Hi lovely people,

I'd like to install CM13 on my HTC Desire S S510e. I have found way too many different instructions on how to proceed and I was wondering if there's a simple, step-by-step (I really mean step-by-step) guide on how to do it. By now, as far as I understand I should:
1. S-OFF my phone (although I heard it's possible to install a custom rom even with S-ON?). I've read that you can do it using HTCDev or Alpharev. However the HTC Desire S doesn't appear on the list of supported devices in the first link. Which device should I select from the list? On the other hand, the Alpharev website says that Alpharev is deprecated and one should use Revolutionary but the Revolutionary website is empty. Finally a more general question: what's the benefit of using HTCDev or Alpharev?
2. Flash sagaopt TWRP 2.8.7.1. I use ArchLinux. In Linux I'd have to install android-tools to have adb and fastboot, then do "adb reboot bootloader" followed by "fastboot flash recovery TWRP-recovery-sagaopt-2.8.7.1.img"? Or do I have to first install an older version of TWRP to convert my sdcard to EXT4 to then install the sagaopt 2.8.7.1 version?
3. Use TWRP to convert my sdcard to EXT4.
4. Install cm-13.0-XXXXXXXX-UNOFFICIAL-sagaopt.zip and gapps by putting the files into the sdcard using adb (what's the command to do this?) and then flash the files using TWRP.

What steps am I missing? What are the perils? What should I be particularly careful with?

Please help me understand and condense the heaps of information found in this forum.

Thanks,
Ricardo

CM13 is to heavy for the phone CM12.1 is stable but slow (sometimes you miss a call because the mobile is too slow) CM11 is fast but old (i used CM12.1 now im using CM11 nightly but the gallery doesnt play videos i deleded it)

Thank you for reposting that guide and for suggesting CM11 instead of CM12.1 or CM13. In that guide it says that unlocking the 2.02 s-on using the htcdev tool doesn't work for him if I understand correctly. Also I went to the htcdev website and they say that the tool will remove all personal data including applications, text messages and personalized settings. However I wanted to install a recovery and make a backup of the phone as it is now and that wouldn't work if everything gets removed before installing the recovery. Is there a way to install a recovery without removing anything?

I think you can try titanium backup with an oneclickroot (kingroot or framaroot) or unlock it with the risk of loosing data first backup contacts/sms and callhistoy with apps of the playstore and your sdcard isnt affected

Oh i could be that you need the win8+ fastboot fix for htcdev http://forum.xda-developers.com/htc-...s-8-1-t2858337

if its 2.00.0002/2.00.2000 you can s-off it if its 2.02.0002 its ****ty

I use linux. It's 2.00.0002 so I guess I should follow step 4, but step 4.4 asks me to execute a window's exe file which I can't execute. What should I do instead? Unlock it using htcdev as if it was 2.02 s-on or will that mess my phone up?

sorry for that step you need windows there is no other way

you can only unlock but the best way is to use a windows PC/Laptop of a dude or use a VM with windows 7 or XP with usb pass

google windows 7 iso and look for one you can use in vm
