I check for unbreacking many times a day.

Stop asking for a time. You ask every day. It will be done when it is done.

They aren't just writing instructions. They are making the software you need and the operating system you need as easy to manage and use for non technical people as possible.

This is done in their spare time. They have lives and jobs that come first.

I know it sucks if you have a bricked phone. Subscribe to the thread and wait til the title changes then you will know it is up

May not be but your forum moderator for the sensation said to stop asking constantly for ETAs 2 days ago (see below) and as I am on the irc channel every single day and see him discuss what is going on I am trying to tell you to be patient.

Just wondering...is it at all possible for HTC or any warranty repair people to detect S-OFF if the phone won't even turn on? Like in our case after the S-ON brick? Or did the phone go S-On before it got bricked?

The phone did set the flag S-on... Now it won't boot since the securety check failes. This because you don't have a signed hboot. And the fact that it can be unbricked means that everyone can find out that the hboot is not original or changed. That means they can detect it is rooted/changed. So.. either you send it for warrenty and risk the detection which means you pay to fix, or you wait for the release.

I see...I mean all I did was just flash an Europe official RUU. I did S-off first obviously and changed my CID. So does that actually change the hboot or something? Can they detect that it's not the Vodafone ROM but an Europe unbranded with a different CID?

depends if they bother to do any checks or if they just JTAG it to reflash or replace the mainboard. If you say it was during an OTA update you might get lucky... up to you if u want to risk it. if they find its user caused damage they might charge you for it...

I successfully managed to get a warranty repair without charge by claiming OTA update failed when battery ran out during the update.

Stupid of me to not read, read and read again the instructions for S-ON prior to bricking my handset.

As said previously, you may be lucky with HTC and they may not detect a tinkered handset, then again they may do.

You can try. Worst case they will ask for you to pay the repair charge but you do have the option of saying no, don't repair it and send it back to you unrepaired in which case HTC will charge a small handling and diagnostic fee. Around £20 or so from memory.

Edit: btw, well done to everyone working on this project. It was a little too late for me to try but shoudl the unfortunate happen again, I know there is a method of recovering now. Well done again all.

The problem with HTC Unlock is one of the ways they can tell if you did it or not is your CID will respond with blank when the getvar command is performed.

I dont know if there is a way to get it relocked and programmed with a CID without the ability to do a oem writecid command.
