Has anyone S-OFF'd their Rezound on the latest ROM, does the "wire trick" still work on the current OTA firmware and bootloader?
just browsing some threads it looks like the preferred thing to do is RUU back to the last official ISC release, the one prior to the global leak, and then do the wire trick... I still cant find a reason to s-off, I mean it only takes one minute to flash the boot.img manually... other than avoiding this minor inconvenience what other reasons are there?

Infected Rezound currently, using the baked in kernel, started with 2.8.1 and then just flashed in 2.9.1 this last weekend and been running rock solid and smooth as butter on both versions... One reboot in the last 4 days, and all services working including native tethering, bluetooth audio, etc., pretty much everything except HDMI video out is working now in CM based ROMs.
I have been hearing a lot about Beanstock and Liquid Smooth lately though, once they get the last few bugs worked out of Beanstock I am probably going to give that a shot next.
How about you?

Yeah... I see FlyHalf, Neo and some of the other developers tossing tidbits out about Ion lately, but by the sounds of it there is still a ways to go before it's "daily driver" ready. Infection is really solid, especially the newest version, but there seems like so much development in the Rezound ROMs lately I don't know what to try next.
I mean really, Infected Rezound, TRON, MIUI, CyanogenMod, Beanstock, Liquid Smooth, Gotham, XenonHD, PC-Man, VanillaROM, Linaro, AOKP... Arrgghhh, I mean those are just the "latest" 4.2.2 based Jelly Bean ROMs, not to mention all the older ones PLUS I am sure now that Google has started releasing the 4.3 source code, those ROMs will be coming soon as well!
I am up for a new phone, have been since April, but with all the fun I am having with this it is tough to pick something else right now... Now if the HTC One does finally come to Verizon, well, then all bets are off!
The dev community is awesome for sure! Got no reason to upgrade phones at this point. I see an official liquid smooth was released, that was the last rom my d1 ran before the battery died and was so sweet. Gonna give that a try next. Let me know if you try it out...
Unless something drastically changes, I probably won't be going back to Big Red anytime soon... the cost is just too high and I don't really need it, saving $50/month to drop to 3G speeds on AT&T's network is acceptable and 3G/HSPA+ speeds on AT&T are easily 10 times better than VZW's 3G, and 4G I can live without for now. From what I have seen over the last week or so, their coverage is better for data than VZW in the areas that I go (a lot of rural areas some times).
Newer HTC phones haven't been able to be unlocked by HTCdev, not sure about the One... To be honest I doubt it but the phone is so popular that I am sure someone will find an exploit to root and ROM.
