It looks as if the mighty has fallen yet once again. This is something that has been expected for a while but it seems that we may be just days away from a full S-OFF on the Sensation’s hboot. Yes, you read correctly, the once deemed uncrackable security measure imposed by HTC on the new device line up has been cracked, and just a few days after temp root was achieved. This means that not only will you be able to get rid of bloat on your device, but you will also be able to flash custom roms and kernels. XDA member vladnosferatu shared with us earlier today a youtube video where AlphaRevX is used to achieve the awaited S-OFF on a Pyramid. These are indeed fantastic news and as it is customary for our friends at ARX, they will hold off on the release of this until the utility has been proven to be safe. As this will modify your device (breaking your warranty in the process), the devs simply need to ensure that the process is safe for mass consumption. So, please refrain from asking for ETA and patiently wait for the goodies to come, which they will.
The moment we have more information regarding this, we will certainly update you about it.
AlphaRevX – HTC Sensation (Pyramid) HBOOT 1.17.0011 S-OFF [COMING SOON]
