I have just inherited my gf's HTC Sensation XE i'm on another network and so i need to unlock it. whilst i'm at it i may aswell update to kit kat as it appears that i need to root the phone anyway.
So i need to follow this guide to unlock the phone: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1232107
which as i said need to root the thing.
next I suffer from the HTCDEV bootloader problem as this is a 2nd motherboard, the original being sent back to HTC after 6months or so of the contract it was on and so the HTCDEV doesn't work.
That lead me to this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1661631
following those instructions I get as far as using controlbear and it just fails to root or unlock the bootloader.
That then lead me to this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...668276&page=63
I got the controlbear files from the last page of one of the guides here is the link to the file:https://www.dropbox.com/s/8toj5hbrgi...id_ICS_WIN.zip in case that has something to do with it.
The HTC Sensation/XE/4G Super Utility (AIO) by kgs1992 v8.0 got the furthest. the program runs and you get to controlbear and controlbear runs all the way up to loading juopunutbear where it just stays in bootloader and never restarts. the timer times out and it quits out of controlbear and offers u a retry. retrying any number of times seems to make no difference what-so-ever. Temp root works fine but obv i cannot do anything in that mode, what is going on? The phone is originally Orange it's on Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3, software number 3.33.401.153, hboot 1.29.0000.
Hoping someone can point me in the right direction or to the correct files.
Thanks very much
