I'll get my hardware ID once I get my device back
I guess so, since at least one guy tried it (I think) and it didn't work so well. Bummer that the MAINOS on the HTC 8S Rom is Bitlocker encrypted, the header looks messed up anyway. I think they used some kind of different encryption in addition to bitlocker, even if it's only spliting up the headers.
Or they may be using a different type or protocol or revision of bitlocker, I think you get the idea.
