The reason I went through this was when RUUing. When you RUU, you have to lock your bootloader. Once the RUU happens, you are locked and you're stuck with stock recovery/no root. Still S-Off, but locked.
Any suggestions as to how to unlock otherwise?
Also, I did not know that about the token. That's interesting. Going to give it a try later today. (I'm hard-headed)
never said fastboot oem unlock
would work. on all het devices(with exception of GPE one and nexus one) youll need to submit an identifier token(wich contains all personal info,uncluding your htcdev registered name) and get an unlock_code.bin.
sure,if you have an locked botloader and a non booting phone,you could change cid and unlock. however:
-you do not need to relock to run an ruu while s off. go ahead and give that a shot too while your confirming
if you like an unlocked bootloader no need to ever lock it.
-if youre s off,you dont actually need to unlock. you can install any image to any partition you want by packing a properly named image with a correct android info document and flashing it via fastboot and RUU mode on the phone:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
(will boot phone to ruu mode- black screen with silver htc)
fastboot flash zip zipname.zip
(full ruus may need run twice as hboot and radio are sometimes updated before the rest can continue)
(takes you back to normal fastboot)
on the token,change of any parameter(cid,mid,esn,etc) will prevent the unlock_code.bin from working.
