One click ENG S-OFF​

HTC - Quietly Unlocked

I have created a small and simple tool to S-OFF a Desire HD after it has been permrooted with Visionary. After you have run this tool, you will have an engineering hboot (S-OFF). Remember that making a phone S-OFF is dangerous business, and you use this tool at your own risk! The tool also works with any custom ROM, as long as you have root permissions (and Radio S-OFF, which was required to flash the custom ROM in the first place).

System requirements:
  • Windows XP SP2 or higher
  • .NET Framework 3.5
  • HTC Sync (or ADB drivers)
  • Desire HD with lower than 1.7x stock ROM OR any custom ROM, tick "I have Radio S-OFF" in the tool


  • Now that your device is S-OFF, and you can get Rom manager from the market, which will install a ClockWorkMod recovery for you. Just open it up and tap "Flash ClockworkMod recovery".

I fixed the WinXP problem with my Kernel Update Utility, and I think that it will affect this tool, too. I will prepare a new build tomorrow.

I would like to keep these tools separate, because new users get easily confused. This app is meant for them, to easily gain s-off.

e: Just uploaded a new one :)

So if my rooted DHD doesnt in fact install clockworkmod recovery from the Rom manager (although it does not return any error), could it be because I am not sure if the device S-off-ed?

    No, actually it'll make it much harder. You won't be able to flash most custom ROMs, and if you then want to properly root your phone with the AAHK, you'll have to re-lock your phone with the official tool first.

    I would avoid the HTC unlock altogether to be honest.

    Agreed. There are lots of questions in the Q&A about this because people have used the official method and not got the results they wanted.
