    I'm so happy by the replies I got from people on these forums, so I will ask one more question before melting into occasional-lurker status: I made the mistake of getting the MyTouch 4G that already had 2.3.4 and S-ON (probably why it was such a cheap upgrade). I assumed the G2 root method would work with it unaware it was for phone WITHOUT the update.

    Thinking of getting the Sensation, it is gorgeous and I like the specs but just want to be sure I don't run into the same situation. Does anyone know if the Sensations currently available are rootable, S-ON/OFF notwithstanding?

    I bought my Sensation around a month ago.

    As soon as S-OFF was achieved I ran over to XDA and read the instructions for S-OFF, ROOT and flashing CWM. All worked perfectly on my Sensation.

    So to answer your question, yes, the current Sensations are "S-OFF'able" if you follow the instructions on XDA.com

    Sorry for asking such a noob question. But what exactly does S-OFF mean?

    If you have S-OFF then all you need to do is install Clockwork (if you haven't already) and then flash SuperUser using Clockwork.

    Unlocks the bootloader letting you install a custom recovery.

    Apps will appear in the list once you run them again. You're good to go.

    FYI there's a new update out (OTA) if you're gonna root/unlock your bootloader/S-OFF I wouldn't get it.
    First S-OFF your phone and then sit tight and wait for someone to post a zip that is safe to flash.
