Ugh, crap. I gave the wrong link the second time. Don't use that 2.15 firmware update I linked to, it won't work for you. Give me a minute and I'll post an update.

Here's a quick guide.

You must have adb/fastboot installed on your PC.

You must have HTC drivers installed on your PC.

You need to download the xpwn.tar.gz file and extract it into your fastboot folder.

You need to open a command prompt from within your fastboot folder. To do this navigate to the location where adb.exe and fastboot.exe are located, shift + right click, then select open command prompt here.

Command #1
Code:
adb push oneXchopper /data/local/tmp/xpwn
Command #2
Code:
adb push busybox /data/local/tmp/busybox
Command #3
Code:
adb push ownage /data/local/tmp/phase1.sh
Command #4
Code:
adb shell chmod 755 /data/local/tmp/xpwn /data/local/tmp/busybox
Command #5
Code:
adb shell ln -s /data/local/tmp/busybox /data/local/tmp/sed
Command #6
Code:
adb shell "/data/local/tmp/xpwn"
Command #7
Code:
adb reboot bootloader

Adb is an acronym for Android Debug Bridge. It allows the user to issue numerous commands via a command prompt to communicate with the device through a usb connection. Use Google to search for "minimal adb & fastboot", the first result will be an XDA thread which details the easiest way to usual it.

Have you extracted the attachment into the adb/fastboot folder on your PC?

The error code means the file isn't in the same directory as adb and fastboot.
