I converted my phone to a Developer Edition phone a while back, and in the process went S-OFF. I would like to S-ON, as I have read this removes the 'test device' status that apparently sends HTC information. I also read that going S-ON with a custom HBOOT is a very bad thing, but how do I tell if my HBOOT is custom? The top just reads M7_UL PVT SHIP S-OFF RH and the version is HBOOT 1.56.
From Rumrunner documentation
How to get rid of S-OFF warnings
There are two visual differences that will indicate that your device is S-OFF (other than checking in the bootloader):
1. Go to Settings > About. You should see "Tell HTC and error reporting" option right under "Software updates".
If you don't see that option, then you're already using a custom ROM and you can skip this step. But if you see the "Tell HTC and error reporting" option, select it and scroll down to read a warning message in red text. The "Tell HTC" option is permanently enabled and cannot be turned off without flashing a custom ROM. If you are not comfortable with HTC collecting information from your device, you can load your custom recovery, wipe data, cache, dalvik and install a custom ROM - the "Tell HTC and error reporting" option will be gone.
2. Boot up or restart your phone. In the boot splash screen, if you see a warning message in red text: "This build is for development purposes only..." you can remove it by flashing a custom hboot, now supplied by the developers of Rumrunner: http://rumrunner.us/hboots/. If your phone's firmware and carrier are not listed, the custom Hboots provided on the Rumrunner site will not work and you will likely brick your device. But you can look for other sources. Try this one: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2316726. Alternatively, you can request for a custom Rumrunner Hboot for your specific firmware and carrier. Instructions: Do fastboot getvar all and don't forget to remove your serialno and imei. Paste the info into an email. Upload your RUU or firmware.zip from OTA to dropbox and add link in email and don't forget to mention your carrier, if any. Send to: email@example.com. Then, check the Rumrunner Hboots page regularly for the update: http://rumrunner.us/hboots/.
