  2. Install HTC drivers from here and reboot your PC.
  3. Make sure you set HTC Sync as default mode with Ask Me Everytime disabled and Enable USB Debugging option.
    (Default mode & ask me options are in Settings>Connect to PC. USB Debugging option is in Settings>Developer Options)
  4. NEVER use USB hubs or USB 3.0 ports!
    [*]Disable your anti virus program when you run the tool
  5. Ensure that you have a battery level of at least 40% before using this too.l
  6. Download and open the zip file. Unzip it to any convenient location.
  7. Run "Menu.bat" file and follow the onscreen instructions.
  8. Please note that the menu you are presented with shows you the options & not the steps
  9. DO NOT run the file as administrator.
  10. Please ensure that you are connected to the internet while using the tool since files are not packed into the tool & need to be downloaded as required.
  11. When asked for a response, always type 1 for yes & 0 or anything else for no. When asked to press enter to exit, press Enter to exit & not the close button on the window.

Button-Reminder-icon.png
:::: TIPS ::::
Button-Reminder-icon.png

pGJub.png

  • For JuopunutBear S-OFF, HTC Dev unlock method is recommended because the timing of the wire trick does not need to be 100% exact. The fact that the unlock token has been used will not be visible on the phone. This is what HTC uses to determine whether the bootloader has been unlocked. No matter which method you follow, the outcome is the same. If two identical phones were S-OFF each using one of these methods, you could not differentiate one from the other. (This is not a false claim; I have seen it myself.)
  • For problems with JuopunutBear refer here or join IRC Channel #juopunutbear on freenode. Note: The method without HTC Dev unlock is not supported by the channel, except for cases where the motherboard has been replaced. NO TOOL RELATED QUESTIONS ON THIS CHANNEL. (only questions related to JB & wire trick are entertained)
  • For problems with JuopunutBear S-OFF without bootloader unlock, refer here.
  • For JuopunutBear S-OFF (Hboot 1.2x) you may lose data on SD Card. You should backup or use a spare SD Card.
  • For JuopunutBear S-OFF using unlock bootloader method, you only need to unlock your bootloader using HTC Dev. Rooting is done within the tool (optional).
  • For Hboot ≤1.18 S Off, please ensure that you don't have custom recovery installed. If you do, refer this post for the solution.
  • For writing custom CID, please refer here for a list of valid CIDs based on provider/locations.
  • For general help, post in this thread or join IRC Channel #helpmenow on freenode. [I can be found here. If you see me there but I don't reply, you can take help from others.]

Warning for non HTC Sensation/XE/4G devices:
This tool is not intended for any other phones, although some features may work for other phones as well.
The reason you see batch files & not an executable is because my script is open to all.
View it, use it, change it, do as you wish!

I am against the uploading of the tool to other locations.
I will NOT provide support to anyone who has not downloaded the tool from the thread.
You will not duplicate my work; you may use the code as you please, but not the entire tool itself.
I don't claim full credit for this utility.
I am not to be held responsible for any damage this program may cause to you or your devices.
Use it at your own risk.
I will provide support for the tool here in this thread & on #helpmenow IRC Channel. NO PMs PLEASE.
I hold no responsibility for the outcomes from the use of this tool.

:::: FAQs ::::
Button-Favorite-icon.png

pGJub.png
Q. How safe is this?
It's as safe as it can get without someone being physically present to ensure that you do everything right. If you follow the instructions, this is very safe.
Here is what makes it safe:
  • Ample, easy-to-follow instructions.
  • Dynamic checks to ensure previous steps completed properly & device is exactly as it needs to be.
  • MD5sum checking for downloaded files before flashing.
  • If anything fails, it is retried. If it fails constantly, then all changes are undone & error messages are shown.
  • Regular updates with new features.
  • Immediate bug fixes when reported.
  • Dedicated real-time support on IRC (#kgs1992 on Freenode network).

Q. Why did you make this?
Of course, it was intended to be helpful to newbies to S-OFF & flash their phones and also serve as a good example for making a completly n00b-proof toolkit for anyone who wanted to make one.
Started off as wanting to learn something new. Helped me learn not only how to write batch scripts but by extension I learnt many more things & also more about the phone.​

Q. Where can I find support?
If you find yourself in need of help with using this, you can find real-time support on IRC (#kgs1992 on Freenode network). [Please note that as the single person maintaining this project, it is difficult to be online & answer questions 24/7. You might have to wait a while at times.]​

Q. Will you make this for more devices in the future?
If I get enough requests. Requests can be made using the feedback form on this page.​

Q. Will you make this for a different platform (Linux/Mac)?
If I have the time, I may. But this probably isn't going to happen.​

Q. How can I help?
You can leave your feedback, suggestions, comments, etc. here in this thread or use the feedback form on this page.
If you like my work, you can push my thanks button (This can be found at the bottom-left of this post.) & rate 5★ s for the thread. (This can be found at the top-right of the page.)

NO LONGER SUPPORTED
I no longer own a HTC Sensation, nor do I have the time required to provide help and support personally.
v8.0 is the last increment for this utility. You may still use the utility at your own discretion.

Great...can work on hboot 1.29,i knw it says 1.18 but just askin :)

Sent from my HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio Z715e using XDA

Well, Revolutionary only supports devices with Hboot 1.18 or less.
Maybe if I modify this to make it work with other programs, it's possible.
EDIT: Yes, now works on Hboot 1.2x :)

Unfortunately I will probably never get to use this tool, but none less thank you and keep up the work. But one complaint, this should have been posted in the Sensation Android Development forum.

Well, when I asked dexter, he was of the opinion that it should be placed in general.
And thank you :)
EDIT: Moved to Sensation Android Development

Fixes

Hboot ≤1.18 S Off, removing custom recovery:
Tacoroot won't work with custom recovery. You need to flash the stock recovery.

  • Make sure that your bootloader is unlocked.
  • Download this rcovery.img
  • Put it into the tools folder. (If you get a overwrite warning, just replace the previous file)
  • Run menu.bat & select option 3 (always select no for method 2). (Method 1 will install any recovery named recovery.img)
  • Re-run menu.bat & select the appropriate options for S Off.
  • If it fails again, then perform a factory reset & try again.
  • If it fails again, It would be a good idea to run an RUU

I've previously S-OFF'd using revolutionary and rooted my Sensation 4G with clockworkmod but failed to get the SuperCID working.
but I've been exploring looking into flashing ARHD and that required both 4ext and SuperCID.

Would I just run this tool without using the S-OFF part and proceed to install 4ext, root, supercid, etc?

Yes, you can choose what you want to perform. So, run the Menu.bat once select the Install 4ext option.
Then run again & select SuperCID.
And then repeat, choose install firmware.
You will have to interact only with the PC, not with your phone.

This application does S-off in devices with Hboot 1:27 S-on?

How it works?

I find it very difficult to make S-off with the Hboot 1.27, using the method JuopunutBear..

Awaiting your response, to download and install.

If you read carefully, it uses the same method. Just more organized because everything is done from a single program including the temp root.

Also doesn't void your warranty since it doesn't use the HTC Dev method.

Ok, I'll have to make the process of touching the wire on the card? Mine is 1:27 Hboot Unlocked S-on, I got through the Htc dev.

Since you have already used HTC Dev to unlock, I recommend you don't use this utility because all you need to do is run the control bear and perform the wire trick.
And yes, the tool will employ the same methods as JuopunutBear (except HTC Dev Unlock) because that is the same application used in this tool.
EDIT: Now supports HTC Dev unlocked devices for SOff

    :::: TIPS ::::
    Button-Reminder-icon.png

    pGJub.png

    • For JuopunutBear S-OFF, HTC Dev unlock method is recommended because the timing of the wire trick does not need to be 100% exact. The fact that the unlock token has been used will not be visible on the phone. This is what HTC uses to determine whether the bootloader has been unlocked. No matter which method you follow, the outcome is the same. If two identical phones were S-OFF each using one of these methods, you could not differentiate one from the other. (This is not a false claim; I have seen it myself.)
    • For problems with JuopunutBear refer here or join IRC Channel #juopunutbear on freenode. Note: The method without HTC Dev unlock is not supported by the channel, except for cases where the motherboard has been replaced. NO TOOL RELATED QUESTIONS ON THIS CHANNEL. (only questions related to JB & wire trick are entertained)
    • For problems with JuopunutBear S-OFF without bootloader unlock, refer here.
    • For JuopunutBear S-OFF (Hboot 1.2x) you may lose data on SD Card. You should backup or use a spare SD Card.
    • For JuopunutBear S-OFF using unlock bootloader method, you only need to unlock your bootloader using HTC Dev. Rooting is done within the tool (optional).
    • For Hboot ≤1.18 S Off, please ensure that you don't have custom recovery installed. If you do, refer this post for the solution.
    • For writing custom CID, please refer here for a list of valid CIDs based on provider/locations.
    • For general help, post in this thread or join IRC Channel #helpmenow on freenode. [I can be found here. If you see me there but I don't reply, you can take help from others.]

    Warning for non HTC Sensation/XE/4G devices:
    This tool is not intended for any other phones, although some features may work for other phones as well.

    I am against the uploading of the tool to other locations.
    I will NOT provide support to anyone who has not downloaded the tool from the thread.

    • Reboot your device normally, or to bootloader or recovery.
    • S-OFF for Hboot ≤1.18 devices using Revolutionary
    • S-OFF for Hboot 1.2x devices using JuopunutBear (Wire trick is needed)
    • Installing 4EXT Touch Recovery or CWM recovery for all S-OFF / HTC Dev Unlocked devices.

    :::: FAQs ::::
    Button-Favorite-icon.png

    pGJub.png
    Q. How safe is this?
    It's as safe as it can get without someone being physically present to ensure that you do everything right. If you follow the instructions, this is very safe.
    Here is what makes it safe:
    • Ample, easy-to-follow instructions.
    • Dynamic checks to ensure previous steps completed properly & device is exactly as it needs to be.
    • MD5sum checking for downloaded files before flashing.
    • If anything fails, it is retried. If it fails constantly, then all changes are undone & error messages are shown.
    • Regular updates with new features.
    • Immediate bug fixes when reported.
    • Dedicated real-time support on IRC (#kgs1992 on Freenode network).

    Q. Why did you make this?
    Of course, it was intended to be helpful to newbies to S-OFF & flash their phones and also serve as a good example for making a completly n00b-proof toolkit for anyone who wanted to make one.
    Started off as wanting to learn something new. Helped me learn not only how to write batch scripts but by extension I learnt many more things & also more about the phone.​

    Q. Where can I find support?
    If you find yourself in need of help with using this, you can find real-time support on IRC (#kgs1992 on Freenode network). [Please note that as the single person maintaining this project, it is difficult to be online & answer questions 24/7. You might have to wait a while at times.]​

    Q. Will you make this for more devices in the future?
    If I get enough requests. Requests can be made using the feedback form on this page.​

    Q. Will you make this for a different platform (Linux/Mac)?
    If I have the time, I may. But this probably isn't going to happen.​

    Q. How can I help?
    You can leave your feedback, suggestions, comments, etc. here in this thread or use the feedback form on this page.

    For some reason, this post and the next post were interchanged randomly and hence, I had to duplicate the OP.

    UPDATE v8.0 Released!
    http://kgs1992.com/kgs-utility
    Please take a moment to provide your feedback: http://kgs1992.com/contact-me

    Known issues:
    -At times window closes regardless of what option is chosen.
    (I've misinterpreted how the exit code from the option menu is to be used which is what has caused this problem.)
    Temporary fix: Close all windows. Make sure no more than one window is open at any given time.

    -Juopunutbear file unavailable for Windows.
    I'm sorry, I can do nothing about this. This is just Unlimited.io 's decision & I'm not going to be distributing copies of their files.
    Please do not make requests for this.

    -Installing the tool in Read Only locations like Program Files will make everything stop working.
    (I'm deciding on whether to re-code the scripts to make them use the temp folders or to set the installation directory as desktop & keep it permanent. I am recoding batch files to use temp folder for temporary files. Also, will insert a system variable to use in batch files for referring to KGS Utility's installation directory.)
    Temporary Fix: Go to the folder where you installed the tool, Uninstall it & install it on the desktop.

    -For S-OFF on Hboot 1.27 using unlocked bootloader method, there is a constant message regarding "file not found/md5 error".
    (This is due to an if statement which has the wrong file name in the exist condition)
    Temporary Fix: After downloading the files needed, close the window & restart from the menu.
    OR do what is mentioned in this post.

    UPDATE:
    I'm no longer able to make any further updates as I don't really have the time.

    Great...can work on hboot 1.29,i knw it says 1.18 but just askin :)

    Sent from my HTC Sensation XE with Beats Audio Z715e using XDA

    Well, Revolutionary only supports devices with Hboot 1.18 or less.
    Maybe if I modify this to make it work with other programs, it's possible.
    EDIT: Yes, now works on Hboot 1.2x :)

    Unfortunately I will probably never get to use this tool, but none less thank you and keep up the work. But one complaint, this should have been posted in the Sensation Android Development forum.

    Well, when I asked dexter, he was of the opinion that it should be placed in general.
    And thank you :)
    EDIT: Moved to Sensation Android Development

    Fixes

    Hboot ≤1.18 S Off, removing custom recovery:
    Tacoroot won't work with custom recovery. You need to flash the stock recovery.

    • Make sure that your bootloader is unlocked.
    • Download this rcovery.img
    • Put it into the tools folder. (If you get a overwrite warning, just replace the previous file)
    • Run menu.bat & select option 3 (always select no for method 2). (Method 1 will install any recovery named recovery.img)
    • Re-run menu.bat & select the appropriate options for S Off.
    • If it fails again, then perform a factory reset & try again.
    • If it fails again, It would be a good idea to run an RUU
