    Hello

    Sorry for posting a hopefully easy fix to the problem im having.

    I have just rooted my Desire using unrevoked 3.32 and everthing seems to have gone fine. Im now trying to get S-OFF and im having some problems.

    I have tried to flash the update.zip (which should be on the SD from the unrevoked root process, is that right?) which wont work and i have tried to download the latest unrevoked forever.zip file and put it on my SD card and flash from SD and im getting an unsupported system error and the installation is aborted.

    All i can find on forums is people suggesting to try the other method and ive tried both.

    Any suggestions?

    You have a CDMA (no SIM card) desire?

    unrevoked only s-off's CDMA desires, not GSM.

    If you know for sure you want S-off, you have to do this:

    be careful, dont interupt the process in any way. By interupt I mean remove power or cable
