Went to the shop asked the guy and he had a xtc-clip and made the gold card what he thought was switching s-off.
But later after getting back home i noticed to my horror that S-ON is still showing.
I still have the gold card files on my sd-card.
Is there anything i can do to turn s-off now? do i still need the clip? would a bootloader change maybe work?
Please help if you can people
Thank you for verifying that this update likely patches XTC exploit though. Fine if it's exploited then you unlock but not the other way around. I had my suspicions of this.
Think I'll stick with HBOOT 1.08 and skip the 1.08.099
As the other gent said. You need the sim dummy in place to S-OFF the phone. Go back to the shop and get him to do it again.
If not try downgrading to 1.08 hboot by performing a Euro RUU 2.3.5 update then go back to the shop. He shouldn't charge you to do it again. Just don't mention your little upgrade and unlock...
