Hi all, been a while!

I'm trying to s-off so i can install a 4.4 ROM (google play edition), however having some difficulties. Firstly i tried rumrunner but i'll need to create a liveCD on 32bit ubuntu to run it (doesn't work on 64bit and i can't find what 32bit libs are needed to run it)

So i found revone, however i'm received this error:

Quote:

revone v0.2.1

revone failed (error code = 1)

After a little trawling i found this info that may be of use:

Quote:

mainver: 1.29.206.11

Not sure what else to try so any help/suggestions welcome

You must not do anything you do not wish. Feel free to whatever you like.

hmm

You wanted help and suggestions, and if i understood correctly, your question, was about getting revone to work, or did i misunderstand... you can get it to work in many many many ways, but if you want a method known to work, nice easy and simple, then just use that ROM (on hboot 1.44 with firmware 1.xx dated pre June 2013), to get it to work.

Then you'll have S-Off, and are free to flash anything you like.

What i meant was why was the suggestion to flash a ROM rather than every other method out there just doing the specific task. I mean if there is no better solution given then i'll do this but it seems a bit silly

Well first of all, i don't know if you really need S-Off at this point, but that is a decision only you can make.


On the other hand whether my reply is silly or not, you asked a specific question: [ERROR] - HBOOT 1.44 - s-off using revone
so i suggested if
1- hboot 1.44 dated before June 2013
2- firmware 1.xx (from "fastboot getvar all")
to use the ROM i mentioned, because it's worked for over 30 people by now.


But you can always:
1- continue to try revone until it works or not
2- try http://rumrunner.us/ which also has a Windows version, since you can't seem to make linux to work
3- try http://firewater-soff.com/

Ok, well i installed this ROM, the ROM works but when i boot into recovery it says 'S-ON'. Are there any other steps to turning it off? i just flashed the ROM from TWRP.

I want to install stock/vanilla 4.4, having looked around i'll probably try something like 'bigxie_m7_GPe_KRT16S_odexed-signed', its very difficult to find anything on these forums with so many ROMs being posted!

Thanks for the replies, i do appreciate it i'm just rather confused from what i've read. My end goal as mentioned is to install stock GPE the latest thats available

The ROM doesn't do the S-Off by itself, you have to do it

So if you now have that ROM i mentioned, just follow the revone instructions: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2314582
