Unlimited.IO Does It Again, LazyPanda S-Off for EVO 4G LTE
Some time ago, we brought you news of JoupunutBear S-Off on HTC devices. As newer devices are released, one always wonders if previous tools will be updated to add support. HTC EVO 4G LTE users can relax now, as Unlimited.IO now has a tool for you.
The EVO LTE now has LazyPanda, which is Unlimited.IO’s second release. Posted to XDA by XDA Recognized Developer Fuses, users are linked to the Juopunutbear / LazyPanda website where they can download the tools and view the instructions. Even though HTCDev Unlock gives users permission to flash a variety of development work, S-Off is still quite important.
The process is surprisingly simple for the end user. Most current S-Off methods require Test Point wire touching or other hardware modifications. Not so with LazyPanda. Users root their devices, get the HTC drivers, ensure that HTC Sync is uninstalled (Windows only), and run the FeedPanda executable. For Linux users it’s even easier. Just download and run the application. By the end, you will have achieved S-Off. With it being easy and simple, it just doesn’t get any better for an S-Off method.
