I going to assume it is, but I have to ask if it's the token you got from unlocking the first time? I've seen it posted that getting a new token from HTCdev does not work.

Yes it is the original token. 3 times so far hasn't done the trick. I read elsewhere that to just keep doing it until it finally sticks.

Yes it's the one from the very first time you would have unlocked the bootloader. After the OTA HTC has patched the exploit so you wouldn't even get to the step where you would get an Unlock_code.bin. I believe they patched the SuperCID hack.

Yea I've heard this as well, just keep trying. Best of luck to you. Try this, power off the device fully then boot strait into the bootloader and then flash it.

After re-reading the procedures over & over, should I have unlocked the bootloader before OR after the OTA? The reason I ask is because I sent the OTA before trying to unlock the bootloader.

First you would have Locked it
Then ran the RUU
Then Unlocked it with your token
Then take the OTA
Then flash a recovery

But I also said that if the OTA locked it back up to run the token again and it should have did the trick(this part im not 100% certain because mine didnt re-lock after I took the OTA (it stayed unlocked)

what do you get in the Command prompt when you run the token? and are you in fastboot when you do it or are you in bootloader when you do it?

As you can see, I didn't try to re-unlock until after getting the OTA. I'm not sure if it matters when you do it, but you have to do it in order to get root access and flash a custom recovery.

Command prompt says it completed successfully. I'm in fastboot usb mode. I suppose I could try the RUU again & unlock the bootloader BEFORE the OTA...or is it too late to run the RUU again?

**EDIT***
Nevermind. It FINALLY unlocked. I think that was the 5th time. Again, I do thank you for all of your support on this. I must say this guide is probably the most straight-forward one here.

This I've never tried so I can't help you out with it.

It's all good. I finally got it to unlock after 5 attempts. Thank you, though.
