Default Revolutionary = S-Off

I haven't tried to yet but it looks like we can now unlock our bootloaders. Go to phandroid news.

Or go straight to it: http://revolutionary.io/

Happy S-OFF and ROOTED!!!!!!!!!!

Using the method developed by unrEVOked and AlphaRev (they call it REVOLUTIONARY) I have rooted my Sensation 4G. Here is the XDA page on how to get S-OFF and Root the phone. It was relatively easy to do.

[Guide]Guide to S-off, Installing ClockWorkMod, Permanent Root & Flashing (noobproof) - xda-developers

I have Superuser, BusyBox and Titanium BackUp up and running with no problems.

Are we talking only on until the next re-boot or fully unlocked no problems with custom ROMs unlocked?

I'm fully rooted. I am running Android Revolution HD. And can do everything root. I don't loose it on reboot. Head over to XDA.

With S-OFF the only thing to do now is flash a rom. Don't be scared. You can use Titanium so you do not lose a thing. Just experiment.

P.S.
Be wary which ClockWorkMod you install and use. There are charging problems afoot. Either get CWM 5.0.2.0 and flash it from the bootloader or use Rom Manager to update from there. Good luck!

I try doing this, but when I enter the BETA key I keep getting the error message "invalid key aborting". I've tried numerous times and am entering using caps where there should be. Any ideas?

The new way is to do it through HTCDev try it through there and let me know how it goes.

I know this is an old post but figured if someone else looks or needs it. If you have trouble with entering beta key copy and paste. This method has worked for me on many EVO 3ds and 4g. Imo do what ever it takes to get this method to.work. why? Since it can be reversed and no watermark on your phone if you need to warranty.
