I have done this with a previous INC2, however I get this error with a new phone I received 2 days ago:

r>fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
sending 'unlocktoken' (0 KB)... OKAY [ 0.165s]
writing 'unlocktoken'... FAILED (remote: unlock token check failed)
finished. total time: 0.169s

I have repeated the steps 3 times , generating an unlock file from HTC every time (double checking device , cut and paste erros , etc).

My goal is to root for superuser access not S-OFF the device

My versions of SW are:
FW version is 4.08.605.3
Hboot 0.98
And 2.3.4
radio 01.0722

1- Anyone has an idea of the HTCDev error solution?
2- If it is not possible to use HTCDev and I need to rS-OFF to get superuser privileges; what procedure should I follow based on my FW v4.08.605.3 and Hboot 0.98? (will taco root work with this Hboot?, links please)


thanks

Wau 72 views and nobody can help?

Ok, I know there are many posts about S-OFF with FW v 6.....xxxx, use TACOroot or with V6.yyyy use this one. Can someone tell me if a simple downgrade will work with my FW version v4.08.605.3 and Hboot 0.98?

thank you

The phone came with these
FW version is 4.08.605.3
Hboot 0.98
And 2.3.4
radio 01.0722

HctDev is not working as I posted previously.

I only wanted superuser rights (don't care for ROMs). Since HctDev root does not work , I want S-OFF (which will give me SU anyway),

The question is what procedure to follow since I see different posts where the FW version is important to do the right thing. So what link is the correct for the Hboot and FW versions that I have.

thank you

There are several posts about using HTC Dev unlock. I think I could get my 10yr old niece to use use search n figure it out.
You need to get the unlock .bin file from your email that u use to submit all your info n out that .bin file in the same file as adb resides in.

I am sure your 10 year old nice can also read very well. The file is in the right place. Re-read the error message again if you really want to help.
