BEAUTIFUL! it took me a couple of hours, but it worked!! Thank you to everyone that built this!
i had recently received a replacement phone after my screen cracked. i decided to use ControlBear to avoid having to HTC Unlock my phone. this was my experience. hopefully it helps someone else, as i had some trouble finding references to the problem i ran into with my phone (listed in "STEP 2").
NOTE: I am a Linux user..
[ STEP 1: Temp-rooting your phone ]
I had problems finding detailed instructions for doing this. After endlessly searching, I found that there are two ways to do this.
Option 1.) Use some pre-built scripts to temp-root the phone. After much searching, I found them at the link below. You can save these scripts to automate the temp-root process, or you can do it manually (see option "2" below). FYI, when I tried to use these, I had to cat the scripts, and paste them into a new file using VIM. I guess there were some hidden chars in there messing with the linking?? Something to watch for...
Option 2.) Manually temp-root your phone using steps 1-5 on Unlimited.IO. Steps 1-5 will "temp-root" your phone. Steps 8-10 will undo the "temp-root".
[ STEP 2: Run ControlBear ]
Download the appropriate version of ControlBear here: http://unlimited.io/jb_pyramidlocked.htm
- Run (it's pretty straight-forward)
NOTE: You have to tap the wire twice for the wire trick to work!! (yeah, i just scanned the instructions first time..)
NOTE: Make sure you use a good SDcard! The problem I ran into is that my phone was powering down when i was doing the wire trick. Apparently this has something to do with the SDcard? I even tried reformatting it to FAT32 and it still didn't work--had to use a new card entirely!
Output from "power down" problem for searching...
Do not remove sdcard from phone
Do wire-trick now!! Check the instructions at http://unlimited.io
=== Waiting device....
Hmmm, still no device
Hmmm, still no device
After I swapped out the SDcard for a newer one, ControlBear worked for me after 3 tries. ;D
[ STEP 3: Reboot ]
After running ControlBear, your phone will sit at the bootloader(?) screen. Just scroll down to the reboot option and reboot...
[ STEP 4: Undo the temp-root you did on your phone earlier ]
Run steps 8-10 from the Unlimited.IO site.
Hope this helps somebody.
