Default Help with S-off, relock boot loader, and 3.18 ruu

Hello,

First thanks to any for all help I'm sure I'll receive. Im pretty sure of what I need to do but I'm a resident physician and can't afford to not have a phone by making a stupid mistake.

So I currently have supercid, am unlocked and rooted with boot loader 1.14. To update basically any roms or my current AOKP ROM I need 2.14. To get 2.14 I need to S-off, relock boot loader and run the 3.18 ruu, and reflash recovery.

Is this correct? The only other I'm confused of is relocking the bootloader, and them unlocking it again.

Thanks for any help.

You only need s-off to run the 3.18 RUU, locking the bootloader isn't necessary and only creates more work afterwards. So all you need to do is go here and get s-off, then you can download the RUU from here and run it. Your unlocked bootloader and s-off status will survive the RUU process but you will need to install TWRP recovery again afterwards.

Will /SD survive the process as well? I have TWRP 2.6.00 on /SD at the root level and have been able to access it from the bootloader.

Thanks again, Timmaaa!

Your sd card shouldn't be wiped during the RUU process but you might want to make a backup just in case.

I've tried and have only been able to obtain unlocked boot loader and root no super cid or s-off ... I'm not sure what I'm missing ...
