HTC Desire S is a nice piece of hardware. This Android phone has enticing qualities that have managed to hook many users. This device gained S-Off quite a while back, as described in our method to gain S-Off for Desire S. But the method described there requires you to have advanced knowledge and command over ADB. Luckily there is now a much simpler way to gain S-Off over your Desire S. You can use the hot-cake of the Android world these days to achieve this. We are talking of course about Revolutionary! The tool opens the doors to the rooting world for you, making everything almost as easy as a one-click tool.
Revolutionary is the new tool for HTC devices that lets you gain S-off without knowing too much about the technical details. However, before applying the instructions to your Desire S, be sure to read the disclaimer and the Revolutionary documentation.
