    scotty85 Guides Guide

    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.

    im sure were mostly to excited to want to go back to s on just yet,since we just got s-off :eek: but its a matter of time before this comes up,so here ya go:

    -that you know your stock CID and build number(x.xx.xxx.x for example, xxx=531= tmobile, xxx=401= htc europe)

    if you have a relocked bootloader,and want to reset the lock status to read locked,reference this thread: http://androidforums.com/internatio...t/732395-how-reset-your-lock-status-flag.html

    if needed,flash "lock_bootloader.zip" in clockwork recovery,then procede to the following steps.

    1)restore your mid,if you changed that.
    2)donwload and run an RUU for your most current STOCK carrier/reigonal build
    3)open a cmd window. plug in phone,charge only mode,usb debugging on.
    4)run the following:

    adb devices

    adb reboot bootloader

    fastboot devices

    fastboot oem writecid xxxxxxxx (where xxxxxxxx is your stock CID. example: HTC__001 or T-MOB010)

    fastboot reboot-bootloader

    fastboot getvar cid (verify your stock CID)

    fastboot oem writesecureflag 3

    fastboot reboot-bootloader

    *verify you are locked s-on

    fastboot reboot

    think twice about attempting to turn s on on a vzw device whose bootloader is nto officially unlockable. you may end up locked into bootloader with security warning that you cannot recovery from without an official signed ruu.

    for reference:
