  3. Once done, connect your tab to the computer, enable USB debugging. You can enable USB debugging by launching Settings > Applications > Development > Enable USB Debugging.
  4. After this head to the Revolutionary.IO portal, read through the documentation, and click on “Download For Windows”.
  5. The download will start immediately and a form with different fields will open.
  6. Do not close the webpage and wait for the download to complete.
  7. After the download is complete, extract the archive and double click on Revolutionary.exe.
  8. Now you will get a serial number which needs to be entered in the web form along with other device specs required. You will then be given a beta key which you need to copy.

    I achieved s=off but never was asked to install a custom rom of any kind, also insteed of saying “sucess” it said “Failed” but when I go into bootloader it does say S=OFF, no apps that need it will recognize the tablet as rooted, I installed busybox, and it said to flash a zip file stayting with SU(something).zip, I also have rom manager. I know I am a noob, but I need to start some where, Thank You in advance, Mike

    S-OFF’d my HTC and rooted it with no issues. I’m now using it as a phone as well and I have to say its great. Yes you need a BT headset or use the wired on that comes in the box. Bizzare that I noticed the out the box handsfree has a microphone on it. Strange in that you out the box cannot make calls!

  • Michael H

    Any ideas on how to fix the call history? The people app throws and error and requires a force close when looking at the call history. A tad annoying

      Re the call history issue. Resolved 🙂
