UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER WILL FACTORY RESET THE DEVICE AND YOU WILL LOSE DATA

Introduction

Now the Hack Kit is gone for good, S-OFF is not an easy task to achieve. However, root access can be gained unlocking the bootloader with HTCDEV tool.

If you are skilled enough, then you can gain S-OFF by following this: http://tau.shadowchild.nl/attn1/?p=411

This tool WILL NOT S-OFF, get superCID or unlocksim your device but help you to unlock the bootloader, flash CWM recovery and flash SU to get root privileges .

Instructions

  2. Uninstall HTC Sync
  3. Download the EasyAceRootTool
  4. Extract the zip file
  5. Install the Drivers in the tools\windrivers folder WITH THE PHONE UNPLUGGED!!
  6. Plug the phone and let the drivers install properly
  7. Run the EasyAceRoot.cmd as Admin
  8. Follow instructions on screen
  9. Enjoy!!

IF YOUR BUILD VERSION IS NOT SUPPORTED TO UPDATE THEN:

  1. Create a goldcard using this tool: http://d-h.st/VMw, once you have the .img file patch it using the SimpleGoldCard Tool included in the tools folder. (you need a working phone for this)
  2. Find a RUU which main version is supported and higher than yours and flash it in the PD98IMG.zip way, that is what is the goldcard for. If you have a .exe RUU, then extract the rom.zip file using this method: http://www.xda-developers.com/xda-tv-2/how-to-take-apart-an-ruu-xdatv/
  3. Re run the tool and you will be able to update the hboot and unlock it

Does this tool incorporate your "HTC_Easy_Unlock_Bootloader_Tool?

cheers

That tools only to unlock bootloader. This tools will automates the process of unlocking bootloader, installing custom recovery, and flashing su binary to gain root. In other words, your stock rom will be rooted when you finish running this tool.

Glevitan please add if I am missing something...:D

I was able to get this to work which was nice however it wont write a recovery image to my phone. I'll have to play around with that later. I tried several cwm with no luck and even a few versions of twrp. Also no luck. Very strange.

Yeah, that is correct. It is just a a full version of the other. This is just for DHD/I4G because of the CWM recovery....

Actually this was the base for this, but then added the CWM linea and the SU, Busybox flashing.

Assuming the link in your original post has the update? Im not at home right now so thats why i ask
sent from my 1920 overclocked note 2 running jedi xp11

Yes, the link in the OP has the update. But you will have to download the zip again to get it...I will add extra functionality to the script later today, such as flash CWM only as is your case.

Thanks

I just thought of something. Now keep in mind i havent used htc products for a while and haveny been keeping up on them but on my old evo 3d I just flashed 4ext and didnt have to worry about s-off. On my wifes evo 3d I did the wire trick
Does the same apply to dhd in regards to 4ext? As it woukd be quicker by far

    Would it be possible to run this tool on a stock DHD with android 2.3.5 to give me root and CWN recovery. Would I then be able to flash a stock Froyo 2.2 ROM? Would I then be able to use the old visionary+ tool to give me root + S-OFF?

    Sort of trying to go backwards in time pre hack kit.

    cheers

    You can use this tool to unlock and root. It doesn't matter what tool you use to root, you can never go back to froyo once you bootloader has been updated or you will get jammed with a messed bootloader.

    After i unlock the bootloader, i flash the recovery, but now when i reboot, i can't boot on the rom -_-

    I can access to the bootloader and the recovery.
    I try to wipe factory/data and install a custom rom but it doesn't work.

    someone can help me ?
    my hboot is 2.00.0029 and recovery 5.8.1.5
    In the bootloader, i have S-ON and "unlocked"

    You need to flash the custom rom boot.img in fastboot after flashing the rom.

    So this will not require stock DHD with android GB to downgrade in order to get root access?

    First Line in the warning...this Is just for stock devices. Will only work in gb because froyo will not allow to unlock the bootloader....
