you can't perform fastboot commands with locked bootloader
you must flash a patched hboot
go to kohr-ah's thread in development section and flash the 3.33 universal firmware
it will take care for the hboot too
follow the installation steps carefully and check md5 sums before flashing(important)
then flash the recovery.img again using the command

Thanks a lot for the guide, especially the lengthy YT videos. :)

I Need some help though. I have Sensation XE with the latest RUU for South East Asia. after flashing the RUU, I went to HTC DEV and unlock the bootloader a while ago, but didn't go further cause the steps are quite troublesome.

Today I was bored and finally tried the steps from I to IV

I- How To unlock the bootloader (easy) Done a while ago.
II - How To Hboot S-Off your Sensation, with hboot 1.27 & 1.29 it works (strange but not difficult) Probably the most difficult but I did after several tried
III - How To Install the recovery, 2 different methods (easy or medium) very easy for me
IV - How To perm Root your phone (easy) ironically, I got stuck here. I had to tried several time and after toggling the signature, finally succeeded.

BUT, although the the flashing of zip in recovery was OK, I still have no Root access! Root Checker, Titanium backup, Superuser, all can't gain root access.

exactly what went wrong?

Edited:

Guess Sensation XE is as good as dead, nobody even bother to read or reply. lol.

anyway, I found the solution.

I use PG58IMG-cwm-6.0.0.3-pyramid with Superuser-3.1.3-arm-signed.zip.
rename CWM to PG58IMG.zip and put it in SD root, boot to Hboot to flash; then install the latest Superuser from recovery.
DONE, XE is finally ROOTED!

Wire trick starting point?

Does the wire have to be in pin1 first then on sd card protection or the other way around?
does it work both ways?
does it damage hardware if done both ways?
thank you

hi.thanks for all help
i have big problem with s-off with controlbear
when i jumper ponit to gnd the phone dead :((
what should i do?
Completely dead?
This happened after wire trick or during wire trick?

If it's happened after wire trick then this is a rare case
Remove battery (very important to do this), sdcard and sim and charge the phone for 7-8 hours then pop in battery and try to wake it up

Yes for 1
And unless you pop in a battery you won't get orange light turned on.
So no to second question too

Once 7-8 hours is over pop in battery and try to power it on.. It should mostly work

Otherwise jtag might help it
