Default [Android][HTC S-OFF] SunShine for modern HTC devices


Update:
SunShine now supports the Verizon HTC m8 4.4.3 build for unlock and s-off

Indian HTC One m8 users on 4.4.3, your support is still hit or miss, try it. We are still working on it.


Supported Models for s-off and bootloader unlock:
HTC One Mini m4
HTC One m7
HTC One m8
HTC One e8
HTC J Butteryfly
HTC One Remix
HTC One X (Evita)
Many many other HTC devices (Try it,if SuneShine asks for money, it will work!)


If you reach the screen asking you to pay, it is compatible.


Update 2.0

SunShine has been updated for the m7 and other HTC devices. Want a list I supported models? Try it, if it takes you to the payment screen it will work!


Update 1.6

SunShine has been updated and no longer needs your device to be rooted or unlocked before running. SunShine will gain root itself, and unlock/s-off every variant of the m8 currently. Cheers!


SunShine is a commercial application that will unlock and s-off the bootloader on modern HTC devices (ie HTC M8).

HTC M7 is not supported at this time, likely in the future.

Price:
$25 per device

Full description and purchase:

How to use with TowelRoot:
If you are having difficulties with TowelRoot, or SunShine saying you are not rooted, you need to use a specific version of TowelRoot. The version on his main page does not currently work with HTC.

First go to http://towelroot.com, and then from that page go to https://towelroot.com/tr3.apk (hot link blocking, cant go straight to the apk).

Then install TowelRoot, and click "Welcome" three times. This will open the hidden "modstrings" option. Change the modstrings to "1337 0 1 0 4 1" and click "Make it Ra1n". Then run SunShine. After SunShine reboots your phone, you will have to repeat the process before running SunShine the second time.

I'm taking a break of an undetermined length. Please don't contact me about exploits

Hi all, if anyone gets SunShine to work on a custom ROM can they report which custom ROM/ROM's it works on?

I'm on ViperOne 1.7.1 and no go on it, I'm happy to switch ROM's to get S-Off but unsure if any custom ROM's work with it, cheers.

I'm on stock rooted but every time I run test I keep getting "Please update Sunshine". Plus is there any other method of purchasing besides paypal? I have no access to paypal. Sprint M8 Harman Kardon edition. TWRP recovery, do I need to flash stock recovery as well?
