Default [Q] How to S-off HBOOT 1.48.0005

Hi Guys,

I have a HTC Evo 3D GSM with HBOOT 1.48.0005
I did a lot of searching but I didn't find anything useful for my HBOOT version.
Revolutionary (revolutionari dot io) solution works for 1.49.0007
Higher HBOOT needs to be downgraded to 1.49.0007, but what about lower versions? I didn't want to risk do anything stupid so I didn't try that. I looked at the HBOOT downgrade solutions so maybe I can use it to upgrade, but those solutions need an unlocked bootloader. I tried unlocking my bootloader with HTCdev, but when I flash my unlock code the bootloader unlock confirmation page doesn't pop up on my phone. (Maybe because of the old HBOOT/software, I found other ppl with 1.48.0005 who had the same problem.) The last solution could be updating the phone in the 'legal' way, but I'm afraid it would make S-off impossible/extra hard. So anyone has any experience with 1.48.0005 HBOOT? Please help me! Thanks!

Don't see a problem upgrading if revolutionary can s-off 1.49.0007, also can always downgrade hboot.

Default Problem solved!

I just upgraded to an official(?) 1.49.0007
Before the upgrade I changed my CID to HTC__001 (I thought it's not possible with locked bootloader but it worked, my CID was HTC11111 before)
I used this zip file: downloadandroidrom dot com/file/HTCEvo3D/hbootdowngrade/ there is a file inside, just renamed that to and put it in the root of my SD. It upgraded me to 1.49.0007 and after i just simply used Revolutionary to go S-off.

I hope this helps if someone finds an EVO 3D under a rock which still has HBOOT 1.48.0005 and wants to go S-off.

And thanks for the answer, I'm not sure if you suggested something like this, or to go to the newest HBOOT and downgrade from there, but I was trying to keep things simple.
