Alpharevx and Unrevoked Announcing Something “Revolutionary” – EVO 3D and Sensation 4G S-Off?

Look what just popped up on the interwebz – an interesting page, to say the least. It’s a teaser for an announcement that teams Alpharevx and Unrevoked (who will soon be one in the same) are making later on today. They call it “revolutionary”. The only thing that comes to mind is S-Off (unlocked bootloader) for both the EVO 3D and the HTC Sensation 4G. These teams have been working on both phones since they were launched and it seems they’ll finally be ready to show their progress off to the world. Or maybe they’re announcing the merger of said teams and their new name will be Revolutionary. Unfortunately, it says they’re only “announcing” something later today, not releasing. Who knows? Regardless, we remain excited for any news from the teams who are making great progress in breaking encrypted bootloader hell. Let’s hope for an actual release whenever this announcement is set to go down. [Thanks Silkyjohnson!]

[Update]: Looks like it might be for a release of something “built” between these two teams, as per this tweet. Can you say “excited”?

    Oh man…the thoughts of being able to remove bloatware, use apps like Titanium Backup and eventually throw CM onto my 3D are making me smile. It’s a great morning so far.

      Acrually, if you use TeamWIN’s root method, Fre3vo, you can already use Titanium backup. But, at this point, I’d wait the couple hours and go full S-OFF and get all of that and more.

        Yeah, I’ve done that with temp-root, but I’m more excited about actually having changes stick after reboots. Not to mention SBC kernels and some CM nightlies one of these days…

    It’s definitely gonna be S-Off/Perma-Root because evo in unrEVOked is bolded on the website

      Hate to break it to you, but it’s always been that way. But, I agree that it will be S-OFF for the EVO 3D/Sensation. Super stoked for this. Can’t wait for a stock rooted ROM.

        Not really breaking much to me. The way I see it, it is just that much more subtle. Either way it is out already, so this discussion can pretty much die…

    This should be interesting. I’m feeling a bit skeptical about this whole scenario. While I hope it is s-off that is being released, I do not want to get my hopes up.

    Yeah, I’m hoping it’s more for Gingerbread than 3D/Sensation specific. My 4G wants root. He’s crying for it. Ha.
