While this process shouldn’t be too risky, bricks can happen. None of us will be accountable. If you are worried, don’t do it.

This is a pretty simple method, however, you will need to have a working adb and fastboot environment. This method will work on any operating system that supports adb and fastboot. You should understand how to use a terminal window in your O/S. If you don’t understand adb and fastboot, you probably don’t need S-off.

Lastly, the work herein should not be stolen, repackaged, one clicked, bat’d, etc. soffbin3 is not GPL and may not be reused, integrated into other work, reposted, or redistributed without our permission.

For this to work, you must be rooted and have superCID (unlock/custom recovery is optional), see the threads below for help and information regarding obtaining superCID, unlock, root, etc. Note these threads are provided for convenience only. Please look for support for them in each respective thread if you need it, do NOT clutter this thread with support requests regarding obtaining superCID and/or root! If you try this process without superCID, it will not work, and you may have issues!:

HTC DNA: http://forum.xda-dev....php?p=36976137

Note: This is for DNA users who have successfully achieved superCID. If you have accepted the OTA without getting superCID FIRST, you’ll need to wait a little while longer, we have something in the works for you.....

HTC One XL: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1952038 (2.2)
HTC OneS: http://forum.xda-dev...hlight=supercid

Once you have confirmed you have SuperCID, get started (read it through first so you understand it all):

1.) Download patcher and unzip it in your working directory:
soffbin3.zip http://d-h.st/74S = MD5: 5a3b9e42597d36d57a598083a4c4c244, Mirror http://goo.im/devs/d...ff/soffbin3.zip

2.) Find model id (open a terminal window or command prompt and leave open for further commands):

adb shell getprop ro.aa.modelid

3.) Download zip that matches your model id and move it in your working directory (do not unzip it!):

OneX.zip http://d-h.st/H6u = MD5: 99a8eced1010543e12cbd4e4e8f9638f, Mirror http://goo.im/devs/d...312000-OneX.zip
PL8320000-DNA.zip http://d-h.st/nOo = MD5: 8fa1cf193559d34279d2b1c1aa8c29, Mirror http://goo.im/devs/d...8320000-DNA.zip
OneS PJ4010000-OneS.zip http://d-h.st/sE6 Mirror http://goo.im/devs/d...010000-OneS.zip

adb reboot bootloader
(wait for bootloader)

fastboot oem rebootRUU
(wait for black HTC Screen)

fastboot flash zip <appropriate zip filename from above>
After a while, You should see the following error “FAILED (remote: 92 supercid! please flush image again immediately)”

7.) Immediately issue the following command:

fastboot oem boot

You may see some errors, just wait for the device to boot into Android (only now, you should be booted into Android with no eMMC write protection of any kind active).

8.) Issue the following 3 commands to update the security partition with S-off flags (one command at a time!):

adb push soffbin3 /data/local/tmp/
adb shell chmod 744 /data/local/tmp/soffbin3
adb shell su -c "/data/local/tmp/soffbin3"

(wait for a few seconds)

adb reboot bootloader

10.) You should see what you are looking for!

Crap, I did the OTA upgrade already. That's for your work and home play the new superceded can get to working with the new update.

my CID shows 111111111 but i believe that I was able to complete the S-OFF process. however at the end of step 8's third line of code my command prompt window stays stuck on the command and displays "ViperDNA@/#" what does that mean?

I did the OTA and wanted s-off, so I downloaded the supercid, and got 1's (instead of 2's as the directions state). I followed the directions above and did not receive s-off as was said would happen. I then flashed Stop/Remove Verizon OTA V2 2.04.605.2 710RD found here: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=2149417 and tried again and got s-off. NOTE: I was also unlocked, rooted and had the stock 2.04.605.2 71ORD rom on my phone when I did this. I am not sure if this helps or not, but it worked for me.

Noob question. Will this factory reset if I am already rooted?
