    Thanks to Globatron

    Version 0.5 supports evo 3d cdma (shooter)
    It gives hboot 1.5 radio S-off, so no downgrading to 1.4 involved​


    Note for Sensation and MT4GS

    While it is possible to gain S-OFF on using any current version of android on the HTC Sensation and MT4GS, we encourage you to use the revolutionary tool if your device is on a supported hboot. The revolutionary tool is a simpler process for the end user than JuopunutBear.​

    In order to use JuopunutBear you must meet the following pre-requisites:​

    • Be unlocked using the HTCdev bootloader unlock
    • Be on the stock ROM and be rooted (have superuser and/or an unsecured boot image installed)
      • Some custom ROMs may work, however we cannot verify them all. If you are not using a stock ROM and have problems then this is most likely the reason.
    • Have a spare microSD card or to have backed up all contents of your SDcard, the card may be wiped, while we try to restore the card to it’s original state is is possible that this will not succeed
    • Have fastboot and adb drivers installed and working (windows)
    • Have usb debugging enabled
    • Remove and potentially interfering phone software which such as HTC sync, Andro sync, PDAnet etc, iTunes has also been noted to cause issues.
    • Have a legth of insulated wire of sufficient length to join the contact points for your device. See images and videos for device specific information.

    1. (Optional) Perform a full backup and replace your sdcard with one that you are willing to wipe.
    2. Ensure that your battery is fully charged.
    3. Choose the correct download for your device and operating system
    4. Extract the zip file to a new directory
    5. Verify the MD5 checksum for your download
    6. Read and/or watch the video for the device specific information for your device
    7. Run controlbear as admin(windows) or root or using sudo on linux
    8. Follow the on-screen instructions from ControlBear
    9. Do not press any of the buttons on the phone during the process.
    10. After doing the “wire-trick” your phone will reboot. The sequence of the reboot may vary somewhat from that you see in the videos as these were taken during various stages of development.
    11. If you see the following message from ControlBear after doing the wire trick:
      • ErrorMsg: Still sober.
      • This means that you have been unsuccessful in implementing the wire-trick. Run ControlBear again.
      • The usual cause for this is that you failed to perform 2 clean contacts or mis-timed the wire trick.
    Your phone will reboot several times during the process, this is normal. ControlBear will tell you when it has finished whether successfully or not.

    I just completed the downgrade to HBOOT 1.4 S-OFF, (what a PITA the bricking was), now this comes out. Guess I should have been more patient. :rolleyes:

    Given the choice between 1.4 and 1.5 S-OFF, I would still choose the 1.4, if just to avoid HTC Dev :p

    Works got s-off on 1.5 although it was very tricky. Still downgraded to 1.4 afterwards. Prefer the security knowing 1.4 as opposed to the "possibles' of 1.5

    I agree, there seems to be fewer issues with new ROMs with HBOOT 1.4 S-OFF than with Unlocked HBOOT 1.5.

    Those who downgraded to 1.4 after S-OFF'ing 1.5 did use the S-OFF HBOOT only file to do it, right? And not the temp-brick method?

    I used the temp brick method after I turn s-off to s-on via "fastboot OEM writesecureflag 3" then removed my recovery then relockes the bootloader and worked like a charm

    Juopunutbear will not reboot my device!

    Curious... Once you have S-OFF via this "wire trick" method, can you flash the ENG HBOOT and be truly free?

    I was able to get S-OFF, but I also have the Juopunutbear HBOOT. Is it possible to go back to the unlocked HBOOT 1.50 I had before? Thanks for any help.

    I would post that question in the OP post at XDA, I don't think he comes here that often

    No problem. I am actually conversing with one of the XDA members right now on the subject. I will most likely just stay with what I've got and then once the official ICS comes out figure out what to do when the devs post a rom that will work for those of us that have used this S-OFF method. I kind of want to stay close to stock if I can.

    FYI many are able to flash the ICS releases using 4EXT recovery

    So I just got S-OFF. But now it says my bootloader is *** LOCKED***. Do I need to use HTCdev to re-unlock that?

    Edit: It is telling me I need to activate my phone too?

    No once you have s-off you don't need to unlock the bootloader again, however if you want to you don't have to deal with htcdev at all. The unlock file is tied to your phone, just run fastboot and push the token over again.

    Why the Control Bear says that i don't have root access? I am unlocked, and have superuser installed.

    Ok, it's the superuser issue. Had to change to older version of superuser.
    S-off now..!!!

    Sorry for the noob question, but I might be overlooking the answer. I thought read that in order to perform this process, you needed to be on the stock ROM. I'm rooted and using MEANRom ICS 2.4. Will performing the process work now, or do I have to flash the stock ROM back onto the phone? I just want to be sure I don't mess up my phone. Rooting was a complete success to begin with, I'd hate to go and screw up the 3VO now.
