    Your custom rom data won't be able to mix s-on and s-off

    no that is not an issue you as long as your are unlocked and have a custom recovery all is good.

    now getting s-off is different depending on the firmware the phone is currently on. if you are on the most current firmware then the only way to root the phone is by using rumrunner.

    there is no other way.

    That's what I've been doing for the longest ... I think I just have to get a different phone. I never had this much difficulties rooting any other device.

    Someone needs to make a app that you can s-off when or if rooted with a custom ROM.

    I'm fresh out of trying anything to get s-off, so I went ahead and got me a red HTC one. :)

    Nonetheless, I will continue on said path to achieve s-off.

    After following the steps (firewater) to get s-off, which I was successful in getting the device (Evo 4g LTE) unlocked using this method.

    Is it this phone ...or just .... :)
