    I flashed the Hamronia ROm last night...Had some trouble with rooting but it was mainly because i didn't read properly.

    I like the rom but i want to try and S-off(i am nervous...last night was my first time rooting) and this is will be my first time using s-off.
    I want to turn my EVO V into a EVo 3D

    1. How do I go back to the stock version of my phone(how it was out of the box)

    2. Is there any other method to do besides that wire trick for S-off?

    3. LOL if i don't have a wire is there anything else i can use :p

    4. Any youtube videos out there showing how to do this method? :D

    I'd really like to try this tonight if possible. How long does it take to S-off?

    3. Paperclip. Just use tape or something where you'll hold it to ground yourself
    4. Probably

    I would also suggest reading through the instructions fully on the unlimited.io site before starting and make sure you download the correct juopunutbear software for your device. It really isn't as difficult as it sounds initially but my best advice is to not rush through things. Read, make sure you understand and feel comfortable and then try. Ask questions before starting if you have them. Also I would backup your sd card before doing it or use a spare. It can wipe your card. Mine didn't but it's possible!

    Good luck!! :D

    I would definitely use a spare card if available because the only thing that I've ever seen happen while doing the wire trick that's not correctable is that in a very few occasions your card can get wiped. I actually did it to a friends phone who has absolutely no tools in his house by using the twist tie from a package of hotdog buns.
