Patched (hard)hboot 1.04 for s-off/eng/fastboot
Posting this to get it out in the community for anyone who wants it. This is the shipping hboot 1.04 patched to give s-off identical to the current ENG hboot everyone is using as well as including the ENG commands and fastboot flash/erase support. Obviously if you have a perfectly running device there might be no reason to flash this. For those who are yet to flash a hboot you might choose this instead since it's newer and we don't know what flaws could have been fixed from the older ENG release.
This will likely accompany our official root release for the device when we finish it.
I have tested this to be working on my phone, as well as another developers device so it should be safe. You however take full responsibility for anything that goes wrong with this flash as with any aftermarket mod.
For those not aware, the thunderbolt is not a true s-off device. The ENG hboot or this patched hboot give you fake s-off while the radio is screaming s-on... This doesn't mean much, but DO NOT flash a hboot that isn't patched or you'll be stuck.
UPDATE 8/1/2011: This has been updated to now block normal hboot flashing to make it much safer. It's still wise to not arbitrarily flash things but you should rest a little more at ease now.
Thread update (not a new version):
Here is the commands to re-flash hboot after installing this:
"fastboot oem mw 8d08ac54 1 31302E30"
"fastboot flash hboot whateverhbootfile.nb0"
where whateverhbootfile.nb0 is in your path, you can get this file by unzipping the PG05IMG.zip with a hboot in it
(BE CAREFUL WITH THIS, YOUR PHONE WILL FLASH TETRIS.EXE AS A BOOTLOADER IF YOU ASK IT TO)
