We've been waiting all day for a new project called Revolutionary from AlphaRev and Unrevoked to go live, and that moment is now upon is. This new tool allows S-Off and NAND write access to a whole slew of modern HTC phones, including some devices that have yet to receive a permanent unlock solution:


  • HTC Desire (bravo) 0.93.0001
  • HTC Desire CDMA (bravoc) 1.06.0000
  • HTC Wildfire (buzz) 1.01.0001
  • HTC Aria (liberty) 1.02.0000
  • HTC Incredible S (vivo) 1.09.0000 and 1.13.0000
  • HTC Droid Incredible 2 (vivow) 0.97.0000
  • HTC Desire S (saga) 0.98.0000 and 0.98.0002
  • HTC View (express) 1.09.0000 and 1.13.0000
  • HTC Flyer (flyer) 1.10.0000
  • HTC Sensation (pyramid) 1.17.0006, .0008, .0011 and .0012
  • HTC Evo 3D (shooter) 1.30.0000 and 1.40.0000

The most notable of the bunch is the EVO 3D and the Sensation -- two devices that were previously without a permanent root solution (only perma-temp).

Support for the HTC Thunderbolt is in the works as well, so expect that to be available soon.

It's worth noting that this is still a developer preview, so be prepared to encounter a few bugs (not saying that you will, only that you may).

To grab the download, head over the Revolutionary site, and enjoy.

      Not yet, but sincerely hope it'll come.

    Beautiful, just beautiful! Is there an easy way to root and install recovery on the Desire HD? I tried but I have to downgrade first and to all kind of things and, before I take the risk, I would like to know if there's an easy way.

  • DcMasta

    Slightly upset that there is on OG EVO root with this release. Most likely the exploit they have found is only in sense 2.1 and up....

  • Ahmad Nadeem

    Still no support for wildfire HBOOT 1.01.0002 or the wildfire S............... :(

  • kevin

    I have been trying with my sensation and when it asks for beta key i type it in and it says invalid. Help plz

  • Simon Belmont

    Woot! Sprint HTC EVO 3D S-OFF here I come!

    Thanks to AlphaRev and Unrevoked! You guys rock!

  • kevin

    Just found out this wont work for Tmobile sensation:(

    • Dj

      Yes it does work for Tmobiles Sensation 4G

      • http://www.AndroidPolice.com Artem Russakovskii

        I think it depends on the HBOOT version.

  • Dan

    No DesireHD support yet?

  • gabezermeno

    Doesn't work for dinc 2 gingerbread. There was already a s off method for froyo. This does nothing for me.

      In the same boat. That said, I do congratulate the devs on getting this out! With the EVO3D and Sensation getting s-off, I can't imagine dinc2 2.3 root and s-off is far off. I know those other phones are much higher priority though. Thanks again and look forward to a method for dinc2 2.3!

  • kevin

    The fact that they quote the lemons line from Portal 2 while flashing your phone just makes this amazing.
