Here is a place to discuss the current methods of S-Off.

We have Sonic2765's java card which will always work, and a promised method from beaups.

Sonic's Java Card will work on any device.
Sonic's thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2427960

Beaups method will work on any device even with the minor OTA that was released.

So, it seems safe to take the OTA, but I am not responsible if this is incorrect.

This is amazing! Was waiting for this since I didn't have another phone to use so I could send mine to Sonic. Also glad that beaups said that it WILL work with the latest OTA! Just glad for an exploit since my original One had to be exchanged...

Any idea if he hopes to release sometime soon? Or after 4.3 is released?

More than likely after 4.3 would be my guess. We wouldn't want verizon to include a fix for the exploit with 4.3 causing a delay in the release. I don't know for sure, just my guess.

Yea, I think waiting would be a good idea.. AT&T certified their 4.3 recently and it's rolling out now.. hopefully VZW is not far behind. I need FREEDOM!!

Shame... VZ is supposed to release it at the very end of October. Personally, I would rather have it released now

I mean, if he just released it and we had a thread warning everyone wouldn't that be fine?

I agree, most of us will be running custom roms anyway, so there would be no reason really to ota, and also no reason why someone won't just make a safe flashable zip for us after ota is released... The only way the soff method would suck is if they patched it and people with replacement after the update, or just new phone owners wouldn't be able to do it, which is kinda a big deal...
