Is there any hope for s -off? Or even just full root?

    Just looking to check out the vibe of the people with Rezounds. I've had mine about a week now and love it! Battery is so so but with some development could be great im sure. So whats everyone think with the all might Nexus dropping soon will we be left behind? The forums all seem pretty quite and I can't find to much on the subject except for one guy who thinks he might be close. Evil I believe is what the reference him as. I like so much about this phone I would hate to have to switch. Having an already unlocked phone in my eyes kinda takes the fun out of moding, but I can't live with a fully locked down phone either. What a tough spot to be in.

    I love this phone. I could actually live with it only having temp root. Someone will find some way to get this opened up or get 2nd init ROMs or something. As soon as I dropped Sense for Launcher Pro and froze the rest of the sense launcher...the phone got even better.

    Did you use the temp root method from the rezound forum here or some where else? I looking over at XDA and there is like three different ways to do it, some work longer then others? I just got confused over there so I didn't even try, I don't want to mess anything up. Let me know which method worked best for you and I'll give it a try in a later tonight. That would be a good way to help ease the wait for myself.

    I'm with CombatMedic on this one, I'll believe it when I see it. We already had the carrot dangled with screenshots of a rooted, S-Off'd Rezound back on 11/4 (That thread is right below this one, check it out) and we were told we'd have instructions then...
    12/13, still nothing yet.
    I really hope he's got it, but I certainly won't get my hopes up, nor will I be the first one to try it.

    I just wanted to put all info out there before people got there hopes up. I wanted to kill all of it. If it does get released that really is great!!! But what happened last time was very crappy. hopefully today will be a good day for us!!! i would be very happy with that.

    I have a hard time believing this... over on XDA nothing has been said except about evil, and JCASE was basically saying the current method they were working on wasn't going to work. Now magically he and evil both have achieved S-OFF?... Either way, I'm not touching it until it's been confirmed by MANY users.

    Why am I not surprised. Evil is just a foul mouthed, attention seeking little punk. He has lied to us all from the start. Like others have said here, I will not try any software (s-off and root) until it has been fully tested. I do not trust that guy at all.
