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.
