I know there is some activity on the One X forums for getting S-OFF but has anyone heard of S-OFF progress for One S?

Damn. Well I wonder when this will happen. Suspect not for a while considering that HTC hasn't even released One S kernel yet.

People have been attempting to contact HTC and letting them know that they are in breach of the open GPL compliance act by not releasing the kernel source, which would allow s-off (I think, that's what I get from it..)
See this thread for more info http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1629933

They're pretty much saying it will be out in 90-120 days. Don't get why it takes so long when the one x and one v both got it already, but I'm assuming they have some kind of reasoning for it.

I'm not sure that Kernel Source will do anything for S-Off as the kernel is not part of the HBoot. Unless Kernel Source also includes a new S-Off HBoot, which I doubt it. To obtain S-Off an exploit (like with the Sensation) will need to be found or an HTC signed HBoot that provides S-Off.

Kernel Source will allow custom kernels with speed tweeks, OC/UV, OTG, etc. etc.

What I meant was I hoped HTC released S-OFF HBoot after the kernel sources were released. I doubt they would release a signed HBoot before the kernel.

For those who are interested on getting S-OFF there is a current petition that is requesting this for all HTC devices.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...RZWmc6MQ#gid=0

Give your name to the document if your interested.

Signed, I've no idea why they can make the bootloader unlocked but not give S Off, what other harm would it do, we already invalidate the warranty.

Exactly. That's why its being requested. All they would have to do would release a signed HBoot with S-OFF for each device. Or provide a universal tool. Either way would work for me.
