    Just got released like 15 minutes ago. Anyone try it yet!?

    public:forever [RootWiki]

    unrevoked forever is a tool to set your Android phone's security level to S-OFF. The security level is a flag stored on the radio; when the flag is S-OFF, the bootloader (HBOOT) will no longer check the signatures of firmware images before flashing them. This allows custom firmware images to be uploaded, including unsigned boot, recovery, splash1, and hboot images (as well as official images that have been modified).

    Yeah, it's looking good. Figured it'd be solid if they made the leap to realease. That said tho, I'm in no mood to resurrect my Curve. Lol.

    hahah I know, I'm lurking on XDA. I'm more active on this forum however so I thought I would share here!

    Probably going to flash this tomorrow. It's been pretty crazy these past few days between the new Kernel source and s-off. Lots of new stuff for us to enjoy :)

    Allow me to play devil's advocate for just a moment...there is no way to revert back to S-On. If I need to 86 this phone for some reason, I can currently revert back to stock configuration. No can do once I make this leap. Can somebody sell me on the fact that the benefits of unlock outweigh the ability to go backward?

    I believe you can go back. I read something about just making it go to S-ON. Since S-off just means that the security is turned off, there has to be a way to turn it back on. Don't quote me, but I'm pretty sure that it's possible to go back

    EDIT: Totally kidding about that. It says they have not developed a tool for that yet.

    You have to rename it to update.zip right?

    I'm guessing it replaces the HTC splash screen with the UnrEVOked logo.
