Gain S-Off On HTC Droid Incredible 2 With Revolutionary [How To]

htc-droid-incredible-ofc-2Earlier when AlphaRevX was released allowing you to gain S-Off on quite a handful of HTC Android devices, HTC users could not have been more happier to see a one click S-Off solution for their devices. Recently developers of Unrevoked and AlphaRev have teamed up to release the Revolutionary tool, which is in fact quite revolutionary, bringing about S-Off for even the latest HTC devices, including tablets. The Incredible 2 has not been around for long, and if you just became an owner of one these devices, you could easily gain S-Off on it via Revolutionary.

The tool is quite similar in function to AlphaRevX and also installs ClockworkMod recovery on your device. To use this tool you need to be running the 0.97.0000 version of HBOOT. So here’s how you can gain S-Off on your Incredible 2.
