So after watching these videos I have a question. The bootloader is unlocked but it still is s-on... Is it even necessary to get s-off?

I think I answered my own question reading around a bit but correct me if I'm wrong.. Not having s-off just limits us from accessing the system partition from within the phone, correct? We still have full access from recovery.. Is that correct?

You can access the system partition, you just can't write to it.

Great job on the videos!

Thank you for making the videos.

Unlock & root went flawlessly using a mac running os x.

None of this was possible without jcase. Thank you jcase!!

New to HTC

should i wait for S-off before I unlock and root? Is S-off achievable after root?

Awesome videos man! It really helps to see someone do it rather than just following a tutorial.

Also want to say jcase is an awesome guy! I ran into some trouble with the exploit but jcase jumped on team viewer and got me all straightened out.

We should all remember show the dev's the respect and appreciation they deserve.

Jcase is da man. I had some issues with my pc so he set up adb on my mac via teamviewer. I've never had that kind of support from a dev!

So....I have seen an unsecured kernel that in several forums originally posted by dsb.
I did not see "flashing the unsecured kernel" in any of your videos however in those kernel posts it (kernel) has been flashed in order access recovery and root.
Am I missing something?
