A few days ago, XDA member MohamedYousri told us about the latest achievement by the alliance between AlphaRevX & Unrevoked. This tool, called Revolutionary, is the first major collaboration between two development groups. The term revolutionary was due because of some of the mechanisms by which we gain S-OFF. This new tool allows S-Off and NAND write access to a whole slew of modern HTC phones:
Revolutionary currently supports the following Android phones and HBOOT versions:
HTC Desire (bravo) 0.93.0001
HTC Desire CDMA (bravoc) 1.06.0000
HTC Wildfire (buzz) 1.01.0001
HTC Aria (liberty) 1.02.0000
HTC Incredible S (vivo) 1.09.0000 and 1.13.0000
HTC Droid Incredible 2 (vivow) 0.97.0000
HTC Desire S (saga) 0.98.0000 and 0.98.0002
HTC View (express) 1.09.0000 and 1.13.0000
HTC Flyer (flyer) 1.10.0000
HTC Sensation (pyramid) 1.17.0006, .0008, .0011 and .0012
HTC Evo 3D (shooter) 1.30.0000 and 1.40.0000
Revolutionary will permanently unlock NAND write protection by default on the following phones:
HTC Sensation (pyramid)
HTC Evo 3D (shooter)
So, to all the devs out there: get ready to have some fun!
Please share your experiences with the tool.

Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool
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.
Let’s get started!
