Revolutionary Gains S-OFF On HTC Sensation, Flyer, EVO 3D And View


Finally the Revolutionary Bootloader unlock solution direct from Revoked and Alphrev is out! And yes, it supports all previous devices along with S-OFF solutions for HTC View, Flyer, Sensation and EVO 3D. This is awesome! and we are as excited as you are to get our HTC Android devices free from the shackles of signed bootloaders and get as many custom ROMs, mods and hacks on board as possible.

This is what Revoked and Alpharev have to say about this Revolutionary Utility release:

At last, the time has come — unrevoked and AlphaRev have come together to join our strengths and build an S-OFF tool for the next wave of phones. We’re very excited about this, and we hope that you will be too! We’ve been working on this for a while, and we’d like you, our fellow developers, to get early access, so you can build awesome applications and amazing ROMs for everyone to use. So, today, we’re releasing for you a developer preview of something that we call Revolutionary.

Revolutionary? Why the name? Well, this tool is revolutionary in a couple of ways. It’s the first major collaboration between two development groups that we know of — and in honesty, we’ve stood on the shoulders of other giants, too, in building this! It’s revolutionary in some of the mechanisms by which we gain S-OFF; we have worked quite a while to build this, and we think that we’ve come up with a robust solution. And, we’d like to think of it not just as a revolutionary tool, but as a revolutionary itself! Over the past few months, our community has successfully convinced HTC and other vendors of the need to provide unlocked bootloaders for their phones. As we build this tool out to work with the unlocked updates, we’re excited about the next wave of innovation that this tool can help spark.

And here is a list of all devices that can get S-OFF with Visionary Utility:

  1. HTC Desire (bravo) 0.93.0001

  2. HTC Desire CDMA (bravoc) 1.06.0000

  3. HTC Wildfire (buzz) 1.01.0001

  4. HTC Aria (liberty) 1.02.0000

  5. HTC Incredible S (vivo) 1.09.0000 and 1.13.0000

According to Unrevoked Wiki, Revolutionary will permanently unlock nand protection by default on HTC Sensation and EVO 3D.  In order to S-OFF your device, you will need to download Windows / Linux build from Revolutionary.IO, execute Revolutionary.exe and then follow onscreen instructions to detail. This will give you only S-OFF and recovery but not root. For rooting, you will need to flash this zip file via recovery. You can head to the Revolutionary Home Page for more details and complete support. We will be posting complete how-to guides for new supported devices in a matter of hours.
