Default [info/FAQ] root and s-off MT4GS,all hboots!

this is not so much a guide,but rather a collection of info for the most current and up to date methods of rooting and obtaining s-off. i hope to emliminate some confusion with this thread.

any questions,comments or concerns feel free to start a thread here in the ATR section,and we will be happy to help you.

*first and foremost,if you happen to aquire a MT4GS thats still on hboot 1.44.0007 because its been powered off or used in a cave for the last year,stop and rejoice. download and run Revolutionary immediately. the revolutionary tool is extremely easy,does not require any pre-rooting or prep,just read their FAQ,download and run it. it will give you permanent nand-unlock(radio s-off) leaving you free to accept OTAs or run an ruu afterward,and easily be able to install recovery and root at any time.


*if you find your MT4GS to be on hboot 1.45.0013,s off is still possible. just gonna be a lil more work. the 1.45.0013 method will work on 1.44.0007 as well,but revolutionary is a simpler tool to use. whatever option you choose is ultimately up to you. the "wire trick" used by the juopunut bear tool looks a bit intimidating,but really isnt that bad.

__________________________________________________ __________________________________
the 1.45.0013 method:
1)unlock,install recovery and superuser by using htcdev
[guide] unlock with htcdev,install recovery,and root

2)run juopunuts bears radio s-off tool

ACTUALLY...
this isnt as big a deal as it used to be. if you do want to unlock,you can change the lock status flag with this thread: [how to]reset your lock status flag

Default back to s-on

*please note that this is only intended for warranty purposes. there are NO benefits of s-on,whatsoever. you can recieve OTAs,you can unroot,etc. while -off. staying s-off also offers greater flexibility for recovering soft bricked devices(even devices that may have been hard bricked with s-on),and it also ensures youll be able to easliy re-root in the future,despite exploit patches.

if youre doing it to sell the device,dont. 9 out of 10 uses wont even realize its there. it wont hurt phone function,and the 1 out of 10 that know what s-off means,will prolly be really excited to find it

__________________________________________________ __________________________________

WARNING!!!
DO NOT turn your secureflag on unless on a stock,signed hboot.

s-on with an eng signed or patched hboot will hard brick your device immediately.
(read: permanently bricked,unrecoverable)


in other words,ONLY use the writesecureflag 3 command AFTER running an RUU. never before.

how to turn s-on:





*verified working if you need it for warranty.
