By on July 30th, 2011

unrevoked was a very popular tool to get S-OFF and turn off NAND protection on older gen HTC Android handsets. However, the guys behind unrevoked have been out of action for nearly the whole of 2011.

Just when everyone thought that the folks behind unrevoked had given up, they team up with AplhaRev to release revolutionary. The team behind AlphaRev has been working on getting S-OFF on the latest batch of HTC devices, with a locked boot loader for quite sometime now.

revolutionary is an S-OFF tool which turns off the NAND protection on the 2011 line-up of Android handsets from HTC, which come with an encrypted boot loader.

Here is the list of devices which the tool supports :

Revolutionary currently supports the following Android phones and HBOOT versions:

  • 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

Revolutionary will permanently unlock NAND write protection by default on the following phones:

Readers should keep in mind that S-OFF does not mean the handset is rooted. To get root access, users need to flash this file via recovery. The tool is in developer preview right now, so interested users need to provide their handsets serial number before they get a download link.
