    Yes your phone needs to be connected to your PC.
    My guess is that you are using windows thus make sure you have the right files.
    You run controlbear.
    yes your phone needs to be connected through the process.

    The way I did it was to remove the battery case then have the phone plugged in and facing down my desk. The program [controlbear] is going to run through what it needs to run and then its going to tell you when to do the "wire-trick" , pay attention and be ready. it has taken us all a few tries as far as i know.
    If there is someone out there that can do this on the first attempt, I'll buy them a beer.

    I've gone through 4 different ROMS since becoming s-off lol. Being s-off opens up many more roms for our phones.

    However, you do have to be running a stock sense rom when you attempt the s-off. It could either be the stock rom or another sense ROM. I was running MidnightRom when I did the s-off.

    i meant rom, my bad. so midnightrom was installed first? did overclocking work in midnightrom before s-off? or does s-off necessary for OCing?

    OCing worked. There is no difference between a correctly installed midnight rom with s-on or s-off. Everything is fully functional.

    Ok I'm having problems with this also, my first attempt I got it to backup, etc, etc. Then it rebooted my phone the juopunutBear came up on my screen. Then it kept searching for device 3 times and wouldn't connect saying I'm to install drivers (i assume I had the drivers) so I downloaded the drivers there is no installation file in it what do i do? I try running it again its telling me install driver and press Enter to exit.

    The juopunutBear is now always on my screen even after I reboot the phone. How do I restore the backup?
