Default How to S-OFF EVO V?

I've got my bootloader unlocked. I tried to get a KitKat rom installed, but no luck. I followed a bunch of steps from one of the threads here. It has me use ADB and TWRP. It says S-OFF is optional.

I can get all the way through flashing a rom, but when I reboot it's not there.. just my stock Android 4.0.3 that came with my phone.

Maybe S-OFF is needed? But I can't get S-OFF to work.. I didn't want to do the wire trick. I have software from here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2436217

It says check best method. But in there my bootloader version is not listed.. 1.58. I tried more than one S-OFF software with no luck. One of them was Revolutionary which required it to be 2.15 or 2.16.

What to do?

This is the wrong device thread. This is htc evo 4g not evo 3d/evo v.

But I will tell you the wire trick is safe and easy if you run it from Ubuntu. You dont even have to install Ubuntu you can run it from a cd and that method has resulted in 0 bricks. The windows version has had a few bricks so it is not recommended.

Fyi only htc ics roms will run on hboot 1.58. Gingerbread sense and all aosp require older hboots and you can not downgrade hboots unless you get s-off.

Is there a link for the KitKat rom you tried to install?

@toplist the post is from a htc evo v/evo 3d user his kitkat rom will not work with the og ev which is what I would assume you are one.
