I'm still on GB. Having no luck with this wire trick. Has anyone tried the download for ICS leak while on GB? Dunno what I can do differently to get this to work. ADB, fastboot working, no HTC Sync.... re-formatting sdcard between each try....

Finally got it to work!!!!

Man the "wire trick" is really "tricky!"

Question though, If I flashed the "modified" HBOOT can I go back to the ICS stock HBOOT without loosing S-Off?

I used a rather long wire tie... you also have to be very accurate at getting pin 1 holding it and doing the 2 GRND shorts pretty much consecutively....

Also make sure you have a solid USB cable connection... I thought I had ruined my Micro-USB port on the phone but it turned out I just had a crappy cable...
