Hello, I'm on hboot 1.23 but s-on, I just want to know because somebody mentioned it before, an I actually stuck here? Literally forever? Because hboot 1.23 cannot flash other firmware files or any advanced fastboot commands.

I wrote a load of stuff then re-read the OP.

Ahh S-ON, eek.

As Revolutionary won't work, can you use the HTC method to get S-OFF ?

If you can then do the PG58IMG.zip files work from: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1459767

I flashed 1.27.1100 over 1.23.0000, then again I was S-OFF.

But unlocking the bootloader via HTC might help

OK Sorry wrong terminology, I was referring to: http://htcdev.com/bootloader

I know many folks have used the HTC unlock method, I don't know what the limitations with it are as I used Revolutionary. My thoughts were can you use the HTC Unlock process then flash the F/W using PB58IMG.zip back to 1.17 the use revolutionary to get full S-OFF. I don't know if that's possible but ......

I know they keep a record that you've used it on your phone.

no, that doesn't give you s-off, it just unlocks your bootloader, but thanks for trying!

It will not, it still leaves you s off, meaning you can't flash radios, firmwares, etc.

Either that or a new release RUU with hboot higher than 1.23, such as an official ICS RUU that will hopefully be released in March. The test RUUs that are currently available don't work - see here:
