    Has anyone tried the new bootloader unlock from HTC now that it's available for our 3D?

    Are you s-off or were you before doing it? I've read people are having a hard time putting custom recoveries on. I'd be interested in more details .

    That's just silly to say they stole revolutionary's tool. HTC has makes the software and hardware. They don't need to find holes to exploit when they have the source.

    So, I've unlocked the bootloader, and download the 384MB image that roots this. How do I flash this and get root, while keeping everything?

    Is there a way to get this stupid update notification off of my phone? I am terrified I might accidentally tap it.

    Has anyone tried this that already has S-OFF? I had S-OFF already (without root) and updated fine. When I boot to recovery it still shows S-OFF but now has a big *** LOCKED *** at the top of the recovery screen.

    Do you mean you too the OTA update with S-OFF and no root? If so, you can try to just go through the steps at htcdev.com to unlock. I don't think it would put you back to S-ON if the update didn't.

    So if I took the last ota I screwed and can't use revolutionary? Or just patiently wait for rev to be updated...

    Yep. The OTA did not affect Rev's S-OFF. Guess I'll have to wait for them to update Rev. If that doesn't work, then I'll go HTCDev and root.

    I read on XDA that people can root and still install roms,etc without S-Off. Someone posted that the HTC root breaks 4G and Wifi but I can't post there. Has anyone had this issue? Has anyone been successful rooting with HTC, flashing recovery, roms, kernal, etc? Thanks.

    I have used the HTC official method for unlocking the bootloader.

    Yes it still looks like you are S-ON.

    No it doesn't matter. I've already loaded a recovery, grabbed superusers, and did a rootcheck.

    I haven't done a ton with it yet, though I did grab the MSL reader then uncapped my 3G speeds. When I have time to do more, I will.

    At this thread: [GUIDE]Root Evo 3D!|Win/Mac/Linux|VIDEO WALKTHRU|HTC Unlock Method|08/19/2011 - xda-developers

    They'll tell you how to get the custom recovery on.

    I also don't have any problems with 4G or wifi. I use both frequently, and have continued to do so since making the switch.

    From what I have read yes you should be able to. But if you want to use the Revolutionary root method you could downgrade your hboot to a supported version and run it.
