[TOOL][SCRIPT][05 Sep 2012]S-off for HBOOT 1.16 and above[v3.4.1]
Detailed in this post is a way to downgrade your Incredible S Hboot version 1.16 and above to version 1.13 so it can be s-offed using revolutionary. This is made possible with the TacoRoot exploit, an unsecured kernel, misc_version_universal and an automated goldcard algorithm.
Please note that phones with the latest ICS hboot (2.02 currently) will have to be bootloader UNLOCKED from htcdev.com. If your hboot 2.02 phone does not have an unlocked bootloader, do NOT run this script.
(Insert usual disclaimer: not responsible for your bricked phone blah blah etc).
Beware also that you will lose everything on the phone so back it all up if necessary.
Always make sure the script has completed without error before continuing with the RUU downgrade.
MicroSD card (2GB,4GB or 8GB recommended).
HTC Sync (Installed then uninstalled for ADB drivers).

RUU used for downgrade, model number PG3213000(Typical IncS)
Alternate RUU for Canadian Bell or South American IncS users, model number PG3212000
Extract all the files from the downgrade toolkit to your PC and run runme.cmd, following the instructions on screen. The only inputs you should be required to make are:
1. Answering y or n at the prompts
2. Rebooting your phone out of recovery (also when/if prompted)
You may receive this error during the script operation "rm failed for /data/data/recovery/log, No such file or directory" This error can be disregarded.
Then run the RUU Downgrade (takes a while, around 10 mins so be patient).
When its finished running, you can verify if you have 1.13.0000 hboot by entering hboot (power on phone + vol down).
Then you can run revolutionary
to get your s-off!
