    Default how will official ICS update affect unlocked bootloader?

    If I unlock my bootloader via HTC's method can I still get the OTA update to ICS as soon as it comes out?

    Good question. I was wondering the same thing.

    I also want to know, how will the official ICS update affect the HBOOT downgrade exploit. Will it fix the vulerability? If I suspect that I want full S-off in the future, should I do it now?

    if your s-off now you will always be s-off with what ever bootloader your on. but the best thing to do is let the dev's do thier thing first. they will pull the updated hboot from the OTA to make it safe to flash. yes i would go s-off now its so much easier to do want you want

    look here........

    are you s-off? i doubt that it will be the same, the ics roms now are based off a leak for the Virgin Mobile 3d and its not official. there is always bugs in a leak version. we will have a working version when its the OTA update

    Are you guys trying my current rom? If so you have to flash it right.

    Try wiping everything first. Use a superwipe.zip, then flash the ics rom of your choice. If it still doesnt work. Dirty flash that bad boi

    I was s-on with hboot 1.5, unlocked with the HTC method, and I couldn't get either of the ICS ROMs that I tried (CleanROM and MeanROM) to work without endless boot loops despite super-wiping and everything. The only thing that worked for me was getting s-off using the wire trick (so I'm still on hboot 1.5). I was then able to run MeanROM without ANY wiping/resetting.

    I know that the developers say you have to wipe everything before flashing their ROMs, and I don't dispute that one should do that to be sure, but in my experience wiping has never made the difference between failure and success.
