I present, the simonsimons34 Wildfire S tool.



Unlock without voiding your warranty

Note requires hboot to first say locked

The biggest thing this tool can do is UNLOCK your hboot WITHOUT ever needing to wipe your data, go to HTCdev.com or voiding your warranty. Unlike S-off we can reverse this too. Simpily let us Unlock your phone for you, and flash roms and recoveries as you wish. Just like S-Off. This will also help you get S-Off with the utility from the general section. The only thing you NEED is a proper Unlockable bootloader, and the recovery that came with the phone. If you need this tool, you already have stock recovery. So nothing besides a HTC unlockable bootloader is required. Everything else is in the package.


Universal to HTC Devices

Dont let the name fool you, though. This will work on ANY HTC unlockable phone. The other tools besides unlocking will only work for the Wildfire S CDMA, as of know however.


Sorry, It is a beta.

Being as this is still in beta, there will most likely be bugs. Things that dont work. Please report them here with a screenshot and or the exact copy of what it said. For now this is a self extracting exe, so place in a folder of your choice, thats empty preferably, and open it up. The bat file will automatically be opened. There is a good side to betas though. Improvement! Soon after we confirm it works, I will be moving to a GUI app to make everything even easier.

Note: may be picked up by some AV programs, because they arn't signed. All it is is a self extracting bin with auto open of the batch file.

Already unlocked, but hopefully this will come in handy if I get another HTC. I'll let you how it works. This is just what I needed thanks.


P.S. great idea

Little Question: How to get the Stock Recovery without downloading a RUU?
Filefactory all Slots full for about a hour...

Can someone extract the Stock Recovery.img or give me some adwise?

Simon, you might want to add prerequirements like having the android-sdk, fastboot, etc...

Also, inform users what state the phone should be in. (Recovery, in ROM+USB Debug, Fastboot, etc...)

Just an idea. :)

Have confirmation from two different people that this works. Both people were unlocked previously (before this util was invented, and recommended by me to use) through HTCDev.

User 1: used this tool to successfully install ClockWork Mod.

User 2: used this tool to S-OFF MetroPCS hboot 1.10.0000 and install CWM.

Major thanks for this Simon. Glad to have helped and been a part of this amazing utility!

..any chances that you realease the source codes on your github?
Or describe pls how this stuff works.

Don't want to talk your work bad. But we all have to ensure that it wont brick our devices.
And one confirmation,that its working is too less.

Maybe also a video could help to convince us from your work.

I will eventually. Right now there's nothing to build on though. It works with every phone. This weekend (school takes major time) I will release partial code enough to see what it does but only the code of the batch file (it does all the work.) Give me a few days. Eventually will be GUI And shell on Linux

Theoretically, this should work on ANY HTC phone, not just the Wildfire S. (Unlocking, anyway)

Guys, you want the code? Run the EXE and find it in your temp folders. All the .bat files will be in there. There's your code. ;)

---------- Post added at 01:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:22 PM ----------

Also, should you guys that are already "unlocked" and want to try this out, use "TheQ"s bootloader relocker. It works to relock your bootloader.

Then use this to unlock it.

I've done it. Both work great.

Simon, is this the "universal"? If not, is the other one you linked me to universal? (No, it claims CDMA only too.)

Also, CM7 built in 15 minutes lol. No compile errors, but I haven't flashed it yet through fastboot. Doing the VM hboot test in about 20 min.

ok thanks, this may be useful for our unbricking project on sensation.

so just to make sure i got it right, this performs S-off and unlocks HBOOT?
thanks

Yes, but as far as I know it only works on CDMA HTC devices for now. Don't quote me on that.

---------- Post added at 02:32 PM ---------- Previous post was at 02:18 PM ----------

VM Hboot didn't work. Flashed ok, but phone rebooted to black (backlit) screen and wont go any further. Attempting to boot into hboot caused a bootloop.


Looks like I'm heading to the MetroPCS store lol.

Will unlock, S-OFF, and install CWM with this utility and let you all know how it goes with a totally stock Marvelc Wildfire S.



Edit:

To clarify, UNLOCK should work on ANY HTC device. S-OFF is ONLY working on CDMA for now.

Do you think this will work on EVO 3D. I've been reading that you have to downgrade hboot to 1.4 from 1.5. Anyone try this ?

    Hey guys,

    simonsimons34 has kinda moved on from the WFS community, but I have been given permission to speak officially for him on this project.

    This project tested on the HTC Wildfire S only (specifically, the marvelc). It should unlock any bootloader of any supported HTC device; however, all other features are marvelc specific.

    This should give you S-OFF (marvelc ONLY), but it's been so long since I've used it that I'm not sure anymore.

    The download link is no longer active.
    In order to download this for Windows, please go to SimonSickle/htc_utility_windows on GitHub and click "Download ZIP" on the right side of the page.
    In order to download this for Linux (and possibly, but not likely, OS X), please go to SimonSickle/htc_utility_linux on GitHub and click "Download ZIP" on the right side of the page.
