000.

The signed firmware.zip is obviously key to RUU mode turning off eMMC security, then it is just sloppy HTC not turning it back on if you exit before finishing.
