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 220.127.116.11. 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-18.104.22.168.img"? Or do I have to first install an older version of TWRP to convert my sdcard to EXT4 to then install the sagaopt 22.214.171.124 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.
3.check android version in system settings if it is lower or lower2.3.X (if its not it could be ****ty) than check bootloader version
3.1 turn off fastboot in battery settings
3.2 power don phone
3.3 boot phone with vol down clicked and if its -REVOLUTIONARY- or if its 0.98.x s-off or 2.0X s-off go to 6
if its 0.98 s-on you go to 5
if its 2.02 ask anyone else on my desires with 2.02 s-off newer worked for me but you can try it (go to 4) or only unlock it
select HTC Desire HD and dont upgrade anything (start at step 1 skip preparation) after that go to 8
if its 2.00 contine
4.download the oldest rom with you branding from http://androidruu.com/?developer=Saga

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)
