    Looks like Unrevoked is at it again, this time with a new S-On tool. It will probably be released within 24 hours, they are updating the website right now public:forever [RootWiki]

    Cool. Nothing but love for Unrevoked. That'll bring a few more holdouts into the mix too.

    So from what I've just read it allows you to turn S back on if you want to?

    They have nothing but respect from me for doing it, but I will completely pass on the option.

    Any chance this purposefully coincided with the latest HTC image that released on XDA last night?

    UnrEVOked team rocks. I'm glad I went ahead and did S-Off. I was a little nervous about the permanence of it all, but now that there's an S-On tool, there's no reason not to do Unrevoked forever.

    Yes. It's still the same Unrevoked Forever as before, but now it's reversible.

    Probably not, people have been holding out to get S-On, just in case.

    Can I ask why? I'm just curious

    Yeah, I waited it out, but as soon as I heard about this, I went and installed Forever.

    Has anyone looked into how it works? Does it just s-off if you are s-on, and s-on if you are s-off? Or does it have a separate file to flash? Or maybe a menu option?

    Under what circumstances would somebody want to use this? Just to revert phone back to stock and return for warranty or to flash anyy OTA if they really wanted?

    To use S-On? Return for warranty, and if they want to lose root when updating to an official OTA I guess :D

    ok...wanting to go back to S-ON after the 2.2 update. Went to recovery and tried to install the update.zip and it gave me the E: message....and it says on the Wiki page to stop if you see it.

    where do I go from here>?

    I think the S-ON tool was only purported to work with 2.1. Unrevoked hasn't released anything for stock froyo yet. If you had UnrF in 2.1 you keep it obviously but I haven't read about anyone being able to do what you're talking about.

    So if this is true it means our warranties aren't voided anymore if the proper steps are takin?

    Edit
    Never mind I see someone answered yes. Got lazy with reading

    Just did it and it worked perfect on a unrooted s-on 2.2 device.
