hey guys, wondering if a local forum will give me better luck here with this problem i have.

so i need the vodafone nz htc sensation RRU  ..... any links anywhere??

i'm in the unfortunate position of having a custom rom flashed to a 2.34  sensation .. with no S-off

i can adb the the thing, i've unlocked the bootloader,  can root it ... but for the life of me i can't get either the revolution or wire trick to work to get S-off.

so ... i can't flash any firmware higher than 2.34 supporting, because no s-off   , so that rules out loading any ICS roms ..  and besides S-on prevents me from flashing other region RRU's

if i lock the bootloader ... the phone bootloops because the current rom is custom ..

only way i see out of it is to somehow get s-off,  maybe i'll try and diff PC ....  OR get the orig vodafone nz RRU ... extract the zip, return the bootloader to a locked state and then flash via HBOOT/sd card ... 

help ?

seems that wire trick is very hit or miss, from what i read it says you need to keep doing it as you will get it,
was that Juopunutbear method

it's more a case of the app not working tho ... both pc apps hang before anything useful can happen ..
