While this process shouldn’t be too risky, bricks can happen. None of us will be accountable. If you are worried, don’t do it.

This is a pretty simple method, however, you will need to have a working adb and fastboot environment. This method will work on any operating system that supports adb and fastboot. You should understand how to use a terminal window in your O/S. If you don’t understand adb and fastboot, you probably don’t need S-off.

Lastly, the work herein should not be stolen, repackaged, one clicked, bat’d, etc. soffbin3 is not GPL and may not be reused, integrated into other work, reposted, or redistributed without our permission.

For this to work, you must be rooted and have superCID (unlock/custom recovery is optional), see the threads below for help and information regarding obtaining superCID, unlock, root, etc. Note these threads are provided for convenience only. Please look for support for them in each respective thread if you need it, do NOT clutter this thread with support requests regarding obtaining superCID and/or root! If you try this process without superCID, it will not work, and you may have issues!:

HTC One S superCID: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1671643

Once you have confirmed you have SuperCID, get started (read it through first so you understand it all):

Special note for One S users - flashing the OTA firmware (which you are initiating, but not actually doing here) likes to BRICK superCID phones for some reason. Follow these instructions EXACTLY. After the error 92 in step 5, whatever you do, do NOT run the fastboot flash command again. Make sure you procede on to step 6.

Let's get started:

1.) Download patcher and unzip it in your working directory:
soffbin3.zip http://d-h.st/WrZ Mirror http://goo.im/devs/dsb9938/soff/soffbin3.zip

2.) Download zip that matches your model id and move it in your working directory (do not unzip it!):

OneS PJ4010000-OneS.zip http://d-h.st/sE6 Mirror http://goo.im/devs/dsb9938/soff/PJ4010000-OneS.zip

3.)
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
(wait for bootloader)

4.)
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
(wait for black HTC Screen)

5.)
Code:
fastboot flash zip <appropriate zip filename from above>
After a while, You should see the following error “FAILED (remote: 92 supercid! please flush image again immediately)”



6.) Immediately issue the following command:

Code:
fastboot oem boot
You may see some errors, just wait for the device to boot into Android (only now, you should be booted into Android with no eMMC write protection of any kind active).

7.) Issue the following 3 commands to update the security partition with S-off flags (one command at a time!):

Code:
adb push soffbin3 /data/local/tmp/
adb shell chmod 744 /data/local/tmp/soffbin3
adb shell su -c "/data/local/tmp/soffbin3"
(wait for a few seconds)

8.)
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
9.) You should see what you are looking for!

Enjoy.
