Default S-off HELP!!!! Been up all night!! Losing my mind.

Its been 7 hours, time to ask for help. My wife cracked her rezound so bought one on Ebay. Both of us have had rooted rezounds for about 2 years (both s-off), keep getting "can't find a seat", install device and drivers", and "critical error" messages while trying juopunut (however you spell it) s-off. Have installed: HTC sync, adb manager (SDK blah blah blah), and all the "all in one tools" I can find. Going crazy. Currently unlocked bootloader, AmonRa, and installed super Su. Phone is stock as hell and still on gingerbread (scared to update to ics through verizon ota update cause i dont trust verizon or their firmware. I am totally lost. Please help.

refer to my s-off guide here in the rezound q&a forums...the windows version.which im assuming your trying to use was ONLY meant for ICS and was removed because the windows version hard bricked one too many devices

Edit: as you are on gingerbread that too was produced by verizon and htc....same as pure stock ics....you can also get a non verizon sense based ics rom on here which runs much better than verizons gingerbread or ics

You think it would be easier to s-off with or without taking the OTA update?

You don't really have a choice here... You have Amon Ra (a custom recovery) so even if you take the OTA it won't install, OTA updates require a stock recovery.

The Windows S-OFF method will only work with ICS (there was no GB version), so you could install the 3.14.605.12 RUU first (this will give you a stable ICS version installed), but with the messages you are getting it sounds like you have a driver or USB issue, or perhaps Fastboot enabled (not the same as fastboot from the bootloader) or USB Debugging not turned on.

Be very cautious with the Windows ControlBear, @REV3NT3CH is correct, it was removed because it bricked a lot of phones, it was never stable... it works for most people, but there are circumstances that if put together correctly will brick you device permanently. You could try the Linux method, it is the only official way and there is a GB version on http://unlimited.io/juopunutbear.htm that will work with your device.

TBH, I'd not even bother. I'd look into seeing why ADB/Fastboot doesn't work right. First I'd uninstall HTC Sync (should have been called HTC Stync LOL).

What do you get when you cross a cow with a lion?
One really messed up situation!

Okay, well, here is where I get confused. When I s-off'd 2 years ago it was on gingerbread and I still have the old juopunutbear program so in theory everything should be the same. To my knowledge, I can't figure out a way to toggle debugging on GB. Oh, can anyone link me to (literally) from start to finish, every single download I will need to successfully s-off given the specs that I've provided that I'm working with? I would appreciate it more than you know because I must be doing something wrong. Thanks!!

Default If I may chime in...

Would it be okay if I were to dualboot a Linux image on my Windows PC to perform S-OFF? There wouldn't be any command errors or extra precautions, right?

USB Debugging in GB is under Settings, Applications, Development if I recall right.

OK, so it would have worked if I did the wire trick right but I failed. Now I'm stuck at juopunutbear arrow screen however, I can still get into fastboot. Now what?
