Default impossible to S-OFF my HTC One?

I have an AT&T HTC One that I have successfully bootloader unlocked and rooted.

I cannot get it to S-OFF

I have hboot 1.44 so I have tried both revone and Moonshine.

I have tried with the stock ROM (don't know what version): ./revone -P would give me error ID 2 and Moonshine would try 10 times with a failure of Don't drink and Shine!

I have tried with Android Revolution based on 4.4: ./revone -P would give me error ID 1 and Moonshine was unable to pass the 2nd ADB test (phone would freeze after rebooting)

I have tried with stock roms based on 4.2 and even on 4.1: ./revone -P would give me error ID -6 and Moonshine would try 10 times with a failure of Don't drink and Shine! I read that -6 was a matter of persistence, but I tried a hundred time on two different roms and had no success.

I read something somewhere that past a certain firmware, the exploit that allowed both revone and Moonshine to function was already patched. Is it impossible to S-OFF my phone now? I'm not 100% sure where to check my software version, but I am on the 4.1.2 Stock-based rom now and under About -> Software Information the Software number shows as 1.26.502.15

Anyone help?

Of course I ran across rumrunner in my searches here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2488772

But according to this post, the hboot must be version 1.54 or 1.55. It specifically says I must use revone or Moonshine if I am running 1.44. So I haven't tried it yet but I guess it can't hurt ...

Check date of bootloader, if it's before June 2013 then use the following ROM to get S-Off, using revone:

Android_Revolution_HD-One_9.4.zip 970.8 MB
https://mega.co.nz/#!aZkF2IIC!UIL4ww...kwCPLMRDlNrrjM
MD5: 06c863ce41b0d5001290737a31e198a1


if the date of bootloader is June 2013 or later then it's a patched version, there's a downgrade method linked here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2431515

Thanks so much nkk. Looks like that is exactly my problem. My hboot shows July 5, 2013, so off to follow that guide and I'll let you know what happens.

I tried this but I kept getting error 155 when running the RUU program. I think that is because I had to relock my bootloader first and I didn't know that. Anyway, I got it working with hboot 1.44 now so I think that is better.

Well with persistence I finally got this to work.

There is another link farther down in your link which I think has easier to understand instructions:http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...8&postcount=55

However, the real key comes in step 3.

I got stuck on step 3 for a while because your link shows three different options for downloading. I assumed that all three were the same. Actually option A and C are the same (http://d-h.st/qEY). They seem to be a TWRP backup. I checked the md5 of my download and unzipped this file to the TWRP backup directory on my phone. But no matter what I tried it always failed to restore.

I finally figured out that option B is a different download (https://mega.co.nz/#!vwJGhYjb!A6D3Tj...N3hTfC6uSgJSZA) and it is actually a ClockworkMod backup even though it is labeled as TWRP. So I flashed ClockworkMod to my recovery and unzipped this download to the ClockworkMod backup directory on my phone. I was then able to successfully restore this backup and downgrade my phone to 1.26.502.10.

After that I just had to relock my bootloader, and use the RUU file to get to 1.26.502.12.

I then unlocked the bootloader again, flashed TWRP to my recovery again, and used that to root the 1.26.502.12 install.

I was then able to finally use revone successfully to S-OFF the phone, remove the tampered tag from the bootloader, and set my SUPERCID.

Finally, I installed Android Revolution 41 mod running Android 4.4 and everything is working great!

Thanks!
