quick question. I am rooting a friend's phone. I have just unlocked the loader (HBOOT 1.27 unfortunately) and flashed Viper 5.1.0 with S-On. But, I really want S-OFF. Looking at the instructions in the first post, do we have to use CWM or can we use 4ext? If I use CWM, would I be able to flash Kitkat roms?

Please let me know if you require any other information from me.

Thanks

As you are not soff you need to use 4ext recovery

    Good day my dear friends,

    Boring Intro------
    Yesterday I was trying to root my wife's HTC Sensation which I upgraded to Official Middle East ICS 4.0.3 hboot 1.27.000 and I found this way by pure luck-----


    I installed CMW and did the rooting while the device is S-ON

    I'm not sure if this is a new method or was done before but I thought I'd share it to return some of your favors in this great forum.

    I need to thank Mr.hasoon2000 because we will use his tol from the HTC One X forum.

    Requirements:
    1. Download the HTC One X All-In-One Toolkit V1.0 from this link, Thanks Mr.hasoon2000 I hope you don't mind me using your tool here.
    2. Download the latest CMW recovery , choose the latest for Pyramid (The Sensation) in *.img. Here is the CMW 5.8.0.9 link.
    3. Download SuperSU 0.88.zip, thanks Mr.Chainfire or from this link [23.04.2012] SuperSU v0.88.

    Step By Step Method:
    1. Copy the SupperSU.zip file to your SD root.
    2. Extract the HTC One X All-In-One Toolkit V1.0 to the Disktop.
    3. Connect your Mobile and make sure you're in the charging mood and your check USB development or debugging option.
    4. Run the One X.exe application.
    5. Install the HTC drivers.
    ****If you unlocked your Sensation's bootloader from HTCdev.com then skip step 6 ****
    6. Register in HTCdev.com website, choose Unlock Bootloader, choose your device and follow the instructions. ~This May Void your Warranty~
    7. Rename the CWM recovery to CWM5827, then copy it to HTC One X All-In-One Toolkit folder/Data folder/recoveries and replace the one inside.
    8. Flush the CWM recovery using the toolkit, horray you installed CWM.
    9. From Commands choose Boot into recovery and from CWM flush the SuperSU.zip.
    10. Congratulations, You're Now ROOTED ;).


    Note: Sorry for My Bad English.

    Can 3.33 firmware be installed on a Hboot 1.27 with s-on, but unlocked by htc-dev? 4ext has been installed. I have read several different posts on the issue but got some conflicting answers.

    not possible without SOFF ..as those partitions are locked (HTC-DEV unlock only unlocks system, data, recovery and boot partitions ..keeping the rest of them still locked)

    i don't know what is my sotck rom and how to flash it i am s-on(don't know if anything has to do with that but just to mention it) i'm from europe and running stock ics 4.0.3 hboot 1.27.0000 and something 3.32 i think ?

    ---------- Post added at 09:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:24 PM ----------

    wait 4.0.3 software number 3.33.401.6 hboot 1.27.0000 kernel 3.016 and where to download it from?

    get the stock one from here (first post ->odexed version ) ..flash it via cwm without any wipe ..you will lose root this way ..but root is again one step away (flashing su zip)
    :D (remember mods wont work on stock roms ..flashing them might mess up stuff ..which you have already experienced ;))

    I tried but I'm always stucked on "waiting for device", by the way my im using windows 7 64bit.
    And im sure i set my phone properly, or do i need to install HTC Sync...thanks :)

    keep the phone in htcsync mode and see ...
    otherwise install the drivers (for drivers check my soff guide --link in my signature )

    I am struggling to flash a recovery using the One X Kit. I put the disc image in the data/recovery folder, but it does not do a thing. It boots up into an endless loop saying HTC. Not a single sign of clockworkmod. I need help please?

    go to bootloader manually ..and then connect the phone to pc

    go to your adb/fastboot folder
    copy the recovery.img (if its zip ..it will be inside) to the folder

    then open a terminal there from the adb folder (if windows hold shift + right click -> open command window here)

    then type this command

    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    then you are done
