You do, for One s-off is practically equivalent to supercid (we can do almost everything with s-on except flashing custom framworks/bootloaders).

[QUOTE=xl VipeR lx;42401137]WRITE SUPER CID-
(allows you to flash ANY ROM to the device regardless of the carrier. Just click RUU.EXE)

ONLY download ADB tools if you do not already have it!

1. Download adb tools here: download for WINDOWS or download for LINUX or from the attachments below
2. On your pc click on your local disk C: Drive (or D: drive for some) (WINDOWS users: Start > My computer > Local Disk (C)
3. Create a new folder called "adb" and extract the files from adb.zip into it. Make sure it doesn't create another folder in the adb folder when extracting



4. open command prompt (or terminal for linux) and type "cd" "followed by the path to your adb folder" (windows users can type "cd C:\adb")
5. Ensure your phone is switched on (regular home screen) and connect it by USB in charging mode (Ensure usb debugging is on settings)
6. enter the command "adb devices". This is to confirm your phone is connected. (It should come back with list of devices attached and your serial number)
7. enter the command "adb reboot-bootloader". (nothing further required device WILL reboot in bootloader)

IF it doesn't you can Manually put the phone in the bootloader/hboot mode
Navigate to fastboot by pressing volume down and pressing power button to select (power off > vol down + power on)
It will take you to the fastboot bootloader screen on your phone
Connect your phone via USB
Your Screen should now read fastboot USB

8. Enter the command "fastboot oem readcid". Make a note of your original CID.
9.enter the command "fastboot oem writecid 11111111"
10. enter the command "fastboot read cid" [it should confirm your CID is 11111111]
11. Press the volume down button twice on your phone and navigate to reboot bootloader, then hit power button to reboot the bootloader.
12. Bootloader will also say "CID-11111111" now to confirm You can now flash any ROM you like.

TO REVERT BACK TO ORIGINAL CID

i wrote on step 8 make a note of your original CID

follow all the steps above and then in place of step 9 enter the command "fastboot write cid YOURCID" where YOURCID is the CID you made a note of

so for me this would be "fastboot writecid O2___001"[/QUOT

awesome guide thanks i finally got s-off and super cid on my htc one t-mobile version but got a noob question what roms are safe to flash i already flash roms from international htc one what otheir roms will be safe to flash whit super cid ? at&t ? thanks again !

With s-off am I also able to flash any ROM?

No you cant flash viper rom. Partitions are different. Viper would have to include us in their rom and They dont seem to inclined to do that.



@op There are some things you can change here.. The command is fastboot oem writecid, you left out the "oem" part in some of your instructions, near the end. Could be confusing to some noobs when they type fastboot writecid or fastboot readcid and dont get anything.
Also your title says this allows you to flash any rom from any carrier, This is in fact not true. You cant install anything sprint to our phones. No roms, no ruus. This is only good for installing different ruus from compatible carriers, no bearing on custom roms. supercid not needed for custom roms. Other than that great stuff. I'm glad you didnt include hex editing here. Definitely not needed!

Do you receive otas if you have supercid or would HTC__001 be better to receive otas more quickly?

You cant get any OTA's with supercid. OTA's are finicky. For an OTA you must have stock recovery, the correct CID, the correct MID and all stock apps need to be installed. OTA's do a thorough check of your existing system to make sure you qualify for the OTA. If a RUU is available for same update, it doesn't require all the safeguards... Supercid would work fine for an RUU.

Is there a 4.2.2 RUU I can use for a UK HTC__001? Sorry if this is answered elsewhere.

there is an ruu but which some members have but they can't share it to protect their leak source (htc watermarks ruus), you can however install 4.2.2 based on the leak
