Hello all,
I'm stuck!

I have an HCT one mini on Hboot 2.21.0000

M4_UL PVT SHIP S-ON RL

OS-2.12.61.3

I have tried every tutorial, and adapted a little myself adding a su here and a su there.
On revone I never get an error-2, rumrunner, firewater, not thing is working.

Can someone maybe throw me down a different track, maybe even different rom/kernel.
Closest it feels that I got was on PAC-rom.
Desperate for s-off/ superCID

Thanks

Can someone pleas help. I'm on 4.4.2, HBoot 2.21 and I have root. But revone gives me error code 1, and I cannot get S-OFF.

-EDIT: I used ./revone -p (small P) and revone said successful, and after ./revone -s 0 -u it also said successful, but when I reboot to bootloader I'm still S-ON :(

-EDIT 2: It seems that RumRunner did the trick. Failed on first try at pouring 2, but showed S-OFF in HBoot. 2nd try worked fine.

Is your phone rooted?

If you are rooted...
Enter adb shell
Type "su" and press enter
After you press enter, you'll get a prompt on your phone to Grant SuperUser access to adb. Grant that!
Now your adb shell prompt should change from $ to #

Hi guys, i can't manage to download the Jmz rom needed to gain S-Off (androidfiles.org is quite unstable these days), does anyone has a mirror or can upload it somewhere?

You don't have to use that particular rom. I think any rom with an unsecured kernel will work. I used mini whooper's stock sense 6 rom for example, but I was already on the new partition layout.

Did you get "error message -2"

On the -P command?

Did you make sure to use an uppercase P there? It makes a difference.
Yes mate all as for tutorial steps, got error 2 rebooted and got successful. And yea i know that i'm not new with linux uppercase stuffs ;) btw i did copy paste so no error on command side, just that ugly S-ON still :(

Error 2 or Error -2?

edit: I'd probably try rumrunner if i was you. I've only gotten revone to work when coming directly from stock (hboot 2.19 with 4.2.2, sense 5 OS)

How to flash this rom and this kernel? From recovery? And whats the steps?

1)flash the rom with a full wipe
2)reboot recovery
3)flash the kernel
4)reboot

It's right?


P.s. I'm on sense 6 and 4.4.2 stock rom. It's ok this? (sorry for all this questions xD)

Bootloader loop

So my HTC One Mini is rooted an unlocked and when I try flashing the ROM and Kernel is goes fine but then it's in a bootloader loop.

Any solution?
I'm trying REVONE to S-OFF because rumrunner tells me i need an "unsecure" kernel to continue the S-OFF process and I don't know where to find this.

Thanks

    Code:
    [B][COLOR="Red"][CENTER]Neither phone FAQ , or assume I, nor the thread creator on XDA

    Whats needed?

    • I tested HBoot versions 2.19 & 2.21!
    • Unlocked Bootloader over HTCdev
    • A rooted stock ROM & Kernel (Its important without it will not work!) JmzM4StockRootedOdex-WWE-1.22.401.1 & Jmz M4 Kernel
    • some knowledge how to use ADB and Fastboot
    • cmd-tool, every windows computer should have it
    • i could happen that it not work on the first time, just do it over again from beginning and it will work (i had that problem)
    • it does not looks very user-friendly (no GUI)
    • it will not brick your devices (BUT its possible because its a hack)
    • the possibility to get S-Off without problems is DAMN high :D


    Download:
    1. download Android SDK for ADB.
    2. Download revone: http://revolutionary.io/revone

    Guide:

    You can use any OS for that guide, you just need an cmd-tool.
    1. Download revone (above) and copy it to your adb folder, while Android is running.[/B]):
    2. open cmd and use following commands:
      Code:
      adb push revone /data/local/tmp/
    3. now use these commands:
      Code:
      adb shell
      Code:
      cd /data/local/tmp
      Code:
      chmod 755 revone
    4. Prepare S-Off:
      Code:
      ./revone -P
      • revone will give you an error now: "error message -2"
      • NOW Restart your device but leave USB debugging turned on and use following commands:

        Code:
        adb shell
        Code:
        cd /data/local/tmp
        Code:
        ./revone -s 0 -u

        revone should tell you that everything went fine and i got S-Off.


      • Here just some other commands for revone:
        • -u --> Unlock Bootloader
        • -l --> Lock Bootloader (It will not simply lock it, it will lock it like it was never unlocked)
        • -r --> Relock Bootloader (mark the device as unlocked)
        • -t --> "Tampered" will be removed from bootloader
        • !!!IMPORTANT! YOU NEED FULLY STOCK ROM, STOCK RECOVERY AND STOCK BOOT BEFORE YOU CAN USE THIS!!! fastboot oem writesecureflag 3 --> restore S-ON


    5. If revone say OK then reboot your device into bootloader and check if you got S-Off[/code]
    6. You should see S-Off Now.
    7. Optional: Run revone (via CMD) and remove that tampered flag:
      Code:
      adb shell
      Code:
      cd /data/local/tmp
      Code:
      ./revone -t

    Super CID :


    Guide:

    1. Boot into bootloader and connect via fastboot USB to your PC
    2. open CMD to use (in my case) cd /Android/ (if your adb folder is on C:/Android/)
    3. use following command
      Code:
      fastboot oem writecid 11111111
      --> Its 8 times the 1!
    now lets check it twice:
    • Code:
      adb reboot bootloader
    Or:
    1. Code:
      fastboot reboot-bootloader
    2. Code:
      fastboot oem readcid
      --> You should see CID 11111111 now.

    Now your device is S-Off! :D
    Now lets install a custom recovery and a stock ROM to get the OTA.

    Install TWRP Recovery:
    Please visit this XDA Thread
    You can Download the latest touch recovery there.
    rename it now to twrp.img and copy it to your ADB folder.

    Guide:

    1. Boot into bootloader and connect via fastboot USB to your PC
    2. open CMD to use (in my case) cd /Android/ (if your adb folder is on C:/Android/)
    3. use following command
      Code:
      fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
    now use

    • Code:
      fastboot erase cache

    • Code:
      fastboot reboot-bootloader
    Now enter recovery by selecting recovery from bootloader and enter it with power-button

    Create now an backup (it shoudl take a lot of time cuz its almost stock device :D)
    Reboot into android now
    Now download this file:
    My Link :D
    Thanks to scotty2000 for the mirror :D
    You can google for an Stock 4.2.2 - 1.22.401.1 Odexed Nandroid Backup
    Copy this nandroid backup into the TWRP backup folder.
    Important (It should looks like /TWRP/BACKUP/SHA********** [Ur device ID]/Stock 4.2.2 - 1.22.401.1 Odexed/backup files)
    Now reboot your device into recovery again and restore it with the backup we copied.
    After it sucessfully restore your device boot it up
    (Maybe TWRP will ask you to restore root, answer with NO!)

    1. Wait until device booted and connect to WIFI.
    2. Goto settings -> info -> Software-Updates and let him check for an OTA
    3. If you have SuperCID you should get an OTA notification.
    4. Download it but NOT install it.
    5. Connect your phone to your PC and copy the OTA
      (sdcard/downloads/) to your PC.
    6. Reboot your device into Bootloader and open CMD
    7. [Make sure you have WinRAR installed, its the only one wich worked for me]
    8. Open the OTA file with winrar, inside it there is a firmware.zip file.
    9. extract it somewhere or if you are lazy like me :D download it here
    10. Open the firmware.zip and extract the recovery.img and copy it to your adb folder.
    11. Boot into bootloader and connect via fastboot USB to your PC
    12. open CMD to use (in my case) cd /Android/ (if your adb folder is on C:/Android/)
    now use

    • Code:
      fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    • Code:
      fastboot erase cache

    • Code:
      fastboot reboot-bootloader
    now reboot your device into android.

    Let it check for OTAs and if it show you that an OTAs was downloaded and waiting for install....
    Install it!
    Your device should reboot into Stock recovery and install the OTA.
    It takes 5 - 10 mins after it the device reboots into a fresh & clean Android 4.3.

    NEW 24.02.2014
    After installed to 4.3 just look for a new Update.
    You will get a notification that a new update is ready to download.
    After downloading Android 4.4.2 just install it and... your done!


    You can do now a factory reset to set the device up from beginning :D

    If you want to root your device just download this file and install it via recovery:
    Thanks tbwshaun for the Link :D


    For kitkat (4.4.2) User, pls use this SuperSU.zip to get root.


    But if you to lazy to go to recovery to flash stuff just use Flashify App
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.cgollner.flashify&hl=de
    flash it from running android and simply reboot :D
    (You can flash boot.img & recovery.img also with this app)

    And i can also confirm that Xposed Framework & Sense Toolbox
    wich is used in ARHD Roms, works very well too.
    It has a lot of custom stuff in it :D


    I already did it to 6 devices now and it works without problems.
    The devices was from Vodafone, O2, Telekom and many others :D

    To fix the bootloop with the combination of s-off and unlocked bootloader, delete the file at /system/bin/hcheck

    Its still uploading. And Iam still at work. To do s-off u need the rooted Rom and custom kernel, I tried it without and it's not working but if u have fully stock make a system dump to be safe. If u have s-off it doesn't matter if the boot loader is unlocked or locked. U just need it later if you have to sent it back to HTC. I will keep you guys updated with the upload. I will also upload a system dump of my currect 4.3 system. But u all need s-off.
