    Question ?
    What is the difference on having (S-on) or (S-off) ?
    S-OFF is unrestricted access to the NAND partitions of the device. You can flash any image files (signed or unsigned) to the device, including firmware updates such as radios, PRI, and bootloader (HBOOT).

    S-ON (UNLOCKED) is restricted access to the some of the device partitions. HTC allows access to the boot, system, & recovery partitions of the device. These can be flashed with unsigned images, allowing for custom recovery, custom ROMs, and custom kernels to be flashed ONLY. All other firmware updates can only be done by "official" means, i.e. returning to stock recovery & taking them via OTA, or relocking the bootloader and running a ROM Update Utility (RUU) from a PC to update.

    While S-OFF offers an advanced/power user more flexibility for customization, for the average user, it isn't really necessary to get the most out of your device.

    Holy Crap!! I got through flashing the recovery, but when I clicked the link to download the su-bin-3.0.3.2-efghi-signed.zip file, it says the file is no longer there!! Where can I get it?

    OK. Found the file, but when I try to install Busybox, the install fails, and says it won't work, and that I need to install a new ROM. Also, when Superuser tries to do a binary update, that fails too. It failed on the last step, and if I try to do it again, it fails when it tries to copy the su file to the /system folder. What can I do?

    Can someone send me the zip file I'm suppose to drag to my sd card?

    ---------- Post Merged at 11:10 AM ---------- Previous Post was at 11:08 AM ----------

    Sorry I clicked the link above but it sends me to an internet site and says can't find the zip file I was looking for. Please help.... I've done everything except that.

    Two days of frustration and multiple attempts using 3 computers and buying root-android.org's service none of which got my evo 4g rooted. Then I found this thread and walked right through it with no problems. Thank you for my rooted phone!

    I really hope someone is still checking this thread.

    How long is the recovery boot supposed to take? I've been going through the steps, everything was working just fine, until the recovery boot. Now I just have a black screen. I can get back to the hboot screen by holding the power and volume button for at least two minutes at a time, but I can't ever get to the screen others have described.

    Cuz it's a great guide! I just got a evo 4g, is the info and download links in this guide up to date? Or is their a better method by now? Also I see people in this thread say bot to use cwm as recovery but rather ra based or something like that, does anyone have a link to download that?
    And what about roms? Which do you recommend.
    TIA
