No No , he said no , it is not Radio S-OFF , which is the full s-off , this is an hboot s-off , better than nothing

Maybe i dont understand something, but nashshafrulrezza think about http://unlimited.io/runnymede/ where u can read about

This page contains modifed hboots for the HTC Sensation XL (runnymede). These hboots provide S-OFF and limited Engineering hboot behaviour for the HTC Runnymede. The hboots enable flashing of radios and also roms from any region (SuperCID).

Or i dont understand what i reading or u are wrong

flashing of radios has nothing to do with radio/hboot S-OFF. These hboots use the same general approach as the original ones in this thread.

We did not finish off anything. The work in the OP stands on it's own merits.

We implmented some minor additional functionality that was useful to us and decided to share it because fardjadb indicated that he did not have enough time, due to priorities in the real world (exams) and also becasue we already had an ICS hboot which some people might want.

I want to be perfectly clear about this. You are only getting this functionality becasue of fardjadb's work, had he not done what he did we would not even have looked at this device. Please be sure to thank him for his work.

You should take some credit for your work too, we understand that without the work from fardjab this would never of been possible, but still credit where credit is due right?

What don't you understand? S-Off means security off, the standard way of acheiving S-Off is by switching off the security flag held on the radio partition. This is commonly known as Radio S-Off. There is also another type of S-Off called engeneering S-Off, this is acheived by flashing a special engeering bootloader (hboot) after you already have standard S-Off.

Now this is neither, This is a special modifed version of the standard HTC hboot by fardjab, this hboot tricks the device into thinking it is S-Off and allows end users to perform security protected actions. But unlike "real" S-Off this is not perm, flashing a stock HTC hboot or RUU will return you back to S-On status.

Apparently there are some issues with recoveries on ICS, particularly with mounting usb storage.

I have added an (as far as I can tell) fully working CWM based ICS recovery to the downloads page.
