I then had to relock the phone, go to HTCDEV and use the HTC unlock tool, then I re-rooted the phone. So, I've been HBOOT 1.45.0013, with radio 11.59.3504.20_2, and I'm S-OFF, unlocked, rooted, without ever doing a "wire trick".

Wow, to the best of my knowledge this isn't possible as the s-off part part of the .07 would be due to a patched hboot, that just ignores the security flag checks. Flashing another bootloader would erase the old one which means erase the patch. Radio s-off is much lower level and flashing firmware would not return to s-on no matter the firmware flashed. So correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't the rev hboot just a patched bootloader? Just doesn't make sense how flashing a new bootloader and unlocking the phone would keep the radio secure flags turned off...

I don't know the technical details. I just know that my phone originally had 1.45.0007, now has 1.45.0013, and it is S-OFF and unlocked. I never did any "wire trick". When the new radio came out, there was lots of discussion about what to do to maintain S-OFF. I followed those discussions intently. I'm sure if I went back through the archives here on XDA I'd see where it was done, but I don't have the patience for that right now.

Some day I may dig through the old threads so I can wrap my head around this, seems strange to me but thanks for the reply. [/OT]
Is there anyone one out there that's unrooted or interested in bring their phone back to stock and test this all out?

Keep in mind that I am only 16 and have only been coding in C# since June, so I may not be able to implement every requested feature, and if it is possible, I may require assistance from our more skilled members. Any and all criticism is welcome, from the handling of a certain function to the misalignment of a button. I'm a neat freak myself, so no issue is too small! I hope you enjoy the toolkit!



This toolkit uses the WinDroid HTC One X+ Toolkit as a base, so most features are universal besides the recoveries and S-OFF functions. If there is a feature, function or command that is more specific to the myTouch 4G Slide that would improve the toolkit, please let me know!

FEATURES
  • Attain S-OFF
  • Drag and Drop Files
  • Full Bootloader Unlock
  • Flash Custom Recovery
  • Flash Custom Kernel
  • Flash System, Data and Radio Images

  • Sideload ROM's
  • Push and Pull Files
  • Install and Uninstall APK's
  • Full Backup and Restore
  • Get Logcats
  • Relock Bootloader
  • Write SuperCID
  • Flash Stock RUU
  • Custom ADB and Fastboot Commands
  • and many more!

Any mirrors? DevHost is down right now...and I'm dying to see if this is the answer to finally get S-OFF for my Doubleshot
If not then I'll just wait. :/

I should have looked closer, I am seeing there's a button for each different method. Duuuhhhh :P Still a great looking tool!

So does it require a wire trick to achieve S-OFF with this tool or not? I'm already S-off, just wondering if that will be even more easy than the wire trick for those lazy ones who's still s-on?

Because the S-OFF methods here are based off of the current methods, most people will still need to do the wire trick.
