Guys,

A friend installed Venom XL to my girlfriend's HTC One X (AT&T) and we're having issues. The fix supposedly is to install Beastly kernel but that requires S-OFF and came here to get that going but all attempts seem to work fine with the end result being the following line:

EVITA PVT SHIP S-ON RL

which, to me, means it's still on.

The only error I really caught during the process was a final error that said something to the effect of "failed, too many links" just before the last reboot. I thought that might be a typical normal error as the steps mentions some errors.

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

Reverted to stock and then was able to get this process working. All fine now. Seems I couldn't do it from Viper XL ROM.

ok, so i had version 1.xx, i HTCDev Unlocked, rooted, etc. and used that for a long time, then i started having the infamous SIM issue (minor) so i thought i should update, but save the root (i had never S-Off'd yet, so i just installed this version ) but during the process of looking through here, i saw CM10.2 and it looked appealing, also a friend has CM on his older device, it looks good, so i wanted to try that, but of course i need S-Off.

So my question is, with the 2.06 version linked above installed (pre-rooted, deodexed) and i have CWM touch working just fine, can i use this method to S-Off?

(i'm not afraid to go back to 1.xx just for s-off either)


EDIT: or will THIS work??

actually 111111 is just as fine. it just means you used the original jcase exploit instead of a later easier method. i had 111111 but it worked beaitifully for me

I has the cid 11111111 and error htc dev Error Code: 160. Error Reason: MID Not Allowed. Than I change CID to 22222222, and htcdev give me a unlock.bin!!!

    Welcome to Facepalm S-Off for the HTC Droid DNA

    Credits and terms:


    Exploit by beaups, full guide, testing, and concept by jcase and beaups. Thanks to dsb9938 and dr_drache for support and testing. Thanks also to all of the regulars at teamandirc. Thanks to jcase for recently modifiying the process to make it even easier and more reliable.

    Both beaups and jcase will collect the applicable active bounties. Further donations are greatly appreciated and can be sent to:

    beaups - Donate to beaups
    jcase - Donate to jcase
    dsb9938 - Donate to dsb9938
    dr_drache - Donate to dr_drache

    You can also come by irc for support or just to say thanks: #FacePalm http://chat.andirc.net:8080/?channels=facepalm

    While this process shouldn’t be too risky, bricks can happen. None of us will be accountable. If you are worried, don’t do it.

    This is a pretty simple method, however, you will need to have a working adb and fastboot environment. This method will work on any operating system that supports adb and fastboot. You should understand how to use a terminal window in your O/S. If you don’t understand adb and fastboot, you probably don’t need S-off.

    Lastly, the work herein should not be stolen, repackaged, one clicked, bat’d, etc. The binary contained in DNA-rescue.img is not GPL and may not be reused, integrated into other work, reposted, or redistributed without our permission. The kernel portion of DNA-rescue.img is derived from unmodified HTC source. That source code can be obtained from htcdev.

    For this to work, you must be HTCdev unlocked and have superCID (custom recovery/root is optional), see the thread below for help and information regarding obtaining superCID, unlock, etc. If you have taken the OTA for the DNA (sw version 2.xx) without FIRST obtaining superCID, there is no superCID nor s-off method for you currently. Note this thread is provided for convenience only. Please look for support for superCID/unlock in it's proper thread, do NOT clutter this thread with support requests regarding obtaining superCID and/or unlock! If you try this process without superCID, it will not work, and you may have issues:

    SuperCID for HTC Droid DNA:

    Download modified boot.img:

    Download signed firmware:
    http://d-h.st/nOo 8fa1cf193559d34279d2b1c1aa8c29

    1)
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader

    2)
    Code:
    fastboot oem rebootRUU
    (wait for black HTC Screen)

    3)
    Code:
    fastboot flash zip PL8320000-DNA.zip
    After a while, You should see the following error “FAILED (remote: 92 supercid! please flush image again immediately)

    4) Immediately issue the following command:
    Code:
    fastboot boot DNA-rescue.img

    5) After android is FULLY booted
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader

    6) You should see what you are looking for!

    If you need help or just care to say thanks, join us on IRC: #FacePalm http://chat.andirc.net:8080/?channels=facepalm

    Enjoy.


    Getting an error 99 instead of error 92 after step 3?


    Perform a few FULL power-downs and boots. Also, others have reported clearing caches in recovery helps as well.

    rainabba,

    This is not an OPEN DEVELOPMENT community, this is a public development community. We made decisions not to obfuscate what is going on, so the community could learn, but choose to keep the rights and source to the project. It is free for personal use, but not opensource and not free to distribute.

    Hell I remember you flipping out over someone distributing a GPL licensed binary you compiled, you have no room to talk here.

    You like to cause problems with any AndIRC related project (time and time again), you have issues with us it is very clear, but I'm going to ask you nicely to just go away. If you don't like how we handle our projects, go create your own instead of complaining.
    :cool:

    Every instance so far where someone has had this issue AND succeeded seems to require AT LEAST wiping data, but sometimes as much as an RUU flash to stock, and at worst, a complete RUU, re-lock, and start from scratch as if the phone was fresh out of the box.

    Why do you people keep insisting this? Because the OP "demanded" that nobody do it? That won't hold water and so far I can't see any reason a one-click can't be made. It might not be safe and since only the noobs would "need" it, it's likely a bad idea, but there are those like myself who will often create such scripts because they end up being useful for any number of reasons and I'll be damned if someone things that in an OPEN DEVELOPMENT community, that something like a SCRIPT won't be released because someone said so.

    Your reply to this person is offensive on so many levels. You could at least take time to explain yourself (or link to such an explanation).

    Now that you guys have S-OFF, you can use my RegawMOD Bootloader Customizer!
    Just have someone make a plugin for the HTC One <insert model here> and then customize away!

    ATTN: If you are on a DNA, PLEASE WAIT BEFORE ATTEMPTING!!

    Something is not right, the method is not working regardless of if you took the OTA or not.
    Beanups will need to look into this.

    It does work, just because you didn't get it working doesnt mean it doesnt work, please edit you post
