    -------------------------

    This tool will give you permanent nand unlock while booted into the os as well as S-OFF security for the ability to flash unsigned zip's from hboot. With this you can flash any OTA and still be able to recover root by flashing a recovery and a root package. Please read our site for details and instructions and the download!


    Target platforms: HTC Evo and HTC Incredible

    Short answer: Everything!

    Longer answer: We currently only have access to write to system while in recovery. A full unlock would allow for an easier way to write to the system. This could be hazardous, so people should be careful when doing this. There is a reason why these devices are locked down in such a way.

    Epic. Maybe a new radio version AND s-off in the same day? that would be sick.

    What we have now, think of as installing a custom version of Windows on a PC.

    The SPL is like the BIOS. Right now, it's locked down. Once we have access to the SPL, we can do anything and not lock down /system, giving us complete 100% control over our phones.

    it means the phone will finally be truly unlocked. things will actually be doable with the phone booted up. and radios i guess will be flashable.
