Easy S-Off for Amaze, Vivid, Rezound, and MyTouch 4G Slide
Not too long ago, we brought you news of an all in one tool kit for a variety of devices that delivered permanent root, unlocked the bootloader, installed a custom recovery, and batched installed apk files. There was, however, one thing missing—S-Off. At the time of its release, S-Off was still a dream for many of these devices, but it has since become a reality. HTC Amaze 4G, Vivid, Rezound and MyTouch 4G Slide owners can now enjoy S-Off easily thanks to a new tool kit.
XDA Recognized Developer hasoon2000 has released another decent sized batch of tool kits for HTC devices with the sole purpose of obtaining S-Off easily on the aforementioned HTC devices. Of course, from there you can use the all-in-one tool kits for just about anything else. The tool kits are easy to use. Users simply open up the interface, and are given all the tools needed to make a successful hack. The features include:
– Links to a video and instructions to prepare you to S-Off your device
– HTC Drivers
– Command to flash an HBOOT of your choosing (Be sure you know what you are doing!)
– Command to flash a Recovery of your choosing
Of course, this is all based on the brilliance that is Juopunutbear, and all proper credit is given. Head over to the appropriate thread to get started:

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
