HTC - How to Root & S-OFF HTC Sensation - HBOOT 1.27.0000 & Firmware 3.33!

Sensation General - xda-developers - forum.xda-developers.com
Hey Guys.

Due to the lack of simple NOOB Guides I've decided to make one for all the noobs out there.

(Including me. The amount of help I needed was unimaginable!)

This is the way that I found out just by pure luck.

I HOLD NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR A BRICKED PHONE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

STEP 1 - Unlocking the Bootloader.

Visit - www.htcdev.com and pick the Sensation that YOU have.

Here's how you can find out which Sensation you have.

Sensation 4G (T-Mobile) will have a 'customised' T-Mobile case saying 'T-Mobile' in the corner.

Sensation - Vodafone - Will have come with 'branded' firmware. (Vodafone symbol comes up when booting up phone.) Another way of spotting is having random apps. e.g. Music Store.

Sensation (Normal) - Pretty self-explanatory. No symbol when starting up phone, no apps just plain and simple.

REMEMBER TO CHECK USB DEBUGGING

Once you have chosen your correct phone follow the steps for unlocking the bootloader.

When you have completed all the steps on www.htcdev.com you will notice that when you hold 'power' and 'volume down' it says:

***UNLOCKED***

Which obviously means you have unlocked the bootloader.

STEP 2 - Gaining 'S-OFF'

Follow juopunutbear's guide on gaining S-OFF here:

I know - using a paperclip? Trust me, worth every bit of time. If it doesn't work then try and try again.

When you've gained 'S-OFF' you should notice that when you hold 'power' and 'volume down' it says:

***UNLOCKED***

PYRAMID PVT SHIP S-OFF RL

HBOOT: 1.27.0000 S-OFF

Which is great!

STEP 3 - Flashing a new recovery

REMEMBER TO CHECK USB DEBUGGING

The way I gained perm-root was pretty amazing.

Power on your phone.

Check you have USB DEBUGGING Enabled.

Plug your phone into your computer.

Make sure you have drivers enabled. (Unlocking the bootloader should of made you download 'HTC SYNC' for the drivers. UN-INSTALL HTC SYNC.)

Unplug your phone from the cable so it enables you to power off.

Hold 'power' and 'volume down' and press power on 'FASTBOOT'

You've entered FASTBOOT.

Do not touch anything.

Go onto your computer and open up the HTC ALL IN ONE KIT.

In the top right-hand corner you will see a list of recoveries.

Click 4-EXT.

I've done a picture to help in attachments.

Your phone will go through numerous screens etc. but don't worry! It's flashing your new recovery! So long stock recovery!

When it has finished remember to check if it has worked!

When it has then congrats! Now onto root...

STEP 4 - Gaining Root

REMEMBER TO CHECK USB DEBUGGING

The way I gained perm-root was pretty amazing.

Assuming you're doing this straight after the last step then you will not need to enter fastboot again, etc.

If not read through the last step again until OPENING THE HTC ALL IN ONE KIT.

This time in the bottom right hand corner you should see perm-root.

SEE ATTACHMENTS FOR A PICTURE.

Click it and let the program install Superuser and gain root access.

You should see SuperUser installed!

If all goes well then Congrats! You have successfully rooted and S-OFF'd your phone.

Now! Who wants a nice new ROM!?

Sense 4 -

Best ROM (In my opinion):

Hit thanks if I helped, this post took a lot of time and effort!
