I achieved S-OFF a couple days ago with a small paperclip and some clear scotch tape. It worked after a few tries after placing the controlbear files into my SDK folder with fastboot. During the end of the rebooting process it booted into into Amon Ra where I had to manually reboot the system twice before it finally booted up into CleanROM ICS, where controlbear told me that S-OFF was already established. Although I achieved S-OFF I was never prompted to install their hboot. If anyone else is having or has had this issue, flashing the jb_hboot.zip in fastboot using the instructions in the OP will successfully install their hboot. If you are on GB firmware their hboot is not recommended.... Just wanted to throw that out there in case anyone comes across the same issue or issues I had, as I couldn't find any of the exact issues as I was having when I achieved S-OFF.

SD Card?
OK, so I'm S-OFF - everything is dandy. Except one thing. The phone is not reading the SD card. When I went through the process, I used a spare so as not to damage the SD card I use on a daily basis. After the process was completed, I switched SD cards and now have the one I use in the phone...but it's not picking it up. I re-flashed the ROM I was using from scratch, including the GB Firmware patch. Still no dice. Is there a fix for this I'm not seeing?

Edit - I even went so far as to copy some files to the sd card I used to S-OFF and it's not reading that either. So basically, it's not reading any external storage - period.

I got the Juopunut screen and no further. Can't do anything from here. How do I load the ph98img back on? No recovery, no factory reset, just the Juopunut screen or bootloader screen. Still unlocked and S-on

That's good to know. I didnt accept the modified HBoot during the S-OFF process and afterwards I was locked. So I just re-flashed the unlock_code.bin to unlock it. But, of course, it did a factory reset so I had to restore a Ti backup. What a pain. I wish I had just flashed the modified HBoot.

I never lost any data from int SD or ext SD card either. If you look carefully as its running, it makes a backup of your SD card and then restores it later on.

If anyone has tried multiple times, and still can't get it, the problem could be that you're on a highly modded ROM, like RezRom. I was running that, and couldn't get it even after 100 tries. After I relocked, ran an RUU, and installed the stock rooted ROM, I got it on the first try.
