Yeah I found that out through trial and error lol. To install the ROM though, do you need S-OFF or can it stay S-ON? If it needs S-OFF, can you point me to a forum about getting S-OFF?

Got it downloaded and installed, its amazing. Only problem is that I got a bootloop when I first loaded it, but that was fixed by clearing the cache, dalvik cache, and something else. Thanks!

For those of you that are going to use this ROM, if you install with S-ON, and then later decide that you want to S-OFF (like me), then you will need to reflash the ROM after you achieve S-OFF, otherwise the ROM freezes at the "Sense 5" startup screen and then begins a bootloop up to that point.

I apologize if the answer's obvious, but how exactly do you achieve S-Off?

I used the rumrunner s-off tool, but I got stuck in the bootloop,so I had to stop it, but I still got s-off.

I'm in the same boat as you were in; mine's stuck in a bootloop; I don't know if I got s-off though. How did you manage to get yours to stop bootlooping?

    Gotcha, I figured as much. I remember seeing "S-ON/S-OFF" on my previously owned One VX, but no, I don't see it on my First. I was running Rumrunner and it seemed to work, but it kept saying "Pouring........" and so forth. I'm gonna try what you did and see if I can get it to boot back up

    Yeah mine was stuck at "Pouring (2)..............." and it got to about 4 lines of dots until I stopped it, and I guess it worked because I got it to say S-OFF in my bootloader. I also couldn't get it to get S-OFF with Moonshine or Firewater, only rumrunner worked for me. Good luck!

    Lol I only have access to my computer and no one else's. I believe my friends all have Windows 8 as well. But I meant any suggestions as in what can I do on my computer. (Side note: If it isn't too much trouble, if you respond, can you quote my reply so that I'll know whether you responded or not? I had no idea you had responded much earlier today. My apologies for my delayed response)

    Yeah I forgot to quote you earlier lol. And suggestions for your computer would probably to set up a harddrive partition, about 20 GB, and then dual boot your computer with Windows 7 and Windows 8. But you would need to go back to stock ROM if possible, because I tried to use a different Windows 7 machine than what I had from the beginning of unlocking the bootloader to rooting it, and it didn't install all of the drivers. So basically, dual boot your machine with Windows 7/8, reflash stock ROM (if you are not on stock ROM), and install the drivers to Windows 7, and then do whatever you gotta do.
