My DNA was previously S-off and unlocked before the latest kitkat OTA, when the new OTA came out I fastboot flashed the latest HBOOT and Radio before I started using a custom sense 6 rom. It seems that with the HBOOT update, my bootloader became locked and the tempered sign is gone as well, I tried using firewater, but since my phone is S-Off the application just say there's not anything it can do and closes. What can I do to unlock my bootloader? Or do I have to return everything to S-On and run firewater?

Just downgrade the hboot and install again 3.06.605.4 and later unlock your bootloader and keep it s-off!! and later if you want update again to kitkat but use the first ota zip and second one too!!

I would flash the 3.06 hboot first before this, but it probably won't make a difference.


to UNLOCK your bootloader,enter the following:

adb devices

adb shell

su (if needed to get a # prompt)

echo -ne "HTCU" | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p3 bs=1 seek=33796
(i would very strongly recomend you copy/paste this)

(exit a second time if you need to to get back to a normal > prompt)

adb reboot bootloader

verify you are now unlocked
