It is better than using a Windows 8 computer with only usb 3.0 ports. Until this thread I was stuck stock. I wasn't unhappy stock but I'm happier with s-off and a custom Rom. This thread could include a warning. Do at own risk. Brick is possible. But otherwise it was safe and worked like a charm.

Usb 3 ports work fine with adb and Windows 8. When someone comes in here and asks why they can't do anything with their phone for ~2 weeks because it's stuck in a weird state, point them to this post.

Like I said, we specifically mention NOT to do it this way for a reason. We don't just write these instructions because it's fun....

Greetings,
If @beaups or @jcase advise against using a certain method you should heed their warning.
They have both been finding s-off exploits for all of us for many years, and they know what they are talking about.
The instructions were removed as a precaution.
Thread closed.

Thank You,
BD619
