Notsure S-OFF Trouble

I have been stuck with using Gingerbread ROMs because I need S-OFF to get ICS. I have tried to do the wire trick, but the program Controlbear keeps telling me to install drivers. I have no clue what it is talking about. A couple of times, it has gotten past that and said it failed to do a backup. Again, I have no clue what to do. Please help If you can.

I've never tried to s off and I'm on ics but my only guess you don't have HTC drivers installed

How did you install ICS? As in, what recovery did you use?

GO to HTC"s website .
Drivers are there. Install them on your Computer - not your phone.

I too, am running ICS (d3rp) and S-ON. I just used jerofld's guide and had no problem. Since you're already rooted, I've read 4EXT recovery works for most with S-ON, but I haven't gotten quite that far yet.

You're doing something wrong because I'm s-on 1.5 and I've run gingerbread, ICS, and jelly bean; and they all work.
