Thumbs up [AlphaRevX] Public Beta 2 for Desire S

Hi guys,

The day has arrived:

AlphaRevX now includes support for the Desire S (HBOOT 0.98).

Hop on over to http://alpharev.nl/x/beta/

We'll use this as a support thread.

This version will also download and flash custom recovery if you want to, after getting S-OFF.

Note: the very first download missed some DLLs for the windows version, that should be included now.

Note2: There have been some reports (on dinc2) that the windows version might not always work like it should. Please report errors with that as descriptive as possible. The linux version should always work like it should.

Revolutionary 0.4pre4: bravo, bravoc, buzz, liberty, vivo, vivow, saga, mecha, supersonic, view, flyer, pyramid, shooter(_u) and doubleshot supported.

If you feel like supporting our device fund (which enables us to do more S-OFF hacks!) - then please do so here: Paypal donation

Default FAILED

Hi there,

I've just tried to S-OFF my european Desire S several times, following the instructions posted for the Incredible S. Alpharevx connects to my phone, reboots to fastboot, waits, reboots to fastboot (again), waits .. then says FAILED.

I wonder if I'm doing something wrong or there's a problem with the windows version as you reported.

Thanks for the effort any way


EDIT: Downloaded the Linux version and it worked. I am now S-OFF

Hi, AlphaRevX didn't work for me on Windows either, but it succeeded on Linux (Ubuntu 11.04). Anyway, thanks a lot for your effort, AlphaRev team

@badeaioan:

Well basically these are the steps that worked for me:

1. Download the Android SDK from here: http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
2. Unzip and go into the folder you just downloaded
3. Run the 'android' application within the 'Tools' folder
4. Select 'Available Packages', and select 'Android SDK Platform-tools' and 'Android Compatibility package', and install these.
5. Make sure ADB can see your device by cd-ing into the SDK folder, and then the 'platform-tools' folder, and running './adb devices'. Your device should show up (mine had a string of question marks, but it should work as long as it is there)
6. Download AlphaRevX and get your beta key
7. Run AlphaRevX as root, and follow the instructions, and you should have S-OFF

Hope this helps

Thank you for your response.

The problem starts on running AlphaRevX.

When I open gksu and try to open it, nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong ?

@badeaioan:

I just used Terminal, cd-ed into the directory, and ran 'sudo ./alpharevx', and it worked for me...

EDIT: I think I now know what you mean... it's only a command-line app, so it would only run from terminal...
