    Hi,
    noob to rooting but getting ready to flash my dog slow Vodafone ICS...

    Will the latest version of Revolutionary S-OFF work with ICS?

    I read that it didn't used to and can't find any info that says it will work for sure :thinking:

    No it doesn't, but you can still use the HTC Dev unlocking process to tide you over.

    Sorry to bug you again but does the HTC Dev process get S-OFF?

    No, just unlocks the bootloader.

    So you can still flash stuff, but not change CID (and some other stuff I suspect).

    Ok, would that explain when I tried to install ClockworkMod Recovery, (Bootloader says unlocked) but PG58IMG.zip says parsing file, then 'no image or wrong image' ? :thinking:

    Instead of using the PB58IMG, just extract the .img file from the zip and use fastboot. That will work (cos I did it yesterday) and it's quicker all round anyway :D

    Nope, its not having it....in bootloader mode it starts to read the files then just stops, doesn't get as far as asking me if I want to update.

    What am I doing wrong?

    You're doing fastboot wrong by the sounds of it ;)

    You don't put the .img file on your SD card, you flash it via your PC with the fastboot command, like so:

    fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.0.9-pyramid.img

    You'll see a progress bar (very breifly) on your phones fastboot screen, then you're done.

    I'm a trier :p

    I was following this XDA guide:

    But I'll try the fastboot CLI method you suggested now ;)

    Rusty you are a star (and very patient :p), got a backup running now prior to permanently rooting with su-2.3.6.3-ef-signed.zip

    I have a stock Vodafone ICS ROM currently that I got as an OTA to the stock Vodafone Gingerbread that the phone came with, would you recommend i do a 'wipe cache partition' or 'wipe data/reset' before going for a custom ROM?

    (I'm intend to put on Virtuous Inquisition v4.0.1)

    That guide is right for the PG58IMG.zip method, but since that doesn't work, it's CLI time :D

    Just wipe data/factory reset will be fine, cache clears itself when you change ROMs.
