S-OFF achieved on HTC One M9, thanks to beaups and jcase

Even though HTC now officially lets you unlock bootloader on your HTC devices, the security lock on NAND partition is still a thing for a handful of users. HTC devices come with S-ON (Security On) by default and turning it off (S-OFF) involves a great deal of expertise, which is a thing of pro developers. But thankfully we’ve people like jcase and beaups who have been doing the hard work for a long time now and have achieved S-OFF on a number HTC devices already.

Now today, jcase has posted a picture of HTC One M9 booted into bootloader mode with *** S-OFF *** showing on the screen. This is exciting news for many users. However, the S-OFF method isn’t available for anyone to use yet. According to jcase, it’s still weeks away for a public release. But Hey! It’s nice to know that S-OFF has been achieved on the device.

Thanks jcase and beaups!
