As far as I know the term is the only difference. Insecure and unsecure are synonymous (as far as I know). We do know from Beanups that the hboot version is not a factor when S-OFF'ing using Rumrunner.
In most cases the reason most Rumrunner S-Off processes fail are due to one of the following:
User error in following the very specific Rumrunner directions.
HTC drivers installed and working – fastboot AND adb drivers
HTC sync removed (not closed – REMOVED)
All other phone software removed or disabled (Samsung Kies, PDANet, etc.)
VM’s are unsupported.
ALL firewalls and internet security applications should be totally disabled. If you get stuck with rows and rows of dots during the connection test process, it’s network filtering or other network issue!
A working internet connection
USB debugging enabled on your device
Fast boot disabled on your device (settings -> battery -> UNcheck “fast boot”)
Your device must be HTCDEV unlocked or rooted unless using rumrunner with a device blocked by htcdev (e.g. m7wlv)
Once you confirm you meet the above pre-requisites, it’s time to get started.
Read all of the directions on this page before proceeding to the downloads page.
Ensure device is booted to android
with usb debugging enabled
USB 2.0 ports are preferred.
USB 3.0 ports are known to cause connectivity problems
You should not be connected using any hubs
which may cause connectivity issues
Use the original HTC USB cable
or a cable that you know to work with adb and fastboot
on this device
Ensure that lock screen security is disabled on your device.
no passcode lock
no pattern lock
no face lock
Be sure to disable any Firewall or Anti-Virus applicatoins for the during of the Rumrunner process.
