    Thanks to agentc13 for his excellent posts above to root the HTC One S (S3). I am immensely grateful.

    I am now for waiting for a stable JB release for htc One S (S3)
    In the meantime I see that HTC has released a new RUU for Asia.
    RUU_VILLEC2_U_ICS_40_hTC_Asia_WWE_1.11.707.112_Radio_16.12.20.02U_16.05.20.16_M2_release_264458_signed.exe 497435KB 87 2013-01-04 17:31:41

    I have a rooted S3 with the following settings:
    s-on
    Locale: en_HK
    Android Version: 4.0.3
    Bootloader: 2.09.0001
    Hardware: villec2
    Brand: htc_asia_hk
    Radio: unknown

    Would it be a good idea for me to install this RUU or will it be included in new ROMs?

    I understand that I have to lock the bootloader back up if I was to do this install. Is that right?

    Any advise would be appreciated.

    You CANNOT install that RUU as it's made for "Asia" devices only ! [and frequency bands]
    Try finding a RUU for your location !
    -get "CID GETTER" from Play store and try finding one that supports your CID.

    After finding one, you have to format the system/data/cache partitions and "erase data/factory reset" from recovery !
    Why all this ? >> it's a chance that the RUU will not install correctly if you do not do these steps !
