We got s off because some developers from a completely different device put in a crapload of time and effort in order to figure out the exploit and then test it on our devices.

The flock of new developers may be wishful thinking honestly. But I'm thankful to the guys who figured this exploit out. Genius

This is my main reason. My Rezound loves the radios and Incredikernel. So I did a mixture of the 3, s-0ff, ics firmware, & Ineffabilis. Also just re-packed a GB rom that included kernel boot.img flashing and it worked BEAUTIFULLY. No PH98IMG flashing done at all.

Also, can always go back to Rezrom Ex 3.4 via nandroid without issue.

Does anyone know if we will be able to get the mount points changed for sdcard and sdcard2? I know recovery reads the actual sdcard, but for apps backing up data, it all goes to the internal "sdcard". More than once have I gotten in a rush and forgot to backup my internal sdcard. just hoping we can get that changed around.

This process is DEAD SIMPLE ... Just time consuming if you can't get the "wire Trick" timing down.

All devices are different. All I can suggest is READ ... READ ... READ

Since you don't really even know what you want to do ... S-Off can wait. Then maybe a different s-off process may be available when you DO need it. I doubt it will be "easier" though.

Alright I may give it a try but I hope someone comes up with a YouTube tutorial of the whole process ...I dont want to insult devs saying its to hard because I know how hard they worked and I appreciate it ..I'm just confused lol

Everything will be included in recovery.

And to me the big deal is that you can flash the latest ice cream sandwich radio firmware by flashing the RUU, and whenever you want you can how back to the gingerbread radio firmware and gingerbread roms. As opposed go how its always been where once you upgraded there was no going back for radio firmware.

Also people will tell you that's the reason that we don't have a lot more developers on our device is because of s off. I personally think that's wishful thinking, and the user base is a reason a lot of devs walked away, but I'm passing along the information since its posted constantly that once s off is achieved there will be a line of devs a half mile long begging to get to the rezound.

Wow it's been a long time since I was last s-off...until now! But surely they haven't managed being able to flash a rom and a new hboot along with a radio all in recovery?
