    Are you unlocked, rooted, ROM'd? If any of the above, relock, run the nearest RUU(GB/ICS) and that's as good as it gets without S-Off and a tweaked HBOOT.

    OK - here we go - what part of JPBear are you stuck on? Did it fail and then you got stuck on the green arrow? If so, run the program again. What are you using for the wire trick? Use low grade speaker wire - very low grade. Like what comes with a new stereo system 10 years ago. Make sure you are using the same color wire (white/white red/red black/black, etc). I always failed the first time using this wire, re-ran the program and got success the second time.

    What did you do when you got stuck. Give us some detail and I'll try and walk you through it. There are a million problems and solutions on the XDA page and I believe there is an IRC chat somewhere as well.

    Did you battery pull and try to power into your ROM?

    You can't know your phone says "tampered" if you're on the green arrow screen. All you needed to do was re-run the JPBear program and try the wire trick again. So now you are in the bootloader?

    Did you make sure you are running the correct program to match up with the firmware you are on? (Gingerbread vs ICS). What HBOOT are you on? 2.10 2.11 or .......

    Just asking these questions to get a feel for where you are.

    2.11 is GB - make sure you are running the right program.

    Keep at it with the timing. You will get it right. They say it's 1.75 seconds between each touch. Personally, my experience with the speaker wire was "1 touch, fail, 1 touch, BEER!". If it fails, do NOT battery pull, just restart the JP program and let it do it's thing.

    OH!!! - 2.21 is ICS. Make sure you are running the right program.

    I would go here:

    Read carefully. Make sure you have everything in place to do this. If anything is wrong, it won't work. I did this on two different phones. You can do it, just make sure you are informed.

    Good job. Go here to download the RUU - it's an executable program you run from your computer. It will put the originally shipped ROM back on your phone and you are done. It will wipe everything so make sure you are ready to do this.

    I should also mention that this shows "S-OFF" but the bootloader shows as locked. If they do happen to check, VZ will have no idea what S-OFF is, but they will see the bootloader is locked so you probably won't have any problems

    I'm not at home - as far as I remember, that link takes you to the download of an .exe file. Just double click on it and follow the instructions. Do not put it on your phone. You run it right from your PC. It will tell you what to do with the phone.

    Google it - you should be able to find it. If not, I should be able to link you up to it tonight when I get home. Let me now how you do. I'll check in tonight when I have some time

    EDIT: Here, bottom one.

    It takes some time to download but once it finishes, run the .exe. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. Good luck, hopefully you won't have any hiccups.

    No, just have your phone booted normally to your ROM. The .exe will do everything for you. Plug the phone in, make sure USB Debugging is checked so the computer knows the phone is plugged in, run the program. It's fool proof (for the most part!).

    I'm not near a computer for a few hours. Good luck. Report back. Hopefully you have success!
