Everyone that uses this guide should make sure to hit the thanks button for friend.evil, I know it was hard work making this guide and watching this thread to make sure everyone that needs help gets it.

Nice write up. Question, when you get s-off from unlimited.io do you still have an official hboot or is it a modified unlimited.io hboot?

The reason I wondered if it was a modified hboot is because if you use the writesecreflag command to s-on with an "unofficial" hboot, it will brick the device. The safest thing to do in my opinion is to flash an official hboot after getting s-off just incase you don't remember this when you want s-on.

D_ Back to S-ON

1_Go to fastboot
2_Type fastboot oem writesecureflag 3
3_fastboot reboot-bootloader

^DONT
unless you wanna brick ur device..
its like this.. the hboot is still revolutionary, not stock.. if u use SON on it, the device will brick, and since you have soff, theres no way of reviving the device except for jtagging.
SON trick only works on stock bootloader.

Nice post.
Maybe in the B section could be info about using ADB and fastboot+the files.

And also exist another recovery then CWM (4-EXT touch...)

And also in B section should be in step 14 "same methods from 10->14" not from the 1. step

Also what I read, with the unlimited method the bootloader will be locked back after S-OFF

thanks for helping but in htcdev they explain how to use them and who will care about locked when someone has s-off?

and he/she can get it back if he goes to htcdev.com and do the same methods( correct when he click yes the phone will freeze when you unlock using the token but take out the battery and put it back you will notice it's unlocked)
