Default [Mod S-OFF required] Rezound Super CID!

This is probably common knowledge, but since the only place I found it in our forum was buried deep in a 1500+ reply thread I thought I'd make a new thread for it.

If you don't know, super CID is more or less like root for hboot/fastboot. Why do we care? It means we can install any ROM we want if the propaganda is to believed.

More importantly, it means we don't have to lock our bootloaders before we RUU if we don't want to.

Here are the simple steps to get super CID.

S-OFF is required.

1. fastboot oem readcid
2. write down your existing cid.
3. fastboot oem writecid 11111111
4. fastboot owm readcid
5. verify it has changed. It should list your old CID as your backup CID.

I tested this by flashing the 2.x RUU, unlocking the bootloader via HTCDev, and then flashing the RUU again immediately after I got unlocked.


--As is noted by other people. This isn't actually useful for us. But yay, now you know and don't have to spend 5 hours researching like I did.

Maybe some people like to see it say "Unlocked" on the top of their bootloader instead of "Locked".

The point of supercid was more or less for phones with oversea counterparts
Like the inspire HD and desire HD
Same phone for the most part just branded different, supercid would allow you to flash an inspire Rom to the desire

where did you get this information the cid is the carrier id,and simply tells the phone what factory RUUs its allowed to install. it has absolutely nothing to do with locking bootloaders. once you are s-offed,if you choose to unlock,you can run an ruu without relocking,period. its got nothing to do with superCID.

superCID is cool for phones like the sensation,desire HD,and other world phones becasue it lets us run other carriers branded,or unbranded software. ive been running asian/european ICS on my sensation for weeks now

while i did change the CID of my rezound for S&Gs,it is at this point,completely pointless,as all we have access to are vzw RUUs do not be mistaken that this lets you flash other phones roms. that would be an extremely bad idea

while i appreciate your bringing forth this information,id prolly advize that most folks do not do this. at this point there are no benefits,and its one more thing you will have to remember to return to stock if you ever need to send the phone in for warranty.


my 2 cents.

edit: yall beat me by minutes
