Default [Q] Prep for S-off gives segmentation fault

Trying to do S-off using Revone and I keep getting segmentation fault <core dumped> when I set revone - P.
The phone is hboot 1.44 and firmware 4.1.2 with software number 1.27.531.11. Its not rooted.

Do I have to root to get this to work or what could be causing the fault? I ran it 6 or so times. Maybe I should try going to 1.27.531.8?
Thanks.

If your hboot is dated after May, yes, try the older ROM. I think the temproot hack broke around that time.

I will see if I can find the older ROM. Would the temproot issue also be addressed by rooting first? I was trying to avoid that.
Or is better to upgrade to 1.54 and use rumrunner?

1- you have a patched hboot, you can downgrade and use revone, using this: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/96098-s-o...11-to-1275318/

2- or you can use rumrunner, it also works on 1.44 as far as i know/seen

Sounds good. I will probably try the downgrade. Or is there a good reason to just root and go to rumrunner?

i guess it's two sides of the same coin.

the downgrade method (then revone) has been working fine from what i've seen on the forum.

Now that rumrunner exists I wonder if its best to just let HTC/Tmobile update the phone to 4.3 and then use rumrunner to S-off?
Probably not.
