Default [UTILITY] Simon's HTC Utility v4

I present, the simonsimons34 Wildfire S tool.




Unlock without voiding your warranty

Note requires hboot to first say locked

The biggest thing this tool can do is UNLOCK your hboot WITHOUT ever needing to wipe your data, go to HTCdev.com or voiding your warranty. Unlike S-off we can reverse this too. Simpily let us Unlock your phone for you, and flash roms and recoveries as you wish. Just like S-Off. This will also help you get S-Off with the utility from the general section. The only thing you NEED is a proper Unlockable bootloader, and the recovery that came with the phone. If you need this tool, you already have stock recovery. So nothing besides a HTC unlockable bootloader is required. Everything else is in the package.


Universal to HTC Devices

Dont let the name fool you, though. This will work on ANY HTC unlockable phone. The other tools besides unlocking will only work for the Wildfire S CDMA, as of know however.


Sorry, It is a beta.

Being as this is still in beta, there will most likely be bugs. Things that dont work. Please report them here with a screenshot and or the exact copy of what it said. For now this is a self extracting exe, so place in a folder of your choice, thats empty preferably, and open it up. The bat file will automatically be opened. There is a good side to betas though. Improvement! Soon after we confirm it works, I will be moving to a GUI app to make everything even easier.

and anyone i forgot, just pm me and Ill try to add you

Note: may be picked up by some AV programs, because they arn't signed. All it is is a self extracting bin with auto open of the batch file.

Already unlocked, but hopefully this will come in handy if I get another HTC. I'll let you how it works. This is just what I needed thanks.


P.S. great idea

Little Question: How to get the Stock Recovery without downloading a RUU?
Filefactory all Slots full for about a hour...

Can someone extract the Stock Recovery.img or give me some adwise?

Simon, you might want to add prerequirements like having the android-sdk, fastboot, etc...

Also, inform users what state the phone should be in. (Recovery, in ROM+USB Debug, Fastboot, etc...)

Just an idea.

Have confirmation from two different people that this works. Both people were unlocked previously (before this util was invented, and recommended by me to use) through HTCDev.

User 1: used this tool to successfully install ClockWork Mod.

User 2: used this tool to S-OFF MetroPCS hboot 1.10.0000 and install CWM.

Major thanks for this Simon. Glad to have helped and been a part of this amazing utility!
