My plan was to s-off, install custom recovery and flash any custom rom to see if it fixed the issue. Unfortunately the revolutionary tool will not recognise the phone. Nor will unrevoked.
Any suggestions on the matter would be fantastic.
well it really depends what you have access to to be honest. you can try to factory reset the device via the bootloader and see if makes any difference to the lag/ any bootloop issues. if you can get access to a xtc clip
you can hardware s-off without revolutionary. the add a custom recovery via pc49img.zip method to the bootloader and then your on for custom roms. several small phone unlocking shops have xtc clips and will sell "unlocks" for a much better price than buying the device outright (which i do not recommend as its a LOT to only use once
) But, and xtc clip would solve your issues within 10 minutes
so it depends on what you have access to
