In about three minutes this video should show a HTC DNA not unlocking even with SuperCID change and the correct file to unlock the phone with.

Just keep at the command. Keep redoing it until it sticks. Took me 5 tries. Now I'm S-OFF & unlocked...with the OTA. Just keep doing it. It'll stick...eventually.

Thanks a lot turning it completely off actually did the trick. Now my next question is since I had to put on a custom recovery to install Super User now do I install a stock recovery so that it can do over the air updates now that I have S-Off. If it updates my stock rom with OTA will I have to flash a custom rom to root it again or will SU still be there because its S-Off?

I'm not sure why'd you want to take the ota, but yes, you'll need the stock recovery if you want to take it. Then you'll need to install a custom recovery and install a superuser package.

Having s off has nothing to do with superuser or the ota.
