You can also come by irc for support or just to say thanks: #FacePalm http://chat.andirc.net:8080/?channels=facepalm

While this process shouldn’t be too risky, bricks can happen. None of us will be accountable. If you are worried, don’t do it.

This is a pretty simple method, however, you will need to have a working adb and fastboot environment. This method will work on any operating system that supports adb and fastboot. You should understand how to use a terminal window in your O/S. If you don’t understand adb and fastboot, you probably don’t need S-off.

Lastly, the work herein should not be stolen, repackaged, one clicked, bat’d, etc. soffbin3 is not GPL and may not be reused, integrated into other work, reposted, or redistributed without our permission.

For this to work, you must be rooted and have superCID (unlock/custom recovery is optional), see the threads below for help and information regarding obtaining superCID, unlock, root, etc. Note these threads are provided for convenience only. Please look for support for them in each respective thread if you need it, do NOT clutter this thread with support requests regarding obtaining superCID and/or root! If you try this process without superCID, it will not work, and you may have issues!:

SuperCID for HTC Evo 4G LTE:

Code:
adb shell
su
echo -ne "22222222" | dd of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5 bs=1 seek=20

1)
Code:
adb reboot bootloader
2)
Code:
fastboot oem rebootRUU
(wait for black HTC Screen)

3)
Code:
fastboot flash zip PJ7510000-EvoLTE.zip

After a while, You should see the following error “FAILED (remote: 92 supercid! please flush image again immediately)

7) Immediately issue the following command:

Code:
fastboot boot EvoLTE-rescue.img
(this is fastboot boot, NOT fastboot flash!)

8) Allow device to boot (may not fully boot on some custom roms)

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
9) You should see what you are looking for!

If you need help or just care to say thanks, join us on IRC: #FacePalm http://chat.andirc.net:8080/?channels=facepalm

Enjoy.

Took me all of 2 minutes to get s-off.

Extra info: This works on 3.16 firmware and subsequently 3.15 as well.

Probably worked on 3.16 for you as you already had supercid, I'm guessing the recent 3.16 update prevents changing the CID.

I dont think so because we've never used CID on this phone before. Only way to find out is to test.

Pretty sure it's that first 3 lines of code - makes your phone believe it has older firmware so you can flash older RUUs/updates. Swear there used to be a thread for it around here somewhere.
