Root & recovery
Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool is your best friend when it comes to unlocking the bootloader (S-OFF) and recovery of your device. Once installed on your phone**** it will allow you to root it easily**** explore various ROMs**** and freely install custom kernels. Follow the steps below to enable S-OFF on your HTC Sensation.
You may need to temporarily deactivate your antivirus and/or firewall software**** as some security programs (e.g.**** Norton Antivirus) flag the Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool as malware**** even if it actually isn’t.
Take note of your device’s serial number. Pull out your phone’s battery and take a look at the label inside the battery compartment. Your handset’s serial number should be printed there**** usually beside the label “S/N”.
Find out the HBOOT version on your handset. With your phone turned off**** press the Volume Down and Power buttons simultaneously for a few seconds. The device will boot to a white screen showing device information**** including the HBOOT version. Take note of the HBOOT version number and reboot your phone after doing so.
Go to the Revolutionary: S-OFF & Recovery Tool website and download the appropriate package for your platform (i.e.**** Linux or Windows). As soon as the package starts downloading**** you will be redirected to a “Beta Key” form. Fill in the form with your device’s serial number and HBOOT version number. Press the “Generate Key” button to get your beta key. Take note of this beta key. You will be needing it when you run the Revolutionary tool.
By this time**** the package file for the Revolutionary tool should have finished downloading. Extract the files into one folder on your computer’s hard drive.
Enable “USB Debugging” from the Settings » Applications » Development screen on your handset.
Connect the HTC Sensation to your computer via USB cable. When asked for a connection type**** choose “HTC Sync” and just ignore warning messages saying your phone could not find HTC Sync.
Launch the Revolutionary tool (revolutionary.exe). A command prompt window will open and will ask you for the beta key.
