S-OFF steps for HTC EVO 3D KDDI (shooterk)


Step 1 | Pre-requisites:

  1. Supported Operating Systems:

    We only support Ubuntu 12.04 (and newer) 32bit, you may use a LiveCD if you have the wrong OS installed natively. LiveUSB will NOT work!

    Ubuntu 64bit, Ubuntu versions lower than 12.04, other Linux distros, Virtual Machines and Mac's will NOT work - we will not help you if you break your device!

  2. Ensure that your battery is fully charged.

  3. External SD card (2GB - 16GB) in your device.

  4. The original HTC USB cable for your device.

  5. Perform a full backup or replace your SDcard with one that you are willing to wipe - it is possible that during these steps all data may be lost.

  6. You must be directly connected to a USB 2.0 port on your computer - USB 3.0 and USB hubs will NOT work!


Step 2 | Instructions:

  1. Temproot your phone via any method available - we cannot help with this step and it is required

  2. Download the correct version of ControlBear for your Android version:

  3. Untar ALL files from the download into a new folder

  4. cd into the folder where you extracted and run the following cmd:
    Note: This cmd returns a blank new line if you have done it correctly.

    • chmod 755 Controlbear adb fastboot
  5. Open terminal and cd into the folder where you untarred ControlBear

  6. Put your phone into emulator mode by typing the following:

    • sudo ./adb shell "echo 'ro.kernel.qemu=1' > /data/local.prop"
    • sudo ./adb reboot
  7. Run ControlBear from terminal - sudo ./ControlBear

  8. Follow the on-screen instructions from ControlBear

  9. Do not press any of the buttons on the phone during the process!

  10. You are done when you see "S-OFF SUCCESS"

  11. Once you are done with S-OFF proceedure and ONLY when you are done...
    Exit emulator mode by typing the following into cmd/terminal (with your phone booted into the Android OS)

    • sudo ./adb shell rm /data/local.prop
    • sudo ./adb reboot
