Default Unrevoked S-ON tool about to be released

Looks like Unrevoked is at it again, this time with a new S-On tool. It will probably be released within 24 hours, they are updating the website right now public:forever [RootWiki]

Cool. Nothing but love for Unrevoked. That'll bring a few more holdouts into the mix too.

So from what I've just read it allows you to turn S back on if you want to?

Any chance this purposefully coincided with the latest HTC image that released on XDA last night?

UnrEVOked team rocks. I'm glad I went ahead and did S-Off. I was a little nervous about the permanence of it all, but now that there's an S-On tool, there's no reason not to do Unrevoked forever.

Yes. It's still the same Unrevoked Forever as before, but now it's reversible.

Probably not, people have been holding out to get S-On, just in case.

Yeah, I waited it out, but as soon as I heard about this, I went and installed Forever.

Has anyone looked into how it works? Does it just s-off if you are s-on, and s-on if you are s-off? Or does it have a separate file to flash? Or maybe a menu option?

Under what circumstances would somebody want to use this? Just to revert phone back to stock and return for warranty or to flash anyy OTA if they really wanted?

To use S-On? Return for warranty, and if they want to lose root when updating to an official OTA I guess

I think the S-ON tool was only purported to work with 2.1. Unrevoked hasn't released anything for stock froyo yet. If you had UnrF in 2.1 you keep it obviously but I haven't read about anyone being able to do what you're talking about.

Just to clarify.. this is NOT unrevoked 3.2 and therefore doesn't help people with S-on and OTA 2.2, correct?

Edit: nevermind, found this unrEVOked 3.2; Root FroYo

Not directly (yet). You need to do the roundabout way that was mentioned previously. Essentially, revert to stock and use the existing Unrevoked tool for S-ON with 2.1. The flare up about "things working" is the next version of Unrevoked's tool coming out that will allow rooting and S-OFF on 2.2 (previously not possible). It could be that with the official release of Unrevoked 3.2 that S-OFF to S-ON functionality could be included. It might be worth waiting a couple of days to see. I would expect Unrevoked's 3.2 to be released at any time now.

ok I went back to stock 2.1 with my Dinc, now I just need to wait on the Unrevoked to come back out (again) and then I should be able to go to S-ON....I'm assuming I got that right.
