HTC Sensation Gets S-Off; EVO 3D Sure to Get It, Too

We’re getting there, folks. The team behind alpharevx and Unrevoked – who will be merging into one super team, soon – have hammered away at that lucrative exploit they said they found for HTC’s dual-core devices and have been able to do some great things. Well, one great thing. But it very well will lead the way to several great things.
I’m talking about S-Off, of course, which is encryption-free unlocked bootloader love. Yes, that means someone – anyone – will probably try to get MiUi, CyanogenMod, and other ROMs going on this device. And a whole other smorgasbord of things will be possible that we won’t get into because it’d make this post much longer than it has to be. Anyway, this thing isn’t being made public just yet but we’re happy to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel and it isn’t HTC’s. [XDA, Thanks Swaze!]
