Sometimes, obtaining root can be a difficult process. As many devices have one-click methods or otherwise easy to follow instructions, others still must do it the old fashioned way. This is especially true for HTC phones obtaining S-Off. In some cases, it has become required to literally brick your device to get it downgraded to obtain S-Off. With the instructions getting more convoluted all the time, it’s very helpful and efficient when someone takes the time to put it all in one place.
As is expected when multiple processes are combined into a single thread, the whole process will take some times. Users must first figure out which part they need to start with. From there, it’s simply following the steps. As stated, the process is a little long and users can expect to follow anywhere from 22 to 33—a few taking up to 10 minutes to complete—to obtain full root and S-Off so patience is definitely a prerequisite. Aside from that, the process isn’t overly complicated so users looking to get their Incredible S fully unlocked shouldn’t have too much trouble.
