Unlocking BOOTLOADER

Things to Remember
o This guide is only for the HTC DESIRE SV. Do not attempt the following steps on any other device.
o The warranty will be voided after the unlock.
o Make sure your battery is charged to at least 80%.
o If you are unsure about any step, ask us in the comment section before proceeding further.

Thing to be Done
o All the files will be wiped after the unlock so take backup of all your important data.
o Enable USB debugging from the Developer options.
o Download and install the HTC Sync Manager from this link.
o Download Fastboot zip file from this link and extract the contents into a folder namedFastboot.
o Disable antivirus software on your system to avoid unnecessary interference.

Step-by-step Guide to Unlock HTC DESIRE SV Bootloader

o Login to the htcdev website and then go to the Unlock Bootloader page.
o Click the drop down devices list Under supported devices and select the option ‘All Other Supported Models‘. (select htc desire because htc desire sv will be not in the list)
o Click on ‘Begin Unlock Bootloader’ and select Yes on the confirmation screen.

Now you need to enter the following command in the command line fastboot devices (This command will tell you whether your device is detected by your computer or not. If your device shows you can go ahead with the next step.

Then redo the tutorial from the beginning.
o Keep open the command window. Then go to the third page of instruction in htcdev by clicking on ‘Proceed to Step 8‘ button.

Prompt Common Questions and their answers

Q2.
How to s-off HTC Desire sv?

Many people were trying to find how to s-off and if you try by another other method it's may lead your device bricking.



Q3.
When I delete a file in system/app or some root files it deleted and after reboot it's there?

Well, then the only conclusion that a temporary root access still can live, but without S-off you cant make sense to remove the application so as to restore...



Q4.
Is Jellbean rom available for HTC desire sv or how to upgrade to jelly bean?

Jelly bean rom is currently un available and many forum developers were developing rom as rom porting fails with htc desire sv it will take some time .....



Q5.
In ClockworkMod recovery_menu my screen is slighly left when I press down and it comes back to normal when I press the down button again .... Is the problem on my mobile?

If you mean when you click on the menu items that shift...It is normal feature of the ClockworkMod recovery. No worries
