Currently downloading the correct file

That 4shared thing was kind of a bitch to uninstall, fair warning to all others going this route. SKIP THE FIRST DL LINK IN THIS THREAD

Does it have to be the 2.20 RUU when removing tampered or can it be any RUU?

Thank you! This worked great, I used RUU method and when that was done I used method 2 to make my self a custom HBOOT 1.09, for some reason I thought this RUU would put HBOOT 2.14 on the phone but I was wrong, it put the HBOOT 1.14 on the phone, this method was easy and everything can be easily restored

I recommend just using the 2.20 RUU because whatever it does your going to probably remove it anyways

The RUU resets everything in bootloader/recovery.So after you have acheived s-off, when you run the RUU it still think's security is active and releases the watermark and flags. This will also keep super CID as with no security = no change back. I figured this out building things for the evo 4g way way back.I was surprised to it reposted several times everywhere. Some have claimed no need to relock before RUU but i dont see that as possible,since RUU checks bootloader. <<<<<<<<<<<<-PLEASE READ OP>>>>>>>>>> liamstears has the exact method perfectly laid out for you. DO NOT BYPASS/ALTER ANY STEPS. READ then READ again,you will need to re-install recovery and custom rom or root.Done correctly nothing will happen but you doing the happy dance.

I kind of like the tampered text!
I've done everything else except for tampered text. Personal I think it adds the hacked look to the bootloader, Rebel. Besides who is going to say "Hey can I see your bootloader". And to do the whole process over, no thanks. For all that have, congrats.

Re: [HBoot Mod] Remove red text from splash screen, Remove Tampered Text!
I totally agree with what you mean about following the process and not skipping any steps... And I've run the 1.85 RUU several times in the past (with S-ON) "to get a clean slate", if you will... and it always aborted and stopped at the beginning of the process if the phone wasn't oem-relocked.

Which is why I was totally shocked (with S-OFF) that 2.20 RUU ran to completion even though I had forgotten to oem-relock. And all seems well with my AT&T HOX. But yes, follow the process...

The only problem is when you relock the bootloader it says "Relocked" rather than "Locked". Well at least it did on mine when I tried it a minute ago.
