    I have a Sensation 4g that came as stock 2.3.4 GB then i upgraded to 4.0.3 ICS. It is now rooted and UNLOCKED and running hboot 1.27 S-ON.
    I'm using 4exe Recovery

    I would like to gain S-OFF.

    Others have said to install stock GB Rom but i cant locate it online. id prefer to do it that way but open to all suggestions.

    My pc came stock with windows vista but has Windows 8 Pro 32bit x86 installed w/o Windows Media Center (
    2gb RAM
    1 TB HD
    if any of that helps.

    I also need help to get my HTC Sensation 4G S-OFF. It is UNLOCKET with help from htcdev.com.
    But i have not rooted it yet.

    Should i root it before i do S-OFF?

    And someone who know a way to get it S-OFF? I found something here: http://androidforums.com/threads/s-off-for-hboot-1-27-basic-info-back-to-stock.619240/
    But the "Unlimited.IO" seems to be obsolete för Windows? http://unlimited.io/ and here: http://unlimited.io/jb_pyramidlocked.htm

    Hmm, is the last way to get S-OFF by using Ubuntu Linux maybe?

    that is correct,windows is no longer an option for jpbear. its easy to create an ubuntu bootable cd,and i actually would recomend linux no matter what tool you use,as windows is not as fast and relies on finicky,unreliable drivers.

    another option wich will not require the "wire trick" would be rumrunner s off. youll need to either install superuser,and an insecure kernel,or install a rooted,stock rom wich contains an insecure kernel. the sensation made it to ICS,so rumrunner should prolly do the trick.



    according to http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2751187 it should work with viper rom: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2531054

    remember,while youre s on,youll need to fastboot flash the kernel after installing the rom.

    holler if you have any further questions :)
