    Would anyone be willing to post a video for this? It seems like each individual person has a different experience with this process and some requiring special commands to get running. Its all making me a little nervous. Any suggestions?

    Of course!

    Remember, you're just wrapping it around on the end that you hold, so it won't affect the charge at all.

    Well that was fun. Officially s-off :D

    I recommend everyone do this. It was actually painlessly easy. Took a few tries but it finally went though. Feels good knowing my phone is completely unlocked.

    just make sure you are htc dev unlocked and rooted. also note the troubleshooting guide in case you feel like you are stuck. they are very helpful in #JuopunutBear on freenode.

    Thanks!
    Do you know how to check to make sure that you have the drivers installed correctly?
    Nevermind I solved it. :)

    And I'm S-OFF at about 15 tries! :'D

    Congrats. My only advice to anyone wanting to try us to watch the video posted a few posts up. They explain exactly what to do with the wire and how to check for drivers. That video made it easy

    Ok wish me luck. I'm about to do the SOff with a paper clip wrapped in scotch tape. So if this fails then I'm back to using my OV..

    EDIT I'm using this.[​IMG]

    I got to the wire trick step. The problem was the ROM I was trying to flash on. Was trying the stock shooter ROM, and I just tried it on the UltraMatrix ROM and it worked. Now I'm gonna do the wire trick.

    edit -

    Alright I'm actually S-OFF now.

    You could boot into recovery from the bootloader menu, with phone off, press power button+volume key down at the same time, then when you are already in bootloader, select recovery then power button, after that you should be in your recovery menu.

    Don't be vague. Explain exactly what it's happening and what you see. What you are pressing and when. Can you boot into the bootloader? What happens when you press those buttons while the phones off?

    my problem-The phone reboots only to the &#8220;arrow screen&#8221; but I&#8217;m still S-ON and I want to give up for now.See the Rom/Data recovery section below.

    my solution-ControlBear -r (This is run with the phone at the JuopunutBear/Arrow screen). If this succeeds recovery is complete otherwise continue to step 2.

    my other problem-idk how to make controlbear use the recovery option
